Gary Fong LB-01 overview

  • 1Description

The Gary Fong LightBlade Diffuser softens the light from a shoe-mounted flash. It works as a bounce and shoot-through diffuser for your flash and attaches directly to the flash head through the use of a strap with hook-and-loop fasteners. This reduces glare and minimizes shadows in your final image. Also, the compact size of the LightBlade allows you to easily carry it with you.

    Gary Fong LB-01 reviews

    LB-01 Lightblade Diffuser is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well built but useless This is not what I expected. It is well built but the design leaves a lot to be desired. The diffuser attaches to the narrow side of your flash head. So if your flash head is 2.5 inches x 4 inches it is diffusing the light on the 2.5 inch side. Most of your light goes straight up and is lost. Fine if you have a low white ceiling but if not, or if you are outside that light is lost. That means lower power, wider lens opening, longer recycle times. I'm keeping it only because I plan to attach a 8x10 foam core and turn it into a bounce reflector.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact, not as effective as Lightsphere I bought this as I found traveling with the my trusty Lightsphere to be difficult. However I found that it's effect was minor in comparison to using the Lightsphere. I still had harsh lines on my subject, but I'm continuing to learn how to use it effectively. I just can't get the same results Gary does in his videos. I'd recommend strictly for traveling and taking indoor shots. If you plan to use it outdoors I'd say it's a poor choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for small accessory This works well for portraits, I have shot a few since receiving it. While it is not as effective as the Lightsphere, it is smaller and lighter, which means it will get carried out more. The new attachment method for Fong accessories is far superior to the old one, and I will probably buy a new Lightsphere at some point.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simplicity I really appreciate Fong's side design that allows both horizontal and vertical camera position with on-camera flash.
    Date published: 2015-02-12
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good idea but not general enough The lightblade is a great diffuser, I find that it spreads the light into a natural broad glow. However, it is designed to be attached to a very square housing is needs a flat surface for it's feet to rest upon. I use a Nikon SB-600 and its contours are not designed for the lightblade. I need to use both the Velcro strap and the enclosed rubber band to secure a hold on the flash housing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient solution to a common problem When all you have available is a speed light - or equivalent - this is a competent way of diffusing light. The compact size is a plus, and it's easy to store in a gadget bag or medium-sized pocket. While other products may diffuse light somewhat more effectively, they do not pack or travel as well as the light blade.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Travel Light Modifier I bought this in addition to the lightshpere and shoot especially to be able to slip it into my travel day when weight and space are a problem. It has worked well for me on my trips so far. In most situations it delivers acceptable results, if not as good as the lightsphere.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than the knockoffs Once you've bought the knockoffs and they fail, you learn the hard way. Gary makes a quality product that lasts and performs.
