LIGHTSPHERE-II DIFFUSER - CLOUD
LIGHTSPHERE CLOUD
To appease our old-school hard plastic Portrait Dome fans, we've taken the soft clear photojournalist and added the Translucent coloring you've been asking for.  

Now, you can create the same great light you fell in love with in the Classic Portrait Dome... AND... have the all conveniences you've come to expect  from the  sleek, snug fitting and easy to transport Photojournalist!

I'm often asked, "Which one's better?" One isn't better than the other You need both for different lighting situations! For a comparison of the two, click here.

All other diffusers "point" the light somewhere like a flashlight. Lightsphere is the only diffuser that lights up the entire room, softening your images tremendously.
Comparison

 

In a comparison of other flash diffusers on the market, Professional Photographer gave the Lightsphere their top five star rating!

Use the new cloud colored photojournalist to create the warmest softest light possible from your on-camera flash. Studio quality light, that you can carry in your gear bag, makes the Cloud Lightsphere the perfect diffuser for portrait photographers and wedding photojournalists.This soft flattering light is the same light you are accustomed to finding in your studio when using a softbox, Calumet panel or large umbrella. If you shoot outside of your studio - you will love the Cloud Lightsphere.

Gary Fong Table
The Inverted Dome is included with every Lightsphere.
Choose the CLEAR version for fast action, large groups and dimly lit scenes.  Switch to the new CLOUD for the softest, warmest light yet. Great for close-ups, portraits and events.
Both Lightsphere-II bodies (clear and cloud) are designed to work as part of the Lightsphere Inverted Dome System - our innovative line of lighting accessories.
