      Comments about Vello Bounce Dome Diffuser for Canon 430EX & 430EX II Speedlite:

      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.

        The little device does a good job of softing the edges of shadows. I set my flash at 45 degrees to put the light forward of the camera

                I bought this diffuser for my Canon 430EX II. It works great and really helps spread the light out. For the price, you really can beat this product. It fits the flash perfectly.

                  Very simple to use and carry with me for nighttime events that require use of my external flash. Does a good job diffusing the flash so that your subjects don't get washed out.

                  Great alternative when you don't have ceilings to bounce light.....just be sure to hold the light above subject to reduce shadows in the background. this should be in every event photographers bag.

                        This diffuser spreads the light substantially and work particularly well with a small softbox. It also work pretty well bouncing light off of a wall or ceiling. It is basic but good for what it is. It doesn't fit very tight but will not come off unless something brushes against it.

                          This diffuser/bounce light fits perfectly on a canon 430EX II speed light. This item really softens your flash keeping you from harsh shadows and making it perfect for any occasion especially portraits and weddings.
