Is this about like the Fong lightspheres? I can't believe the price. What do you all think about it?

Seems to be in the same league as Omnibounce and Lightsphere...a waste of light and battery power whenever there is no ceiling and walls to serve as large apparent light source, at even more of an overinflated price than even the Fong device :eek:

$100? I can only think of about 1,000 better uses for $100. And that's just photography uses.

I can think of 2,000 - and that is regarding what I should buy my pet duck for its birthday.

Ha! Priorities. My pet duck already has everything he needs. And he doesn't like being referred to as 'it'....:lol:

More plastic stuff to make flashes look cooler. I might consider it if they'd called it a FrashRight, though.

"super diffusion" Finally. Someone found out a way to get around the physics of light.

Interesting video. 7 minutes of how to install it but not one shot or an example image. All out of his living room.

$100 is cheap for something that defies the laws of physics. We should get two each.

Before I learned about lighting I would have taken a serious look at this. "Super diffusion" would have probably done it for me, if not for it's price.

This kind of looks like the instrument that my doctor uses when he does nasty things to my body...

That would buy 64.5 pints of wonton soup from my local place. A much tastier way of making flash diffusers.

This Revolutionary new Flash Diffuser is much smaller than most other diffusers, yet it produces a bigger, softer light.

Who taught these people physics?
