I received my puffers today, after my successful outing unfortunately :mad:

But I'm :D that I got them 2 days after placing my order on Thursday. Wow, talk about speedy delivery!

Would anyone that uses these with their MT-24EX tell me how you attach them?

Also, how close do you put the puffers in front of the flashes, as close as possible?

Thanks in advance!

Dalantech and Macro Junkie both used hot glue... Good luck! Someone suggested velcro if you want them to be removeable.

For spacing, check the picture on Dalantech's blog:

I just put two little pieces of velcro on either side of the flash head and then two long skinny stripe on the inside of the puffer and there you have it.

I haven't used any tape or glue yet - they fit reasonably securely when attached to their supports, just press onto the flash heads. I might tape though.
