Create separation & depth

Create separation & depth.

Egg crate grids are made up of cells that control off axis light in four directions while maintaining the soft quality inherent in a large light source. They allow you to create separation & depth such as a hair light where you want to control just the light going onto the hair in order to separate it from the background.

Eliminate spill & flare

Eliminate spill & flare

As light is focused into a forward direction through use of an egg crate grid, it can help to eliminate spill light or lens flare.

40-degree spread of light

40-degree spread of light.

The off axis portion of the light is controlled by the cell size. The cell size (measured in degrees) describes the maximum cutoff angle of the off axis light. A 40-degree egg crate is the most popular degree used. Both a 20- and 30-degree are available directly through Light Tools.

Light loss

Light loss.

Light loss at the center axis is minimal at a distance 3 to 4 times the diagonal dimension of the light source. On most models it is less than a 1/4 a stop of light.

Perfect for travel

Perfect for travel.

Egg crate grids are soft grids that collapse down for easy transport and travel.

Included carry case

Included carry case.

Each unit comes with an included nylon carry case.

Easy attachment

Easy attachment.

Egg crate grids easily attach through the use of hook and loop tape. When attaching, place your diffusion panel about 1/2 way in on the hook tape. This will leave enough room for the egg crate to attach directly in front of the diffusion panel.

Up to a 6-year warranty

Up to a 6-year warranty.

Egg crate grids are produced through Light Tools and will include a warranty registration card upon purchase. Most units are offered up to 6-year warranty directly through the manufacturer Light Tools.
