Product Description

This is a flexible, totally CLEAR VINYL diffuser with an internal snap on dome. Designed to fit a select group of flashes (see list of flashes below) The inside of the Lightsphere is completely textured to make the light dispersion even more "soft" than it would be otherwise! Clear vinyl cuts down on light loss and also gives it a more sleek professional appearance while still delivering the soft diffuse light you demand. This version is designed for fast action, tight spaces and crowds. The new vinyl construction ensures a snug fit on a wide range of flash heads without the need for adaptors. Everything you asked for is finally here! The inverted dome allows you to softly diffuse direct light with a large, soft source without creating flare on the front of your lens. The P3 Lightsphere II fits the following flashes Canon 380EX, 420EZ & 430EX Metz 36AF, 40MZ2, 54MZ-3, 54MZ-4,. Minolta 3500xi, 5200, 5400 Nikon SB-24, 25, 26, 28, 28DX Olympus FL40, FL50, G40 Sunpak MZ440AF, 355AF, 266D, Vivitar 728AF, 836-840AF The LightSphere System is also available in non see through Cloud Version What are the differences between the Lightsphere CLEAR and CLOUD? Which one is better for my situation? Which Lightsphere is best for any given setting is as much a matter of photographer preference and loyalty as anything. Many pros carry both styles in their gear bag for varying lighting sit

Customer Reviews:
  • Works exactly as claimed
    After comparing flash diffusers, I decided on the Lightsphere, and couldn't be happier. It works as well or better than claimed, and I am almost shocked at the improvement of my flash shots.

    Mo only complaints (causing the loss of a star) are the price (awful expensive for a couple pieces of plastic!), and the method of fitment is not all that secure - it will fall off too easily. Rather than the widely spaced ribbing on the attachment point, a smoother surface would've provided more "grip" to the flash head.

    For all that, though, I am glad I got it!...more info
  • not really worth to bother
    I own many diffusion systems, as i had to go the hard way and learn from my own mistakes.

    LightSphere is not a bad thing per say. Specially if you careful and get size of that actually fits your flash unit. But...
    - its falling down at awkward moments
    - its adding extra weight to your flash unit. So if you got cheap dSLR (or compact) made out of plastic - consider that , as this contraption putting some serious stress on the hot shoe mount
    - its blocking AF lights on your flash, unless you pointing thingy straight up, or turn it to sides.
    - its not compact. At all.
    - it looks really really weird. I cant even think on how many times i had to explain what the heck this thing is, that i am putting on :)
    - its not "one size fits all" so if you got few different flash units, like i do, you will need one for each..

    Personally - i placed mine back on shelf, after using it for a while, and went with Lumixquest Pro System. Its light, portable, it fits all the sizes, and it gives much more control and thus - better results....more info
  • Nice, but very hard to put on
    Almost impossible to put on the Canon 580EX flash. I do like his videos and seems a sincere guy, but my wife could not put it on and it was only thanks to lots of gym that I managed to stretch the plastic far enough to get it on....more info
