My interpretation of The Pringles Macro Flash on Sony A6000 Filmed with Sony QX-10

Here is my twist on the Pringles Can Macro Diffuser. It is so simple and diffuses the flash very wide for a Pringles can. I'm sure someone has tried this method somewhere on the internet. I thought Id make a quick build video. I rec'd the vid with a Sony qx-10 I just picked up. The macro lens is Pentax-A1.7/50mm on Vivitar at 22 Tubes

Thanks Yes but BBQ is best for Snoots.

I concur. I think my Pringles macro flash tubes/snoot is BBQ. I have a mini one (for reverse lens macro shooting) that is original/plain (low sodium) though.

Nice idea on the barndoors and yet retained the diffuser. Now I'm interested in making one (my 3rd overall).

Those tubes work super for macro work. Surprisingly very well. Thanks for sharing your design with us!
