Was under the impression when I bought this item that it was the factory replacement for the diffuser that came with the 900. This item does fit and works fine but is a bit flimsy and doesn't secure to the flash as well as the factory diffuser.

Close but not close enough

Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Nikon SB-900 & SB-910 Speedlights:

For an extra $6, save yourself aggravation and get the official Nikon SW-13H diffuser dome.

I figured a diffuser dome for a specific speedlight would be simple enough for Vello to get right.  But my copy does not fit tightly enough and fails to properly contact the "dome switch" that tells the speedlight that a diffuser dome is mounted.

Under some circumstances, this will screw up iTTL auto flash exposure as the guide number for the speedlight changes when the dome is on.

Don't buy this product.

      Poor fit to flash

      Comments about Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Nikon SB-900 & SB-910 Speedlights:

      Works as described but it does not attatch well to the SB-910.
      The Vello Bounce Dome FAILS to line up into the SB-910 Guide feet beside the (underside) flash assist module. I will keep it as a spare but will order the Nikon SW-13H for a much better fit.

          I purchased this after breaking the original Dome which came with the SB-900 unit. It fits the unit perfectly, provides diffused light, and all at an excellent price point. Would recommend to anyone needing a replacement.

              I use this all the time on my SB900. Over the years I loose or crack old ones, so my originals have been gone for quite some time. Glad I can still get a replacement.

                      I ordered this product, but was unaware one came with my used SB-900. I have not opened the product but it seems to be a good diffuser. I will keep it as an extra in the case I need it.

                        A diffuser is an absolute must if you work with flash photography. Flash light can be very harsh and contrasty and will give your photos that ugly "tourist snapshot" look. Adding a diffuser softens the light considerably, giving your subjects a more pleasing look. Combine the diffuser with bouncing the flash off the wall and your pictures will come out even better.
