While all the MagMod components are available individually, the Starter Kit 2 and Professional Flash Kit 2 are useful packages that combine the key elements. The Starter Kit 2 includes the MagMod MagGrip 2, MagSphere 2, and MagGrid 2. The Professional Flash Kit 2 adds the MagMod MagBounce 2 and Pro Correction Gels.
A simple drawstring bag is provided in the kit to accommodate the modifiers and keep them clean.
MagMod MagGrip 2
The MagMod MagGrip 2 is constructed from durable, stretchy silicone that enables it to fit on a flashgun while its magnets provide the means of attaching the system’s modifiers.
MagMod MagSphere 2
The original MagMod MagSphere quickly became a go-to diffuser for many strobe users. The MagSphere 2 is an upgraded version that also makes flash light omnidirectional for softer output. Like its predecessor, the MagSphere is made from white silicone which is flexible, but it’s 40% lighter and weighs just 88g. Its base has a couple of magnets that hold it on the MagGrip 2.
MagMod MagBounce 2
Like the MagBounce, the MagMod MagBounce 2 is designed for use on upward-facing flash. Instead of bouncing off a ceiling the light bounces off, and is diffused by, the white silicone to expand the apparent flash size by over 300%.
MagMod MagGrid 2
The silicone MagGrid delivers a 40° light pattern and unlike most lighting grids, it’s flexible so it won’t chip or dent. It weighs less than 49g and is more compact that its predecessor. Like the other MagMod modifiers is has magnets to hold it on the MagGrip.
MagMod Pro Correction Gels
MagMods Pro Correction Gels make the most significant upgrade on their predecessors because rather than being made from thin, flexible gel that requires a holder, they are constructed from rigid polycarbonate. Not having to mount the gel in a holder makes the new Pro Correction Gels quicker to use and they mount magnetically to the MagGrip 2.
MagMod includes a 1/4 CTO (Colour Temperature Orange), 1/2 CT, Full CTO, 1/2 CTB (Colour Temperature Blue), Plus Green, and an 8x ND (Neutral Density) in the Pro Correction Gel kit. The coloured gels are designed to enable the output from the flash to colour-match the ambient light while the 8X ND gel effectively reduces the flash output by 3 stops.
