See the buying power of DPC as a collective could be amazing if we could get it together.

I liked the one so much I got last week, I ordered one for my other flash which is a different size. I tried it out at work with 40 foot ceiling and works great.

Just checked tracking - mine is due today too.....where's that f'ing UPS guy????
02/23/2006 04:24:56 PM · #64

I ordered last wednesday and the fedex tracking site said it was delivered to my address on friday... well, it's not here. I've been in contact with fedex for the last three days trying to track down the delivery guy to figure out where it was and who the mysterious person is that signed for it. They have said twice they were going to call back the same day and haven't... If you can request UPS from Wong's site, do it. Fedex is on my black list right now...

My ebola recovery made me forget to convey my "Lightsphere Opening Story":

So I get all my toys shipped to work (much easier in to do in Nowheresville USA). I open my two boxes of toys.

Cow-orker is asking "So whatdjya get? Whatdjy get?!?" because gifts from the UPS man don't happen often and it is always a time of excitment and joy - much like Christmas, only different.

So she asks and I obligingly hold up the Lightsphere.

Her reaction:
"Gross!!! What the *hell* is that thing?!?! What *is* that?!!?"

So I hand it to her.

Thinking it's new age tupperware she says, "That's the dumbest thing I've ever seen, that top is stupid - you lose 1/2 the space inside."

I explain.

Cow-orker #2, upon seeing the lightsphere on my desk
"What the *@#$ is that thing?!?! Gross!!!"

I explain.

Lesson: The lightsphere is not to be shown out of context.

Know why everyone is smiling? Because one of my aunts said "Dont Point that wierd thing at me!" and I spent much to much time trying to reassure everyone that it wasnt explosive, and that the flash was much more aggrivating without it.

So, being the troglodytes that we are my family likes to hold anniversary parties in caves. The ceilings were VERY low, the floors were uneven, the walls and beams were dark, the room was insanely cramped and there was a really bright line of picture windows off to the right in this picture. The lightsphere held up ok I think. Ignore my ugly positioning of people, they arranged themselves and family never takes the photographer seriously when shes one of thier own...

I use the older, hard plastic version. Has anyone compared it with the clear vinyl one? I assume that's the one you are all getting.
