Aputure Lightstorm

Hello ,
I have a couple of Lightstorms (bi colour) and they work great. Just wondering if anyone can reccommend a good way/product to diffuse them. I am one man ban operation so something that fits to the light directly would be preferable but open to all suggestions.
Thanks
Barry

I have just bought one of these but I haven't tried it yet. Nice and cheap so I thought it worth a try.

Re: Aputure Lightstorm

Erik Naso has a review on his blog -- he liked it:

Inexpensive Softbox Solution for the Aputure Lightstorm LS 1S PLUS DEC LANC Cable Triggers Record! |

I just ordered one this evening, so no personal experience with it yet.

Re: Aputure Lightstorm

It was Eriks review that made me buy it. At the moment I have nothing coming up that will use it so apologies if I don't report back very soon.
It's very lightweight and looks reasonably well made.
I have the other little soft box that Erik reviewed on his site. The one for the small aputure Amarans. It probably works ok using the grid but it's a total pain to fit up. Guaranteed to make you look stupid on set in front of a client if they catch you with. Horrible thing.
