Make a flash diffusor from an old film canister.

A stroke of genius, we dare say. After about five minutes’ work with ruler, pencil and scalpel we have our own diffusor for the Lumix DMC-FZ20. The only little hitch was that the pop-up flash on the Lumix is so wide we had to cut the canister from opening all the way to the bottom. This meant that the lid would not stay on by it self, but a little superglue fixed that. The difference between using the naked flash and the diffused one is easy to see. Too bright parts and dark shadows are softened, and the pictures appear much more balanced. Now all we have to do is remember to bring the little thing.brbr
