1) what is that white rectangular "cap" that you use to put over your external flash. mostly used on day time... when shooting. is it called diffuser??

2) i have a sb600. and there is similiar lid - glass color( comes with sb600) that i can pull out on top of flash to cover the flash.. is it the same??

both same function. keen to learn.. anyone can help??

That small plastic that u can pull out is for close range shots and your flash is very much in the forward pointing position. it does diffuse the flash abit if u use it for shots not that near, 4-6m away it give similiar effect as those diffuser cap but not as good but somewhere near lah
