    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 light weight diffuser fits my Canon 430EX II perfectly. I generates a nice clear soft light. I'm don't really use the Speedlite that much so I'm not sure what I should have expected. I am looking forward to getting more experience with this diffuser in the future.
