    A diffuser for my flash is like a lens hood. I may not always use it, but I want it to be available when I think that it might help. This one works without having to cobble up my new flash with some cruddy velcro straps, glue or titanium rivets. Don't leave home without it. And if you do leave it behind, turn around and go back to get it. But no 180's on 5 lane freeways. Use an exit.

          A good way to reduce the harsh flash light. Fits reasonably well. Works both indoors and outdoors. You will still see a shadow if you are in a small room or in a confined area.

                      The dome does what it says it will do. It fits my 270EX II and softens the output. I don't use this as my primary light, but as needed to fill. Both it and the Speedlight are small, light (no pun intended), and fit well into my bag.

                        Great little low profile diffuser for the 270. A must have given the closeness required for low output flashes.

                          I purchased the canon 270EX II flash and saw Bounce Dome by Vello as an additional add on, for the price I figured okay lets get it. Works as described. Was a amazed at how easy it was to put on and take off no harsh edges, no clipping where you can break a nail or damage the flash. Yes I recommend it for the price.

                              I use it for closeup pictures to soften the light. It works nicely and adds a nice softness to my photographs.

                                Easy to install diffuser and works great. Due to the small, not very powerful 270 flash, it has it's limitations though, but works as expected. Have to upgrade to 430 flash with Vello diffuser to get more distance.

                                I bought this speedlite with a 50mm 1.8f lens and a flash diffuser. The speedlite is good addition to my arsenal, but frankly speaking i shoot mostly indoors and at night and for that the 1.8f has done wonders for me. The total cost of these three things was 300$. I did notice that the 50mm 1.4f is for 350$ and given the huge difference i see in shooting capabilities of 1.8f given the wide aperture; i'm sure 1.4f would have been a better buy for the price difference. You would not neeed an accessory flash unless you are a pro and do a lot of indoor / potrait wedding kind of photos. For someone like me who shoots mostly family events and sometime photos and do not make a living out of photography; I believe a 1.4f would have sufficed given the minimal cost difference.

                                  I use this with my Speedlight t reduce glare and provide a more natural look to my photos. It works wonderfully and fits easily and securely on my unit.
