Gary Fong LSC-SM-FC overview

  • 1Description

The Lightsphere Collapsible Fashion & Commercial Lighting Kit from Gary Fong includes the Lightsphere Collapsible with Speed Mount, a Speed Snoot with PowerGrid, a WhiteDome, an AmberDome, a GrayDome, a colored gel kit, an instructional DVD, and a gear bag. This kit is designed to help get you started with modifying the light from an on-camera shoe-mounted flash unit.

The fashion and commercial kit includes the Lightsphere Collapsible for general diffusion of your flash. It also features the Speed Snoot for limiting the spread of light from your flash. Both of these utilize the Speed Mount for quickly attaching and removing accessories via hook-and-loop fasteners. The Lightsphere can also have any of the included domes attached to it.

The WhiteDome provides general diffusion of your light source while the AmberDome provides a warming effect in addition to the general softening of your light source. Additionally, the included GrayDome can be used for color correction. By including the GrayDome in your shot you can use it to balance color in a photo-editing application.

The colored gel kit for the Lightsphere Collapsible features 4 colors: red, green, amber, and blue. Each of these will provide a different look or to provide color balance to the ambient light. Also included in this kit are an instructional DVD featuring tips on using the Lightsphere and a gear bag for carrying your flash modification accessories.

    Gary Fong LSC-SM-FC reviews

    Lightsphere Collapsible Fashion & Commercial Lighting Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 68.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice kit Products seem well made and durable, even says 'Made in USA' on box it came in, maybe it's just that cardboard box ;). So far so good. Really impressed with the snoot and grid so far. Lightsphere pretty nice as well, although there are other ways to get similar results, it is pretty convenient and has a very nice effect though. The whole kit is pretty compact and travels well. A little pricey, but does exactly as it says and I can't complain about the results, and like I said before, build quality is very good.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The videos are misleading somewhat... I cannot recommend this tool yet until some fundemental improvements have been implimented. The Gary Fong device is almost fully functional but it fails in the most basic of ways. It malfunctions in the most fundemental way possible. I realize that this tool has gone through several revisions so why this problem hasn't been revised yet baffles me just as it will baffle you. In spite of the ease of use as depicted in the Gary Fong youtube videos, the dome attachements have no actual way of being gripped in place by the receiving flexible rubber extension which mounts on the flash head. There are no snaps or extentions around the circumfrence of in the rubber mount or any kind of knob-like stub with which to hold the domes into place. Nothing. The domes are apparently designed to be held into place with nothing at all! So then what happens is the domes just fall out! Its very frustrating and annoying. Thank goodness I discovered this before going onto the job site. I emailed Gary Fong customer support about this but they have yet to respond. Sort of a disappointment and I can't really return it since I opened tha package. I was really hoping this would work as I wanted to try the cool things as depicted in the Gary Fong videos. Since they won't respond to my emails, perhaps now they will be so kind as to respond since I have to leave this review. Oh and Gary Fong, when you do finally get the snaps designed into the mounting, please send me one to replace the one which doesn't work. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Results I'd seen Gary Fong's videos taking studio portraits in ugly locations and was fascinated. I tried to duplicate his technique using a small light box with terrible results. Then I got this kit. Beautiful results first try. The attached image was taken outdoors in full sunlight. It's a first effort and the alignment of the light isn't perfect, but not bad for a first try. At least, not bad for me. ;-)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful, pricy The dome creates a large light source for its size. I shot a session of over 700 outdoor photos with it and I was surprised. I just ordered another dome. I haven't used the gells and the amber dome yet. Standard and inexpensive gells will be cheaper but I bought the kit since I wanted it handy and easy to put together. The dome itself doesn't fit securely and easily enough into the reflector but it is good enough. It is a little pricy in my opinion

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must have kit I really like the light-sphere - this is my 4th one - it just acts like a nice softbox - it fills in shadows really well - and has a bit of a warm tone to balance the hard flash light - just the best - the snoot is also great to isolate bad background - just shoot high speed to make the whole scene black - then aim the snoot at the subject - super -

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I've bought a lot of gear and am trying to be much more selective about my purchases, but this kit is amazing. I have a stoffen, flash bender, soft boxes, but the Lightsphere and snoot are just amazing. Also, Gary's two techniques (3 if you count using the gray disc as a Lightroom reference) are spot on. Best technique I've ever tried. His website has amazing support as well. This product has earned my seal of approval!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightsphere Collapsible Fashion & Commer I was asked by a friend of mine to photograph her in NYC and didn't want to pass up the opportunity so I bought the Gary Fong Lightsphere Collapsible Fashion & Commercial Lighting Kit the day before I was that day and the following day I took her to NY. With only a few hours of practice the night before. Much to my surprise the kit was easy to use and figure out, also came with instructional video which was useful as well. Shot during the late afternoon into the evening from Manhattan to Brooklyn. The one thing I didn't like was the small bag, to big to fit in my camera bag but I was able to attach it onto one of the straps. Not sure if there could be a better designed bag but it worked out fine and the Lithosphere produces beautiful light in all conditions. The snoot was easy to use and with a little practice on placement produce a very dramatic light. Love the kit.
