I'll take one. Recently bought a knock-off wanna-be. It doesn't quite fit my 420ex - had to use velcro to make it stay on and results are just not what I'd hoped. Wasted $20.

I got mine 2 days ago - very pleased with the reults but... $50??? Oh well, I guess it just wouldn't work as well if I only paid $20.

Wow- I am impressed. I dont know why I have never heard of it before now! I have a mini soft-box as well as an Omnibounce. I don't care for either one of them.

This looks like a much better alternative!

Ugh - the one that fits the 420EX (the P1) is out of stock :(

Fro those who have just received theirs, are you getting the "clear" soft model? I know there is a cloudy soft model on the horizon (the one crabappl3 mentioned) but don't think it is supposed to be available publicly (i.e. via his website) until next month, so I've been waiting on that.

I thought the lightsphere II WAS the new one???
02/17/2006 05:03:44 PM · #32
I am sure there are always new ones on the horizon, otherwise business gets stagnant. But just because it is new doesn't make it better....autos anyone? So, at least this version works.....

Anyone interested in doing a favor.
I live in norway and would like to buy a lightsphere. It costs $65 shipping and handling (on TOP off the lightsphere itself) on the gary fong website.. which is CRAZY.

So if someone is allready going to buy one and have it shipped to them in the states... Would you mind buying one for me, and sending it to norway (and thus costing me a LOT less than $65.00 for shipping) I can send you $$ via paypal to pay for the lightsphere.

You could always get one from the place I did......our local Australian distributor.
Not sure what international shipping would be, but try.

Anyone else? :)


Well, now that you mention it and as long as you are ordering - add me in!

Of course - I need a flash to go along with it...probably. ;-)

Doesn't this look like an older version though?

ebay link

There is only 3 on ebay. One is for the 580ex canon, and the other 2 are older versions (i think)

The newer ones are textured inside, so this one must be an older one. There is a brand new version called the Cloud that has just been released, and it is cloudy like this one, but it's also textured on the inside. That's the one that crabappl3 got and has shown some examples from in this thread.

This is the one I was referring to ... is it "generally available" yet? It is supposed to give better diffusion and warmer tones than the clear one.

MK, you took the words right outta my mouth!

So, I guess the important question now is: with the plastic cup thingy attached, will you now look cool?! :D

ordered mine tonight....thanks for the info guys.
02/21/2006 04:48:19 PM · #47
Just ordered one, when I get it I will show some examples of my work with or without it. I am sure from what I have seen so far it is going to be great.

This is the one I got.

Wow! Gary Fong should give DPC kick-backs. I ordered mine last week, should be in tomorrow. How many sales was that since this thread started?
02/21/2006 05:15:03 PM · #49
Mine should be here tomorrow or Thursday! Woo and hoo!!
02/21/2006 05:18:10 PM · #50
Yeah I just orderd mine. If we could have pooled our money I bet we could have got them for 25 a piece. But oh well instead its 50 a piece.
I cant wait to see how good it is.

Peace All!
