How can I make a homemade flash diffuser for a fuji finepix s8100? Answered

Keep in mind the flash is a pop-up and there is no hot shoe.

Use a small piece of ripstop nylon over your flash unit to diffuse and soften the light.


I cut a 3-inch square piece of RipStop nylon, and attached pieces of self-stick velcro to it and to the flash. The fabric can be quickly added to the flash to diffuse and soften the light a little bit and is easily removed. I used a candle to carefully melt the edges of the cut fabric to keep the threads from unraveling.Use a plastic rubbing alcohol bottle, cut the top off, and secure to flash head with strips of velcro.

Cut a slit into the side of a white film pot, slide it over the flash and then put the cap onto the other end.

Start with something like this for an idea.  Now figure out an attachment other than the hot shoe.

I don't have your kind of camera to work with so I can't do that part for you.
