    Lani fixed the poll.

    We changed the poll system a long time ago to have exactly X choices on multi choice
    to support the old way of doing comps.

    I'm going to allow from/to number of choices on multi choice polls. Maybe later in the week.

    I have a Gary Fong by default because the collapsible one I bought broke and I had to exchange it for something to get my money back.
    However, despite the exorbitant price, it doesn't work any better than the one my husband made for me for free from a juice bottle wrapped in a sheet of polystyrene type foam.
    I think you should have a "home-made" option in the poll.

    If you can just choose maybe based on the closest fit with the type of the diffuser without getting too carried away with the brandm whether home made or not :-)

    I have some cheapy one off ebay but found that when bouncing , I just end up taking it off anyway because it ended up leaking light on to the subject directly.
    before that , a rubber band and some wrapping tissue paper ;P

    I have a mini softbox but tend only to use it when there's no option to bounce.

    On camera, I dont use one. Get in the way too much, unless it's the Stofen style, but then I find they don't do much other than fall off all the time.

    Off camera, got a couple of brollies.
