Re: Have you considered a ring flash diffuser?

I did, but talked to a couple people that basically said good concept but didn't work well...do you like them?

I do very little people flash photography and when I do I usually need all the reach my flash will give me. I did some informal testing, but don't recall off-hand how much light I lose with the diffuser.

Don't know what they are currently going for, but awhile back it was around $70USD which I consider a no-brainer - something interesting to experiment with. Btw I paid around $130.

Where I've used it most is for close-up photography. I mount it upside down on an external flash, hold it and the flash in my left hand off camera (but sometimes positioning my lens through the opening), and firing it with a wireless trigger.
