My Review of Gary Fong Lightsphere Collapsible – Clear

Great diffusion but still disappointing

3out of 5

Pros: Consistent Output

Cons: Hard to attach Falls off, Bulky

Best Uses: Portraits, Fill Flash

Describe Yourself: Pro Photographer

Pros: It definitely diffuses light well–used it for the first time and was happy with the results–both for crowd photos and close portraits–really diffused the light beautifully BUT the flash was still very bright in people’s faces and I found I was mostly shooting flash toward the ceiling to avoid this. Other Cons: It’s big and bulky, expensive, hard to attach to my Nikon SB-600, seemed very tight once on but still fell off twice when I flipped the direction of the flash, doesn’t collapse partway–only fully up or fully down, takes up a lot of room in my camera bag, makes the flash seem huge and a bit unruly, hard to remove from the flash. 🙂 A dog thought it was a toy and almost bit it while I held my camera at waist height!
