Diffusion panels are some of the most useful and versatile pieces of equipment one can find in a product photographer’s toolbox. They offer more flexibility and control than softboxes, they come in many sizes, and they’re super easy to transport. Unfortunately, if you’re on a limited budget and find yourself needing a number of them, buying them at retail prices can be a bit over the top ($100 or more a pop!).
