    When I had my original 3, I had a ping pong ball and reflective bounce card mods that were very effective.

    Now that I have my F3 and the built in flash, I tried the ping pong ball with great results.

    Additionally one of the nice functions is to be able to push up the flash for a bounce effect.

    Here are the results. Shot from about three feet away.

    Straight on, no flash. (Sorry about the bad Focusing)

    The only negative I can comment about my flash bouncer is that the way it clips into the flash has caused some scrathces to the Nex's flash unit
