Sto-Fen OM-EV overview

  • 1Description

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

OM-EV Omni-Bounce Diffuser is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple, yet very effective I used the Canon 270ex on the Canon G12 at Disneyland's Smallworld ride. The first test was direct on-camera flash set on auto, I took a picture of my daugher and the image was harsh and the colors in the background was bareley visible due to the over powering flash. I took a second shot with the Omni Flash Diffuser on this time, also set on auto but with the flash tilted straight up to the ceiling. The image of my daughter was almost perfect with the subject lit smoothly with the little bit of light spilled from the side of the diffuser and the rest of the light lit up the interior of the ride which made the background colors more visible. I reccomend a diffuser and indirect flash for indoors at all times, yes it uses a little more juice from the battery but shouldn't be a big deal, just bring a spare set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definite improvement to a bare flash Since I purchased a G10, I've been trying to get around the limitations of indoor shooting as typical flash photos really bug me and using high iso is not an option with my camera. Bought a 270ex for its bounce capability, however, depending on the room I would end up with dark eyes and/or an unnatural heavenly glow from above. The omni bounce seems to resolve these issues pretty well and results in a more natural light distribution. Not sure if its the best of its kind but compared to other diffusers it is extremely portable, attaches firmly to camera and doesn't attract odd looks from people around you. The one downside, given that the 270ex is a small flash the omni bounce will noticeably cut the power of the flash. That said, I can still get decent results in my family room that has an 11 foot ceiling although I'm likely at the limit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Minimal softening This does soften the flash a little bit but the effect is not as great as on a larger flash that I have with a similar product. This is perhaps due to the fact that this Canon is such a small flash. But, using this on straight on flash is not that different from straight on flash without it. And using it on the flash head in bounce mode it's not that different from bounce mode without it. I think I will end up using my decades long practice of bounce flash with a very small white card rubberbanded above the flash to reflect some light forward.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent diffuser This is a small piece of plastic that should not cost $, but it does, and I bought it and kept it on my 270EXII basically most of the time. It adds little bulk to an already small flash. One added benefit is that I can slip inside a small piece of color correcting gel (e.g., CTO) without resorting to messy tapes.Don't expect wonderfully soft light from this diffuse. Even with the diffuser, the size of the light source is small. One would hope for bounced light from ceilings, etc., but the 270EXII does not put out much light to begin with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sto-Fen delivers another good product. Softening the light with this handy is just what the doctor ordered. The fix is excellent and the soft fill warms the subject. I use Sto-Fen diffusers on my 580EXII, 430EX and 270EX and I shoot professionally. Thank you Sto-Fen and B&H.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works well! This product stays on my flash almost all the time. The results are excellent and I have better control over the exposure. An external flash is a giant step forward for anyone and the diffuser makes it work even better.
Date published: 2011-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! This diffuser fits the 270EX II perfectly and isn't prone to popping off. I leave it on the flash all the time. I use the 270EX II in bounce mode with the diffuser attached 99% of the time. The diffuser softens the shadows on headshots. I use the 270EX II with diffuser on my Canon 6D as a fill light most of the time. Wouldn't want to be without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right It's compact, has good features (master / slave mode), shoots straight and up, accepts light modifier and simply perfect as a travel attachment if you want more than just a basic pop up flash. Can be used as a hair fill, background and other neat addition to a more complex strobe light setup.
