Camera Pop-up Flash Mirror-style Diffuser
by thingster, published
This thing is a mirror-style diffuser for your on-camera flash. It turns the harsh light of the on-camera flash into a external-like flashgun for nice looking illuminations with soft shadows.
Note: Unfortunately not tested yet as my 3d printer is broken at the moment. ;-/ It should work for most cameras, but was originally designed to sit on a Nikon D3100/D3200. If it doesn't work for you just grab the design and improve it to fit your camera.
- Print in white plastics. PLA is recommended for better preserving the dimensions of the object.
- Optional, but strongly recommended: Take a piece of aluminum foil, cut it into a rectangular (about 60 x 50 mm) and glue it into the space of the big slanted face at the top of the object. This will give it a kind of 'mirror' that bounces the light much better than only white plastics.
- Open your on-camera flash and put the diffuser onto the hotshoe.
- Take photos!
