Perfect and painless fit for SB-400

The title says it all: it's compact, useful, and it fits like a glove. A total no-brainer, and a must have for SB-400 owners.

Limited to Certain Situations

The SB-400 is a great little complact flash by itself. I love the light quality when it is bounced off the ceilling. I needed a diffuser when shooting indoors where ceilling bounce was not an option. I found that this diffuser did not work well when used with direct flash. I did a couple test shots using direct flash with and without the diffuser. The difference was minimal.

The SB-400 is a great little complact flash by itself. I love the light quality when it is bounced off the ceilling. I needed a diffuser when shooting indoors where ceilling bounce was not an option. I found that this diffuser did not work well when used with direct flash. I did a couple test shots using direct flash with and without the diffuser. The difference was minimal. Although it worked better when the flash was tilted at 45 degrees with the diffuser. I'd much rather use ceilling bounce without the diffuser but if that's not an option this diffuser does make a difference. I've gotten better results using a home made bounce card out of paper. So in the end it comes down to price. You can probably live without this product but with the price, it won't hurt your wallet to keep one in your bag.

Stops that deer caught in headlight look

By

from Atlanta Georgia  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use it to soften the bright glare of the flash. Most often I use it when I am pointing the flash straight at my subject. When I bounce the light, I think the flash does fine without the diffuser. I have only had a short time, so, who knows? I may start using it for every single shot. I am very happy with this purchase reguardless. And thank you to Adorama for the super fast, safe shipping I have come to expect with every order.

Adds Versatility To My Nikon SB-400

By

from South Carolina  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this at the same time I bought my Nikon SB-400 flash. The combination of the flash with all of its flexibility with the tilting head, etc. and the Omni-Bounce allowed for a lot of creativity and flexibility when a flash is called for in a shot. It's worth the money.

Does the job well!

By

from Beverly, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

If you want soften and spread the light your getting from your flash then this does the job... Especially if your on a budget. It fits real snug on the SB-400 and is well constructed. I hardly ever take it off of my flash and I only do that, so that I can fit the flash back into the travel pouch that it came in.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
STEVEN W  I thought it would be good to have, to improve the function of the flash; it does help, a little, to soften the light.
Shopper  is this a universal diffuser?
DAVID R  Universal? Do you mean universal mount? It works with every hot-shoe mounted flash or speedlight I am aware of. As far as a universal design for light modifiers...there are a wide variety of diffusers that accomplish different effects.
Shopper  The flash in the picture is not a SB400?
RICHARD L  Correct - it looks more like a SB-900 or similar. The Sto-Fen is similar to the one for the SB-400.
