What's the advantage of using this device instead of say using
ambient lighting? I haven't done macro before.

here is a crop of a macro of a Leatherman Supertool, which is
polished stainless steel. (pretty hard to do in the field) I shot
it without a tripod (which I would only do if a tripod was not a
viable option) The bounce was fully extended so that light is
reduced through the area with the white paper around it and then
provides a second source from the transparent bulb, in effect
producing to different light sources.
A tripod would have produced an even clearer shot.

Impressive.. thanks for the detailed info! As mentioned before I hadn't done macro before so now it's clearer..
