  • 1Description

The Lightsphere Collapsible Wedding & Event Lighting Kit from Gary Fong includes the Lightsphere Collapsible with Speed Mount, a WhiteDome, an AmberDome, a GrayDome, 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 wedding & event kit includes the Lightsphere Collapsible for general diffusion of your flash. It also features the Speed Mount for quickly attaching and removing the Lightsphere 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.

Also included in this kit are an instructional DVD featuring tips on using the Lightshere and a gear bag for carrying your flash modification accessories.

    Gary Fong LSC-SM-WE reviews

    Lightsphere Collapsible Wedding & Event Lighting Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as Useful as I'd Thought The product seems to be well made and does as it is advertised to do, but I've found that it is not as useful as I had originally thought it would be for my applications. All of the situations in which I've found it would be useful, I've had plentiful surfaces off of which I could bounce the flash to achieve a better, non-direct flash look. Considering the price and how infrequently I've come to use this, I regret purchasing it for myself. That being said, if you know that your shooting situation will require you to use this, and that you will not have a white or neutrally colored surface off of which to bounce an on camera speedlight, you may find it useful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, crazy price I did a huge amount of research before pulling the trigger on Gary Fong's Lightsphere Collapsible Wedding & Event Lighting Kit. I even borrowed a friend's older Lightsphere Universal and took it for a test drive. On the whole, I really like the Lightsphere Collapsible (except for the price), and I have only a few caveats. First, the soft nature of the Lightsphere Collapsible itself is definitely a plus for storage. The universal mount with the speed strap also works great (much better than the older mounting systems), but I find that the softness lets the Lightsphere sag/droop down a bit when it's pointed in a direction other than straight up. Not a deal breaker, but worth noting. My other minor gripe is that the fins (which the speed strap cinches around to secure it to the flash) extend down a bit too far and get in the way of my SB-800 when pointing it at a 90-degree angle after rotating it 90 degrees - the little bit of fin makes it so that the head doesn't lock into position. Also not a deal breaker, but a slight inconvenience when shooting in portrait orientation and pointing the flash straight up (flash head at 90 degrees). Performance-wise, the Lightspehere Collapsible provides a soft, even light that is great for filling a smaller room if you're only using one on-camera flash. The diffuser domes work well, and the amber dome makes more of a difference than you'd expect. The bag is kind of a joke since the items in this kit take up approximately 1/3 of the bag's space when the Lightsphere is fully collapsed. Maybe it would be useful for the kit that includes Gary's snoot and the gels, but for this kit it's just another one of his marketing gimmicks. On the whole, I really dig the kit. It's thoughtfully designed and made well. It gives great lighting results in the situations for which it is intended. The biggest problem I have with it is the price. I get that all products take time and money to design, and Gary does put plenty of time into his mostly-great YouTube channel. But this kit is really just three pieces of injection-molded plastic, one piece of injection-molded opaque rubber, and a strip of velcro. There's no reason it should cost as much as it does, hence my inability to rate it five stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect but only for certain situations I have a weekly assignment in a venue with walls painted glossy yellow and a metal tile ceiling. The diffuser with the white dome is a great tool that greatly helps me avoid an ugly color Cast in my photos. The collapsible diffuser fits perfectly on my Nikon SB-910. Even with using this kit on a weekly basis I find it a challenge to get the white dome to mount in the collapsible diffuser. For this weekly assignment, the collapsible diffuser with the white dome is something I absolutely rely on and I am very happy with it. That said, I have not found this kit to be something I use beyond this one particular job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product I purchased this kit to shoot an upcoming wedding, and since, I've used it on several portrait sessions. The light sphere leave no harsh shadows on the subject and fills in shadows nicely. I love the interchangeable domes, especially the amber dome. It gives things a warm glow. The grey dome also doubles as a white balancer, so that's a plus! I'm more than satisfied with this product, and I can't wait to use it on my upcoming wedding clients!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best flash accessory ever! used this for the first time at a large gathering, high cielings, and horrible fluorescent lighting. it really spread the light evenly out, and gave no cast shadow effects, go to his website to see the difference between his product and the others, I am very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using Wedding/Event Lighting Kit for a 100th birthday party I used my newly arrived Fong Lighsphere to photograph a 100th birthday party . Well balanced shots of groups & individuals in a wide variety of settings from indoor with light/low ceiling (8') to large dining room (high ceiling with much ambient light) to large outdoor 'static group shot.' Would prefer wider flash coverage outdoors but it did fill-in OK using Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Canon 600EX RT flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is awesome! I bought the Gary Font Light sphere after meeting another photographer who introduced me to it. The light sphere creates a very even lighting effect when using the clear/white dome and a very warm effect when using the amber dome. His videos show how to use them and got my creative ideas flowing. The product is very durable and sure to last a long time. Overall a great product.
