    I hoped to have enough spare cash this month to buy a flash gun and diffuser but as it happens im broke :rofl:

    Would something like this see me over for the time being or are the results not worth it.

    I saw someone take a ping pong ball and cut a pie section out of it and fit it over his on board flash. Seemed to work well.
