Sto-Fen OM-F1 Overview

  • 1Description

Dramatically improve the light from your DSLR's pop-up flash with the OM-F1 Omni-Flip from Sto-Fen. This device slides into your camera's hot shoe and hangs a dome diffuser in front of your flash. This dome 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-F1 Reviews

OM-F1 Omni-Flip is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but someone could do this better. I use the built-in flash on my Pentax K10D to control my off-camera Metz 48 AF-1 works great. The K10D can do this with the built-in flash either only controlling or also contributing to the exposure. For the second case, it's nice to have better light quality than the direct glare of the built-in flash, which is where this comes in. And for that, it works very well doesn't interfere with the wireless optical communication and makes the built-in flash deliver a bit of diffused but on-axis light. Results when using it on the built-in flash alone are less stellar, but a marked improvement over not having the device. Either way, P-TTL metering works fine and exposure is good. I had been using a homemade origami construction, which also worked okay, but it was always a pain to make it stay in the right place. This is much better. A major downside is that it's constructed in a way that doesn't really fold flat, and the little arm snaps to the diffuser in a way which is clearly not meant for repeated disassembly and reassembly. I don't think it would have been hard or expensive for Sto-Fen to have made this connection better. And really, we're talking about 30 piece of plastic snapped to a 20 piece of plastic: for the $17 retail price I think they could have spared a little more for a better connection. Also, it must be said, it looks pretty dorky like a gimmick, not professional equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product This device fits in the flash shoe on the top of the camera and holds a diffuser in front of the pop up flash. It's not as good as a separate flash unit with a diffuser, but this does about all you can do for a pop up flash to diffuse and soften the light.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Insuficient product description This device is designed to work with the in camera popup flash, I was thinking that this diffuser will work with my external flash. Other than that is OK.
