My Amazing New Gizmo {goodbye pop-up flash!}

Arrrrgh I can hardly contain my excitement! This week, I got my very own pair of Professor Kobre’s Lightscoops and they – seriously – have changed.my.life. Even with all the tricks up my sleeve, I still avoid taking pictures inside. ESPECIALLY in the house. I just can’t be bothered with all the work of taking decent shots inside. Then I discovered this amazingly affordable little ditty and I will never be without it again. You’ll probably see lots more from me in the future about the Lightscoop because, well, I’m a little bit in love!

Check these out:

    I LOVE LOVE LIVE mine! I got one about 3 months ago and don’t know what I did before I had it. Oh wait, I do know – I had ugly pop up flash photos!

  • Leilani

    No way!!

    I have wanted one of these for ages! Your photo’s prove why! So cool.

    Did you order it from America? I couldn’t find any stockists that have them in the UK.

    @Leilani: In the UK, they’re distributed by Photosolve.com but I can’t see it on their website. Have emailed for details – watch this space!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this! I have been really unhappy and frustrated with my indoor photos since moving into our new house that has bad lighting and not much natural light. So frustrated in fact that I have almost stopped taking indoor photos….. GASP!!!!

    You have saved the day! Off to go check it out. :)

  • Leilani

    Thankyou very much. Your so kind.

  • elizabethhalford

    Ok Photosolve doesn’t sell them, they just distribute in the UK. So you can order from the lightscoop site and Photosolve sends it to you. The lady from Lightscoop is named Betsy and she’s super duper helpful. Let us know when you get yours!

    I’m so glad you posted this! I’ve been debating whether they REALLY work that well. You never know if they are really using the scoop or a scoop & light set up.

    But you have nothing to gain so you I’ll believe. Definitly on my to buy list now :)

    @leslie: too right! This thing is amazing I wish I’d discovered it sooner. Not to sure about the warming one. A bit orange.

    I love mine. I needed one ASAP for a Christmas party last year and the guy expressed me one and I got it in time. Great customer service. Great investment.

  • B.Sharp Photography

    Thank the Lord for you! I would have never found this before! Just ordered!!!! So excited to use it! (that’s a lot of exclamation points)

    Great shots! This post is two years old so I’m wondering if you’re still using it? I’m considering to buy one but I don’t know if it would be beter to just wait until I can afford an external flash.
