Sony ping pong ball diffuser

I know it sounds funny, but I found this on another forum and it works.

Since taking these I added some velcro to the flash which keeps it in place, and smoothed the rough edges down. I doubt I will leave this on permanently as it does not allow the flash to completely close, gotta find a spot in the bag to put it without crushing it.

very cool, back in the day when I shot weddings I found that the best flash diffuser was a simple coffee filter held in place with a rubber band. Never would have thought about a ping pong ball
 
if it works

If it works, then great. The great advantage of the ping pong ball is that upon first glance it does not appear homemade. Look closely and you can tell, but at a glance, you would never guess.

I read about this on dpreview a couple of weeks ago and tried it. Been using it ever since. It works great, although I get some weird stares... LOL.

Cheers,
