    Have you read your flash manual, or even tried to do some research online? Simple Google searches like "What is a flash diffuser for" will get you a lot of info.

    Hi hammiepie,

    Hi I am a newbie too. But it would be good if you were to find out the information on your part by using Google ... yes, that American company having issues with the Chinese government, or if you are anti-Google, there's always Microsoft's Bing.

    I think members don't like to answer questions where the TS has not started any investigation on his/her own. Maybe you are busy, so is everyone else. Remember back in school, teachers gave homework to students? Leaving school doesn't mean you stop learning and doing homework. In fact, once you leave school, you have already enrolled yourself in the University of Life.

    PS: I don't want to sound mean, BUT there's a reason why there are authors to write manuals and books for newbies like us. If you can spend time trying to determine which camera to buy, should spend the same amount of time investigating about using the flash.

    Wish you good luck. Cheers.
