then your LS must be freshly caught in the morning when u bought it, mine not very fresh and have to stretch around after squeezing into my Lowepro bag.
hmm wat's the material huh..not hard plastic? i have no idea..
the LS material is soft, but the dome is hard.
so you can squeeze it in your cam bag, but you cant when the dome is attached.
as much as i like the LS, but i got to admit, bringing it is a Bitch
hmmm doesnt sound that bad... lemme try to make abetterbouncecard 1st before deciding to splurge on LS
its actually quite easy to store. just put another lens in it and place it in your back. the dome, store it separately in another zipper compartment as its pretty slick.
Can it be used on Sigma EF-500 DG Super? Thinking about getting a Canon flash instead! ahhh all this buy buy!
I have a Sigma EF-500 DG Super and a Canon 580EX and the LSPJ for the 580EX definately does not fit on the Sigma. Although with some creativity u might be able to get it to fit both if you buy the bigger of the 2 and use those big rubber bands to attach to the smaller flash head to get the LS tighter. Hur hur.

If you're interested, you could actually DIY very effective Light Diffusers for a fraction of the cost. I can get 2 fairly large diffusers for under $2.
Besides the obvious (cost), one of the main things I find useful is that you can customise DIY diffusers to no end. I have mine specifically tailored to handle high ceilings, or no ceilings without having to resort to using high ISO settings as well as my preferred colour temp without fiddling with WB.
The only negative (similar to the GFLS) is that once assembled, it takes up space in the bag.
Basically I got these larger, translucent and fairly thick plastic material from those lelong shops. $1 or $1.99 for two sheets. These are actually table liners or 'disposable' chopping boards.
I measured the dimension of my flash head, and designed a layout including little flaps on each side that acts as fasteners. I was lazy so i designed a very simple, basic rectangular shape. In real life, works just as well as round ones.
Cut out using an art knife, score and fold, then use double-sided tape to assemble and add tape on the outside for security! Easy peasie!
