Why doesn’t the MagBox have a bounce plate to block the hotspot?
The MagBox was designed from the ground up to deliver the most even light at the diffusion panel. We harnessed the directionality of speedlite flashes and designed a single diffuser to be evenly illuminated so there is no bounce plate needed. The lack of an inner-diffusion baffle, or deflector plate, is actually by design!
