    ahaha..it's a damn creative idea i must say.
    the colour gel system would be cool imho.

    but ya man, looks like a toilet system. maybe he got inspired while doing his 'business'. haha.

    Or maybe he got the inspiration from photographing whales ? and when they dive into the sea the tail sorta flips the sea water ?

    so light = sea water droplets and when the tail archs/flips the water it changes the direction of the sea water...

    heh.... just my $0.02

    I realised that many ideas are conceived while you are in the loo....

    looks like have to rotate your flash 90 deg to shoot the "normal" way.

    I'm definately not getting it as I'm not much of a flash user.

    it seems interesting enough... but i'd want to see some sample shots.. see what's the diff between using that and the LS... but the 1 size fits all concept and the ability to use gel filters is quite attractive..

    I think carrying it around may be a problem too...initially it'll look weird.

    thinks of it this way, you can get the people's attention and they are most likely to be smilling at you cause you have a toilet bowl on the flash.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    FUNNY indeed!!!
    It is 4+am and when I saw it on the website, i burst out laughing!
    I had to control my laughter so as not to wake the entire family up.
    While I think its a really innovative and good product, the fact remains that it really really looks like a toiletbowl! For all its worth, I feel that I'm not ready for people's weird looks, thinking why there is a toiletbowl seated high on top of my camera's flash!!

    Oh my... I wonder how useful this is...
    I am NOT a PROfessional photographer and photography is NOT my hobby
