Since I’m not ready to use flash (external) is this a good second option for low light? I will be using the white one.

I know there are some defenitions on google about a diffuser and flash but what is a diffuser like in the real world. How will this help me

Thanks

I have one of those I started with and still use it now and then for nature close-ups when hiking when not carrying a speed light.

The clear one does give you a sense of what a diffuser does when all you have is the pop-up flash to work with. Using it for a short time convinced me how useful a speed light could be, so it was definitely worth the few dollars cost.

I used it mostly for close-ups where the difference was obvious between the diffuser and bare flash.

Thanks. Yea I want something to start with then upgrade later. I’ve been watching a lot of videos on flash. And it seems like you only have to choices . ETTL/TTL or manual flash settings

Dosen’t seem so intimidating
