A diffuser for my flash is like a lens hood. I may not always use it, but I want it to be available when I think that it might help. This one works without having to cobble up my new flash with some cruddy velcro straps, glue or titanium rivets. Don't leave home without it. And if you do leave it behind, turn around and go back to get it. But no 180's on 5 lane freeways. Use an exit.

The dome diffuser is very easy to use and attach to the flash. At the same time, it is comes off too easily and doesn't stay on well. The light, however, diffuses very well. Good product for the price.

Diffuses, if you can get it to stay on

By Martin

from Chicago, IL

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 270EX (original ver.) Speedlight:

It does a decent job of diffusing the flash, but it doesn't stay on very well. It takes a lot of pressure to get the diffuser to snap on, and I can only get it to snap onto one side of the flash head. I'm hesitant to apply more pressure because I think I will damage the flash. As a result, I just let it sit loosely on the flash and use my fingers to hold it in place when necessary. I'm going to try using a piece of gaffer's tape to keep it in place. I want to be able to use this diffuser without having to worry about it falling off all the time.

          I just wanted this as a carry around. It does the job. It takes a bit of force to get it to snap in but is solid once it does.

              Have bought other Vello products in past and they were top quality. While the Vello diffuse appears good quality, it does not fit the Canon 270EX-II flash correctly. WAY TOO LOOSE. Will need tape it on or otherwise secure it ... or try a different brand. Sorry only 2 stars vs. the usual 5 I give the other Vello products I have used.

              Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 270EX (original ver.) Speedlight:

              The fit on this is a little too tight and it makes me nervous to have to push on the articulating head hard enough to get it seated properly. Hopefully it will relax and fit better in the future.

              Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 270EX (original ver.) Speedlight:

              This product does what it claims...diffuses the light and fills the shadows. The only problem encountered so far--it does not stay on the flash head very well. I purchased similar diffusers at the same time for my Canon 600EX-RT...they stay on the flash perfectly. This unit has a problem because the width of the diffuser does not adequately cover the indents on the flash head. Returning this unit would not solve the problem. It is the design of the unit. Had the company made the fitting just a smidgen wider, there would be no problem. Get out the duct tape...you will need it...otherwise, it will shoot off the 270 flash head.

                This cap is placed upon our Speedlight 270EXII which sits on our Canon T5i. The diffuser cap makes a difference. It softens human faces and works well with taking photos of animals and not getting "flash eyes". HIGHLEY RECOMMENDED FOR ANY TYPE OF FLASH ON ANY CAMERA!

                      A good way to reduce the harsh flash light. Fits reasonably well. Works both indoors and outdoors. You will still see a shadow if you are in a small room or in a confined area.
