The Gary Fong Lightsphere Universal Basic Kit is based on the large, round, soft and flexible Lightsphere diffuser that slips over the front of any standard shoe mount flash unit. 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.
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.
The included WhiteDome is inverted and allows you to softly diffuse direct light with a large, soft source without creating flare on the front of your lens.
The included AmberDome warms the light from your electronic flash for shooting outdoors at dusk, or early morning, open shade, interiors with tungsten lighting, and sunsets, with the sun behind the subject.
The included ChromeDome seriously increases the light output, while still keeping the diffusion properties of your flash unit. You will have up to double the power and efficiency, but the look will be identical.
