I asked this in the flash section, and got only one reply, so thought I would try here instead. Apologies to the mods if this is seen as spamming.

Can people please measure the business end of their flashgun so I can find an equivalent model to order a diffuser. I have a Soligor 30DA, but can't find a diffuser "suitable for..." and they only say what guns they fit on, rather than the dimensions of the fitting.

Thanks in advance.

I have a Vivitar 285 HV Zoom Thyristor Flash and the business end measures 3 3/8 inches by 2 1/4 inches. Hope this helps. One thing though the flash I have ..the diffusser slides into a slot on the end of the flash and does not fit over the top.

Soligor has been gone for a time now. There are a lot of flashes out there to ask people to measure, from compact speedlights to potato mashers. You might have better luck if you narrow the field by posting the dimensions of your own flash head. That way someone with one of similar dimensions can look at theirs and letyou know if it is the same.

Good point, sorry I posted quickly from work and forgot to mention it:

7cm x 4.4cm

Or

2.8in x 1.7in

Thanks again.

@dawg

That's another good point I didn't think of, thanks, I assumed they all just clipped onto the widest part of the flash head...
