You must be referring to the Sto-Fen Omnibounce. It's meant to spread out the light to the ceilings and walls when you do bounce flash.

As a diffuser in direct-flash mode, there is not much significant softening of the light. To get softer light, you need to increase the size of the light, which the Omnibounce does not do.

Not worth the money, IMHO.

do you think the Lumiquest Promax 80-20 or Metz Reflex diffuser is more worth it than the Sto-Fen Omnibounce?

Metz diffuser
