    I don't use his lightsphere, but I am going to his house next week to drink beer and hang out in his infinity pool :)

    There you go. Gary's footing the bill.

    At least I would hope it's not BYOB.

    I just got a third party version of his "puffer". I haven't shot with it yet but it looks promising.

    I have his lightsphere. Unfortunatly I dont use it too much because the sto-fen is so easy to slip on and im usually always in a rush. I find that I have to sit down and muscle that thing on my flash. The few times I have used it it does do a great job in most situations. A little more diffusion then the ob. The collapsable one i have does however do a nice job of holding my battery gripped camera up in my bag when i have me 70-200 on it. :D

    Its soft but its heavily diffused and you will lose somelight so you will need to boost the flash a bit. Can drain your batteries fast if you dont have a battery pack.
