    This is a pretty simply little diffuser--nothing to write home about, per se. The ingenious thing about it is the way that you mount it on your flash. It has a stretchy waistband-like collar that you pull over the top of your flash. I found that as long as I had access to both hands (like when my camera was hanging from my neck) I could pull the thing on and off with impunity.

    One other nice touch is that the other side of the diffuser--the one you can't see in the main product shot--is black and blocks light. So if you want a little less light coming out the front, you can angle your flash up and rotate the diffuser 180 degrees. I was very pleased with the shots I recently took with it on a darkened dance floor.

    I really like the way the diffuser works once it's on the flash, but it is not easy to get it on. The band is a little tight. Works great once it's on, though. Probably wouldn't have bought it if the flash listed that it actually comes with a diffuser.

    I didn't next a large box so I opted for this. Small and tight fitting, it holds its shape and is very easy to store away.

        It definitely softens the harshness of the flash, and allows for greater ambient light (especially in smaller rooms with light walls/ceiling).

        It isn't the biggest on the market, but you can't go wrong for the price.

              Comments about Vello Universal Bounce Diffuser:

              This diffuser works great especially when bounce flash isn't practical. One interior side is silver metallicised for reflecting light forward, much like the white card built into many flashes. It works great for softening the light just like a bounce in instances where there is nothing to bounce the flash off of, such as outdoors or when indoor surfaces could impart unwanted color.

                  This is the answer to those home-made bouncer/diffuser kits with the rubber bands. Good quality, a little tight (but not too bad), and excellent results. It's like your old white cardboard diffuser only more portable and better constructed. For the price, I would recommend.

                        Use this on an Olympus FL-600R and Canon 270 EXII. Best diffuser set up I've used for macro. Portable, light and stays on. It would probably be a pretty tight fit for the bigger flash heads like the Canon 600.

                        Have never used it for anything but macro so will make no claims on capabilities for portraiture.

                        Price is great too.

                          I really like thus diffuser, I was not existing one side to have a black backing and was a tad bummed when i first opened it but then realized the silver reflector on the inside. It works like a charm!

                            this fits the 2 flashes that I have. It is great for the second flash that is further from the camera. I gave it a 3 because I wouldn't use it next to someone for a portrait.

                              I bought this with the Olympus FL-600R. It works as a decent diffuser; however, it seems to only work well for subject that are relatively close. This could be use error on my part, but it seems a little limiting with respect to overall light output.
