We accidentally ordered this bounce in stead of the one we usually use, and were pleasantly surprised.
This bounce is small and doesn't extend out as far as the Sto-Fen Omnibounce we are accustomed to using, so on first inspection didn't think it would work as well. But it's a great little bounce! The fit is good: it's tight enough not to fall off during use and not too tight to put on in the first place.
We highly recommend it, even though we will be ordering the Omnibounce next to see how it compares on the 600RTs.

This diffuser kept falling off the flash, it wouldn't sit still! It gave me so much anxiety to constantly have to fix it.

Not much to say here, bought it to use on a Yongnuo Speedlite YN600EX-RT. Works just fine, nice fit, does what it has to do.

Works Very Well

By Roxie2401

Comments about Vello Bounce Dome Diffuser for Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT:

This fits the Canon 600Ex-RT perfectly. And, it can remain on, even in the case/pouch. It naturally has to be removed if you want the pull-out white bounce card. It reduces the harshness of a direct flash without significant reduction in power or coverage.

Comments about Vello Bounce Dome Diffuser for Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT:

Well constructed lite weight flash accessory that does a excellent job of toning down the typical harsh flash illumination. Very simple to use and I have used this item without altering my flash settings. The diffuser stays put even when moving around crowds of people.

    Comments about Vello Bounce Dome Diffuser for Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT:

    This is so helpful to diffuse the light from my 600 just a little more than the built in flip up diffusor on the flash and is much smaller than a softbox. Which also means I can use it with a softbox for additional diffusion.

          As a diffuser it is great but you can use the built in flash diffuser. Dome should have been larger so you can have a more effective bounce.

                    The 600 EX-RT has a built in white card and diffuser. I'm not sure how much use this will get. I did try it out & It will give me another option, seemed to work nicely.

                      i like the built in groove on the sides of this diffuser. the vello diffuser for the 580 EXII gradually degraded and warped the rubber inset on the head of my 580EXII flash. this caused the rubber part to separate from the flash head.

                      the diffuser for the 600EX-RT does not touch the rubber inset at all.
