Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have been symbolized as pestilence, war, famine and death respectively. To me however it symbolizes four strobes in a single blast...hehehe. I came about this device by accident rather than my usual "out hunting for gadgets" runs. At first it looked to have been designed wrongly as the distance between the flash mounts were rather too close to mount any standard speedlite.

Then I remembered, I don't have standard speedlite which are bulky because I'm using ultra slim speedlites and for RM50 this device might actually work..hahaha. A couple of twist and turns and angling later...behold~The Four Strobes of the Apocalypse...Muahahahahahahahaha <- evil laughter.
Second pic shows the completed setup with a shoot through umbrella. A warning for those intending to mount this onto a light stand; make sure that you get a heavy light stand and not those flimsy ones as 4 speedlites with an umbrella makes a perfect recipe for "crashing speedlites into a pile of plastic" (you have been warned :) )


  1. hmm.. wonder if i will get a chance to play with it ... hehhehe

  2. haha next workshop hooi sun :)
