    Default inflatable flash diffuser

    Is this worth it? I am not looking to spend a ton of money. just wondering if this will help at all with harshness of flash

    Flash diffusers will help some - but what will really help is getting the flash off of the camera.

    I try to not use flash but on cloudy days have a hard time in the house. And I can't afford one of those separate flashes. I guess it us a start!

    I have a lightscoop (http://www.lightscoop.com/) and love it for low light snaps The customer service is great too!


    ETA: Oops, I didn't realize you meant for an off camera flash.... If you are using a speedlite wouldn't you just bounce it?

    I want one too! Sadly, they don't support my camera, but that looks like an awesome idea!

    Beth, this is awesome! I've been really wanting a speedlight, but the funds just aren't there right now (and, if they were, I'd go for a new lens first!). This would be a great interim alternative.

    And, to the OP, you'll have to go for something like this. The diffuser you linked to is strictly for a speedlight, and if I'm reading your posts correctly, you only have an onboard flash.

    This is the one I have. It helps to soften the harsh flash (even if used directly on the subject). I have never seen the one you posted, interesting idea, though.
