    it's for the popup flash. it doesn't have a mirror, just clear glass to reflect the light, but you could always use silver or gold reflective tape.

    $30 for one though :hs:

    seems okay, but the internal flash is pretty piss weak - this is why it is fixed and cant be used for bounce. You can also do this with a business card or makeup mirror, infact try this first, it probably only works in the smallest of rooms. Or you can try shooting through frosted plastic like a milk bottle, tissue etc.

    or save up for a speedlite :hs:

    a rare instance when Fong as a better idea, the puffer is a beter alternative here, just diffusing the flash. bounce only is pretty weak and isn't that great. Ideally you want boune + a catch light
