    This may or may not have been posted here before but Im new here so sue me. I just bought my first lightsphere and within 5 minutes of using it, i was annoyed beyond belief. The damn thing wobbles like there's no tomorrow! Each time I shift from landscape to portrait, it comes very close to comming off. So i decided to do a quick and easy undoable mod to end my frustration:

    Using simple 3M velcro, I made the thing incredibly secure. Now it won't come off even if you bump it against something. Im incredibly pleased.

    :thumbup:

    I put the male velcro on the inner rim of the lightsphere and the the female velcro on the flash.

    Yours looks different than mine where the sphere attaches to the flash. I have one that came with a velcro strap and secures it to the flash unit.

    The spheres are made to fit certain flashes, sounds like you may have been sold the wrong one.
