The biggest problems I see are that it will reduce the distance your flash reaches and probably reduce battery life (because the flash will have to be brighter to cover the area desired.) The flash on most cameras of that class is already fairly weak, and this will only make it weaker. But if you subjects are close enough, it should work.

It is correct... the concept of softening the flash in the way they seem to do it is not knew. Its a proven concept.

How well it work in this implementation with that hardware is unknown (to me.) I fear that it won't work too well in the situations most would want to use it. The subject will have to be just too close. But maybe not.

The idea is already discussed (I think in the first or second generation of Steve forum) it`s great for close distance .

Myself, I have a piece of plastic , cut from a mineral water bottle, I use on my D7i for close distance flash, work great, and it`s cheap to do too.
