Zoom Flash

A Flash unit with a moveable light source in the flash. The source can be drawn into the body of the flash housing. The further into the housing the more the beam of light from the flash is narrowed by the sides of the housing. The effect or narrowing the beam makes the light a smaller source giving it a harder rather than softer effect. A similar but more marked effect can be achieved using a snoot.
