It creates nice catch lights in the eyes and fills in the shadowy areas nicely. It takes next to no room in my gadget bag and weighs nothing. It also doesn't look silly like some diffusers do.
Shooting indoors, it still leaves some specularity which I personally find unpleasant, but since I got it for outdoor fill-flash use, I have no second thoughts about buying it.
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 have a Nikon D50 and SB-600 flash. Prior to this purchased I had some very harsh flash effects such as over exposure on the faces and drastic shadows behind the subjects.
Since then, I feel that I have been able to manage those effects much more easily.
For the cost of the item, I would recommend it to anyone who uses flashes and wants to mute the effects some.
First, what this product is intended to do is diffuse your flash thereby softening it. It acheives this by allowing light to come out in multiple directions and bounce to fill. It's very effective in doing that. The diffuser slips onto your flash and sits about 3/4" up from the top/end of the flash. When the flash fires, light comes out, diffused, from all sides of the diffuser. The diffuser fits my SB600's perfectly. With Velcro on the flash for gels, this is actually almost too tight. The Omni-Bounce is meant to fit snug on the flash so any changes to the outside of the case of the flash will have a negative effect on the fit. So for what it is, a piece of plastic to diffuse and scatter light, it works fine.
The problem I have is the price you pay for a piece of plastic that does such a simple task. If this diffuser were somewhere around $5, I probably would continue to use them. I have however found a much more cost effective and equally, if not better, DIQ diffuser. I took an empty rubbing alcohol bottle (less than $2) and cut the spout and neck off so I had the bottom 4-5" of the bottle. Slip that right over the flash and you have a diffuser. If your bottle is clear, you can take a sheet of tracing paper or wax paper and wrap it around bottle one time to get great diffusion. I secure the paper to the bottle and the bottle to the flash with a couple of rubber bands. If you're using gels, simply put them on the same way you would without the diffuser and slide the bottle over the top.
The inability to use gels with this diffuser is probably the biggest draw back. I don't want to buy or carry multiples of these in different colors.
Hope that helps.
