Gadget Rave: Lightscoop

I was still trying to understand all the functionalities of my dSLR when I was hearing positive reviews about the Lightscoop. The Lightscoop produces natural, flattering light on your subject.

Here is what the Lightscoop looks like:



You just place it on top of your dSLR by slipping the Lightscoop over the flash in its pop-up position, and shoot away. I was taken aback by how much more natural my shots looked.

The before and after difference is incredible. Check it out:

This is my BEFORE shot:



This is my AFTER shot: (See how it produces natural light on my subject?)



How does this work, you ask?
The Lightscoop bounces the light from the pop-up flash to a white or light-colored ceiling or wall for even lighting. I was honestly stunned by the difference. Therefore, there must be a bounce surface for it to work properly. At only $25 with free shipping, we are so glad we took a chance and tried this gadget!

Oh wow, what a difference! I don't have a dSLR, but I'll definitely keep the light scoop in mind once I'm on the market for one! Thanks :)
