This sits atop your SLR and softens the light from the factory flash. It fits my Canon EOS XTi and also a Nikon SLR (unsure of model). Try different colors for the "screen" and see what happens!


1] Print one of each piece, except "Assembly.stl" - that's just for reference.
2] Snap the screen into the box.
3] Place the box over your flash.
4] Insert the foot into the shoe on your camera to close the box.
5] Try it out!

I modified the box to fit a Nikon 3100. The flash has to be open to put it on, but it works great. Can I upload the mod?

Yes, please do - just click "Remix It" from my thing (here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:38931/add_derivative)http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... and then you can upload your design files.

not work with D90, but i thing optimize the model for this APN :)

Oh man I just had this exact idea earlier today because I realized that the natural PLA when printed looked almost exactly right for a flash diffuser. I was about to start designing one almost exactly like this and I figured maybe I should check and see if someone else has done so first. Saved me some work! haha. Will definitely be printing this.

Cool, feel free to make it better, too!
