Product Description


The Sto-fen OM-400 Omni-Bounce Flash Diffuser for Nikon SB-400 is designed to custom fit the Nikon SB-400 strobe. You don't have to use velcro to attach the diffuser and it is small enough to fit easily into your pocket or gadget bag. The Omni-Bounce creates a diffused light effect, giving even coverage across your subjects. It can be used with lenses as wide as 15mm to 200mm long. The Omni-Bounce goes on and off of your flash in seconds because it is custom fitted, so no velcro is required.

I have used my flash straight on, as well as all the angles between straight an 90 degrees upward.

I found that bouncing the flash off of the low, white ceiling without the diffuser created the best shots for the ceremony.

I've been using my Nikon SB-400 a lot with this newer camera, and I never use it without this diffuser.

First off, and maybe most importantly, there are two groups of people who like to comment on flash diffusers...the first group likes to pull their pants up a little over their belly, albeit momentarily, and then makes some comment about a cheaper way to go. Like "I just tape a business card on my flash and cover it with a pair of old panty hose and it didn't cost nary a penny." So yes, this is a simple piece of plastic. We are paying 15 whole dollars for a piece of plastic, ok?

The second group includes me, where I don't bother pulling my pants up over my belly anymore and I whip out the $15 like I am made of money. And it works GREAT. I expected to use it when ceiling height or color was not ideal, or for portrait shots. During my sophisticated experiments (sitting in pajamas and bath robe taking pictures of the crap on my kitchen table) I was surprised that the lighting with the diffuser (flash set at the first click like Sto-Fen suggests) was superior to using the flash without the diffuser - direct or at any angle. There were no ultrabright spots and the lighting was very nice. Buy it. (Look at my other reviews and you will see that I am not always smitten with products.)

This little gadget makes a huge difference in my digital pictures - between harsh lighting and smooth illumination. I'm still pretty new at using my Nikon D40x Digital SLR Camera, and I appreciate anything that helps to make my pictures better.

It might be possible to save the cost of a diffuser gadget like this by rigging up something out of thin plastic, paper clips, rubber bands and (for all I know) chewing gum. But I don't know how, and anyway when I'm taking pictures I usually don't have a lot of time to fiddle around with my camera first. This diffuser is small and easy to carry, and snaps on and off the Nikon SB-400 AF Speedlight for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras in a second.

Unless and until I become a professional photographer diva and can order everybody around me to hold everything until I get my camera all twiddled with and set up, I'm glad that I can use things like this diffuser to catch the best pictures I can as a happy amateur snapper.

UPDATED on August 21, 2013: I'm still an amateur photographer, but now I'm playing with a Nikon D5100 instead of a D40x. I've been using my Nikon SB-400 a lot with this newer camera, and I never use it without this diffuser. I get such good well-lit shots of friends and family with the SB-400 + this diffuser, that now I keep it on my camera most of the time. I know the SB-400 is considered entry-level as the Nikon external flash units go, but with this diffuser I've never wished I had a different flash unit. Looks like I'm set for quite awhile with the current equipment.

I purchased the Sto-fen diffuser primarily because I was worried about the SB-400 not swiveling for vertical shots. With a little practice you get nicely lit shots without the typical harsh lighting associated with flashes. It works very well for illuminating the entire shot --- it's one subtle difference I've noticed between a diffuser and a bounce card. I do like using both but if you want to capture objects in the background the diffuser is the way to go (the bounce card tends to highlight the main subject while background items are darker).

I know there are a lot of DIY diffusers out there but this one isn't too expensive and isn't bulky. Very nice product.

I own an SB400 flash and looked at this diffuser attachment. First, like the diffusion adapter that comes with the SB800, it's a bit bulky and takes excess space. Secondly, it costs. Thirdly, you can lose it.

Much easier way to bounce and diffuse an SB400: tape a white business card to the top of the flash so it hangs off the front. Bend the card at the middle upward to a 45 degree angle. Tilt the flash tube upward 90 degrees so it dumps the light into this mini white card. Shoot the photo.

You can leave the card on the flash, fold it up and stick the whole thing in the SB400's cute little carrying case. Zero cost. Replace it when it wears out.

By the way, the SB400 in a room with an 8-10' white ceiling works really well by simply rotating the flash tube up 90 degrees. By design, the exact amount of light emits from the edge of the SB400 flash when it's pointed upward. This gives a perfect amount of fill light and the very important eye highlight. You really only need the diffuser or this whitecard trick if the ceiling is so high the flash runs out of gas. The "before and after" photos shown here would look exactly the same if you simply point the flash tube toward the ceiling.

I also found that pointing it up at less than 90 degrees allows too much light to go forward and overexposes the upper half of the frame. If I use the tilting flash at all, it's always up the full 90 degrees.

Diffuses flash pretty well if you're in a low light high ceiling place. If the ceilings are low enough, bouncing the flash off the ceiling still produces more natural lighting.

This works great at parties, banquets, restaurants, weddings when you need a fill light or as a diffused single light source.

NOTE: make sure to set your Nikon to the "Flash" white balance setting and adjust it a little lower (-2) or to manually set your white balance using white paper. If not your pics will look a little too cool.
