Every photographer is eager to make his or her job easier, and that was the case with photographer Les Tirmenstein when he was looking for a better flash diffuser. Unfortunately his search yielded no results, and that’s when he came up with the FlashPipe.
The FlashPipe — which Tirmenstein turned into a Kickstarter project in order to crowdsource the funding– is a lightweight, collapsible flash diffuser made out of a strong translucent thermoplastic material. It slips easily over your camera’s flash, using a silicone band to stay in place.
