  1. Hey, neat, a flash mod with no pics of the effect! How ’bout posting another entry when we can see if it works…

  2. I made similar thing just to see what effect this is going to give. Ok, this is interesting, I have a very narrow spot light effect.

    This is kinda cool, but is this really what Grid Spot is supposed to do?

  3. I know it’s an old article, but it’s not that hard to look up what it’s supposed to do. I think it should have been in the story.

    I’ve found articles for better DIY versions of the same AND explanations on what it’s supposed to do. I think it might be a better way to make a spot flash without a long “snoot”.
