    I just purchased one after using a friends last night to shoot a wedding. Pictures came out good w/ not too much overexposure from the flash. I haven't used a whitetail but I'm sure once I use one, I'll buy that too. :rofl:

    LS = too much light loss
    WT = ugly as sin, but very useful

    But the Demb Flip It is better priced, so thats the better choice.

    You're assuming wedding photographers are credible?

    Gary Fong did a very good job marketing himself, and he put the lightsphere into all the lame wedding photogs (Becker, jessica claire, etc) hands for free, just for the free advertisements.

    they're not credible? Not the industry leading professionals? They're all big enough that they could care less about $40 free product, they use what works ;)
