[SOLD] New flash diffuser

i've came up with a nifty device that i plan to list on ebay. hopefully it will sell to support my(un-named) addiction. here's how i'm going to list it. how do you like it and the image?? any suggestions??

Why pay $20+ for a flash diffuser? Iíve come up with a nifty design that works as well as all the mass produced products but with an added option. This bounce card has an adjustable bounce surface. Itís angle of bounce can be adjusted from less than 45į to over 135į. Itís also so light you donít even know itís on the flash. Have you ever been using a bounce card and your subject is too far away for the flash to work? Using this card you do not have to remove it to use the flash in itís straight on position. Just flip the front of the card up and reposition the flash head for regular use.

This will work on any off camera flash unit that tilts. It will let you adjust the angle of reflection/bounce to whatever degree you desire.

Iíve been using this on my Sigma 500 DG super. Itídoes not have a raised rim around the fresnel lens. My Pentax af400ftz does but I use a piece of foam filled double sided tape to raise the contact velcoís height (included if you need it or not).

I make these one at a time so if you purchase one donít expect a perfectly mass produced product. What you get is a product that works well for what itís intended to do. Personally, I think itís well worth $10 delivered. Problems? Contact me.

Thanks for looking,
Roy

mine came as new for 140usd delivered. since i've had it it's become quite an item. i don't think they sell for less than 180+ on ebay anymore. at 249, i'd say it's a little high but you can take it back, you know where you got it. go in and pull out 2 $100 bills and see if money talks. that's how i got my 500 f4.5 for $300 less than listed. i had another $100 bill in my pocket just in case.
