The Best Diffuser for 580 ex II
Dec 2, 2011

I am bit lost in hundreds of flash diffusers available...

http://photo-tips-online.com/review/best-flash-diffuser/ provides tons of tests and rankings, however, I would appreciate some real-life feedback from people who tried/tested different ones.

What is the best yet reasonably priced to use with 580 ex II? I need it mainly for portraits and object closeups.

I am considering a few options, purely based on reviews and marketing hype:

1. Gary Fong pufer. it looks as too overpriced for a piece of cheap plastic though.
2. Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce.
3. Gary Fong Lightsphere.
4. Gary Fong WhaleTail.
5. Rogue FlashBender Bounce Card.
6. PRESSlite VerteX - looks very interesting.

Please comment.

Thanks
