SBM #0103 Supreme Flash Diffuser for Select Canon, Contax, Metz, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, Sunpak, Vivitar & Achiever Flashes

B&H # SB0103 Mfr # 103
No Longer Available

The SBM Supreme Light Diffuser will diffuse the light output of the flash, producing softer shadows and a softer, more natural glow, rather than the harsher effect of a direct flash. The diffuser provides even coverage across the entire frame, and is ideal for use with lenses from 15mm to 200mm in 35mm format (and the same in other formats as well).

The Supreme Light Diffuser simply slides on and off the flash with a custom fit, without the need for touch fastener tabs.

I use the for a lot small concert shooting and other event related shooting. I definitely prefer this over a bigger lumiquest or fongsphere product for the size and at 28mm spread, the light becomes fairly even for subjects about ten feet away. However, there is a slight green cast in the diffuser but thats nothing any digital camera can't fix these days. Overall worth it.

Fits on my Sigma EF-500 DG ST but only just barely. Takes a while to pretty much force it on and it snaps off easily with the slightest touch. Softens pictures nicely but not a whole lot more than the built-in slide-out diffuser.

Comments about SBM #0103 Supreme Flash Diffuser:

I love the fit of this diffuser on my Canon 380EX. Not having the original diffuser for this flash (as it is an older model), I purchased this and it provides a nice snug fit for my flash right out of the box, no tape, clips etc. Diffuses the light beautifilly and my aftermarket gels fit perfectly into the diffuser without the need for gaffers tape to hold them in. I would recommend this diffuser to anyone in the market.

      Very easy to slip on and off my speedlite!
      Very noticeable difference in lighting
      Sometimes slips off if it bumps against something.

      Lost my expensive Omnibounce, got this for a metz 54 and it is indistinguishable from the Omnibounce. Love the convenience of these things, even light and not bulky.

        It does the job fitting right on top of my Olympus flash. It's a little loose but doesn't go anywhere.

        Comments about SBM #0103 Supreme Flash Diffuser:

        I bought this to use on my Sigma EF 500 DG Super flash to shoot a wedding. It provded softening of the flash effect when shooting. I had never used a diffuser before but was happy with its performance. It is a tight fit to slip over the flash head requiring some effort to attach it. However, once attached, it stayed on during handling of the flash and camera

          the unit looks like a used one, poorly made. And the result of the diffuser is just okay
