    Hey people!

    Just got my LX 3 two weeks ago; interested in taking macro shots so thinking of building a DIY diffuser for it or anyone have any idea gt any customized diffuser being sold for LX 3?

    I guess i am a bit paranoid yea lol... but just wondering any adverse effects if i used a self built diffuser i.e. too much heat concentration etc....

    Thanks and regards

    Many people here use DIY diffusers and there isn't a problem with them. By the way, what do you mean by too much heat concentration?

    Hey kelvin
    Thanks for your input, appreciated.

    Anyway just wondering is it feasible to use opaque plastic bags or tissue papers as diffuser. Dont really see pple doing so though, any idea whats the reason?

    Sometimes I use tissue paper to diffuse my on-board flash too. Can be pretty effective, I've never heard of anyone who warns against using of it though

    becos its not a perm solution
    and will not last since it's tissue paper.

    DIY a plastic and make use of your hotshoe to hold it.
    Calculate the angle and dismension of the diffuser plastic.

    Mark it on a piece of plastic then cut it then use heat to bend to the shape u want with soldering iron or heatgun.

    If works well you can mass produce and sell to LX3 users hehe
