    Great addition

    Overall the pictures look better when using the Lightsphere than just the flash. Skin tones look more natural and with fewer blown highlights.

    I've lost two of these this season. At 10 bucks a pop it's getting a little pricey and inconvenient to keep replacing them. I take part of the blame, but I would think they could design a plastic dome so it attached more securely to the lightsphere. I'm considering discontinuing use of the lightsphere all together based on this inconvenience. I don't think I've ever had any problems with my Stofen diffuser.

    Replacement for lost part

    By Mofoto

    from Detroit

    Comments about Gary Fong Inverted Dome for Lightspere II:

    I would love it if this thing stayed on better. I'm not too thrilled about paying $[$]to replace something that should be constructed to stay put. If this one falls off and is lost I'm going to have to switch to a different diffuser.

        I recently purchased an Inverted Dome- Replacement for Lightsphere and I really enjoyed it. It was very comfortable to use because it made my pictures better quality and the light was amazing. I use it all the time when taking pictures because it guarantees me great quality pictures with great lighting. I loved it and there was nothing that I did not like about it. I recommend it to all my photographer friends.

            Comments about Gary Fong Inverted Dome for Lightspere II:

            I've always disliked the "deer-in-the-headlights" look of even accessory flashes. The Lightsphere does a decent job of softening the effects from the flash. On a recent shoot at a local event, I had to attach my half cloud Lightsphere to my camera bag (since it wouldn't go inside). The next time I wanted to use it, the dome was gone. This time, I will drill a small hole or 2 in the dome and body and use some wire to attach the dome!

            The lightsphere gives a beautiful quality light when photographing rapid events. However, the dome is just not secure and I often have to take it off all together because it is so embarrassing to have it fall off continually.

            Gary Fong Lightspere is a great add on to any external flash. It eliminate the dark shadows and fill in/soften the light. The only issue I had with mine is the inverted dome will tend to fall off every now and then.
