    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.

    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

    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.

    Definitely - when I go to S'pore again! Just got back from S'pore 3 weeks ago and I didn't buy! haaa! Unless I find the shop here. How much are they going for there? The clear one right?
    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.

    I just put the LS as it is with the dome attached into my 7 mil dollar home. Still got space. Those that are not needed to bring will be left inside my dry cabinet.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    yeah, adaptor. Self made. hehe. I think Sigma is the bigger of the two. My friend had a problem of it suffering from ED (erectile dysfunction) hahahahaha when shooting vertical shots using Lightsphere. So end up have to shoot direct for Sigma. Maybe his is too seasoned. I wonder.

    Hi Titan,

    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.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Hi Bro,

    Would love to know how you make them although I already bought the LS. High Ceilings is still not a problem that LS can tackle properly (dont know about the new chromedome
    though). Thanks for sharing too!

    Merry Christmas

    No probz.

    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!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!
