That might depend on what source of light you use. If the light itself was already diffuse, it wouldn't need much of a diffuser. You normally get that diffuse light if you move the light source away from your object. Or, if you put it at an angle to your object...
It will be LED based, I think we can all agree on that, but not all LED's are created equal...
