About this project

So what is this magical innovation, soon to be fabled - The Sun Disc!? It´s a Bruce Lee approach to photography - small, fast, effective and deadly... eh, on second thought, ignore the last category. It´s a soft-box and reflector in one, easy to carry, foldable, dual sided (daylight/warmlight) tool.

Stick the strobe of your liking into it and give your subject a wonderful soft light! (adjust by distance). 

  •  Reflector and Softbox in one
  •  Works with all speedlights
  •  1 second to unfold and fold
  •  Use any light source when on a light bracket
  •  Fits in those cramped spaces
  •  Invertible for warm/daylight color output
  •  Multiple attachment points
  •  Video light modifier
  •  Anyone can use without looking like a fool
  •  And many more!

The SunDisc will soften up the light/shadow for you, just like when professionals use big soft boxes to get that beautiful light this does it too!

If you look at the image below you can see the difference in using a bare speed light to putting the SunDics on top...

Flip the silver side turning it into a golden side for those late outside portraits with a golden light. Or reverse the effect during the day. The limits are set ONLY by your creativity

The SunDisc is designed to be simple and user-friendly. An indoor shoot where you want to have a close light on a table (for a product shoot) you just fasten the speed light with the flexband that you find on both reflector sides. Slide the speed light foot on and fire away. 

Complex shoots? Then use a speed light holder / bracket and squeeze the SunDisc on it from edge to edge. Stable and durable!
Or why not a flashlight for those video shoots ? 

When you´ve finished the shot, just twist The SunDisc and put it in its bag.

The SunDisc has totally replaced my bigger soft-boxes and has changed the way I shoot. I have far less to carry, and much less to worry about, (like winds and falling stands). And I have the possibility to truly focus on the art of creating wonderful images.

______________________________________________________________________

This Kickstarter is for the completion of the product so that the mass production may start.

I have poured love, passion, knowledge and all my savings into The SunDisc project. I have happily spent more than 1000 hours this past two years designing, getting in contact with different factories, ordering samples, re-designing and so on. To me quality and function is everything That is why I use one of the best quality reflector panels there is, and why production cost is quite high at start. Get a good reflector panel from any famous brand and it will cost you the same as this 3d reflector!

Change back pain and worry into happiness and glory - and become the Bruce Lee of photography.

Risks and challenges

Sometimes underways, my road seemed long, but now I´m really getting there, I´m taking down the sun for you. All that is left is correcting a few details, and then for you to order your own sample of The Sun Disc.

As soon as this Kickstarter kicks in, thanks to the awareness and trust from YOU, we´re good to go.

I have production waiting to start with the factories pending my Go sign. And as soon as founded, they will be able to start immediately. I will personally visit the factory in Taiwan for quality control and arrange the shipping to you all!

If during the campaign orders will surge and wildly exceed the calculated quantity, it might slightly delay the delivery, and the time it will take to receive the order quantity from our manufacturer. But rest assured that we'll do the best we can to abide by the timeline, and will inform you of any updates regarding your product.
