D700 Flash Diffuser for on-camera flash? Do they work?
i've been searching for a diffuser for the on-camera flash of my D700.
the most obvious unit available is the Puffer (gary fong). may i ask if anyone has experience using it with the D700?
before springing for an SB-900 or the diminutive SB-400 (so light/small!), i thought that i'd try a diffuser both for the convenience/weight factor, as well as to defer buying a flash unit until such time as i really feel the need for one, or until i have a strong feeling as to whether i'd want the SB-900 or 800 or 600. as of now, i'd want the 900 but dislike the bulk/weight. so i thought that it'd be wise to hold off until i do further research to firm up my own feelings about them.
i may be requested to take pictures of a friend's 3-year old son's birthday party in 2 weeks. as such, i thought that it would be good to have a diffuser.
may i know:
- how well/not well does the gary fong Puffer work? Specifically on the D700, does it fit/work well? i visited his site and saw his short video. is it stable on the D700? results?
- alternatives? i've searched but found few that even looked like they would work properly. there were some but they were remarkably rinky dink-looking.
thanks in advance.

As hinted at in another thread, you really will get more (and more varied) replies by posting your questions in the appropriate Forum. This question, for example, would be better off in our Speedlights & Lighting Forum.

Brian: thx for reminding me that there are so many more specific fora.
i'm totally new to this site and am frankly surprised by the number of participants, good advice, and the number of various rather specific fora.
i'll pay more attention from now on. thx.
