Strobepro Optical Snoot Kit



More optical snoots are on the way.  Orders containing an optical snoot will be shipped once all stock is available.

Enhance your creativity

Create more interest in your portraits by projecting patterns on your background or subject using the four included gobos.  Colour gels can also be used with the system.

Ultimate Control

The Strobepro Optical Snoot can create focussed or defocussed patterns simply by adjusting the focus on your attached lens.  Adjusting zoom will dramatically adjust the size of the pattern.

Metal Construction

The Strobepro Optical Snoot is well ventilated and made of metal to withstand hundreds of consecutive flashes. Disclaimer: Please see the special notes below.

More Gobos?

Check out our new arrivals for the optical snoot: Gobo Set 2, Gobo Set 3, and Gobo Set 4.

Special Notes: 

1. The Strobepro Optical Snoot requires a Canon EF or EF-S lens (or a lens adapted to the mount) to focus its patterns.  The effect is not visible without a lens.  We recommend a short to mid telephoto zoom lens.

2. Modelling lights can be used for short intervals, but should not be used at all when colour gels are installed.

    Excellent product - very happy I got it

    Excellent product - very happy I got it. I am a Nikon shooter, so I had to buy a used lense (Tamron 28-200 for $50). Works great!. One thing that could improve the experience - it is not easy to insert the gobo plates between the light and the lense: those metal washers, where the gobo goes, could be wider and wider spaced. Still love it and looking forward to many exciting lighting experiments. Love customer service!

    For size and price, not bad

    I wanted something functionally comparable to the profoto zoom spot, which is a very large, heavy, and expensive piece of equipment. This does accomplish a result that I’m happy with at a good price and a reasonable size (way easier than rigging complicated gobos and flags) but the biggest limitation is a significant loss of light especially using a cheap f/3.5 or f/4 zoom lens when throwing a wide projection. A 640ws strobe at full power does not output enough light to shoot at f/8 without going very high in ISO, and the modeling light can only be seen in very dark ambient light.

    I've been a professional photographer since over 10 years now and have struggled making DIY gobos which are never precise and eventually break or get damaged , not to mention they are huge and not easy to pack and transport. With this tool I was able to shoot more than 5 varieties of patterns within a few seconds. Also a bonus are the projection slides which allow you to project all kinds of images on the backdrop.Last but not least is that you can combine the different patters with gels which are provides too. The only downside of this product is that I now think ill need at least 2 more to complete my kit!
