FZ50 with Gary Fong Puffer Pop Up Flash Diffuser.

Just purchased this little Gary Fong pop up flash diffuser to-night.
It goes by the brand name " Puffer ".
Purchased at Henrys Camera in Brantford Ontario for $25 plus tax.
Tried a dozen test shots with the FZ50 and found I really like the effect.

Neat little thing that works with numerous cameras that come with a pop up flash.
I have the Panasonic Lumux FZ50 as well as the Olympus E510 DSLR.
I have a pair of Olympus FL36 flash guns.
The diffuser head fits perfectly over the face of the FL36.

I put the diffuser head onto the FL36 and took numerous test shots and I'm amazed at the effect.
Very soft lighting and no sign of a shadow.
Works great on the camera's pop up flash and also on the FL36 for more power.

I have a brand new grandson I love to photograph , but I don't feel comfortable blasting flash into his face.
I think this " Puffer" has solved my problem.
Nice soft light when you need it.
Just thought I'd pass this info along.
Can't say enough about the tips that are passed along on this site.

Too bad the world in general could not produce a site like this where people from everywhere and all walks of life could offer suggestions to help clean up this war torn society we live in.
Remember- your best photo is still in your camera.

Your review was quoted on the Gary Fong site:
I'd ask for some kind of endorsement fee if I were you.

Do you have any before/after shots to show the effect?
