    Just purchased a 580 ex II about a week ago. I have been using it mostly for outdoor fill, or indoor bounce. What else should i get for this? Diffuser? different bounce cards?

    Get a Gary Fong Lightsphere, Clear. Reason why I recommend clear over the cloud is that you can just line the clear lightsphere with tissue and essentially have the same softer effect as the cloud lightsphere.

    Of if you want the cheap route, there is a knock off of GFs Lightsphere branded Lambency for a fraction of the cost. No experience with the Lambency brand... they do look very similar and it's really not that hard to replicate(vinyl molding). You can find Lambency @ ebay, HK of course =P


    cheers.
