Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce

Great in a small room having a white reflective surface to bounce light off of the walls and/or ceiling. Otherwise if you don't bounce the light with this, you won't see a difference in most other applications; will look the same as bare flash as light is just dispursed everywhere. Softens shadows on subject nicely.Keep flash at 45 degrees (or 60 degrees) to get best results while bouncing off white/reflecting wall/ceiling.

Performs up to expectations and definetly recommended if you're going for the effects it accomplishes.Asim [...]

Works as advertised

I have one of these and use it all the time with my 580EX flash. So, when I bought a 580EXII, I immediately ordered another one. However, the 580EXII is a slightly different design (it has a rubber seal on the seam), and this doesn't fit quite so well. It fits, but you have to force it on and I'm concerned repeated forcing will damage the rubber seal on the 580EXII flash.

NICE!

By

This works to diffuse the harsh light from the flash, the light 'washes' over someone's face, for example, rather than 'spot lighting' them. Very Uncomplicated to use - simple is very often the best and it sure is here. WELL worth the $$

Great Diffuser

By

from Glastonbury, CT  -  Photo Enthusiast

For most circumstances, the single most important flash/speedlite accessory a budding photographer can buy is a good diffuser. The Sto-Fen Omni is made in sizes that fit most all modern speedlites and is the 'gold standard' for creating softer, more usable light. Buy one; it works!

A must have

By

A must have to reduce the harsh light coming from a high power flash such as the 580EX 11.

Love it!

I been using this for about a month now. I must conclude that my pictures are so much better with the Sto-Fen Omni Bounce. This product is a no brainer and a must have.

Excellent for diffusing light

By

from San Mateo, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is never removed from my Canon 580 EX flash unit. It is perfect for bounce flash applications. Interestingly, it also seems to open doors for me For whatever reason, when people see my camera with the diffuser on the flash they assume I'm a professional photographer. It has allowed me to get shots otherwise unavailable to me. After looking at my camera gear, the most common question people pose is, "Who do you work for?" Not a bad additional benefit to the diffuser!
