About Gary Fong

This is a flexible, Opaque Vinyl diffuser with an internal snap on dome. Designed to fit a universal group of flashes
The inside of the Lightsphere is completely textured to make the light dispersion even more "soft" than it would be otherwise!

The new cloud colored universal Lightsphere provides 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 photographers and wedding photojournalists. This soft flattering light is the same light you are accustomed to finding in your studio when using a softbox, Calumet panel or large umbrella. If you shoot outside of your studio - you will love the NEW universal Cloud Lightsphere.

The inverted dome allows you to softly diffuse. You will love the NEW universal Cloud soft source without creating flare on the front of your lens.

ChromeDome
The ChromeDome Increases light output dramatically while still keeping the diffusion properties. You will have up to double the power and efficiency, but the look will be identical. The ChromeDome was made for the Lightsphere Cloud Model only - it does not work effectively with the clear model.

There is an open top to allow clear light to hit the ceiling. A chrome-plated kicker panel blows light forward, while the inverted bowl blasts more light into the bowl, brightening the bowl.

Amberdome
Instantly warms up your images in coll situations for example Outdoors at dusk or early morning Outdoors in Open Shade (set camera to auto-white balance) Interiors with tungsten lighting (set camera WB to "tungsten" setting) Shooting sunsets with the sun at your subject's back.

Lightsphere Tutorial Video
The Instructional DVD demonstrates how to achieve the best results from your new Lightsphere II!
Real Photo Shoots with Gary Fong and [b]ecker in various lighting situations!!
Also includes software Demos and a preview of Gary's "Getting Rich" DVD set.

creates great even lighting

By

from Astoria Oregon  -  Semi-pro Photographer

this is a great addition to my gear. They give smooth overall lighting and I am finding them especially useful for doing product shots. I was a bit disapointed to see that they do not calapse like in the video I watched so they are a bit bulky but definitely worth the space.

A set of instructions for this would be nice in order to help learn how to use it properly.

Lightsphere was just what I needed!

By

from Joshua, Texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I was seeking a flash diffuser to use for a friend's wedding that took place entirely in the dark... from the wedding being outdoors with Christmas lights at night to the reception indoors with very low-lighting. Gary Fong's Lightsphere worked fabulously. It was exactly what I was looking for. The photos turned out well overall and I was impressed with how well it worked for me. I would highly recommend this product for its use and because the price is well worth the purchase!

Great product to bring out the natural light in a photograph

I love this product!

By

from Saugerties, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I love this product. I received this as a gift and it had all three domes. The amber dome as such a nice warmth to every photo. I love how it brightens and evens out the lighting/tone in my photos.

A great investment!

By

It does what it's supposed to do and exceeds expectations.

I would buy this product again.

By

from Grant Park, IL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Fairly compact and easy to use. I love the affect. It's like having a studio light without the bulk.

Softens your flashes output nicely

By

from Santa Clara, CA  -  Semi-Professional

The Lightsphere really softens the light from your hot-shoe mounted flash. It turns the light from a point source to a nicer, softenend light. I've even used it for adding fill to some outdoor, close-in landscape shots. I'm not sure it will ever replace a studio light set up, but it does work well for home & semi-pro use.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  is this compatible with the canon 600 EX/RT flash?
HORACE H  I have only used this item with the 580 Ex flash. But since it does not require precise fit (it is attached via a Velcro strap) it should easily fit the 600 Ex.
Jenifer T  Will this work with a cannon rebel xs eos 1000D?
VARUM K  This product is universal mounting that will fit most of the D-S-L-R external flash gun, not a popup on camera.
