This little piece slides into the flash socket on the Sony A6000 camera to hold the flash up. This allows the flash to bounce off the ceiling instead of hitting the person directly. A bounced flash produces a less harsh image. Obviously no support is needed, and normal fill levels are fine. The hole allows you to hook it to your camera or lens cap strap so it is always there when you need it. It may work on other Sony cameras providing the flash design and socket position are similar. To use it, pop up the flash and hold it back with your finger, slide the piece into the flash socket and then rotate until it holds back the flash on its own.

hi great part but do you want design near as bouncer flash gary fong as difuser an protect the screen thanks

That's an interesting design. I'm not a fan of the diffuser approach though. For what I photograph, it just tends to reduce the total amount of light from the flash. That''s why the current design is so short so it doesn't interfere with the light.

Made this, it was an easy (and quick) print. The only problem is that the guide number is not nearly high enough for this to be effective (unless your subject is inches from the ceiling).

True, it does kill the range. That said, indoors with 8 ft ceilings at 5-10 feet it works well for me

I shouldn't expect it to be a SpeedLight should I? Thanks for posting this, gives me some other ideas for items that might be useful in the hotshoe!
