The two filters that came with the sb800: How on earth do you mount them on the flash head?? They have an arrow shape that one would assume slides into one of the slots where the white card and diffusion panel go, but they don't bend enough to cover the flash head! And even if they did, the gel area is too large to "tuck" into the shape of the flash head to keep it there securely.

The only time it works is by slapping it on the flash head and by virtue of static electricity, it will stay on. But that is a very tenuous position. It comes off with any sort of slight movement.

This is weird and I can't find documentation anywhere. Who has an answer?
