Flash Diffuser/bouncer LEGO Mount Hack

Introduction: Flash Diffuser/bouncer LEGO Mount Hack

This is my first instructable and I hope it will be helpfull :)...

I bought this cheap but great flash diffuser/bouncer from ebay but I didn't noticed that my DSLR is not supported.

As can be seen on the pictures my Canon EOS 1100D has a little switch which disables built-in flash when I insert diffuser/bouncer mount into hot-shoe.

It was expensive for me at the moment to buy a camera flash so I found a way to mount flash diffuser/bouncer with a little LEGO brick.

So, here are the steps:

Step 1: Find Appropriate LEGO

I found these little LEGO bricks which can perfectly and tightly fit into hot-shoe as can be seen in the pictures...

Step 2: Gluing

Glue the LEGO brick to the end of the diffuser/bouncer leg (see the pictures) and wait for about an hour at least for glue to work...

Step 3: Voilà!

Here is the final result... The diffuser/bouncer stays perfectly :)

Now You can enjoy indoor low light photography on the budget.

    Great fix! Do the LEGO pieces hold the diffuser securely enough for hand-held shooting?

    Yes, You can freely shoot by hand and it's not moving. You can make it even more secure with this type of LEGO brick:
