I have used tissues, napkins, pieces of "cloudy" plastic with varying degrees of results. Some of the plastic lids on resealable containers can be cut and shaped quite easily. Like a coffee can top. Attaching the things bothersome.

Seeing how much Panasonic likes to sell exorbitantly priced accessories, it's a wonder they don't make a dedicated clip-on diffuser for the FZ...

2ndly, I've also wondered for a while why cameras manufacturers don't implement a bounce-flash function - I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to add a hinge mechanism to the flash, so that once popped up, it could be optionally flipped back to point at the roof. A sensor could be incorporated into the hinge to tell the processor what's going on. Patent anyone...
