Looking at buying a Diffuser. Pentax AF360

A quick question. Something like a sto-fen omni-bounce is allot more expensive than a cheap copy from China. Is there any real difference in how the product works ?

I have, or rather had, the Stofen. It wasn't a terribly snug fit and is now lost. There isn't much to it at all and it might be worth looking at the cheaper alternatives, not that the Stofen is expensive.

I still use white styrofoam cups, dollar store drink bottles and when I'm really fancy, I have a white measuring cup with a curved mirror glued to the bottom, usually use those with the 10-17 mm fisheye.

other than that, white card and rubber band.

I'm cheap.
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

ok you have answered my question thanks. Thought there could be some cleaver physics within the higher priced items
