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 used to drag around umbrellas for my flash units. Such a pain in the neck to drag around, setup, tear down, etc.

    Now with the help of my Pocket Wizards and a 2-3 light setup with my VERY cost effective Vivitar / Omni-Bounce setup, I can setup and tear down almost instantaneously. The improvement of my lighting is ten fold. Very little shadows, excellent ceiling bounce mixed with a proper amount of direct flash has been given me the depth and clarity that I have been trying to achieve for months.

    The Omni-Bounce setup literally takes about 2 seconds to snap onto my flash heads. What a great product for the price.

    I will recommend Omni-Bounce time after time again!

    The Omni-Bounce does create a nice bare-bulb look but reduces output. I find myself not using it as much as I thought because I'd rather bounce my flash off surfaces.

      Comments about Sto-Fen #OM-B Omni-Bounce:

      Simple device that turns most directional flashes into more of a bare-bulb-like strobe.

      The light is not as soft as a real bare-bulb flash and the catchlights are rectangular instead of round. There are a lot of other devices out there that cost a lot more. From my experience most don't perform significantly better to justify the price.

          By itself i would not recommend.
          But I used it with a mini softbox and a mini octobox for the Vivitar 285HV, and it improved it output incredibly. Very easy to setup

              Makes no difference whatsoever to my photos, that's all I can say. I was hoping it would diffuse the flash a little more for use bouncing off indoor walls and ceilings.

                I bought this to use on my Canon 420 EX flash. The bonus with this are two fold. 1-to use on my canon flash. 2-Also works on an older Vivatar 285 flash that I have had from my 35MM camera. Now I can use it for a fill flash or on my main one.

                        This diffuser is great for the ease of use. The only thing that I would like to see changed is that it doesn't lock into the 285 flash like it does on the 283. I would like something else to hold it firmly on the Vivitar 285.

                                  I keep this on my 285 and use as a back up for my SB-800.
                                  Same great results when bouncing off ceilings.
                                  ( of course no verticals )

                                    I use this on a Canon 420EZ and it works perfectly. It fits snug on the flash head and goes on and off the flash with ease. It diffuses the light beautifully.
