    Interesting. I haven't even put the flash on my C3 yet. Just figured it's not worth the effort.

    My first attempt at this

    I had seen that too. My first attempt at it came out like this...

    DIY Sony NEX 5n Flash Bounce Reflector - a set on Flickr

    I'm still working on a V2 - Haven't had any spare time. But it needs to be taller since I was getting blow-back in my face when I hold the camera low. I also bought some foil tape, which was easier to work with than lining it with aluminum foil, albeit more expensive. I did work out a way to make it collapsible - Doubled the bottom, folded it back under itself, glued the front and rear edges leaving a gap to put the tabs in.
