    I know this isnt the nicest flash modifier, it came with my flash- I am just trying to figure out the purpose of these flaps that velcro on either side of it.

    Any idea why or when I would want to have such a feature?

    I mean, it doesn't seem to block anything, it only opens a diffusion panel towards the ceiling or floor in the forward position?

    I have never even noticed it before and I am stumped!

    They are described as "Roll-Up Windows for Fill Light, Bounce Control"

    Makes sense. Probably don't do much, but can't hurt...
