    I once paid 18 for a white stoffen omni bounce, what a rip off. It does the job but that sort of money for a bit plastic is far to expensive. I am upgrading from 430ex to 580exII speedlites and have looked on e-bay at third party stoffens. You can get 3 multi coloured ones for 5. Just thought i would ask if anyone has used these third party stoffens and if the result is as good as a genuine one?

    thanks

    I use empty refill liquid soap bottles, the dispenser type, cost about 2.75 each but you get the soap as well! A bit of coloured gel, the sample swatches work fine, negates the need for coloured diffuser. I could not bring myself to pay 18 for something that must have cost 50p to manufacture, OK there are tooling costs etc. but the 3 for 5 are still making a profit!

    All a Stofen does is making your flash into a barebulb, ie sends the light in all directions. Any tupperware will do the job just as well, so long as it is translucent. A third party job will do pretty much the same thing.
