    have only used rogue with diffuser since we want the softest light possible, and the diffuser does make a difference, but at a high price for a badly designed item. diffuser attaches nicely with velcro along sides, but top of diffuser (into which the strobe fires) is a horribly ill-conceived design that allows light leakage and poor reflection. as with the rogue, too much over-engineering with snaps worthy of hiking boots for no obvious benefit. the diffuser does soften the light, but at a high price and not efficiently.

      Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue Diffusion Panel (Large):

      In my opinion, this is a necessary add-on for the flash bender. It really works to soften the light from the speedlight and keep it contained within the flash bender's size. It attaches easily to the flash bender as well. The only drawback I can find is that is partially covers the controls on the speedlight making them difficult to access. That goes for the attachment device on the flash bender as well.

        Just so you know you need flashbender to use the diffuser panel, if you don't have the flash bender buy the kit that comes with the flash bender & the diffusion panel.

        I love the quality of light the diffusion panel gives. it folds up nice into my camera bag and I can bring anywhere. Great for times when a large softbox isn't practical. It's lightweight, and very well made. I haven't found anything I don't like about it. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a nice soft quality of light.

          I have been using my Flashbender 2x a week for over 1 year. The difusion panel makes it even better it does give the images an even nicer look.
          Absolute must have if you can't take the flash off camera

          A Little Different from the Older Model

                I bought one of these a few months ago and liked it. So, I purchased this one for use on a second flash unit. It is identical in size and function to the one I bought earlier, but is sewn somewhat differently, with a slightly different pattern of Velcro strips. Seems functionally identical, however.

                  This was purchased accidently but I actually use it all the time. It is a great addition to the Rouge Flash bender and casts a nice soft light.

                      I really love my Rogue Flash Bender and then adding the Diffusion Panel only makes it more versatile. It softens the light beautifully. It is super easy to carry, easy to install, stays put and adds a really nice dimension to my photos.

                            I have to stop watching all these seductive youtube videos that make products look great. First of all the photographers that demonstrate these items are working with professional models that have makeup artists working with them so they look great no matter what.
                            If you cant use an umbrella or real soft box the flashbender might be ok...I bought the Diffusion Panel and didnt see much difference in the quality of the light. The panel should have been included with the flashbender which was pricey. The product is well made and in all fairness I should give it more of a chance.

                                        Just did some tests with the Rogue Diffusion Panel and I love it. Small, easy to pack but allows me to control the light. I use it off camera with my Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT. ----------------------. Now that I am familiar with it I will photograph a bride so I can show the difference to prospective brides. By improving the photography I improve the sales process.

                                          Works great on the flashbender, providing even softer light than the flashbender alone.

                                            With Flashbender Large, it really does the job. Nice & easy portable softbox. Fastening with Flashbender is little harder & tricky by using fabric hook & loop (Velcro). Gives what a softbox supposed to. Easy storing, but need to dismantle from Flashbender.

                                              If you have the Rogue large Flashbender, then this is a must-have for it to diffuse & soften the light. It's easy to install, use and is very portable. Great product from ExpoImaging.

                                                Great way to diffuse light with the rogue flash bender. Fits in my bag and is portable. I use it for fill light, rim light, and key light and it works awesome.

                                                  Makes an awesome portable soft box. Has internal reflectors at the top of the diffusion panel to redirect light back towards your subject. Feels durable and is very light weight.

                                                  Would recommend for anyone doing portraits that need portability or looking for small soft box that is easy to use and packs flat.

                                                    I use this product with a canon 580EX II strobe and soft and nice light for portraits and still objects photography is obtained with this panel. You will need to have a large flash bender reflector already to attach this panel.
