Hard to install

This diffuser is supposed to be designed for the 420EX but it is REALLY hard to install. I would like to have the option taking it off so the flash can be stored in its case but since it is so hard to install I am afraid to take it off. Once I got it on and used it I was pleased with the results.

Bought for the 430EX Speedlight

Got this for the 430EX Speedlight, and it was a tight fit. But I've got it on and it stays in place. Works well as a diffuser to calm down the flash.

It really softens light, I always use it on my 420EX flash unit for close ups, portrait shots.

B&H rocks. Great site, huge product selection and superb customer service and shipping. I got my diffuser in no time. Having read other reviews I was a bit concerned about the tight fit of the diffuser to the 420EX. Sure enough, I could tell I was not going to get it onto the flash without a struggle. Then I came up with an idea that worked perfectly. I set my oven to 125. I then put the diffuser, opening down, onto a cookie sheet and placed in the oven for a few minutes. Once removed, it was a bit hot to the touch, but it slipped on to my 420EX easily. A couple of weeks later and it now slips on and off just fine. As for performance, my flash photography improved dramatically. I can't believe I went so long with it.

Works like it should but it took a while to get it to fit on my flash. I have the 420 EX and this was the only one that fit it but it was a struggle getting it on - otherwise it's fine.

question

Will this fit on a 420 EZ?
Asked by: Anonymous
No unfortunately it will not. The flashes have different dimensions. We do not have any options made specifically for the 420EZ flash, but we do have a universal-fit type of option. See the link below for details:http://bhpho.to/19jr53h

question

Will this work with a Canon EF-S10-18mm lens to spread light across the entire photo across the entire zoom?
Asked by: Ken S.
The above answer depends on the size of the room in which you will be photographing, and how you frame your image. While the Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 420EX Speedlight does not list a specific focal length coverage, the unit is designed to spread light omnidirectionally. At 18mm in most rooms, it should provide more than adequate coverage for your needs. At 10mm, in a small- to average-sized room, you should still have adequate coverage compared to using the flash without the diffuser. However, in larger rooms, simply due to light falloff and physics (inverse square law), it would work, but may vignette towards the edges of the frame. As it depends on the framing and size of the room (in addition to the focal length), the best I can recommend would be to purchase and test the unit in the rooms in which you will be photographing. If it does not work for your needs, this item does have a 30-Day Return Policy. In any case, it would be much better than the flash used by itself, which is only designed to cover out to 24mm.
