Flash snap on diffuser, or mini softbox?
7 months ago

I'm buying a flash, and im only going to be using it on my camera. Should i buy a snap on diffuser, or a mini softbox? Do both have a big difference? How about gary fong's light dome? is gary fong light dome kind of both a softbox and a diffuser?

I also realized that there are 2 kinds of mini softboxes, a rectangle, and a octagonal soft box. what are the differences? is it a huge difference if i am going to shoot large family photos (20 people)

any help would be greatly appreciated.
