We all love our fancy lighting gear, but sometimes it's great to have a simple, cheap gadget in your pocket that can turn your built-in pop flash into great light.

Here's a video review I did of a new gadget that I love for this:

Hope you find it helpful,

Very cool of you Phil to pay respect to the inventor. I would be interested in something like this if I wasn't on the verge of buying a 430EXII. I've used a similar tactic by using white business cards but they never fit just right and became more of a pain. But they have saved me when I've had to use my pop up flash indoors.

Good video review.

I like the versatility of this similar product that allows you to bounce off the ceiling in portrait as well as landscape: http://www.lightscoop.​com/lightscoop_deluxe_​info.html (external link)
