Hot shoe mount problems, otherwise fine – Portable Lights Tipper Pop up Flash Diffuser for Canon / Nikon DSLR - Black Reviews

posted by Cyrena on 02/10/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Lights tipper works as advertised. There's a shiny reflective surface held out in front of the pop up flash that bounces light up to use the ceiling as a reflector. Tipper does a good job of catching all of the flash so that it doesn't blow out the edges.
Cons:
Hot shoe mount did not initially fit. I had to push it in fairly hard, which sliced off a bit of the mount from the tipper. After that it fit fine (snug).
Other:
Of course this item works best when there are low ceilings or walls nearby to bounce light off of, and you will need to bump the exposure on your camera to compensate for having less light.
Bottomline:
It's a little bit expensive considering the low build quality, but it will get the job done. If they fix the mount problem, it would be a fine product.
