Product Highlights
  • For Canon 600EX-RT Flash

The Sto-fen OM-ET Omni-Bounce for Canon 600EX-RT creates a diffused bare bulb effect, giving even coverage across the entire frame, with lenses from 15mm to 200mm in the 35mm format (and equal in other formats as well). The Omni-Bounce is easy to use and goes onto and off the Canon 600EX-RT flash in seconds with custom fitting and no touch fastener.

Designed for years of service without the bulk of some other diffusers, it is small enough to fit easily into a gadget bag or pocket.

I picked this up with a Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite, since the default pullout bounce card and diffuser isn't amazing.

It does what its suppose to do.

The only issue I have with it, is that it's semi-difficult to get on and off the flash. Once you put it on, it will definitely not fall off without assistance.

Could be better

It does cut down on harsh light but far from perfect. Still useful though. It's not a bad purchase. Just don't expect phenomenal results.

      Comments about Sto-Fen OM-ET Omni-Bounce for Canon 600EX-RT:

      First of all let me say I don't consider this to be a adequate diffusers alone (why the 4 stars). I use it on my flash heads to help them fill umbrellas. It works great for that. I also like that it works on 580's and the 600's, where the old 580 ones are too tight to work on the 600's.

        I use the Sto-fen on my off camera flashes when it's windy outdoors and a soft box may blow over. It's fast to get out and on and diffuses the flash fairly well for such a small modifier. Now and then I use it on my flash on camera to soften bounce flash indoors when shooting brides getting ready and I am in a hurry.

            I had no difficulty in attaching the Omni-Bounce to my 600EX-RT. The fit was snug. It was a little more difficult to remove, but doable.
            Storing it in the 600's carrying case while attached to the flash was also possible.

              Comments about Sto-Fen OM-ET Omni-Bounce for Canon 600EX-RT:

              Understand its strengths and limitations. Don't confuse it with a soft box, bounce card or simple diffuser, which directs light toward your subject. This acts like a bare bulb, meaning it sends light in every direction, including in back of you if you have the flash aimed up. Unless there are walls/ceilings close enough to bounce the light back to your subject, you're wasting a lot of light. Great for lighting an entire room, however.
              One way I use it is to place the flash in back of a my subject and aim it at the ceiling. (I use a separate flash(es) to light the subject from the front). Because it scatters light 360 degrees, it lights both the background and adds a rim light on my subject to separate them from the background. Great for wedding groups in a church, for example.

                        I shoot a lot of events in all kind of spaces and most of the time I use the sto-fen over my flash. It diffuses the light beautifly making it less harsh on the subject ans helping with the dark backgrounds. Best results when used with the flash angled upward. Very useful tool.

                                    Works great as a quick, portable and light diffuser

                                    For group shots the light tends to stay brighter waste up if you are using a single flash with it camera mounted but it looks wonderful

                                      Put it over my 600ex-rt and it works like a charm. Have the same on my old 430exII.
