No longer in production.

This attachment fits the AF 400T flash only.

The AFW2 increases the angle covered by the flash. With the attachment the flash will cover the field of view of a 24mm lens on a 24x36 camera and of a 16mm lens on a APS-C DSLR.

Review Date: January 21, 2014 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: $10.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Works well; small, easy to carry

I like this a lot. It's small, and fits nicely in its own little pouch. It fits several flash units. It evens out the light nicely, so even though an AF280T will cover 28mm, I prefer this for that focal length if I need edge illumination. It just makes the shot a little nicer. The reduction in range is modest and worth it for me.
The adapter will cover 24mm, so if I am using my 24-35 zoom I find it very useful.
Just remember-slide it onto the flash from one side- don't try to snap it on.

Pros: Works fine
Cons: Flimsy ish

It does what is says, just be a bit careful mounting it as it's only plastic, ham fisted attempts will require the application of some glue to repair.
