"Gary Fong Collapsible Lightsphere for Nikon SB-910"


Novi, US
          

Hi,

Has anyone tried the new Gary Fong collapsible light sphere with the Velcro closure for the 900/910?

I watched the video and it appeared to be much easier to mount on the flash than the universal one.

Looks pretty nice. I have the predecessor and it isn't really that hard to mount, but this looks faster.

That is what I thought. I am always concerned when I have to put pressure on the flash head. Thank you for your response.

Hi

I've tried it on my SB-800 and it is very easy to attach. The user can decide how much or how little pressure is applied to the flash head.

I have the older one and it worked great. That is the same way the Power Snoot connects and I was not a fan as the SB-910's head was larger than the power snoot and it was never as secure as the Lightsphere. Now the materials that it's made from are completely different, so it may not be an issue.

Thanks....I just bought it. I have the original collapsible but needed another one for my second flash. The first one is a bit of a pain to get on, especially if shooting outdoors in cold weather. The fact that he has this new design must be because he got LOTS of complaints. I like the new design and it could not have been better timing.
Thanks

I bought the Collapsible Lightsphere today. I tried it on my D7100 with my 910 at the store and loved the results. I also purchased the amber dome.

Thanks for your input. I'll post some photographs as soon as there is a compatible link for my OSX 10.9. Frank
