S1 Flash Diffuser - Do It Yourself like this

This may have been mention before but here's a simple way to improve flash diffusion on the S1 - or any other camera with a pop up flash.

Cut the bottom off a 35mm film cannister. Then cut one side of the cannister all the way through. Trim some excess to make the opening fit easily over the flash tube. Apply tape to the edges if you wish to prevent scratching the flash tube. Mount the diffuser as shown and have fun!

The cat pictures show a noticeable (complete?) lack of animal "green eye" and there's no flash overexposure here. The image is cropped and resized for the web at 72 dpi.
