Are on camera speedlight diffusers worth it?
Jun 18, 2012

Hello, I do a lot of on location photoshoots, and am not really able to bring a whole lot of lighting equipment. What I normally have with me however is a speedlight or two. One is normally always mounted on my camera's hotshoe.

I was wondering if it would be worth it if I bought a diffuser of some kind for it. Would it even make that much of a difference?

I was thinking something like this:

Any thoughts?
