Lightscoop Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

Welcome to the 2010 Holiday Guide here on A Mom’s Impression.  From now until December 15,  I will feature products perfect for giving and receiving this holiday season. Be sure to visit often and enter the many giveaways that will be featured.  Happy Holidays!

I have found the perfect stocking stuffer for shutterbugs!  I fell in love with taking pictures about 12 years ago.  Since then, I have toyed with SLRs including a Pentax, a Minolta and my current camera from Nixon. I love being able to control the settings of my cameras but I really dislike the pop up flash that comes with most SLRs.  Professor Kobre has found a solution without having to purchase a heavy external flash, the Lightscoop.

The Lightscoop is  a devise that fits on your camera’s hot shoe where you would normally attach an external speed-light.  The Lightscoop takes your existing pop up flash and bounces the light off the wall.  The result is a natural, softer looking photograph.  What a simple design that has completely changed my photographic life.  The Lightscoop works with the following makes and models:


Canon 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, Rebel XTi, XSi, 400, 450, XT, XTi, T1i, XS, 350, 500/550D, 1000D
Fuji FinePix Pro series
Nikon D40, D40x, D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300, D700, D3000, D5000
Olympus E420, E520, E3, E620
Pentax K-7, K10D, K100D, K20D, K200D
Sigma SD14


Sony a200, a250, a300, a330, a380, a500, a550, a700

The Sony hot shoe has a different design than all other camera makers’. For this reasond do NOT order a Universal model if you have a Sony camera. Select Sony Only and do remember that the Sony model will never work with other cameras.

I love SLRs.  When they came out with digital SLRs, I immediately wanted one.  It took several years but a few years ago I was finally able to purchase a digital SLR.  I haven’t been able to buy a lot of accessories for my camera, but I really hated the pop up flash.  It was on my Christmas list this year to ask for one.  I hear about Lightscoop and immediately wanted one.  When I found out that Lightscoop wanted to be apart of my 2010 Holiday Gift Guide I was really excited to try it out.  I immediately took it out, slid it into my hot shoe and was off taking pictures.  I am very impressed on how much better my photos are looking.  Here are some examples:

With Lightscoop (Notice there is not a glare on the pumpkin)

As you can see, the pictures taken with my Lightscoop are more natural and do not have a harsh light. If you have a loved one who is a shutterbug like I am you must get them this for a gift.  I guarantee that they will love it.

    I own a little Canon G9, but I’m hoping Santa will bring me a full-fledged SLR. :)

    I have a Sony a230…I wonder if this would work on that! What’s the difference between using the light scoop and not using the flash at all? Sounds like something I’d love to try!
