About Gary Fong

All other diffusers "point" the light forward like a flashlight. Gary Fong's Lightsphere is the only diffuser that lights up the entire room, softening your images tremendously.

The Universal Lightsphere Half Cloud with Inverted Dome is a a flexible, totally CLEAR VINYL diffuser with internal snap on dome... The only one like it anywhere! The Inverted Dome is included with every Lightsphere. This large diffuser is light, flexible and soft. It fits easily into your camera bag. But that's not why it is so amazing. The inside of the Lightsphere is completely textured to make the light dispersion even more "soft" than it would be otherwise!

And because of this design, we were able to make the material more translucent, keeping the unit from losing a lot of light while actually increasing the diffusion and softness of light.

Clear vinyl cuts down on light loss and also gives it a more sleek professional appearance while still delivering the soft diffuse light you demand. This version is designed for fast action, tight spaces and crowds. The new vinyl construction ensures a snug fit on a uiniversal range of flash heads without the need for adaptors. Everything you asked for is finally here!

Use the Universal cloud colored photojournalist to create the warmest softest light possible from your on-camera flash. Studio quality light, that you can carry in your gear bag, makes the Universal Cloud Lightsphere the perfect diffuser for portrait photographersand wedding photojournalists.
< br> This soft flattering light is the same light you are accustomed to finding in your studio when using a softbox, or large umbrella. If you shoot outside of your studio - you will love the Universal Cloud Lightsphere.

Great Product


from Castleton ny  -  Pro Photographer

Great light diffuser. either in the straight up position or interesting on camera pointing at subjects at night.


Great Flexibility in Flash Diffusion


from Minnesota  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have several Gary Fong products in my flash diffusion bag of tools, including the Studio Whale Tail kit, Puffer and now the Universal Lightsphere Starter System. This system, when used correctly (see his videos on his web site) yields great results, is flexible in its applications and is very flattering for skin tones. Great softer light option for hot shoe flash units.




from Bridgeport, CT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This product works! It works as advertised and I don't think I can go back to take pictures without it! I just love the application of the soft light both from the clear and the cloud. My portraits look so much better now. My only gripe was that the website promised a tutorial DVD and it was not included in the box. I called Adorama and they promised to send the DVD but so far it has been a no show.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Tracy H  Has anyone used these with a canon 580EX II?
OWEN B  NO - I use it with the Nikon SB900 and SB800, on the D300 and D7000 bodies - but if you are using TTL metering, or even automatic or manual (if you know what you're doing), I can't see you having a problem with it - I am really happy with the product. It does what they say it does, and does it well
Shopper  will this work with the sb-700 by nikon?
ROLAND P  The system is designed to work with most external flashes, Nikon, Canon or generic. How it does this is through a rubber band that fits around the flash head. The plastic bottom of the Fong head then slips over the flash and grips to the rubber band. Finally, there is a velcro strap which tightens the Fong unit to the flash head. It's very simple and attaches quite tightly.
Shopper  will it work on canon speedlite 580?
JOSE S  Yes, will work on Canon 580ex (I and II and also on 420ex and 430ex) Have this flash, using 2 half clouds on the slaves and a cloud on the master (580ex). Never received a tutorial DVD. It works as advertised. Yes, I would recommend this kit.
