Great Accessory for my Canon 580ex II

Works great to soften the flash. Great for people and for reducing the shadow cast for inside photo. A great soft fill flash for outdoor photography.

Only fits if the flash has no Velcro

The only thing I tried to use this for was to attach it to a Canon 580EX or 580EX II. But both of them had Velcro strips for attaching other diffusers. These prevented the Flashpoint Flash Diffuser from sliding onto the flash heads. Make sure you are not going to use any other type of diffuser that requires Velcro strips before ordering this one.

A great inexpensive item to have in your arsenal. Get rid of that flash look and even out your light with this item.

Good diffuser for the money

By

from Minneapolis, MN  -  Photo Enthusiast

I just got this and so far it seems like a good product. The light output is more even than a bare flash with a slightly more intense spot in the middle. It doesn't slide on easily, so it may take a few seconds and will require 2 hands. Once on, it seems to stay put well.

Very useful

By

from TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is great for diffusing the light from your external flash. It is very snug, but perhaps too snug. The first few times I used this it took my a good 5 minutes to get this over the flash head. Great product and I highly recommend it.

is useful

If you can't bounce the flash, the diffuser will take a lot of the harshness out of the shot..works for bounce also. My big complaint is I have to play with it to attach it. once attached it stays.
