              I ran controlled tests against a blank wall, my flash (Metz 58) set on manual, using this dome with the lightsphere universal. There was no detectable increase in the light output using this dome vis-a-vis no dome. My histograms were virtually identical. The dome does affect the quality of light, creating somewhat harsher shadows than with no dome or the white dome, but doesn't deliver more light to the subject.

              Let me start with the Con's of this item:
              1) Made of plastic not metal as it appears on site!
              2) Causes your photo to be underexposed.
              3) Over priced for the quality!

              With practice it should be easy to use and get the proper exposure.

                I honestly expected this to work a lot better than it did. I ended up just turning my strobe downward and using the cover that comes with the Lightshpere when you buy it new, it worked a lot better for the group shots I was taking. The ChromeDome didn't seen to help add anything at all.

                  Let me start by saying that if I "Could" give no stars, I would.... For someone who was so impressed with the lightsphere cloud, I hate to say I am utterly dissappointed with the Chromedome! The first thing that I noticed was that it didn't fit tight on my lightsphere. Upon trying it, it seemed to make little difference, so I tried to do some experiments between my normal dome, and the chromedome. The results... Everyone was almost identical on my histogram? There were even a few that turned out worse with the CD on? When taking portraits with the two on, the CD had significantly more shadows! Trust me when I say that this is a complete waste of [$]!

                    It brightens up peoples faces more than the regular one. I can close down
                    to F8 and it still brightens the room.
