    I've got the clear LightSphere and I love the effect that it produces. However, in practical terms, there's a limit to its use. There are common complaints about it dropping off and straining/loosening your flash tilt-head. I personally find it a bit cumbersome to use and the risk of it dropping off is there, so when I know I'm going to be shooting in a really crowded environment, I'll use the Omni-bounce instead.

    I have the clear one... But does anyone know what the white clip-on "inverted dome" (think that's what they call it) will do? According to Gary, it's to reduce the amt of light bonucing off the ceiling... That's all izzit?

    Thanks!

    it will have the same 'power' output with the chromedome using 1/2 the amount of power.
    effectively will increase your number of flash output by 2.

    Sorry for digging the old thread, does anyone have a comparison of a picture taken with the cloud one versus the clear one .. CP did not allow me to try it first as it is all in the packaging ... (I know that the one is warmer than the other but I guess a picture will help a lot) ..
