Traditional V-flats are fragile and unwieldy—not exactly qualities you're looking for on a road trip. The Strobepro Rapid V-Flat will become your new favourite travel companion, setting up or packing down into its convenient carry bag in minutes.
Please note that we have updated the Black/White fabric so it no longer has the bungee toggles. Feedback from customers was that they were a little annoying to deal with. Instead we've woven a rigid polymer into the corners for ease of use. If you're struggling to install the fabric by yourself, take a look at this quick video for a quick modification you can do. https://youtu.be/VPk8jdJk1Rk
The included fabric is black on one side, and reflective white on the other. Simply flip your assembled V-flat panels around to change their function. Use them for bounce, negative fill, or as go-betweens. Once you start using V-flats you'll wonder how you ever went without them!
Cost is usually what causes photographers to resort to DIY foam core over purpose-built V-flats. Our V-Flats come in at an aggressive price-point and with additional features not found on competing products. Strobepro wants to democratize these amazing tools!
Like all V-flats, the Strobepro Rapid V-flat can stand up using the fold between the two panels as its base. Unique to the Rapid V-flat, its included feet allow each half to stand on its own. Separate your panels without the need for clamps and extra rigging to hold them in position, or swing your panels all the way open for maximum surface area.
At 2.4 m (almost 8 feet), these V-flats are taller than the competition while still fitting under standard 8-foot ceilings. You'll really appreciate that extra bit of verticality when shooting taller subjects.
Want to use your new V-flat frame as a translucent scrim? It'd seem a waste not to offer that option. The material provides 1/4 stop diffusion. Select the optional diffusion fabric from the dropdown menu for a modest extra cost or buy it at a later time here.

Exceptionally well made, the fact that are made of aluminum is put them in different level. Easy to set up and transport, adequately priced and the delivery of the product was on time. I am in the process of ordering another set.
Howdy I ordered Strobepro delivered very quickly. Living close to Moo town helps I guess. Assembly for the frame was straight forward. For the reflector material I watched the video but the design has changed a bit the extra "string" for the corner is no longer there. I fought with it for a bit. I was going to have My wife help, which would have worked for sure. Then it struck Me. It comes with zip ties. Use a zip tie on each of the top corners to keep them somewhat in place, then connect the bottom. Once done adjusted the top to ensure they are in properly. Problem solved. Would I buy again? You bet. I was considering V-Flats for a while but foam core is easily damaged in a studio or during shipping. Only used it once so far worked well. I messed with the diffusion panel I also procured. I used the Stella constant light to light it up through one and the other using the reflector side. Worked as advertised. I was shooting a local realtor for his website for My first head shots. I was quite pleased with the results.
So much better than other V-Flats. Nice and tall, yet fit in an average room height
this is a very good product with good quality
Excellent build quality,,,good choice of materials used,,,performs above expectations
