              Comments about Nikon SW-13H Wide Angle Flash Adapter for SB-900 Flash:

              I have ordered 3 replacements of these diffuser domes for my SB 900's - 1 got lost, 1 got broken, and 1 extra is now in my bag just in case. These Nikon diffusers work great for close diffused lighting and also when I secure 3 SB 900's to a Lasolite triFlash mount along with PocketWizard Flex tt5's for portrait work. Good way to soften light without having to carry along umbrellas or a mini soft box. A trick I have learned is to mount the diffuser up side down on the flash head. This can give you a little more punch as the flash head will still zoom instead of defaulting to wide angle. Although these diffusers work great, they are brittle and can shatter if you drop them on pavement.

                  This really works great with a 45 degree bounce flash indoors/ Nice spread of light - soft but still strong enough to give good exposure.

                    As a professional wedding photographer, simplicity and portability are dire. These diffusers allow me to control my light in any situation. They do just enough. I have Gary Fong's and other more expensive accessories. But I always find myself keeping it simple and consistent with these.

                      This easy to use flash diffuser for the Nikon SB-900 flash unit works very nicely to eliminate the glare and harsh reflections you sometimes encounter.

                      This was a replacement for the one that originally came with the SB-900. The original one sacrificed itself for the flash when it was accidentally dropped.

                      Lost the diffusion dome that comes with the SB-900 and bought the Nikon replacement. To have a correctly shaped diffusion dome for the SB-900 is particularly important because Nikon designs the dome to be used in conjunction with it's gel holders, and pop-out diffusion panel.

                      Good replacement, and hope I don't lose it again!

                      Diffusers are not really to soften the light, they are to SPREAD it. Filling a room with flash is more easily done with this attachment, but I usually use it as another layer of diffusion behind an umbrella or inside a soft box.

                      Use it all the time for bounce, general softening of light, etc. It's a bit unwieldy compared to its predecessor (the dome for the SB-800). The only problem i've had with it (aside from losing it) is that the tabs on the side of the dome are not very sturdy -- i've already broken them in the rush of shooting. They also don't always side right in to the SB-900's slots. Otther than that complatin, it's a fine product.

                                I bought this to replace the diffuser that originally came with the Nikon SB-900. It is the same.

                                I strongly considered a third-party version from Harbor Digital. I used a diffuser from them for years on an SB-800.

                                The SB-900 and included diffuser seems overly-complex and is, for me at least, easy to mount upside down which disables certain automatic adjustments. I find it easiest to take a quick look at the Nikon logo on its front to check the orientation.

                                Anyway, this is the right piece to replace the original SB-900 diffuser box.

                                  A great accessory for those "softer" photos with portraits and casual parties.

                                      Does a good job of softening the light, especially for portraits. Especially useful for photos of kids who seem to have lighter skin and reflect light.
