Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 430EX & Sony HVL-F43AM

Product Highlights
  • Slide-On Design

The Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 430EX Speedlites and Sony HVL-F43AM will diffuse the light output of the flash, producing softer shadows and a softer, more natural glow rather than the harsher effect when using a direct flash. The diffuser provides even coverage across the entire frame.

The Bounce Dome simply slides onto and off the flash with custom fitting, without the need for touch fastener tabs.

      Eliminates unwanted shadows - it works great for the bridal party walking down the aisle during ceremonies and for the low light in receptions!

            A very simple, cheap, great piece of kit every shooter should use for news/editorial type photography to cover that naked flash head. Softens and diffuses the light, widens flash coverage, greatly improves flash photography on the run. An easy fit over your flash, although a bit of gaffer/duct tape never hurts to make sure it stays attached at all times.

              I bought this product to tone down the amount of flash from my Speedlite when taking portrait photos or close-up shots. The results are fabulous. It's really easy to attach and detach. It looks durable and expect it to last a long time.

              Perfectly designed to fit my Canon 430EX11. Easy on and easy off. Diffuser made a huge difference for early Christmas morning photos....the kids weren't blinded by the flash for once!

                          Took a thanksgiving group shot without it and had glare from woodwork. Took second shot with diffuser and no glare from the woodwork and the group was illuminated more evenly

                          Just getting started with use of my Canon Speedlite 430 ex II and this diffuser does a fantastic job of softening the harshness of a direct flash. Easily attaches and fits snugly.
