can anyone who used the Gary Fong Lightsphere before comment on its performance??
1) in the case where there is no ceiling to bounce the light off, does the lightsphere actually make the lightsource that much bigger to soften the shadows?
2) whats the recycle time like on iso 400, f/5.6 in a standard function setting where the subjects are max 4-5m away from camera? can i fire off 4-5 shots in quick succession on the 430exii with fully charged batteries??
3) how does it compare with the stofen in terms of shooting in portrait (not landscape) where the flash unit is to the side of the lens? i ask this question cause i get very harsh shadows from the stofen when used like this. this is off topic but can anyone provide a solution to this problem faced with the stofen, other than moving the subject away from the wall..
