The Gary Fong Lightsphere Universal Inverted Dome Starter Kit is based on the large, round, soft and flexible Lightsphere diffuser that slips over the front of any standard shoe mount or handle mount flash unit. Its flexible design is compatible with any external flash unit.
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 inside of the Lightsphere is completely textured to make the light dispersion even "softer" than it would be otherwise. As a result, the material is more translucent, keeping the unit from losing a lot of light while actually increasing the diffusion and softness of light. This Universal type fits almost virtually any shoe or handle mount flash unit. Its innovative mounting design provides a secure and adjustable grip to any flash head, from a Nikon SB-600 to a Metz 45 handle mount. It is especially ideal for vertical flash shots where the flash coverage is still similar to horizontal shots, due to the large rounded shape of the diffuser. It minimizes the need for a flash-flip bracket and also easily fits into a camera bag.
The kit includes two flexible Lightsphere diffusers that slip over the front of any standard shoe-mount or handle-mount flash unit. The “half cloud” unit provides some diffusion with minimal light loss, and the “frosted” unit provides a stronger diffusion for portraits. An opaque color has been added to the inside of the Cloud version, and this "frosted" version creates an even softer effect, which makes it ideal for close-ups, portraits, and event photography.
