Does anyone have any experience using the CM Products Dome diffusers?  From what little information I could find about them, they seem like a well made product.  Before I drop $130.00 bucks ($65.00 per dome) before shipping, I wanted to get some "real world" feedback or opinions on using the domes.  How is the coverage?  How is the light quality?  Do they stay on?  Any information would be great.

They make them for several different Sea & Sea and Inon strobes.  I would be using them with two ys-d1's, so if you have used them with the ys-d1's I would love to get your opinion.

 

thanks,

old post, i know, and old review. Can anyone offer any additional experiences and opinions about these diffusers? the review said they're light hungry, which is concerning, but the website also says they are using a new material now. 

 

Any comments are much appreciated.

I like the quality of the light quite a lot, very soft and even. The mounting on the YS-D1/D2 strobes is relatively secure -- they slide onto the front basically and are held in place by friction. Over time the plastic of the mounting part on one of mine has cracked, so now it doesn't stay on anymore. I've seen some other manufacturers with better mounting mechanisms, but, to be fair, the YS-D1/D2s don't leave a lot of options for secure mounting of diffusers up front..
