NEW PRODUCT! - The Derek Pye Cathedral Dome Flash Diffuser!

on Friday, 09 February 2007. Posted in Derek's Diary

Introducing a new product for professional and hobbyist photographers. The Derek Pye 'Cathedral Dome Flash Diffusing Kit'™

FlashdiffuserThe Cathedral Dome attaches to ALL popular makes of flashgun and transmorphs the light into a exact simulacrum of the light found in St Paul's Cathedral at 4-30pm on a Saturday afternoon in August. This works anywhere - outdoors, in doors, it even works in Chelsea Registry office.

The light from the Derek Pye 'Cathedral Dome Flash Diffusing Kit' is similar to that seen during near death experiences and is nicknamed ' God's own light' by serious top professionals who are at the top of the award winning husband and wife wedding photography game.

Its a must have item for 2007. Don't be seen without a Dome. Get 'God's own light' from Derek Pye today - only £19.99 dome only or £29.99 with special stained glass inserts.

Don't confuse this product with Gary Wong's inferior Lightsphere dome. I use my Lightsphere to keep peanuts in while I'm working - that's all its good for!

Look at these examples and see if you can spot the one taken with the Derek Pye 'Cathedral Dome Flash Diffusing Kit' and the one without the Derek Pye 'Cathedral Dome Flash Diffusing Kit' - we've even labelled them to help you 

No DomeWith DomeBuy one now before they're all gone. Its the only flash diffuser on the market designed by Sir Christopher Wren!

    I've got a Gary Wong inferior Lightsphere dome, and it isn't just good for holding peanuts. Derek, you may have underestimated this product.

    I frequently use mine for holding food I've lifted from the bridal table. It started with bread rolls (the perfect size), but I quickly discovered it could also hold cheese cake, and most desserts. You can't blame us, wedding photography is a long, hungry, thankless job. But with the right tools, we do it with a smile!

    Is the spire of your Cathedral Dome Flash Diffuser removable for stashing food in? A waterproof model that spirits could be syphoned into, would be especially appealing.

    Does the Cathedral Dome Flash Diffuser produce a nice halo effect and does it work on a Canon 5D Mark II as it could overcome the black rings produced at low light. I might wait for Canon to sort out this problem with a firmware update. Any plans for a Christiopher Wren mark II.
    Thanks.
    How much is the postage to UK?

      The Cathedral Dome is far too heavy to post. Each dome is individually built on site by our master craftsmen and hence will fit any camera/flash combo. There are no plans for a Mark II due to ongoing legal proceedings.

      All the best

      No - only a hobbyist would require a case. Keep your gear ready to go at all times. You never know when you might see an exciting opportunity to photograph a tree.

    I have been thinking about buying one of these but, I'm afraid of becoming sexually aroused by the shape; probably not acceptable for a wedding photographer. Do you have anything less exotic such as a Butlins chalet? I shoot most of my wedding photography while standing in an overturned fridge (obviously removing the plastic coated wire shelves first).
    Did I mention I'm a videographer?

    This is a great product, just wondering if it will fit into my car! I have a trailer tho so maybe i can transport it to events that way. My mate the jolly green giant says he can put it in his pocket and act as my assistant to shoots.

    I do not photograph weddings however I am developing a niche market in photographing funerals. Whilst I am sure the Cathedral Dome flash is ideal for church funerals and burials I am wondering about the application to crematoria. Do you have a clip-on brick wall dome that might be more appropriate? And something for the Jewish and Muslims?
    Do you a basic dome in black?

    Hi Derek, I am wondering if you have any plans to produce a Mosque Diffuser Kit as I am about to do a muslim wedding for my friend Mufti and I get the feeling the Cathederal Dome Diffuser effect will not be roundly appreciated.

      I think you'll find that the majority of Muslims don't have a problem with diffusers of different faiths. I wouldn't take my gear in a rucksack style camera bag though.

      All the best

    Is the Cathedral Dome compatible with being used on a Tripod? I realise I don't need a tripod if I'm shooting with flash but I think it makes me look professional, something my pictures don't manage.

      No - you should always mount the Cathedral Dome directly on the flash gun. You should only use a tripod to lean on or hang your leather jacket.
