Im really new to flash so i have this question.
what is the difference between an Omnibounce and a Diffuser?
Omnibounce is one of the Flash Diffuser...
some are plastic caps to put over the flash.. often known as tupperware diffusers.. ahha..
others are white cards to bounce light in a certain direction.. others are like the gary fong lightsphere..
the Omnibounce is a nicer name for tupperware diffuser..
Actually I thought the term "tupperware diffusers" is referring to garryfong lightsphere lookalikes...
Because they look like tupperware. And some people actually got around the same effect with those disposable containers used for taobao food... Just cut a hole put the flash head through, and use gaffer tape and tape it tight.

I normally refer them as "light modifier", because not all of them diffuse light. For example my snoot actually would give a harsh lighting.
At the end, it is the effect that you are going for...
For me even though I dun always use the omnibounce, it's often in my bag.
sorry to add-on, may i ask a noob question?
Does Omnibounce need an external surface (wall / ceiling) to bounce the light?
That was what a guy on the street told me sometime ago, when i was taking an outdoor pic, with the omnibounce on my external flash at 45 degrees. He said i should be better of using the Lightsphere....
so if out on the street might as well point the flash forward..
