    looks nice.... but i got some comments...

    the nylon is good diffuser i suppose, confirm the lighting is better than the plastic diffuser. but the weakness also lies on the nylon... it gets dirty easy & will also block off certain amount of light.. so have pro & cons, cannot use in dust prone area.

    I actually tried it out before it was officially launched..
    I tried it on my metz 32 z1. it didn't stay on my flash and keeps slipping off.

    But i think it should work nicely. There's a sliver lining inside the cloth material to reflect the light forwards.

    the expandable opening is secured with r rubber band, so it should fit all nikon/canon flashes (not those big metz hammerheads)
    hello kitty... cos it will be very very kawaii

    so can someone tell me:

    Isn't the Omnibounce the same as the plastic diffuser cap that comes with the flash (I refer to the Nikon SB80DX)? At least I know they are of the same built.

    Would Eastgear's softbox be similar to a Lumiquest?

    Are they all the same?

    another view from me... beside that nylon attracts dust and also it stick with it. if you were to go into the open and shoot in the rain or maybe bit of drizzy... it get wet and more dust will still to it...

    Default Fit

    Looked at it today. Too small to fit on Canon Speedlite 550EX.... maybe can squeeze it on a 420EX.

    Anyone got a review on it?

    How does this softbox compare to a bounce card and a Stofen Omnibounce?

    Using my Stofen now since I haven't made my bounce card. Heard ppl saying dat Stofen Omnibounce not really good in diffusing the light.
