I was just introduced to Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop, a clever little attachment for digital SLRs that bounces the light from the on-camera flash upward so that photos you take with the flash don’t look all blown out. [via]

Most on-camera flashes these days are pretty decent and are actually quite powerful if tweaked correctly, and I imagine that this $35 add-on does wonders at a fraction of the price of an actual hot-shoe flash attachment.

Most of the images in the Flickr Lightscoop photo pool are pretty much on par with the quality of images I would expect from a much more expensive flash attachment.
