Tucson, Arizona based photographer Spencer Boerup has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a new, magnetic system of mounting flash modifiers that works with almost any strobe. "For photographers, attaching a flash modifier is a chore," Boerup says. "Either you need a special mount designed just your flash, or you have to use velcro, elastic, or a whole slew of other materials just to get your modifiers to stay in place." Magmod promises to change it all. Each Magmod modifier attaches to your speedlight by magnetising to the MagGrip, an elastic,one-size-fits-all band that stretches around the flash head. The system is modular - in addition to the MagGrip, it currently includes the MagGrid honeycomb grid and the MagGel Kit, which comprises a gel slot and various colour temperature modifying gels. You can add as many modifiers as you want, simply stacking one on top of the other. Interested readers are encouraged to visit the project's Kickstarter page.
