Light Scoop

  1. I saw an ad for this gadget, which fits on the pop up flash of some DSLR's. It is a universal size, but the wab site does not include any KM's or Sony dslr's. Has anyone used this product on a KM or Sony? Thanks
     
  2. . See Ken Kobré's Lightscoop at: http://lightscoop.com/ Interesting compromises: http://lightscoop.com/faq/index.php Looking at the large picture on display at: http://www.lightscoop.com/store/product.php?productid=16149&cat=0&page=1 and I notice it expects to slide into a "standard" ISO accessory retaining bracket. It's just a mirror - try one form a dime-store compact and see if you like it.
     
  3. I'm sure you can DIY one with an old mirror, or even foil. It'll be a lot cheaper.
     
  4. This gadget is a good idea, mostly for casual photographers, and I'm sure you could modify one to fit your camera. They probably won't be coming out with one any time soon for the Sony. It only works if you have light colored walls or ceiling to bounce off of. The Gary Fong Lightsphere is a better, more universal device for more serious work. Costs more, and is for pros. Gary Fong also has a "Puffer" diffuser for popup flash on cameras that's very cheap.
     
  5. Minolta has the CD-1000 Closeup Diffuser - I love it - it makes the flash larger so shadows are more diffuse.
