I thought, at first, that this was a diffuser for a ring flash but it is much larger than that. It would not be suitable for my macro work but might have applications for other members:

There have been many of these things over the years, including some DiY versions. They work to a degree but are often big and cumbersome.

I have the Olympus OM system T8 flash, with it beauty dish. It is considerably smaller than the Ebay item but has proved too large for most applications.

I use a Sunpak R16 ring flash or my DIY LED panels.
