Gain an additional stop or more of power from your Lightsphere with the "Chromedome". It has a reflector panel on the rear to punch more light forward and an open top to throw more direct light into the room. Then the whole half dome reflects bright light into the LS Cloud, increasing the brightness greatly.

I think the concept is good but getting more flash power is pushing it a bit. I didn't gain anymore power using this device than when I didn't use the device. changing my ISO speed during group shots done it for me. But let me make a note about what I didn't do I did not meter the two light out-puts so it may give you more light. I just didn't see it in my pictures.
THE GARY FONG CHROMEDOME IS VERY EASY TO USE AND WILL GIVE YOU A EXTRA f STOP TO PLAY WITH. VERY EASY TO INSTALL AS IT JUST DROPS INTO THE LIGHTSPHERE.
Making photos of groups of people indoors, depending on the distance to the subject and the ceiling, I have been using either the ChromeDome, the white dome that comes with the Lightsphere, or no dome. When I need bit more forward projection of light I am very glad to have the ChromeDome in my bag.
I'm still learning when its best to use the product. Its kind of a niche application in that there are only certain times when I would use the LightSphere, and then there are only certain times when I might need to boost the output. However, it does fit the Lightsphere well and I believe it does increase the flash through the sphere. I like the Lightsphere itself quite a lot, for portraits.
