Questions? Ask our experts:

Enhance the quality of light coming from your on-camera flash with the OM-HV58 Omni-Bounce Diffuser from Sto-Fen. Designed for select flashes, this diffuser slides onto the flash head and will diffuse the light output, producing softer shadows and a more natural glow rather than the harsher effect created when using a direct flash. The diffuser also helps to provide even coverage across the entire frame which is especially useful for wide-angle shooting

This diffuser is a very simple accessory to help your flash photography. Softens the light as intended to help smooth out and balance your light. Even when bouncing your light, you get a nice catch-light in the eyes from the diffuser, while it sends a nice soft light towards the wall or ceiling. One of the simplest, most portable additions you can add to your bag.

        The (excellent) LumoPro LP180 Quad-Sync Manual Flash doesn't come with a basic diffusion dome.. this one fits it. BANG! Now you've got what you need (but only when you need it, okay? Please don't let me see you with this on your flash pointed up at a 50' ceiling or outdoors.. you're just wasting photons when you do that. Seriously.)

          Comments about Sto-Fen OM-HV58 Omni-Bounce Diffuser:

          This is a very simple product to use, just slip it in your flash and you're ready to shoot. the Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce is a cheap add on but not cheap in construction. It diffuses and soften the light which eliminates the harsh shadows when you use just the flash.

                It doesn't get much simpler than these. Fits almost perfectly on a LumoPro LP180, offers great diffusion, and costs almost nothing.

                    Im new to the flash end of photography and I can instantly tell the difference in the more natural glow that it puts off. Its a perfect fit on my flash.

                      Switching to omni from umbrellas that catch the wind and blow my light stand over. Careful positioning at 60 degrees can produce "soft " light by using the edge of the light. Might be a easy tradeoff on windy days. Gels fit easily in plastic cap to balance ambient light or add color to hairlights.

                        I've owned several Sto-Fen Omni-Bounces for multiple brands of lights. They always deliver.

                        I don't think they distribute the light as evenly as my Gary Phong Lightsphere. But it does win hands down in portability, weight, and size.

                        Regardless, it is always a HUGE improvement over the bare flash or built in reflector.

                                This is a great product. I use it in place of the bounce card that is built into the flash unit because one of these days that piece is gonna break. I think it works just as well as a Gary Fong light modifier and is easier to pack.

                                      not much to say but everybody who is using a flash should have this in top.

                                        This diffuser is a very simple accessory to help your flash photography. Softens the light as intended to help smooth out and balance your light. Even when bouncing your light, you get a nice catch-light in the eyes from the diffuser, while it sends a nice soft light towards the wall or ceiling. One of the simplest, most portable additions you can add to your bag.

                                          Does exactly what it is supposed to do. A little compressed on long side so can be difficult to wiggle onto the flash head, but that may be just this one. At least it isn't loose.

                                            The Omni-Bounce works wonders. Very simple fix to a common lighting problem that I had. This device is easy to install and deinstall for use when I need it. Great product and good fit for the device.

                                              I have heard for so long how great the Omni-Bounce is. I finally ordered one for my Sony a850. It is wonderful and it fits perfectly. Nice and snug but it goes on very quickly and easily. It provides just the right amount of diffusion to avoid harsh shadows. It stays in my camera bag all the time. Just so darned handy!
