    Ahhhh the joy

    garyfongdome ?

    Sounds suspiciously like a birth control device.

    If anyone even hints at sheep in this thread I will ban them.

    I used to use the fongin thing 3 yrs ago but gave up, as its fongin annoying to shoot with sometimes when you are carrying 2 cameras on you during weddings. It would fongin get caught up or hit someone in the face etc - now im back to carrying one usually, so I might consider it again

    fonging hell.......

    I've tried a couple of different diffusers, they are ok, but the fong kept calling and I was reading a mag article about quite a well known nz photographer who initially hated it and people that used them but is now a complete convert

    So, snuck into dd at lunchtime and snatched the last one

    The universal fit/strap is a lot more secure than the original fitted version

    There is something unbecoming about big hats. If prefer a Stofen beret myself. Personally, I don't like flash anyway, but diffusing has to be the best way to rid of pancake face.

    I think the collapsible one would be great, they didn't have them in stock where I bought mine
