Why do I have to pay customs charges?
Each country determines what it’s customs charges are going to be for each type of imported product. When a manufacturer has a distributor in another country, the distributor will often manage the importing, and pay the customs fees, subsequently working the customs charges into the price of the product. This is why some products sold overseas are much more expensive to buy in one country than in another -- cell phones, are a good example. Because we do not currently have a distributor in any other countries, the consumer will need to pay the customs charges directly to their country of import, as they are not worked into the product price.
Will it work with my flash?
The Kobra band and modifier will fit most speedlight flash units. If you have a question about a specific speedlight, feel free to send us a message.
Unfortunately the Kobra band & modifier will not fit the following small flashes:
Flashpoint Zoom-Mini TTL R2 Flash
Pentax AF201 FG
Some larger flash units, such as the Godox AD200, may be a tighter fit. A small amount of gentle heat, such as from a hair dryer, should warm the band so that it becomes more pliable.
We are also in the process of developing a band to fit on round-head flash units, to be released this coming winter!
Does the silicone yellow?
All silicone does eventually yellow with exposure to UV light, however, the Kobra is produced using a silicone additive that delays yellowing. It will take significantly longer than average silicone products for yellowing to occur, and the amount of exposure to UV light will have an effect on this.
To switch from horizontal to vertical, do you need to modify the position of the Kobra Band?
You do not need to move the band, only turn the modifier 90 degrees.
Is there a forum where users can discuss the use of the Kobra and share photos?
