Take the edge off

Ted, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Accessory diffusor for Nikon SB-R200. It helps soften the light a bit and takes the edge off of shadows. Especially handy for closer shots. Note that it does reduce the reach of the flash, but that should be ok given its main use for close work. This really should be an included item with the SB-R200, but note that it is not.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight

They work

  • Excerpt: I use these doing macro flash work, often of dragonflies in wetlands. They do a good job of giving an evan lighting. The down side is that they are easy to lose when traipsing through rougher habitats like cattails.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight

Great for macro!

  • Excerpt: Works well with the Nikon SB-R200 for extremely closeup shots. It reduces the harshness of the light and produces a more pleasing effect. It's rather expensive for a piece of plastic though.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Pricey poor value

Works well but easily lost in the field

Jer, Adorama
4 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The product is part of the R1 macro lighting system from Nikon. It works very well but using it in the field one has to be very careful not to knock off the SW11 & the SZ1 filter holder which has to be in place to attach the SW11 diffuser. In the field hit a branch even lightly and off come the parts and in thick scrub often they are lost. It's a great product if only those attachable parts were more stable.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Construction

very overpriced

  • Summary: Unbelievable price. In order to get this diffusion facility for my SB-R200 macro setup, it costs [$] for 2 of these, only to discover that they don't fit on the flashes without the SZ-1 filter holder. So 2 of those cost another £15.98. Total cost over 50 quid for 4 cheap pieces of plastic which must cost pennies to manufacture.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Construction
