If by shooting outdoors you mean using the flash for fill flash, and they're using it on-camera, what difference does it make? Probably a small loss of power, maybe -1/3 or -2/3 stop less than a bare flash, right? It doesn't drastically increase the size of the light so what effect does it have on quality of light?
So the result is having to use higher flash power, resulting in slower recycle time and higher power consumption?
>>2881565 You are right. And when you are indoors less light is directed forward directly to the subject because some of it is instead directed to the sides, over and above the flash. From there on it bounces onto your subject. This means the fill light is spread out more throughout your scene.
The benefit it grants is small, but the drawbacks don't really hurt, so everyone just leaves it on the flash at all times. OPs raging is not justified.
>>2881606 >It makes the light softer and prevents ugly hard shadows. how soft the light is depends on how wide the light source area is, and the light source area isn't made wider by that piece of plastic a foldable diffuser would work instead, like >>2881621 mentioned, because the diffuser does make the source wider
