Sto-Fen OM-MZ3 overview

  • 1Description

Enhance the quality of light coming from your on-camera flash with the OM-MZ3 Omni-Bounce Diffuser from Sto-Fen. Designed for select flashes, this diffuser slides onto the flash head and will diffuse the light output, producing softer shadows and a more natural glow rather than the harsher effect created when using a direct flash. The diffuser also helps to provide even coverage across the entire frame which is especially useful for wide-angle shooting

Sto-Fen OM-MZ3 reviews

OM-MZ3 Omni-Bounce Diffuser is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce for Vivitar 383 Having used a Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce on another flash that I own, I decided to order this one for a Vivitar 383 flash unit I purchased to use with my Olympus E-520 DSLR. Simply put, the OM-MZ3 does what it is suppose to do. It slides easily onto the head of the Vivitar 383 flash unit and provides the flash softening as it should. How Sto-Fen products work as compared to other flash diffusers is beyond my experience. So, my 5 star rating is based upon the fact that the product is as described and worked with the flash unit that the compatibility chart indicated it would. The OM-MZ3 unit also works with other flash units as per information that is available from Sto-Fen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and it works! I use the Omni bounce for personal use with family and friends. I find it softens the light allowing me to get clear and properly exposed photos. It snapped on my Vivitar DF 383 with not problems and stayed on until I took it off. It is small enough to carry in my camera bag or on my person for quick pictures around my neighborhood. What I did not like was that it was still bright to my subjects eyes and I have to be careful to angle the flash up in order not to near hear high bright it was. Highly recommend it and it was inexpensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential gear for on-camera flash Inexpensive, simple to use, and small enough to take anywhere, the Omni Bounce is an essential addition to any camera bag containing a flash gun. Custom fit for many common flashes, the Omni Bounce installs and removes easily without any modification to the flash unit, though its compact size is such that in most cases you may never need to remove it at all. It pleasantly softens flash through a combination of soft-box-like diffusion and bounce light, and its elegantly simple design works seamlessly with all types of autoflash (including TTL) with only a modest reduction of flash guide number. For digital photographers, there is also the highly useful green (intended to balance fluorescent lighting) and gold (intended to balance incandescent lights) Omni-Bounces. When used in conjunction with an appropriate setting to the camera's color balance, permits fill flash and ambient light to more nearly balance for neutral color rendition from foreground to background.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't use my flash without it I don't usually rate any product this high but I can't think of one bad thing to say. It fits my Sigma flash unit perfect and my flash photos look great. For the price ($) it is the best thing you can do to improve you flash pictures. I leave it on the flash all the time and only take it off if I need long distance over 35 or 40 ft. I have had the OMNI- BOUNCE for 2 years now and wish there was a gold one for my flash

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Assistant The product is really simple to use striaght out of the package, just slides on over the flash and BAM you're ready to shoot. Word of the wise though, practice with it first just to get used to it and adjust your camera accordingly. It's definently worth having in your camera bag, and it's a cheap accessory so why not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OM-MZ3 Omni-Bounce by Sto-Fen I just bought this flash diffuser and fits perfectly my Metz flash. I really like how it diffuses the light and gives less harsh shadows. So far I didn't find any downside besides of course the fact that it will lower a little bit the power of the flash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic softener Does as it says. Softens and spreads the light from my speedlites. I use this in conjunction with a Lastolite softbox. Together they produce a nice light from my SB-28s. The Sto-Fens are well known. They are simple to use and money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must have addition I used this the day it came and had better results than just using the flash unit alone even in bounce mode. I highly recommend this product combined with purchasing the flash unit.
