  2. You can't argue with the results, although you can argue the price - I think that's why so many folks have fashioned their own out of other materials rather than making Gary any wealthier.

    It's a little big and that makes it a pain in the butt. However, it does produce very nice results and that's why I always use mine. I have the old version, clear.
  4. I use both the Lightshpere II and The Whale Tail Reporter. I prefer the Whale Tail, as it's a bit smaller, and there are more lighting options with it.

    If you are serious about getting one, you may consider getting it from B&H, rather than GF, as B&H is a lot easier to deal with on returns. It's not that I had a problem with GF, however B&H has a store policy of full refund within two weeks of most purchases.

    Like they Said good result but heavy I use FLIP-it. Much better send me your address I will send you mine for free just pay me shipping $8
  8. Got one of Gary Fong....It's alright
  9. Use the Demb. The Fong is a good tip jar.
  10. I have a third pary "lambancy" dome it works great. I can shoot directly to the subject without blowing them out.
    I paid $19.99 plus shipping and it came with three other color gels. Look it up on the big auction site that everyone knows about.:biggrin:
  11. I'll second Arcinio's suggestion. I bought a lambency diffuser with gels for 6bucks plus 15 shipping out of Hong Kong. Works well but is heavy and on a SB600 wants to pull the flash head down when you have it tilted at 45 degrees.


  12. Try Googling abetterbouncecard and make a nice card for a buck.

    I have a Fong and use it 30 percent of the time when using flash - if the ceilings are low enough. It produces a very soft light and is a great conversation starter.
