    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.

        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.

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