    Very expensive, you are just paying for the hype around the LenSphere marketing.

    Just go on ebay and search for 'contact juggling ball' and you can get them for $10 - $20 each (shipped free from China or Hong Kong), as opposed to around $45 (aud) for the LenSphere. In my younger years I did a bit of contact juggling, I have about 6 of these in a box here at home. The LenSphere people have just marketed something that has been around for ages into a 'branded' product and are quite frankly ripping photographers off.

    oh and if you do not know what contact juggling is:

    Yeah too much money:

    Apologies, but I'm cheap.
    This is the lid of an old glass bottle found in 'the sticks'
    Can't remember exactly where, but I think it was an old gold diggings area.
    The bottle itself was damaged badly but the lid was intact.

    While the crystal ball wasn't easy to locate and was purely dumb luck, it was 'free' and just dumped in some pile of dirt along with many other artefacts of the era(nails, tools, other strange rusty iron bits, etc).

    For an easier method of acquisition tho, I'd agree with Rick .. ebay cheap crystal ball .. take note of the size they advertise too tho!
