Product Highlights

The Omni-Bounce OM-EV from Sto-Fen for the Canon 270EX and the 270EX II speedlights, creates a diffused bare bulb effect, providing even coverage across the entire picture. It is recommended for use with lenses from 15mm to 200mm in the 35mm format, but will work with other formats. The Omni-Bounce is easy to use and goes onto and off of your flash in seconds with custom fitting, except UNI, and No Velcro.

    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.

          I am not sure if this is just a problem with the piece that I received but it doesn't really fit/ snap securely and I am pretty sure if I don't keep my attention towards it, it will fall off and go missing.

            Soften shadows and remove the glare usually associated with on camera flash.Fair amount of vignette at the wide setting of the 270EX II as primary illumination, but still an overall improvement.Best used for fill lighting.

              Keep on flash head all the time, reduces the intensity of the exessive light on the final image, must be used bounced position.

                  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!

                              Does what it's supposed to. Why pay more for the Canon one?

                                      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

                                        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.

                                          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.
