Cheap DIY Open-Top Flash Diffuser a la Home Depot


Flickr user boingr came up with a great idea for those of us who don’t want to spend money on a flash diffuser from a camera shop — head over to Home Depot instead. All he did was buy an Amerimax Home #85208 downspout funnel, shimmy it onto his Canon Speedlite 580EX II, and presto: Open-Top Flash Diffuser.

The diffuser apparently fits snuggly on several of the flashes he has around the house, and for the ones on which it doesn’t, “one of those fat rubber bands that come around broccoli bunches” helped to solve the problem.
