I borrowed this diffuser from a friend with the same Speed light as I have. I like the ease of use and I am happy with the way it softened the light from my Canon 430 EX II. After giving it a try I made the purchase to add to my kit.

Because it is molded plastic that slips over the speed light I find it a little awkward to carry or put in my camera bag. It doesn't fit into the speed light pouch supplied by Canon but this is a minor inconvenience and it wasn't enough for me to look for another diffuser. Overall I'm very happy with the results.

just okay

works fine but doesn't stay on flash unit tightly enough and is always coming off in my bag, very annoying. when it's on the flash it gets the job done.

    Alright in diffusing flash

    By CJK

    from San Francisco

    Comments about Vello Bounce Dome Diffuser for Canon 430EX, 430EX II & III-RT Speedlite:

    Does a good job dufusing flash. However, when used with the 430 flashes the flash does not recognize it is attached. The canon diffuser is.

    I've always always just shot direct flash until a friend suggested I try his dome. That did it. I had to have one. I never leave home without it. Love the results.

    Comments about Vello Bounce Dome Diffuser for Canon 430EX, 430EX II & III-RT Speedlite:

    I didn't purchase from B&H but a local camera store. I have a mini soft box, but it is kinda saggy and takes a little time to put it on my flash. This gadget is quick and much more stable. with some test shots i did earlier it seemed to spread my flash more than the soft box did. Shadows seemed a tad softer as well. I'd like to have higher end soft boxes, but finances of course say no. You could probably find away to make a milk jug fit and it would be a larger diffuser, but it seems to work pretty good.

        Nice addition to have with the flash to take the harshness of a straight on flash. I use it 90% of the time, particularly with indoor shots. Works well with fill light out doors in shady conditions.

              I got this diffuser along with the canon 430 ex II speed light. I've used the combo for a wedding I shot last weekend, and the diffuser had a great fit, stayed on the speed light with no troubles and helped diffuse the flash which otherwise may have caused harsh shadows.
