Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce for Canon 430EX II

I am a professional photographer and the one thing missing in my bag was a flash difusser. I have always wanted a Gary Fong Diffuser but am very detailed about reviewing products. After reviewing the Fong and the Sto-Fen, I found that they pretty much worked the same and that the Sto-Fen "looked" more prefessional and less like having a bulky piece of tupperware on your flash.

I am a professional photographer and the one thing missing in my bag was a flash difusser. I have always wanted a Gary Fong Diffuser but am very detailed about reviewing products. After reviewing the Fong and the Sto-Fen, I found that they pretty much worked the same and that the Sto-Fen "looked" more prefessional and less like having a bulky piece of tupperware on your flash. I also read alot of complaints about how the top to the Fong would fall off, the bulkiness of the diffuser and how you could not alter the direction of the flash, ever. I decided to go with the Sto-Fen and am so glad I did. The diffuser is custom made to fit this particular flash so it does not fall off yet is easy to remove. The diffuser gives a nice finish to the photos like I desired getting rid of any harsh or white-out lighting from a direct flash. I highly recommend this diffuser to anyone looking to add to their bag. Have fun!

This'll help a little late until you get a softbox, or learn to deftly use the manual controls on your flash.

Simple and effective

By

This is a simple yet effective diffuser for my Canon 430 ex II Speedlite external flash. It fits well and does the job by softening the light produced by the flash. The only "con", which isn't really a con of the Sto-Fen, is that the Canon Speedlite case isn't large enough to fit the flash and the diffuser.

I use the bounce for portrait shots indoors and outdoors. The Sto-Fen diffuses the light and reduces the harshness of the flash on faces.
