The Lastolite Joe McNally Uplite Kit is similar to the standard cool tone Uplite but with an important addition: a 2 stop diffuser panel.
the cooltone Uplite, two 3 x 4’ lightweight frames clamshell together
with a joint at one end. The reversible Sunlite/Soft Silver and
Silver/White reflective materials stretch over the frames. Of course,
since you’re bouncing fill light up onto your subject, the topmost

reflective one. Color balance of the fill is determined by how
imaginatively you gel the flash
