    don't waste your money. make a better bounce card. or go even cheaper.. a lot of times I just bounce off the ceiling, or, I attach and index card to my flash with a rubber band.

    You look like an idiot with a bounce card.

    Just go on eBay and buy a $5 diffuser. I just recenlty got one and it works great!

    depends on how much flash you want ;)

    flip it still works to throw catchlights, and can be adjusted in a second to allow full flash. I do have an omnibounce and a bunch of home made shit, but hardly use it now

    stofen is not a waste of money, it is the standard (and they are cheap).

    flipit looks cool, i havent played with one yet.
