Enhance the quality of light coming from your on-camera flash with the OM-CT45 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

OM-CT45 Omni-Bounce Diffuser is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could have been ideal - but..... Stofens are nothing new on the market and I'm actually a long time fan. As well as Stofens for the Metz 45 series flashes, I also have a number that are used a lot on Metz 40 MZ 2 and 40 MZ 3i flashes .... which is exactly why I feel this one comes up short. Ideally it would have been a one piece unit like every other Stofen I have, and slip tightly over the flash head - it isn't quite like that. It appears that an existing Stofen was mounted in a black plastic snap-on housing and the whole thing clips onto the Metz flash in the same way the Metz WA diffuser does. I could live with that....except that the unit isn't at all light tight and a lot of light escapes backwards through the gap onto the Metz sensor (which lives just below on the upper front of the flash). Which makes Auto Mode on the flash absolutely useless with the Stofen installed and the flash completely closed.If the head is tilted upwards, the issue disappears quite quickly, but it shouldn't be there at all. Granted it's just fine in Manual Modes and neither TTL or eTTL is affected, but I personally use Auto a lot and was a little frustrated with what is basicly a ridiculous oversight. Tape is a quick fix, but makes it a lot less of a quick installation. I use this - but basicly only because nothing else on the market that I am aware of will fit a Metz 45. But I'm MUCH rather have something that I don't have to think about every time I use it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and practical We use the product professionally and it is great that a company makes such a simple lightweight add-on diffuser that works so well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use There a couple of gaps when mounted that you may loose a little light, no problem to cover with tape, otherwise I am pleased

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sto-Fen diffuser for a Metz flash I recently upgraded from my trusty aftermarket flash to a Metz, choosing to bypass the well-traveled Canon flashes because I like the heft of a potato masher and an offset bracket. That 'well-traveled' phrase is a hint of things to come. Being a common brand, I assumed there were would be an adequate number of factory or aftermarket diffusers but I was wrong. Turns out my Metz is a breed apart, and I had a hard time finding anything. Sto-Fen appeared to be the only readily-available seller of diffusers for this particular flash. I figured I'd be getting Sto-Fen's typical all-covering cap. Nope -- it's a cap attached to a base. And like other users of this model, I came to the same conclusions: rather than design a cap for this flash, it appeared that Sto-Fen took an existing cap and nailed it onto an adapter base. I would have preferred -- and expected -- a custom-fitted unit instead of what appears to be an afterthought/leftover, hastily adapted to meet a need. Although it's narrower than the flash head, the width of the diffuser-proper is the same as the width of the primary reflector. My instincts tell me that because it's offset from the flash tube (due to the height of the base), I'm not getting the most effective diffusion possible but without scientific testing there's no way to verify this. But when all is said and done, it works.
