Sto-Fen OM-400 overview

  • 1Description

Enhance the quality of light coming from your on-camera flash with the OM-400 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-400 reviews

OM-400 Omni-Bounce Diffuser is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as I hoped This Sto-fen product is the first Sto-fen I have used that did not deliver as promised. I also have the ones for Minolta/Sony flashes and they work like a charm. This one however does not do a great job at softening the light. It still produces harsh flash but I think it is due to the small size of the SB400. You need to be a bit off the subject (around eight feet or so) to start to see any softening of the light. Having said that it still has benefits once used within its limitations and that is why even with a three star rating I will still recommend the item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over-priced, but what are your options? As far as fitting the Nikon SB-400 and doing what it's supposed to do, it's perfect. But it's a stupid piece of machine blown, fitted plastic that probably costs pennies to produce. So, why do I have to pay about $20 for it?! Because, what else are you going to buy to get the job done? They all cost about the same. I wish these would just come standard with a flash. Hey Nikon, go ahead and include them and you can even charge us $20 more and we'd be thrilled that it was in the box! Yes, we photogs are that dumb and easy to please! All in all, other than price, this is perfect and worth 4 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK I bought the OM-400 to try to improve my indoor flash photography. It's not that my pictures were bad, but using a flash straight ahead tends to overexpose the face even when using a spot meter on the face with Active-D lighting turned on on my Nikon D300. I much prefer the look of my photos when I have the option to bounce the flash off of the ceiling. The problem with bounce flash is that there has to be a relatively low ceiling (8ft) and the subject(s) have to be close (10ft) in order for the results to be good. When I go out, the ceilings tend to be taller that 8ft and subjects are sometimes further than 10 ft. away. I was hoping that the OM-400 would simulate a bounce flash for those occasions, but results are only mildly improved from what I get without it, plus it decreases flash power. On the plus side, it is small, light and easy to attach and remove from the flash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect addition to the SB-400 After finally getting tired of taping a business card to the top of my SB-400 with mixed results, I decided to take a chance on the OM-400. I had used, and liked, an Omni-Bounce with a Vivitar 2500 when I was still shooting film, so it seemed like a safe bet. Within the limits of this tiny flash unit's capabilities, it did not disappoint. Flash was noticeably softer, with more predictable results than bouncing off the ceiling. And, of course, it is just as useful for vertical shots, an important consideration with a flash that doesn't swivel sideways. Only drawback I've found is that you have to remove the unit to change the angle of bounce and then reattach. A minor inconvenience, to be sure, and one that is more a function of the flash's design than the OM-400. Easily the best $ I ever spent on a piece of photo equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great inexpensive softbox!! This is one amazing accessory! Turned the flashhead on my SB-400 to first click (60 degrees), installed the OmniBounce and the resulting images were outstanding! Soft lighting with essentially no shadow. An absolute must-have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I have owned a previous version of the Sto-Fen Omni bounce, and they all work as advertised. A simple, inexpensive product. I used one on an older Nikon flash, and my only complaint was that it had a tendency to fall off. This particular model attaches with a click to my SB 400, and does not appear to have that problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the Price, Hard to Beat I use this with my SB400 (of course, it was designed to be used specifically with the SB400!) and it does an adequate job in diffusing the flash, depending on how far away your subject is, or if you're trying to utilize the tilt/bounce feature of your SB400. For closer shots, I dial down the flash compensation on my D40x, and I get fairly good results. Depending on the ambient lighting, I was able to achieve slightly better results (at the close range level) with a white paper-made diffuser using 24lb spec sheets. But for convenience sake, this is the way to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for reflecting light Great for when there is no where to bounce the light. Easy to put on and carry. Flash can still rotate under diffuser. Buy it!
