Oct .27.2022
Underwater snoots are popular tools underwater macro photographers use to add contrast, color, and black backgrounds to their photos. They operate by reducing the beam width emitted from an underwater strobe via a physical barrier (e.g., plastic cone) or fiber optics. The Marelux Smart Optical Flash Tube (SOFT) is a revolutionary, new, high-end snoot packed with features that make it a must-have piece of equipment for any macro shooter’s kit. It is equipped with a unique design that uses optical lenses to condense light emitted from a strobe while simultaneously reducing the beam width. This means you don’t need to fire your strobes at as high of power to get the same output as a traditional snoot - ultimately allowing you to shoot black background photos in brighter daytime conditions. Moreover, the SOFT is equipped with essential tools like a built-in aiming light, a quick-release mount, and an aperture/iris control to adjust beam width.

"Personally, I think the Marelux SOFT should be at the top of the list for any macro photographer who is looking for the easiest to use snoot. While it's not the most affordable snoot on the market, it's not all that much more than its competitors - and certainly less than buying a flash to go with your snoot. The SOFT has all the bells a whistle a DIY snoot can't replicate. From the aiming light to the iris to the quick release mount....I'm sold!"
