The Sto-fen 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 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 bought the OM-400 to try to improve my indoor flash photography. It's not that my pictures were bad, but using a flash straight ahead tends to overexpose the face even when using a spot meter on the face with Active-D lighting turned on on my Nikon D300. I much prefer the look of my photos when I have the option to bounce the flash off of the ceiling. The problem with bounce flash is that there has to be a relatively low ceiling (8ft) and the subject(s) have to be close (10ft) in order for the results to be good. When I go out, the ceilings tend to be taller that 8ft and subjects are sometimes further than 10 ft. away. I was hoping that the OM-400 would simulate a bounce flash for those occasions, but results are only mildly improved from what I get without it, plus it decreases flash power. On the plus side, it is small, light and easy to attach and remove from the flash.

              I lost the one i had.So i bought.It helps a bit in reducing the harsh direct light from the flash.

                  This is an especially well fitted and designed diffuser for the Nikon SB-400 Flash. It uugs the flash very well and still allows for the tilt-bounce feature for a softer. more even light fill.

                  I'm glad I found it.

                            Great little diffuser. Nicely softens the small Nikon SB400 strobe, takes up no space. A nice improvement over the older model for the SB400, as this one clicks more firmly into place and is less likely to fall off (which is why I needed a new one).

                                The SB-400 has been working great by itself. Curiosity led to the OM-400 purchase. I use the SB -400 for bounce flash. The effects on the bounce angles were subtle to me but direct it softened the flash nicely. Not a vital accessory for sure but considering price and stow-ability why not, its a hobby! I am going to always experiment with it now that I have it.

                                    Probably my fourth favorite way to diffuse light after: flip-up diffuser, gelling the bare flash bulb with a tough diffuse film, and ceiling bounce. It works best when you are outside (no ceiling) and your wife is complaining because you are making things too complicated fiddling with the size of a flip-up diffuser or the trouble of gaffing gels. Basically a simple, low-profile way to get some diffusion, but not quite enough for portraits to look natural and well-lit. Also basically ruins the possibility of ceiling bounces because it will still shoot a significant amount of light forward unless you scrim the front, so effectively is just to be used with the bulb pointed straight ahead, since that is what is going to effectively be happening.

                                      This small diffuser is easy to carry and use. It helps to soften (Hey, it's named Sto-fen, so that's a clue!)...the light from the strobe. I normally use my flash off camera for a bit of fill light, so this gadget helps to make the flash less obtrusive.

                                              I use this diffuser with my Nikon SB-400 speedlight to soften the flash output especially with macro or portrait photography. It is very easy to use - just slip it on and shoot away! The only improvement I might suggest would be some sort of small carry bag or small case in which to store it when not in use.

                                                I bought this when I got my Nikon SB-400. Didn't really know too much about it, but read a few reviews and figured for the cheap price I'd give it a shot. I like it. Fits on the SB-400 perfectly and I think it makes the shadows look better when you can't bounce the flash so you flash at the subject directly. For the price I think its worth it!

                                                          Great little diffuser and rarely remove it from my SB400. Stays on when it is suppose to with no rattles and comes off easily when you need the full flash or switching from bounce to direct. The light pattern has no hot/cold spots or strange artifacts. Thought the price was a bit high but has already outlasted 2 no-name diffusers without the annoyances so probably worth it.
