What is the difference between a 1-stop and 2-stop diffuser?

The thickness of diffusion material determines the level of softness of your light output. Our 1-stop diffuser has half of the diffusing power as our 2-stop diffuser.

Our 1-stop diffuser is our most popular diffuser and is great for softening overhead lighting or studio light sources when shooting outdoors. Our 2-stop diffuser is great for softening powerful light sources or particularly harsh sunlight. Due to the thickness of the 2-stop diffuser material, our 2-stop diffuser can also act as a subtle reflector for bouncing light onto your subject.
