SB900's Diffusion Dome versus Gary Fong's Light Sphere
Oct 31, 2009

May I ask what your experience/opinions are regarding the effectiveness of the included diffusion "dome" (rectangular) that comes with the SB900 versus the gary fong Lightsphere?

SB900's rectangular, included diffusion "dome" (SW-13H Diffusion Dome):

Gary Fong's Lightsphere Universal Cloud:

I'm wondering if it's a good $50 accessory/gadget to get in order to get softer, more diffused light for casual portraits? It's possible that the included rectangular Nikon diffuser that comes with the SB900 might be just as effective...or then again, not as effective.

Look forward to hearing your advice. Thanks in advance.
