    Default Self made diffuser for build-in flash?

    Has anyone used self made diffuser for build in flash? Since I cant find any diffuser for my Sony alpha's build in flash, i hv to make my own LOL.

    I tried putting tissue onto the flash itself. While it worked to an extend, there is a chao ta smell coming out! So i don dare to put tissue anymore

    I found this thread which the thread starter did a self made diffuser as well. But I think paper might not be the best material for it?

    or does any shop sell build in flash's diffuser?

    I saw one in the mass sales forum here, but that guy didnt sell the diffuser for Sony Alphas (I saw the alpha version but its for sale in Malaysia)

    I saw some at Orient Photo, Sim Lim (6th floor). For Alpha you can also check MS Color in AMK.

    As I have mentioned before, a bro in the other forum is giving it to Sony users for free.

    Make your own. The material can be bought from the supermarkets or even IKEA. The translucent non slip material is great. Then cut it to a desired shape and then fasten it to your camera via velcro tape.

    Go down to IKEA, there is a piece of rubber mat meant for placing inside the drawers... it's translucent and has little pimples.

    thx for the links.

    I actually found out that the "paper" (abit like form type paper, donno what it is) used when packing lenses is pretty good to use. I cut out a long piece and wrap it around my build in flash (leaving a hollow center to disperse heat).

    The ikea diffuser looks good for flash guns though, i will use it when i get an external flash.
