    Gary Fong PUF-PLS reviews

    Puffer Plus Flash Diffuser for Standard Hot Shoes is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from What happened? This used to be a great product. I lost the mounting bracket so I ordered another one, figuring it would be the same. Oh no. The bracket is okay, but doesn't stay firmly in the hot shoe (need to watch that closely) and the diffuser, although much larger that the previous one - a good thing - is much more sheer, so it is less effective at diffuses the pop up flash. I am a wildlife photographer and rarely use flash. It nice to have a diffuser for those rare moments I need to use a quick light. But, really, what's the point of this diffuser if it's so sheer. What a disappointment. Bring back the old designplease!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice alternative First, I am a intermediate photographer who mostly shoots for pleasure.I purchased the Puffer Plus as a cheaper alternative to a flash. I was disturbed by the harshness of the built-in flash and needed something that would do a decent job at diffusing the light. I had the opportunity to use the diffuser a few times and so far I am thrilled with it. It is an easy to use, easy to install and evenly provides a softer lighting. I found it fits easily in my camera bag without taking up too much space when disassembled. I used it for a late night photo shoot with a friend and it provided exactly the lighting I was going for with the expectation that this is not a full lighting setup.I highly recommend it, especially for someone not looking to spend hundreds of dollars on a top quality flash, but needing to diffuse the built-in flash. The cost was extremely reasonable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with Canon Rebel T6i I really cannot rate this product adequately because we are not able to use it with our camera. Our camera flash won't pop up when the diffuser is added because its sensors believes we have added a removable flash unit. Our camera is a Rebel T6i. We are bummed! I hope to make it work by attaching the diffuser with rubber bands but haven't tried yet. I had hoped to tie us over until we can buy a removable flash unit with a diffuser and to have this as a backup for quick pics. That's definitely not easily possible. I wish Gary Fong would come up with a different way to attach this diffuser. That would be awesome!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally disappointed I bought the Canon mount puffer diffuser for my EOS Rebel. With the flash popped up, the camera recognizes something in the hotshoe and refuses to take a picture! I was hoping it could be used with the Panasonic Lumix Fx 200, but no luck there either. A perfect waste of my money. Also the hotshoe mount has a small piece of plastic that easily falls off and surely would easy to lose. I gave it a star since I had to fill in the field.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Work as advertised except....... It softens the pop up flash on my D750 as well as I'd expect it to but I had plenty of trouble getting it to fit on my hot shoe. The plastic is too thick to fit under the metal ground shelves comfortably. Some filing would be required. The puffer extension arm is also meant to be detachable from the provided plastic mount but even that is incredibly difficult to remove. The diffuser itself is mounted rather flimsliy. One knock and it'll come right off.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth the money The problem with this product is that the little plastic piece that slides into the hotshoe is too big. It won't slide into the hot shoe. I had to sand it down so it would fit. while it does the job, it seems somewhat shoddy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Downgrade from initial version Had one of the prior model and lost it during travel. Bought this as replacement. The adapter that fits in the hot shoe of my D90 didn't fit out of the box and required some gentle filing to make it fit. Also, although the larger diffuser shield should help improve the diffusion, it is thinner and less textured so not sure it actually improves the diffusion. Understand that it is not supposed to be a high-end diffuser, but not sure the new model is an improvement over the prior model.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have it and like it. Very good product. Diffuses the light properly. Little, if any loss of power from the pop up. Better then most, if not all the other diffuser A bit expensive. So four stars.
