Installation was easy and very fast, the strap held the lightsphere on to my HVL-F60M flash very securely. I appreciated the ability for this to collapse into a compact size, made carrying and storage very easy given the limited space in my luggage.
I mainly shot indoors as well as outside under the harsh afternoon sun. This product softened shadows very nicely and provided nice even skin tones to my pictures. Outdoors it worked best when pointed directly at the subject with the dome on.
Well made rubber. But the top falls off if not jammed in there. So there is a potential for it to be lost. It has fallen off my flash twice. I probably didn't put it in there right, but only because you have to shimmy the stupid thing into the top opening just right.
It's hard and inconvenient to get it on the flash. Velcro is an okay solution to getting it to stay on the flash. But usually takes me putting down all of my gear on the ground and using both hands to stretch the base around my flash (Canon 600 ex-rt). I love the results but f'ing hate this thing.
The bottom does fold up to make it slightly more compact, but still very hard to travel with and usually takes up more room than I would prefer.
If only magmod and this would get together and create a hybrid offspring, that would be perfect. The diffusion size is great vs magmod, just wish it would connect using magnets or something so in a rush, I could just clip it on my flash. Doing a lot of photo journalism or fast paced events, putting down my stuff and fiddling with this stupid a** thing, I just don't have time for it.
It will remain as my go to until something better comes along, but at $60, it's a really mediocre solution, that just doesn't have a good answer yet.
I had also purchased the mini flash softbox diffuser too and thought maybe this cheaper tool would suffice. My first session I used the mini softbox and while I like it better than the light direct from the flash, it really didn't fill the area as much as I would like. So the next session I used the Fong Sphere and was pleasantly surprised. It did require a bit more light power since some light is lost to the sides and back but the spread of the light on and around the subject was very pleasing.
This really made the situation much more tolerable and I was happy I had spent the extra funds to get the sphere. I am sure I will use it more in the future which brings me to another notable point of the sphere. It is a nice thickness of rubber material with hard plastic top and I feel that this material construction will last a good deal of time as long as it is not left out in the sun to bake and dry out.
