4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful product, yes it is a cheap piece of plastic, May 15, 2009
This review is from: Stofen Omni-Bounce unit for the SB600 OM-600 flash diffuser (Electronics)
I read 1-star reviews here and will agree this product is simply a frosted piece of plastic that happens to fit on your SB-600. I made the mistake of thinking the SB-600 has a built in bounce card, so I cannot compare this product to a bounce card yet. If you are creative, you could probably make something similar to this with scraps of packaging that other products came in and rubber bands.

However, having spent the money for this product, and comparing the results to the built in camera flash bare, as well as the SB-600 bare, I think it helps diffuse the light better than the built in SB-600 diffuser. So far, in near pictures (subject closer than 15 feet and with a ceiling) I prefer using this product and bouncing it off the ceiling straight up or maybe 65 deg. For farther subjects or wide open out door evening pictures, straight on with this diffuser helps minimize harshness compared to bare, straight flash.

If you are creative, make yourself something at home. If not, then it is a useful tool to have but I removed a star because I too think it could be priced a little lower. A 4 GB SDHC card from here on amazon is cheaper than this product and probably a better deal for $10-$15.

I agree you could make something yourself. Consider your time, how durable the product you make would be, and how you would feel taking picture with some home made rig falling off your camera. Suck it up, it is the smallest investment in your camera bag. It's not a solution to every shot, but what is?
