    The cheap way.. use a aluminium foil angled for bounce, and secure with blu-tack

    can check out the 'flip-it' (I'm doing an MO for it) it acts like a good o'l bounce card, but with some added flexibility.. the small one is about 7.5 by 6.5 cm, large one is 11 by 10... been using it for about a week with good results especially when tilted back a bit!

    for me, the omnibounce gives rather poor results. i just don't really like the light quality, also it gives my photos a slight yellow cast and eats up flash power. I much prefer the 'harsher/stronger' bounce light with a bounce card for a little fill.

    I will second adding Lighsphere to the list. Just got mine from CP last week, I am on the verge of throwing away my omnibounce. First time in years I like take photos with an onboard flash. But does put a strain on the flash unit.

    Just Bounce will be the other alternative

    where can get? the website claims that "Guranteed to give more accurate colours than any plastic diffuser cap", is it true?

    I use a Fed-Ex white envelope. It is free and recycleable also. You can use it to store prints later.

    I find that a large bounce card attached to the flash head with velcro's the best. For me i use an omnibounce for my 420EX. Previously i did consider lightsphere but some pple say it's not gd.

    on the other hand.. i've came across some of my fren's wedding photos.. it appears that the background isn't well lit.. am i right to say it's gotta do with the metering instead of the flash adjustment? how do u recitify this issue in order to have a well-balanced lit photo?

    appreciate ur comments..
    The ballroom where weddings are held are normally not well lit.
    Your flash will not be able to light up the background, only can light up the people.
    To get brighter background...use higher ISO, slower shutter speed or larger aperture
