Technical Details


Product Description

Enhance the quality of light coming from your on-camera flash with the OM-600 Omni-Bounce Diffuser from Sto-Fen. Designed for select flashes, this diffuser slides onto the flash head and will diffuse the light output, producing softer shadows and a more natural glow rather than the harsher effect created when using a direct flash. The diffuser also helps to provide even coverage across the entire frame which is especially useful for wide-angle shooting. Fits Nikon SB-600; Phottix Mitros and Mitros +; Panasonic DMW FL 360E; Nissin Di466; Olympus FL36; Fujifilm EF-42; Photoflex Starfire Digital; Sunpak PZ-42X.

This diffuser is the same quality as the one that comes with the Nikon SB 800 flash. It is much better than other aftermarket diffusers that require velcro. This is made to fit the SB 600 perfectly. It snaps on and off easily. Angled at 75 degrees it provides excellent fill. I use it on the SB 600 set up as a slave with the SB 800 for fill and back lighting. It should have been included by Nikon as original equipment but is inexpensive and cost effective. Much better than the built in plastic flat diffuser.

The Omni-bounce on my SB600 works like a champ for outdoor portraiture. I got it to reduce the hotspots when using direct flash, and it does exactly that. It also provides more even lighting for fill-flash...which I use a lot.
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.

set the diffusion to 'stun' when you don't want your flash to 'kill' with harsh, sharp, shadowy edges. yes, you need this if you have an sb-600. why? nikon doesn't make a diffuser for that model. basically, it fits snugly on the tip of the flash, slides off and on easy, will also protect your flashbulb from acidental nicks, like that macro shot of the benihana chefs. here's what it does: diffuses your flash without having to go all into your menu settings and make adjustments. simple, Sherlock. the omni-bounce (what an imaginative name for a piece of shaped plastic) performs as expected, no real cons, except shipping adds almost 50% to the price, so check your local camera shop to see if they have it in stock before ordering.

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 have used this for a few months now and have really noticed a difference in my photos.

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.

A bit overpriced for what it is, but what photographic supply isn't, eh? The proper Omni Bounce diffuser is always worth having for your flash unit, though, so just suck it up and pay for one. This is the Omni Bounce I bought for my Yongnuo YN-468 II and the fit is great. Yes, it's a "crush" fit, meaning there's no "click" of a clip or snap but it definitely stays put, so I'm not sure why some reviewers are saying the fit of this diffuser is loose on their '468. This Omni Bounce is just as effective as any other I've owned and I wouldn't be without it. For those times when you can't bounce flash, or need more power without flash "wash out", this is the accessory to have.

This Diffuser fits the flash unit, "Sunpack".. PZ42X... That was my question, no one could answer. But I took a chance and bought this, sure glad I did, cause it fit the flash unit nice and tight. The Diffuser it's self works amazing with the flash directly, seems to have a more natural effect then if used with out it, Since light travels in a straight line this diffuser makes the light bounce around a bit. It just seems to work out better then direct flash. Mostly used for bounce flash off the ceilings or wall. Plus there is a noticeable difference in the photos this diffuser was used in.. The results are amazing. I love this little piece of plastic.... Use it all the time and It's worth it.

Thank You.

I bought a couple of these in the opaque diffuser color. They also come in color balancing colors which can also be eliminated with a DIY solution.
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.
