Pros

  • Easy to Use
  • Great Soft Light
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Not Folding

Best Uses

  • Interiorism

Comments about Impact Strobros Globe Diffuser for Shoe Mount Flash:

It is a great diffuser for portable DLS flashes. I use it for Interior photos (interior design), it can give me a very soft and diffuse ligth with no notorious direction because of its globe form. Yo can´t fold it so that is the only inconveniente but it is between small and médium, still portable.

      Comments about Impact Strobros Globe Diffuser for Shoe Mount Flash:

      very unique and nice build light modifier for speedlight. I only see 2 or 3 company make it.
      The other one made by interfit need adapter to mount their globe to speedlight. I like this one by impact. I do not need other adapter, just use Velcro strip to mount it directly on your speedlight.

      The outcome is much more soft compare to bare head. and you can use it bounce to ceiling or point directly to subject. either way is much better than use bare head.

      I also like use it on boom stand. point it down. It give an effect that the photo is shoot by a lamp on the ceiling.

      Comments about Impact Strobros Globe Diffuser for Shoe Mount Flash:

      Used for event photography with TTL . Softens the flash but you lose about two stops. Also definitely not discrete- will get a lot of looks.
      Better value than other more expensive and comparable models.

      Seems sturdy but hasn't been tested / dropped.

        Comments about Impact Strobros Globe Diffuser for Shoe Mount Flash:

        There's a shiny plastic finish on this diffuser--that's the only real difference I can see in this and the Fong version. I went with this cheaper version and I'm glad I did. Can't tell a difference in pictures. Great diffuser!

            Comments about Impact Strobros Globe Diffuser for Shoe Mount Flash:

            Much smoother and less harsh light than the OEM SB800 diffuser offers, shadows much nicer, too. Plus much wider coverage. I've been looking for something like this for a while, am very satisfied with it. Mini-Chimera lantern, as it were. Mounting system is decent, but for lots of run and gun I'd use a bit of gaffer's tape to help it out. No color shift to speak of, either.

              Easy to attach to my Nikon Sb700 & 910 speedlites. Great coverage in medium size rooms. I'm shooting a few pictures of my friend's band in a cramped recording studio this weekend and I know that this will come in very handy.
