    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.

    Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 270EX/270EX II Speedlight:

    This product does what it claims...diffuses the light and fills the shadows. The only problem encountered so far--it does not stay on the flash head very well. I purchased similar diffusers at the same time for my Canon 600EX-RT...they stay on the flash perfectly. This unit has a problem because the width of the diffuser does not adequately cover the indents on the flash head. Returning this unit would not solve the problem. It is the design of the unit. Had the company made the fitting just a smidgen wider, there would be no problem. Get out the duct tape...you will need it...otherwise, it will shoot off the 270 flash head.

      Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 270EX/270EX II Speedlight:

      This cap is placed upon our Speedlight 270EXII which sits on our Canon T5i. The diffuser cap makes a difference. It softens human faces and works well with taking photos of animals and not getting "flash eyes". HIGHLEY RECOMMENDED FOR ANY TYPE OF FLASH ON ANY CAMERA!

            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.

                              It ermains on the flash. Not that easy to drop since the fit is very well. Good product.

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