On Camera Flash Diffusers

Let's say you are shooting an event, such as a wedding, where you are moving around a lot and need to keep your flash :shudder: on the camera. What flash diffusers has everybody used and what do you think of them? I really have no experience with them and recently got a job where I will be shooting events for the company. In many of these events the ceilings are to high and the rooms are to crowded for me to simply bounce the flash. What are your thoughts?

I use either the harbor digital bounce diffuser or the lumiquest 80-20

You should check out the Honl light modifiers. They have a good range of options and they all work together in the same system.

I heard good things about the demb defusers. They all tend to do the same things, but some allow more control of light.

Hi Greg,
I use the Demb flash diffuser (classic) for on camera flash. It is a very versatile diffuser. Here is the link for Demb flash products

Do you really have to keep the flash on the camera? I thought that was only done for gathering forensic evidence...
I use an SC-17 and mount the flash hotshoe on a small monopod which I hold in my left hand while trying not to knock anyone on the head. I put a softbox diffuser or a hard 18mm diffuser on the flash, or zoom the flashhead in to get a spot lighting effect. It's really easy to do, as the AF assist light of the flash is like a laser targeting device, you can see where the centre of the flash light will be on the target through the viewfinder and adjust before you shoot.

I use an SC-17 cable, flash mounted on a small monopod, and I hold it in my left hand (a long time ago, I used to use the large Metz flashguns like that because I didn't like the rail system to connect it to the camera and preferred holding it in my left hand while holding the camera in my right hand). I use a softbox or diffuser on the flash and use the flash zoom to modify the light. The AF assist indicates the centre of the flash effect, and can be easily seen through the viewfinder. I find that easier than trying to adjust modifiers on an on camera flash.

I'm actually looking into some lumiquests right now since, let's face it, I can;t always lug my umbrella or softboxes with me all the time.

But I don't think I'll keep my flash on camera as much; I'll most likely use my Yong Nuo Rf-602 and most likely ask a buddy (I get lonely shooting sometimes so I call a friend always LOL) to just hold it in a position for me.

Acutally, after saying that, I realize I will lose the TTL functions (that I feel I need in those quick situations)... Scratch that, I'll use a cable and a buddy LOL ;)
