Big­ger tends to be bet­ter when it comes to flash dif­fusers. How­ever, the In­sight Dome prom­ises big per­for­mance from fairly com­pact di­men­sions of 15 x 10 x 8cm.

Slid­ing mount­ing points en­sure com­pat­i­bil­ity with pretty much any flash­gun, and when you’ve got a snug fit, a Vel­cro strap locks ev­ery­thing in place.

The magic hap­pens in­side, where an ar­ray of baf­fles and mir­rors trans­forms harsh light into more flat­ter­ing il­lu­mi­na­tion. Just re­mem­ber you will need to ramp up the flash power by three stops if you’re not shoot­ing in TTL (through the lens) me­ter­ing mode.

The In­sight Dome’s per­for­mance doesn’t dis­ap­point, but nei­ther does it soften light ap­pre­cia­bly bet­ter than the flat-pack dif­fusers in our line-up, yet th­ese won’t hog nearly as much space in your bag.

This nifty lit­tle dome per­forms well, but as it’s moulded in one solid piece it doesn’t pack down
