What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

Harbor Digital Design's DD-A18 Bounce Diffuser disperses the light output of your flash, producing softer shadows and a softer, more natural glow rather than the harsher effect obtained when using the flash directly. The diffuser provides even coverage across the entire frame.

The Bounce Diffuser simply slides onto and off your Nikon SB-600 Speedlight with a custom fitting, eliminating the need for touch fastener tabs.

    Nice product. I looked for a reasonably priced diffuser for my SB-600 - this one is a good deal.
    Fits the flash well, seems to be sturdy, and adds a nice spread to achieve softer light off a ceiling. Further reduces shadows besides the subject compared to straight bounce.
    I am mainly trying AUTO exposure mode, indoors, with subjects within 10-12 feet away.
    Would not want to bounce too far as I could see recycle times might get long. This much bounce & diffusion might make some scenes too soft or low contrast. I'll need to do testing to know when it's best to add this to the flash. Also seems to have an area inside the top of the collar blocked where the SB-600 built-in diffuser stores - need to install with that matched on the DD-A18 or you might loose some light output.

    The best part about the product is you get reasonable quality diffusion in a very portable package. Some stars must drop, however. I did not find the quality matching the price. And, it is not as reliable fit to my SB-600 as some other reviewers imply. It will bump or slip off with active use.

      I am using this on my Nikon flash. Fits great and does not fall off. The diffusion is excellent and is exactly what I was looking for. Small enough to easily fit in any camera bag. There are other similar products out there but couple this with B&H free shipping for an outstanding deal.

                  This diffuser fit nicely onto my SB-600 flash and doesn't slide off. I probably will keep it on my flash most of the time since it gives a nice softening to the my photos that require a flash.

                      I got this to help with my photography since my flash was creating shadows with the types of pictures i was taking, and now I'm not having any of those problems. This diffuser is easy to put on and take off for traveling as well as it doesn't limit the motion of the flash unit itself. one of the better things is that the arc that the diffuser has helps to radiate the light in all directions not just to one focal point.

                            It fit my flash perfectly, it diffuses light from the flash, leading to much softer light falling on you subject. Very inexpensive, if you don't have one you should.

                              The diffuser significantly softens the light sourced from your flash gun. The improvement is almost same improvement as the step up from pop up to Flashlight. The value for money is extra-ordinary.

                              Only used last night - Test shot photo of me facing a mirror. The 3inch display clearly shows much softer light with diffuser on.

                              The diffused light is great and more spread out than a regular diffuser but it falls off so very easily. I am going to have to tape it on somehow for the next event I photograph as it was literally falling off every other 5 minutes the first time I used it. Not good when you are at a busy event with tons of people standing around and having to scramble on the floor to look for not one—but two–pieces of the diffuser.
