Thread: Will you spend more than $100 for a flash diffuser?

    Default Will you spend more than $100 for a flash diffuser?

    I was looking at the Whale Tail diffuser from Gary Fong. The complete Whale Tail Studio set is selling at USD$129. I really wonder is it really that great and is it worth to spend so much on a flash diffuser alone?

    just wondering the price of the orbis ring flash here in Singapore. It's USD $199 on the official website but how much you got it for? (that is assuming you didn't get it from the site itself.)


    Anyone can help enlighten me as well?

    yes, definitely would spend >$100 for a good diffuser but certainly not for gary fong's products. Cheap imitation works almost as well if there is any.

    i'm also curious about the difference between the Lambency Flash Diffuser and the Lambency Universal Flash Diffuser. am using a 430ex at the moment, with the "a better bounce card", (white foam paper). will the Lambency Flash Diffuser or the Lambency Universal Flash Diffuser provide me with better lighting when i'm outdoors? ie, no ceiling?

    Of course not.
    Unless said diffuser is so good and special until there are no other means that come close.

    I spend my diffuser for just 20 cents and its DIY Gary Fong's product which actually much better than the product. Mine i made using material which bought at IKEA and this DIY have been share from many student photographer at USA and London doing fashion and wedding photography. You just need to use Silicon Drawer Mat to make the diffuser. And when you make extra from it, you can sell to your friends which cost $10.

    Which shop did you get it from and is it cheaper? What flash are you using and how do you find it?
