    Gary Fong PUF-M43 reviews

    Puffer Flash Diffuser for Micro 4/3 Cameras is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strongly DO NOT recommend this... Under dark conditions, the light will spill from the puffer into the lens! This causes a very strong lens flare that washes out most of the image. The puffer extends out beyond the length of the lens, allowing light to bounce back in, ruining the shot. This probably only happens with the pancake lenses (on the GF1). The zoom lens should extend out further, reducing the chance of this happening. The product also doesn't fold up very well. It's very bulky, and you can get similar results from folding up a piece of diffusion gel and velcro-ing it to your camera. Overall, it is a pointless waste of money. Do not purchase it. PS: I got similar results from holding up a crumpled, translucent grocery bag in front of the flash. The light was diffused enough, but without the spill.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yeah it works, but......... It does what it's supposed to. Used on Olympus epl2 with 17mm pancake lens. Without the generic hood, the image is washed out a bit. Flexible plastic, as my other puffer is. Gotta take time with it. Of course, since it mounts on the hot shoe, you can't use the viewfinder. Other than that, I'm pleased with it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not suited for Olympus OMD EM10 Do not be misled by the caption. The diffuser may be made specifically for micro four thirds cameras but Olympus is not one of them. When I attached the unit to my camera the flash would not pop up and when I checked the diffuser was obstructing it. What made this especially annoying is the fact that it was only available as a special order and I had to wait two weeks for it. I have other Fong diffusers for my Canon cameras that work just fine. This one, sadly, is a clinker.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says it will do Diffuses the harsh pop-up flash on my Panasonic Lumix GX-1 when I need fill flash or to take certain indoor pics. Fits right in my camera bag and slides easily in seconds into the hot shoe. Lightweight, plastic seems sturdy, we'll see how long it lasts. So far so good.
