Hey people!

Just got my LX 3 two weeks ago; interested in taking macro shots so thinking of building a DIY diffuser for it or anyone have any idea gt any customized diffuser being sold for LX 3?

I guess i am a bit paranoid yea lol... but just wondering any adverse effects if i used a self built diffuser i.e. too much heat concentration etc....

Thanks and regards

Many people here use DIY diffusers and there isn't a problem with them. By the way, what do you mean by too much heat concentration? :)

Sometimes I use tissue paper to diffuse my on-board flash too. Can be pretty effective, I've never heard of anyone who warns against using of it though:)

becos its not a perm solution
and will not last since it's tissue paper.

DIY a plastic and make use of your hotshoe to hold it.
Calculate the angle and dismension of the diffuser plastic.

Mark it on a piece of plastic then cut it then use heat to bend to the shape u want with soldering iron or heatgun.

If works well you can mass produce and sell to LX3 users hehe
