I used to have a hard time to find a diffuser for my flash. But I found in the market that only Gary Fong's Light Sphere is available. And the price is too exp... Therefore I searched the web to find some "cheap" replacement, and asked OP whether they can bring into the local market. They agreed and successfully imported the product in just 2 days!!! A wonderful job done by OP :thumbsup:

Today I visited their shop and get myself one piece. Yeah, it is an exact copied version of "Gary Fong's Light Sphere", but costs only at half of the price, SGD 45!!!:heart:
And the model that fits the AF-540FGZ is P2/C2.

2. Direct Flash with the diffuser



3. Direct Flash with the diffuser but removed the white cap

OP located at SLS 6th floor #06-53/31, tel: 63391035. Dun think that they have the cloud model at stock. But definitely you can ask them to order for you.

Thanks for the picture comparisons. Now I want one. Any idea what model for the AF360FGZ flash gun? Looks like a trip to OP is in order... better get my copy before Gary Fong put pressure on US govt to impose trade sanctions on China for possible copyright infringement. :bsmilie:

I would say the build is very close to the real one.

Looks very nice. I'd love to see a direct comparison between this one and the Sto-fen Omnibounce :)
Bro, stofen omnibounce has nothing against this particular diffuser. Almost every other diffuser in the market works better than the omnibounce IMO.

Both look abit under exposed on my screen, but the first one is better though.

Yeap both are underexposed, problem with P-TTL getting right exposure when you get close to the subject. I was testing the different setting for the lightsphere. The 1st setting is better for portrait then. Thanks.
