First off I can not stand the fact that this does not come with the sb600 flash, very annoying. My sb800 sure as heck came with one BUT whatever! Regardless, it is a great bounce dome and does exactly as I need it to do, diffuse light. Works great for events, parties, and my above all wedding receptions. I'm completely happy with it.

Mine came a little too tight. After some abrasion with a nail file, got better, but still isn't perfect, because it is a little round on the longer side. I seldom use it, so it's really no big deal. If you intend to use it a lot though, it may be worth spending some more and getting one with a better fit.

            It works great when you know WHEN to use it.

            Bounce flash is the key but it does throw light forward.

              Not much more I can say versus what's in the headline. Works great. Fits nice and snug - won't fall off if you pull at it lightly. Disperses light nicely.

                  some diffusers won't sit tight and simply fall off. This one fits the SB 600 nicely and does not fall off.

                      Diffuser fits flash just fine, but the amount of diffusion is less than expected. The light remains relatively concentrated.

                        I was looking for a simple diffuser for the Nikon SB-600 at a reasonable price. This unit mounts easily on the flash, stays put, and does the job of diffusing the flash very well. Simple design and great results. Exactly what I wanted out of it. Recommended.

                          The product is pretty simple to use and seems effective. In preliminary testing, qualitatively it made a "straight on" flash much softer and maybe about 2/3 of the way to the "softness" of a bounce flash off a ceiling. Should be great for those situations where it is not possible to do bounce and you don't have the reflector along.

                                  The Nikon SB-600 diffuser was a great addition to my picture taking. It softens the light to make pictures have a softer view which is great for portrait shots. Works great in small darker rooms to illuminate your subjects. Glad I added it to my arsenal of accessories.

                                    does what it says it does. Basically a plastic cover for you flash.

                                        I used a friends in numerous shoots, so I finally bought my own. It's a must in any serious photog's camera bag. Really helps in those harsh flash situations.

                                          Great product. Exactly what I needed for bare blub style shooting. Love gelling and sticking this over the gel as holder. Two uses in one!!

                                          Would recomend to anyone using SB600.

                                            I purchased this diffuser so I could take some fun pictures at a women's event at my church. There are high ceilings and low light. I couldn't bounce flash so I had to rely on my camera mount flash for adequate light. It's quick to pop on and off, stayed on securely, and nicely diffused the light. I am pleased with the results it gave me.
