I'm looking at buying a light modifier for my Yongnuo YN-568EX flash with the aim being to bounce the greatest portion of light off a wall and/or ceiling indoors to get some soft, sculptured form on faces. I will be using the flash mounting on top my camera and don't want to be fiddling about with any other accessory for quick family snapshots other than a warming filter.

I'm currently leaning towards the ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender (Large) Positionable Reflector with the Diffusion Panel. The only downside I see in this setup is difficulty in achieving round highlights in the eyes (like a ring flash or a circular, mini softbox would achieve).

I've looked at Sto-Fen diffusers, Gary Fong's Tupperware products and some others, but I keep coming back to the Rogue FlashBender as being the best compromise. At this stage, the only other product that I think warrants further consideration for its versatility is the Spinlight 360 EXTREME Modular System.

I've not tested any of these products and so I'd love to learn from your experience ... which flash light modifier do you use and why?
