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.

    This is a great accessory for the large Rogue Flashbender for your flash photography. The diffusion panel attaches easily to the flashbender via Velcro. The diffusion panel casts a nice soft light for the size.

        Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue Diffusion Panel (Large):

        For a mobile lighting solution using Speedlight flash units (Canon 600 and 430 RT), the Rogue assembly including this diffusion panel is an elegant substitute to a softbox, being more compact and much easier to set up. I have been setting up a small-scale mobile studio for situations where the heavier logistics of my Photogenic 320 / PocketWizard set-up with heavy-duty stands, softboxes etc.. is impractical. I have a soft box that can be fitted to the 600 RT, but it is bulky and not straightforward to set up. The Rogue set-up is a good 80% equivalent to the softbox but much more compact and therefore in line with the goals of the small scale studio.

          I love the Flashbender and for events where I photographe people I love the softness of the diffusion panel. Had to buy this because mine did get a little to close to a burning cigarette. A small hole with minimal impact. Hoever would not like to be without one. This is in my backup box for emergencies

              The panel is portable and because of the ease of
              use, it allows you to be creative with lighting
              effects in conjunction with the bender.

                        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

                            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 do a bit in my home studio and this is a great piece that softens and focuses the light. Very useful in Portrait and product shots.
                                    The only problem i have is, I need one more. ;)
