The best investment I ever made!
-Amanuel Tsegu on Twitter

Way better than DIY!
-flickr shooter sirshannon

I have tried the cheaper Chinese versions and another from another brand and to me there is a HUGE difference. The orbis is built MUCH better and the quality of light is amazing.

Without doubt the best photography accessory I own. The light it produces is A+ and it is portable.
