    What flash do you have? Most come with a diffuser. Didn't your's or are you just asking in general?

    I made one for a whole $3. At Home Depot in the gutter department they have these little plastic connectors. I bought one of those and cut out a t-shirt to tape over it. It fits fairly snug but not the greates but then I wont be jumping up and down with it on. Works great.

    The 430 does not come with a diffuser.

    Flash accesories are not miracle products...some of them work well in some situations and not so well in other situation. The one thing that will help you in all situations is a good knowledge of how flash & your camera works.

    You certainly don't need something like that.

    I'm just starting to use it, but I love my Lumiquest softbox. For great examples of work done with one, look at Daan's macros (danoe) here on TPF.

    I have one of these:
    [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Opteka-Universal-Diffuser-Olympus-External/dp/B0017U0WM8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1220058769&sr=8-1[/ame]

    Works well, and amazon is a reliable place to shop online. The nice thing is that it folds flat and fits in the camera bag, so I always have it with me.
