Does anyone here have one or have used one
Is it worth the 70 bucks for a diffuser
No it is not worth the $70. Just go to a chinese restaurant and get one of their clear 1 qt containers.
haha any experience with it
It's $50, last I checked... or least when I got mine. It works surprisingly well.
I also did a comparison with a chinese take out container (since my dad made fun of me for getting one), and the take out container does decently well, but I kept getting hot spots through it.
If you've got $50 lying around and you use your flash a lot, by all means, get it. I got it to try it out, and it hardly leaves my flash now.
i guess it depends on how much you are getting payed to use it.
would a 1dm2 and a 400 f/2.8 work well? yes. could i justify buying them? no. not unless i worked for SI or national geographic
Make your own.
BTW, how did the Ducati shoot go?
It went great thanks, I was under the impression that I was going to be shooting bikes but it was a fashion show to show off their new product. I was surprised when I got there and saw a run way set up.
Thanks for all the input I think I might try it out because its not that much money and I just saw some pretty good shots with it and it looks like its worth the money.
Not getting payed just for personal ownership and use all around
what about a stofen or lumiquest 80/20? doesnt look anywhere near as silly.
True, doesn't look as silly, but a standard stofen doesn't give as wide an area for the light to bounce around before exiting. The Lumiquest might do a decent job. I'll have to mess with my dad's Lumiquest/softbox and see how it works.
My only problem with the LS2 is that if it bumps anything, it pops off the flash. I need to find a way to anchor it down.
I'd never put something that hideous on my flash
I swear I type that address in like 10 times a day.
wow will have to pass this along. Great idea. Learned the note card trick from my grandfather adn allways used that. Will give this a try for the holidays.
