This light was taking the China Ball concept to a whole other level with light control.  The light has a half moon bottom, but a flat top.  You get a light that has side flaps that roll down to control the source.  The problem with China balls is their circular shape makes it difficult to shape and control.  The pancake which comes in small, medium and large sizes gives you all the control along with letting you add many different globes in the socket depending on what color temp and quality you prefer.
