"Gary Fong Diffuser"


Sykesville, US
          

Has anyone tried Gary Fong's Whale-Tail "Reporter" model diffuser? If so, I'd like to hear your opinion. My Speedlight is a Nikon SB-900.

Thanks,

Al in MD

I have purchased both models: studio and the reporter and tried both.
They are wothwhile. THE studio is a bit bulkier so, it is more appropriate for indoors. They only drawback is that the flaps are rather flimsy, especially the silver one of the studio, so I think Gary Fong will have to re-study that design.
However, highly recommended.
Hope it helps

Thank you, Jose, for taking the time to answer my question. That's what I was looking for: the opinion of an actual user and the pros/cons of the thing.

Happy shooting,

Al in MD
