a good test is to have a nice wall behind the subject to cast shadows
Didn't have time until today to do the bounce card with and without plastic card holder test. The exif are 400D manual mode with 50mm F1.8 lens, at s = 1/40s, a =f2.8, flash 580EX set to ETTL-II mode.
Bounced ceiling without bounce card
Bounced ceiling with white card in plastic card holder
Bounced ceiling with white card WITHOUT plastic card holder
Bounced ceiling with yellow card in plastic card holder
Bounced ceiling with green card in card holder
Bounced ceiling with red card in card holder
White and red cards in their respective card holder (note, green card is just behind the red one)
Yellow card and green card in their card holder (white card is behind yellow card in holder)
Personally, I see little difference with the test on with and without card holder (but perhaps indeed the card holder is a little harsher) but I don't think it is too unusable. Please feel free to comment

This photo was taken with the same diffuser, it also produced a good result. The model was standing 1 ft away from the wall.

I have a question, what the diff for using an onmibounce and a bounce card?? Are they the same??? If not, which one is better??
A bounce card is meant to be used either at 60 degrees or 90 degrees and reflects the flash light forward giving a stronger flash of light towards the subject as opposed to a simple bounced without reflector or diffuser.
actually i think the bounce card is to direct some of the light forward towards the subject
it can create catchlights and fill some of the shadows from a ceiling bounce
Advertising doesn't require u to dig up all these threads right??
