    This is a small piece of plastic that should not cost [$], but it does, and I bought it and kept it on my 270EXII basically most of the time. It adds little bulk to an already small flash. One added benefit is that I can slip inside a small piece of color correcting gel (e.g., CTO) without resorting to messy tapes.Don't expect wonderfully soft light from this diffuse. Even with the diffuser, the size of the light source is small. One would hope for bounced light from ceilings, etc., but the 270EXII does not put out much light to begin with.

        It's compact, has good features (master / slave mode), shoots straight and up, accepts light modifier and simply perfect as a travel attachment if you want more than just a basic pop up flash. Can be used as a hair fill, background and other neat addition to a more complex strobe light setup.

          This diffuser effectively accomplishes exactly what it's designed to do: soften the glare from the whitest whites. I've been using it with a nifty-fifty portrait lens and am completely satisfied. Would highly recommend.

            This diffuser fits the 270EX II perfectly and isn't prone to popping off. I leave it on the flash all the time. I use the 270EX II in bounce mode with the diffuser attached 99% of the time. The diffuser softens the shadows on headshots. I use the 270EX II with diffuser on my Canon 6D as a fill light most of the time. Wouldn't want to be without it!

                            Works very well with the Canon 270EX. Could be a little tighter on flash head, notice it popped off due to rubbing against my body or bag as I walk. Other then that the product works very well with Diffuser For Canon 270EX. ABNPix

                                I used the Canon 270ex on the Canon G12 at Disneyland's Smallworld ride. The first test was direct on-camera flash set on auto, I took a picture of my daugher and the image was harsh and the colors in the background was bareley visible due to the over powering flash. I took a second shot with the Omni Flash Diffuser on this time, also set on auto but with the flash tilted straight up to the ceiling. The image of my daughter was almost perfect with the subject lit "smoothly" with the little bit of light spilled from the side of the diffuser and the rest of the light lit up the interior of the ride which made the background colors more visible. I reccomend a diffuser and indirect flash for indoors at all times, yes it uses a little more juice from the battery but shouldn't be a big deal, just bring a spare set.

                                  When using the 270EX as a bounce flash with my G11, this diffuser is an absolute must for even light distribution. Get it now!

                                    This product stays on my flash almost all the time. The results are excellent and I have better control over the exposure. An external flash is a giant step forward for anyone and the diffuser makes it work even better.

                                      Used to sofen direct flash with a warm color cast. Used directly it works great but when used in the bounce mode it it great. I have nothing negative to say about this product It works as it should. I used this product on my Canon G-10
