lightsphere and early death of flash?
Flashes are made to flash. Over and over and over again. Thousands and thousands of times. I have one flash that is over 10 years old an I know I have had to fire it tens of thousands of times. Youre new Fongle is not going to decrease your flash life by any significant amount of time and if you are killing a flash every few years then that means you are shooting enough to more than pay for it.
