    Default Lightsphere, clear or cloud ?

    Hi.... need a opinion here.

    Just got a Canon 580EX MKII as a pre-bonus, pre-Xmas present for myself. Heard that Gary Fong Lightsphere-II is a very good diffuser to use. Check on the website and found that there are 2 version...... clear & cloud.

    Question.....
    1) Anyone out there using Lightsphere, is it good ??
    2) Which version ??
    3) Any other diffuser which is just as good (smaller in size) ??

    lastly, saw at Cathy Photo they are selling at about $77...... anyone know of somewhere in S'pore selling cheaper. Thxs for any info.

    Have used the podket magiclight to good effects on my SB-800 flash. Similar effect only that this does not have a cap to cover the dome.

    Thxs all for all the useful info.....

    I don't take much Portraits.... mainly Landscape or Macro....

    It would seems that the Clear type would suit me better.....
