How did you mate your 550 to the Pringles can? My 550 EX arrived today, but it's just a few hairs large for the pringles can even when it's flattened out. I'm sure I can make some sort of step-down adapter to make it work but I'm just wondering what your solution was.

Wayne, I had to cut some vertical notches into the end of the pringles can so that it would flare out a bit. Then I used gorilla tape to form it up and then rolled a single layer over the end to make it a nice and snug fit. Let me know if this is not clear...

I was just coming back to say I found where you already explained it, but you beat me to it! Thanks, that'll work.
