Sto-Fen OM-24XSET Omni-Bounce Set for Canon MT-24EX Twin Lite Flash

You Pay: $22.95

The Stofen OM-24XSET consists of two diffusers specifically designed for the Canon MT-24EX Twin Lite Flash.

The Omni-Bounce creates a diffused bare bulb effect, giving even coverage across the entire frame, with lenses from 15mm to 200mm in the 35mm format (and equal in other formats as well). The Omni-Bounce is easy to use and goes onto and off the flash in seconds with custom fitting (except for UNI model) and no touch fastener. Designed for years of service without the bulk of some other diffusers, it is small enough to fit easily into a gadget bag or pocket.

    I have used this diffuser set on an MT-24EX with the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens and a Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5X macro lens, both with good results. Compared to using the MT-24EX on its own, these diffusers provide a softer edge to shadows, as you would expect.

    I would have preferred even greater softening (even at the expense of light loss), but I understand how it is a tradeoff between the size of the diffusers and the amount of softening. I like that these diffusers are small enough to keep on the flash when the flash is stored in its pouch, which is handy.

    I also find that they have a very slight warming effect on the colour of the light from the flash. Normally, I find the "flash" white balance a little too blue for my taste. With these diffusers, that setting creates a natural light that I like, and I don't have to resort to manual white balance. I just leave them on my flash all the time.

    I own other omnibounce products for my 550 and 580 EX flashes and they work great but this flash is a different flash altogether and requires a different approach to the diffusion of light.

    It does soften the light so that it is not as harsh but the MT 24 EX flash heads are so small and powerful (relative to the subject size) that the light is still much too harsh for my liking. These sto-fen diffusers are just too small to make that much of a difference in the light quality.

    Instead of throwing these away and buying something else (which by the way there is no other option for this flash) I use them as a frame to which I was able to attach a Gary Fong Puffer for pop up flashes. This way I do not void the warranty on the expensive flash because it was not modified and the light is larger and softer than either the flash head alone or with the sto-fen omnibounce.

    I cut the front of the omnibounce out and attached the GF puffers to the side of the stofen with some hot glue. This then attaches to the flash head easily and increases the relative size of the flash by about 200% and results in more pleasing and softer wrap around light with fewer hotspots.

      Comments about Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce Set for Canon MT-24EX:

      This product is a great answer to creating softer light when using the Canon MT-24EX Twin Light Flash in macro photography.

      This product works as advertised and is small enough to leave on the flash heads while the flash is in its case.

          Comments about Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce Set for Canon MT-24EX:

          The two diffusers were almost necessary, due to the output of the heads. I found it hard to dial them down far enough, so I used a rubber band and a tissue to soften them even more. The product itself was very well made and a perfect fit.

                I'm only an enthusiast when it comes to macro, but I feel these are a must have for my MT-24's. Not a perfect solution, but definitely better than the naked flash heads.

                  If you're considering this product you want two things:
                  * softened illumination from your flash
                  * nice connection to your flash heads
                  This provides both. I recommend it.

                      The difusers for the macro flash bring so much of an improvement for your photos that it could come along with the flash in its box. Given the small distances in macro photography (specially if you are using the MPE-65 lens) the difuser surface is large enough to smooth out the shadows.

                              As a Director of Photography for NBC, volunteering to do crime scene photography for law enforcement and just the personal work I do, I often use my Canon MT-24EX. Even though there are several controls on the Canon MT-24EX that allow you to ajust the light intensity and angle there always seems to be a little "wash out" from an over exposed light.
                              Using the Omni Bounce opens up a hassel free world when using the Canon MT-24EX. The photos are fool proof. The lighting is perfect and even throughout, every shot without question. This takes any guess work out of the shot.
                              I leave the Omni Bounce on the Canon MT-24EX at ALL times. I just never remove it.
                              I cannot recommend this enough. It is the best investment you can make if you own or use a Canon MT-24EX.

                                  The difficulties effectively diffusing light from the Canon twinlight flash are well documented. I bought these having read elsewhere that they are a partial solution to the problem and their arrival confirms the opinions I researched before purchase.

                                  I like them because they are way more convenient than the jerry rigged diffusers I was attaching to my twin lights and provide about as much diffusion and, when used in conjunction with a second tier of diffusion (a home made piece of laminated Vellum parchment attached to the ring of the twin light and acting as a kind of "peaked cap") they work a treat.

                                        24EX flash and the diffuser (Stofen)

                                        And I took pictures using recommended dental setting, the detail is amazing; the teeth look just like what they look like in the mouth, which is exactly what we want.

                                          The MT24EX flash is almost unusable without some kind of diffusion. These diffusers help a lot but at higher magnifications when all or most of your light comes from the flash, it is not always enough. You can easily modify the diffuser to diffuse more (e.g. add paper or plastic to it with glue). This is much easier than making your own from scratch since these fit perfectly on the strange shape of the flash. Also, it removes any risk of damaging the flash itself if your DIY attempts go wrong. Consider buying 2 sets of these so you can have 2 levels of diffusion: 1 stock sto-fen and one with your own extra mods or one modified and one heavily modified.

                                            Purpose-built for the MT-24EX. It attaches reasonably securely and is very inexpensive. Better thay modifying something else to use as a diffuser. The design does not obscure the light lamps that allow you to see objects when the light levels are low and you're trying to focus.

                                              Easy to use both in manual and ETTL modes, mujst have for the MP-E 65, but also great with 50mm or 100mm macros. The cords dangle but can be strapped out of the way with some velcro straps. having ratio control and independent head angles can make some nice lighting in macro shots. I have a custom duel flash bracket I have used for a year with 2x 580ex II with mini soft boxes it works but you don't need that much power (and the setup weighs over 4 pounds) for most macro shots so I spent the money on the mt-24ex and am very pleased better results and so much lighter.

                                                        It is still early on for me with the MT-24EX flash, but I knew from other reviews that some sort of diffuser would be helpful. In some comparison photos I took, the images are consistently better with these on rather than off, so I think they will stay on.
