Harbor Digital Design DD-A18 overview

  • 1Description

Elevate the capabilities of your on-camera flash with this DD-A18 Bounce Diffuser from Harbor Digital Design. Specifically, this diffuser will soften the light coming from your flash for more natural lighting and shadows. Also, this has the effect of increasing the spread of light, enabling use with wide angle lenses. This dome comes with a dedicated adapter for selected flash units and slides easily on, without the use of additional adhesives. The use of an adapter and the snap-on design of the diffuser means that if you want to use it on another flash you can just pick up a different adapter.

    Harbor Digital Design DD-A18 reviews

    DD-A18 Bounce Diffuser is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have element I got this to help with my photography since my flash was creating shadows with the types of pictures i was taking, and now I'm not having any of those problems. This diffuser is easy to put on and take off for traveling as well as it doesn't limit the motion of the flash unit itself. one of the better things is that the arc that the diffuser has helps to radiate the light in all directions not just to one focal point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Value 4 Money! The diffuser significantly softens the light sourced from your flash gun. The improvement is almost same improvement as the step up from pop up to Flashlight. The value for money is extra-ordinary. Only used last night - Test shot photo of me facing a mirror. The 3inch display clearly shows much softer light with diffuser on.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-so, but does the job The best part about the product is you get reasonable quality diffusion in a very portable package. Some stars must drop, however. I did not find the quality matching the price. And, it is not as reliable fit to my SB-600 as some other reviewers imply. It will bump or slip off with active use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straightforward Lighting Improvement Nice product. I looked for a reasonably priced diffuser for my SB-600 - this one is a good deal. Fits the flash well, seems to be sturdy, and adds a nice spread to achieve softer light off a ceiling. Further reduces shadows besides the subject compared to straight bounce. I am mainly trying AUTO exposure mode, indoors, with subjects within 10-12 feet away. Would not want to bounce too far as I could see recycle times might get long. This much bounce & diffusion might make some scenes too soft or low contrast. I'll need to do testing to know when it's best to add this to the flash. Also seems to have an area inside the top of the collar blocked where the SB-600 built-in diffuser stores - need to install with that matched on the DD-A18 or you might loose some light output.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small item that adds a special quality Softens harsh light in afternoon sun. Used in afternoon wedding and photos were beautiful!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light but falls off easily The diffused light is great and more spread out than a regular diffuser but it falls off so very easily. I am going to have to tape it on somehow for the next event I photograph as it was literally falling off every other 5 minutes the first time I used it. Not good when you are at a busy event with tons of people standing around and having to scramble on the floor to look for not onebut twopieces of the diffuser.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Bounce Diffuser I am using this on my Nikon flash. Fits great and does not fall off. The diffusion is excellent and is exactly what I was looking for. Small enough to easily fit in any camera bag. There are other similar products out there but couple this with B&H free shipping for an outstanding deal.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing I found the product did not attach to my my SB-600 very well. Even though it was a tight fit, it fell off easily. I also ended up with more specular highlights with this than bare flash or with the built in wide angle diffuser.
