    A diffuser is an absolute must if you work with flash photography. Flash light can be very harsh and contrasty and will give your photos that ugly "tourist snapshot" look. Adding a diffuser softens the light considerably, giving your subjects a more pleasing look. Combine the diffuser with bouncing the flash off the wall and your pictures will come out even better.

    Was under the impression when I bought this item that it was the factory replacement for the diffuser that came with the 900. This item does fit and works fine but is a bit flimsy and doesn't secure to the flash as well as the factory diffuser.

      Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Nikon SB-900 & SB-910 Speedlights:

      I purchased this after breaking the original Dome which came with the SB-900 unit. It fits the unit perfectly, provides diffused light, and all at an excellent price point. Would recommend to anyone needing a replacement.

        This plastic is thicker than a Nikon dome, but still works well.

          Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Nikon SB-900 & SB-910 Speedlights:

          I use this all the time on my SB900. Over the years I loose or crack old ones, so my originals have been gone for quite some time. Glad I can still get a replacement.

                I bought this because I didn't realize the SB-910 came with one, works perfectly, serves as a back up.

                  I ordered this product, but was unaware one came with my used SB-900. I have not opened the product but it seems to be a good diffuser. I will keep it as an extra in the case I need it.

                    A diffuser is an absolute must if you work with flash photography. Flash light can be very harsh and contrasty and will give your photos that ugly "tourist snapshot" look. Adding a diffuser softens the light considerably, giving your subjects a more pleasing look. Combine the diffuser with bouncing the flash off the wall and your pictures will come out even better.

                      Doesn't fit quite as well as the one that comes WITH the actual flash, but it still gets the job done.
