    Works great!

    I guess you could call it a pricey piece of plastic, but it works great indoors in super warm rooms. It changes the color of your flash making heavy flash shots look nicer.

    Bought this after watching a demo by Fong. Used it at a wedding with flash in shade, hoping to warm fleshtones, and found it to be too yellow. Made my fair bride look a little jaundiced, so I went back to the standard dome.

            Great for indoor events!

            from Long Beach, CA

            Comments about Gary Fong AmberDome:

            The amber dome is definitely a useful add-on to your lightsphere when shooting indoors, where ambient light is present.

            I'd recommend it especially for weddings where ceiling lights and chandeliers are typically warmer.

                Purchased this with the Gary Fong collapsible dome. It's a little pricy, but it does what it's supposed to do. A little fiddly to fit onto the dome though, so a little patiences goes a long way.

                              IF you use the lightsphereII use must use this also..Gives great lighting and warmth, when used correctly.

                              This diffuser is a little better than the one comes with SC800. I wish it came with more instructions about how to mount domes for different situations.

                                I use it with both the Universal Cloud Lightsphere and the Collapsible Lightsphere - and it works as advertised. Warms the light just enough.
