Hi guys, I was wondering how many of you here use or used Gary Fong's WhaleTail (either Reporter or Studio). Coz I'm thinking of getting 1 (leaning towards Studio) but want to check on your opinions 1st... :think:

Either I get a GF WT Studio or a GF LS Collapsible, coz I somehow have the idea that Reporter would be smaller than LS Collapsible. Or am I wrong? :dunno:

Pls share your opinions on these 3 items, yeah? Is it really worth the cash to splash? Cheers! :)

(btw, I'm no pro) :angel:

For portraiture work.. LS is still one of my fav light modifier, while I use WT mainly for a do it all light modifier.

BTW, I do own a variety of light modifier eg: omnibounce, ring flash, snoot, beauty dish, softbox, etc Ultimately it's really depend on what is your desired outcome of their usage. ;)

Haha, I knew somebody was gonna fall for that "GF issue" thingy, hehe! Sorry! :D

But thanks for the responses. The thing is I've borrowed n used a LS (I/II?) 1/2 cloud before n was amazed by it. I've only used a bouncer before that. So it seems like LS 2 - WT 0. I don't think I'd mainly shoot portrait coz I'll probably shoot all sorts with my itchy hand... ;p

Anson, is it worth the bulkiness n weight for the WhaleTail? Is it worth carrying it around?

The size is about the similar to LS, only thing is that it doesn't collapse for easy storage.
Do you guys actually use/adjust the flaps that much when using WT? Ever encountered broken flap issue?

thread title is really so misleading, please use a proper thread title.
you won't get much replies to your question and it won't help others looking for similar enquires by using search function.
