I need to get a flash mount for my Canon 20 D and Speedlite 550. I am getting way to may red eyes when I shoot sports and other photos. I shoot a lot of football and basketball games. Please suggest a flash mount I should buy to reduce my problem. Am also looking for suggestions on an external battery for my flash.

Thanks

I got a device, just yesterday, that is supposed to "get the red out". It is called the "OmniBounce" for the 580EX, by Sto-Fen.

This effective diffuser can be just what you are looking for. The model you want for you 550EX, in fact, is OM-EZ.

Sto-Fen Products (http://www.stofen.com/) has the follow on their website:

Canon 550EX

Product Price
Omni-Bounce OM-EZ 19.95
Two-Way Bounce Unit TW-UNI 19.95
Green and Gold Set OC-EZSET 29.95
Green Omni-Bounce OC-EZGR 17.95
Gold Omni-Bounce OC-EZGL 17.95
Two-Way Adapter TW-UNIA 3.00

They make these things for just about any electronic flash, even the older stuff. It may be one of the best portable diffusers available. Sure is small enough. :D
