Harbor Digital Design Bounce Diffuser for Canon 580EX II, Vivitar 283, Sony HVL-F58AM, Yongnuo 560, 560II, 565

You Pay: $19.95

The Harbor Digital Design Bounce Diffuser is a half-dome shaped flash diffuser that securely slips over the front of the flash with use of the included model-specific flash adapter. The half dome design allows for a larger diffusion surface and spreads the light evenly and over a larger area, producing the effect of a much larger diffuser and light source.

      I haven't had a need for an external flash until recently. In the past for emergencies I used my onboard flash, so have experimented with many home-made diffusers including plastic bottles, coffee filters, rolling papers, etc..
      I've recently purchased a Sony HVL-58AM flash and immediately needed a diffuser for shooting indoor bull-riding and barrel racing.
      This unit does everything a diffuser is supposed to do and does it very well. I've tested it at high and low flash power levels and it simply gets the job done.

      It's not really doing much. The diffusion effect is barely visible. I suggest to go with a different design. On the positive side, it snaps really well to the Speedlite.

          didn't have the chance to try it at store because i didn't think to bring my camera with me and i regret not asking to try a demo.
          overall it is almost everything i expected it to be, just a bit dissapointed on the relatively small amount of the diffusion i wasn't aware of.

            when no ceiling or wall is available to bounce the light off of. In several cases I've been taking pictures at parties or other events. There has been no wall or ceiling I could use to bounce the light off of. Using direct light was too harsh. This proves a good substitute.

              This diffuser fit nice and snug on the canon 580EX II. I really like the way the light has a gental wrap around effect. Light loss is only about 1/2 stop. Work very well in the bounce position of the head.

                I use this diffuser on my Canon 580 EX II when I shoot guests/models at events. It is doing the job just fine. I like the brand and the fact that you can remove the white part and change it with other items they sell, like bigger soft boxes. The only disappointment is that this diffuser is not big enough to make a big difference compared to the diffuser mounted on the flash.

                    Opening is too big for my flash. Fixed it with some velcro.

                      I haven't had the chance to try it out much. It went on the 580EX II easily and appears like it will stay fixed.

                        The product delivers as described. The fit is perfect, not too snug or loose. I was concerned that the plastic casing would leave scratch marks on my new flash but it doesn't. It's great for my uses, I shoot mainly portraits, landscape and sports.

                                These are very different than the typical flash diffuser. We tried it out to see how it performs compared to our "square white" ones. It performed well and produced wonderful light that was even and genuine.

                                  Works just as it is supposed to. It is easy to put on the flash. Fits snug, but it's not so snug that it won't come off.

                                      Used Bounce Diffuser on Canon 580EX II with Canon Eos 5D Mark II for the private children birthday party. It sits securely on the flash, fits perfectly, is easy to use, and gives wonderful, soft and "enveloping" light. Very pleased with the product.

                                        Great Diffuser I have had a bunch. I use it with my canon 14MM II. Great for grip n Grins.

                                          I use this with my Canon 580exII and Canon 20D camera, for taking pictures at the DJ events I do, I like It because it lets more light out than some of the other brands of diffusers.

                                            Great addition for shooting with a speedlite. Gives that nice soft, bounced effect of a studio light with an on or off camera flash. For shooting people at events or anytime you want to avoid harsh light or shadows.

                                                Comments about Harbor Digital Design Bounce Diffuser for Canon 580EX II, Vivitar 283, Sony HVL-F58AM, Yongnuo 560, 560II, 565:

                                                I haven't had a need for an external flash until recently. In the past for emergencies I used my onboard flash, so have experimented with many home-made diffusers including plastic bottles, coffee filters, rolling papers, etc..
                                                I've recently purchased a Sony HVL-58AM flash and immediately needed a diffuser for shooting indoor bull-riding and barrel racing.
                                                This unit does everything a diffuser is supposed to do and does it very well. I've tested it at high and low flash power levels and it simply gets the job done.
