Nikon D200

I use the Soft Screen on a Nikon D200. It won't get you professional results but it does diffuse the harsh light from the built-in strobe. It's worth taking a few seconds to put it on by sticking it in the hot shoe and folding over the flash and around the name plate. I usually bump the output up a little. I feel it would work even better if it retained that curved shape. It tends to stay flat against the strobe.

handy for an emergency

By

from Minnesota  -  Photo Enthusiast

I carry one of these in my camera bag all the time, since it takes no space. It's not like having professional lighting, but it does reduce the harshness, so helps. It's an inexpensive and useful little tool.

Love this handy item

By

from norwalk, ct  -  Photo Enthusiast

This item really softens the light from the pop up flash. A lot of flash photos are much better with this easy to install device. I even hold it over the hot shoe flash at times. It's a lot easier than than hauling out the diffusers that you have to add on to the flash. This is a great pickup

very handy diffuser

By

from norwalk, ct  -  Photo Enthusiast

when I get lazy and dont want topn use the hot shoe flash, this little diffuser softens the harsh flash you get from mthe pop up flash, making my photos more appealing. I'm not good with flash and usually try tom avoid flashn photos, but this item makes me try more.

Directions poor

By

from Ithaca, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

Directions require trimming the hot shoe insert for Canon DSLR's. 1 side for "EOS" or 1 side for "Rebel." I have an EOS/Rebel. Which side would you trim and how much? Of course, I did the wrong side and it now won't stay in hot shoe. A waste of $.

Great extra to have in camera bag!

By

from Richmond, VA  -  Casual Photographer

I found the flash on my Rebel to be harsh during night photography and it washes out the subject (especially little red spider). I was using piece of white printer paper, but it was hard to hold in place. I love this little diffuser. I am sure there are additional flashes and assessories that would be more professional, but I am not to that level yet (experience or financial). I have found it also works well indoors. For the price, this difusser is great and does exactly what I needed!

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JEFFREY B  Professional photographers recommendation
deb w  Is there a diffuser that works on the accessory flash that comes with the Olympus OMD-em! camera?
Leonard L  Deb, I'm not familiar with your camera, but it is designed to work that way. Sorry I can't help more (consider asking Norman at Adorama)
deb w  Can this be used on the Olympus OM-D EM-1 camera? The "pop up" flash fits into the hot show, so I am not sure where it would attach. Thanks.
INDRANIL S  Not sure. I don't own an Olympus camera and so not in a position to comment.
