Product Description


The Omni-Bounce creates a Diffused Bare Bulb Effect. Giving even coverage across the entire frame, with lenses from 15mm to 200mm in the 35mm format. (And equal in other formats as well.) The Omni-Bounce is easy to use and goes onto and off of your flash in seconds with custom fitting, except UNI, and No Velcro. Designed for years of service with out the bulk of some other Diffusers, it is small enough to fit easily into your gadget bag or pocket.

I bought this with my Digital Rebel package because it seemed like a wise investment. Also, I read a couple reviews elsewhere that recommended it.
However, I have found that I generally don't need it because the 420EX is so intelligent. Given that the 420EX gauges the scene and adjusts itself accordingly, to decrease the amount of flash further may underexpose the shot.
The Omni-Bounce is handy if you need a really soft light, especially close-up. (The underexposing issue seems more significant as distance gets greater.) So, it can be useful for portraits, shooting something reflective or for fill-flash.
The other problem I have is the price; $16.95 for a simple piece of plastic is rather absurd, really. A quarter the price would be more fitting.

This seemingly simple piece of molded plastic was recommended to me by a professional photographer. Basically it's the shape of an open box that slides firmly onto the flash. It is small and sturdy enough to stash in your camera bag without worrying about damage. When used the light disperses more evenly and is less harsh on the subject being photographed.

The white box is for general use. Also available are the green Omni-bounce for florescent lighting and the gold Omni-bounce for a warming effect.

PROS:

Inexpensive solution for better flash photography.

A quality product that works.

CONS:

None

This is a simple device, and can seem pricey for a one-piece shaped chunk of plastic. However, it can really make a great improvement in flash photography. As a portable flash 'helper' it's great, and diffuses and softens the output from the flash pretty nicely. As the distance to the subject increases, you'll rapidly get less light from the flash with this device attached, so for full-body shots at 70mm or so you may want to remove it, or at least try several flash options (which is probably good advice in general). With the flash pointed straight up and this diffuser attached, you may get more direct light on a fairly close subject than without it.

All in all, it was a worthwhile purchase that expands my options for flash photography.

bought it for my Canon 420EX, snug fitting on the top of the flash, and will not fit if left on the flash in the stock Canon flash bag. Other than that a definite add to your gear list, makes the flash alot less harsh especially in close range, provide a nice glow. it obviously reduces max range of flash, but makes for better composition especially on people.

It fits the flash perfectly, thought a bit tight. It does the job softening the light. Combined with a off-shoe cable, you can be very creative.

It diffuses speedlite flash perfectly. Perfect tool for making the flash light spread to the subject compare to a bounce card.

This flash diffuser is a great little product, a very simple device, in fact you could probably make one yourself, but for only twenty bucks it's worth it. I've been shooting lots of flash pictures where the subjects face burned out when I got in close. With the Omni-Bounce it definitely softens the quality of the light and reduces the harsh highlights. It's not always 100% percent effective, and it reduces the effective flash to subject distance, but does make a BIG difference. I like the overall softening of the light quality in any case. I recommend it.

It works well, but is overpriced for just an translucent piece of plastic.
