So what do you think of the light sphere? Is it what you expected? Would you recommend it?

I have only used the light sphere in my house for about 10 shots so far. I recently had bought a cheap generic defuser for my 580 and I was not happy with the results. It was better than a bare flash, but not that much better because there would be bright reflections in some spots. After using the light shpere I was satisfied right away with the results. You can turn your flash at 90 degrees and the shpere will balance the brightness very well. Even if the flash is pointed straight at the subject, you will not see bright reflections off surfaces. The light sphere cost me about $100 CAD, and I would recommended buying this defuser for any on camera flash usage.
