Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 580EX Flash

You Pay: $10.50
Product Highlights
  • For Canon 580EX

The Vello Bounce Dome for Canon 580EX Flash 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, and is ideal for use with lenses from 15mm to 200mm in 35mm format (and equal in other formats as well).

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

    After reading a few photography books, all of which recommended a diffuser for my 580 EX II Canon flash, I finally bought this diffuser. I was initially worried about how something so cheap would work. Once I got it though, tried it out (shot a few pics without and with the diffuser), I am completely sold! This diffuser works like a charm, and really softens the flash and reduces sharp shadows. Makes the 580EXII too long to fit in its original small pouch when left on the flash, though.

    The Flash diffuser does what it claims, it works well and softens the harshness of fairly close pictures of people. For the price it is a good value.
    However, it falls off the flash A LOT. People are regularly telling me it fell off and pick it up. I've tried squeezing it so that it has a tighter fit. That helps for a few minutes until the plastic resumes it's original shape.

    I only gave 3 stars based on it falling off. I would try another brand. I might try adding a rubber band or something. For the cost though I'll probably try a different brand.

                    Great for toning down the flash from looking like a regular point and shoot photo. Adds a certain sparkle into the eye which is great.

                              It's what you'd expect- it's very simple and durable plastic, and it does a decent job of diffusing when you don't have a good surface for a bounce.

                                  I used this in conjunction with an octabox to further soften the light. I haven't noticed any tints yet. However, I haven't really tested them properly yet. In the end, it's diffusor, and it does a great job of diffusing the light source. I like it cause the price is redonkulous compared to what they charge me for similar products here in Norway

                                    There's not much to describe about the product....a translucent piece of plastic that fits snugly on the end of your flash. It mutes the flash for a less harsh flash and shadow. When using in bounce mode and for optimal lighting, recommend slight increase to flash output....especially when bouncing....will keep your exposures appropriate while still yielding softer light than use without. Can't beat it for the price!

                                        After doing significant research I found that the "Bounce Dome by Vello" is just as good as any of the others, but for less money.

                                          Simply don't buy your flash without it. There are other domes that are bulky and more expensive, but this one is by far the most useful.

                                            Using the difusser on the Speedlite 580EX II. Slips over the flash without difficulty - snug fit. Excellent photo results.

                                                  I had a little bit of concern at first due to the comments about fit. I have a 580ex II flash and there is absolutely no problems with the fit on mine. it does require two hands to install/remove but it fits good. no need to remold/stick in hot water etc.
                                                  I'm not a professional photographer so compared to the real canon deal I'm not sure what would be the big difference. I took a few test shots and like what I see. For the price, you can't go wrong. thanks.
