The Lightsphere is neat but enormous. I've been meaning to pick up an Omnibounce for taming direct-flash photos. What makes this 80/20 thing better?

Ah, OK, I get the 80/20 thing. Not for me, probably, as I'm looking for a diffuser to use outdoors. No ceilings outdoors.

Mine's architect's drafting paper (similar to parchment or non-reflective wax paper in appearance). It softens the flash wonderfully, and you don't loose very much light to it. It's REALLY cheap–Ihold mine on with a rubber band. A tad tacky, but very nice output.

I use the 80/20 and the ultrasoft, pretty much sold on lumiquest products. I use the ultrasoft outdoors and am pleased with it.

I've been using the Lightsphere II and like it. I just ordered a Lightsphere PJ to see if it is any good. From what has been posted, the LSII is a bit more warm than the PJ. Other than the size, I like the LSII.

I have used:

Lightsphere II - works as advertised.

Westcot Mini Apollo - good for very near subjects (e.g. macro), but loses too much power for far subjects.

Omnibounce - threw it away...
