The Light Shaping Device (LSD) works like a projector which takes light from your flash and pilot light to create a beam with a sharp image at the focus distance. The LSD uses elements like a lens, mask and a diffuser to generate the light beam.
By turning on the pilot light you can see accurately how the image will appear before you press the shutter button. This way you can quickly find the right position for your LSD and start shooting.
The strong directional and collimated beam of the LSD is perfect for playing with the position of your flash relative to the subject. Use it for side lighting or back lighting.
The powerful LSD can also be use for wide angle shots. This is especially interesting once we get closer to the subject.
