Viggo: Phottix makes several softboxes that you can place your lights inside. They are ok. I've not had any issue with them yet. The only thing I don't like about those boxes is that you are limited in tilting movement.
Thanks! My Swedish friend also uses them, but can't get them in Norway, and I wonder, are the rods inside the umbrella boxes any better than the "eBay stuff" ?
I'm aware of the limited tilt action, and it's a large drawback, but it's either that or not taking it with me due to needing heavy sand bags. I just take the chance with the inside mount boxes, lol.
Any one have a link to where I can buy this bracket?
I have two of these and they work brilliantly. No wobble at the mount even with a 120 octabox http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151181673856?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649
This seller has decent softboxes. The essentialphoto/pixapro ones are well made (for the price) and don't feel super cheap. Yes they aren't profoto but then what do you really expect for £50? http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/tsl-2009?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
Thanks for the links. I guess I can't see how it can be mounted horizontally and have no support except the hot shoe. I saw that the Godox one had a screw on the horizontal rail that supported the flash under also, it's also a heavy flash making the load on the hot shoe even worse. It's 642 dollars for the ProFoto plus speedring, but in the end, that enables the use if all ProFoto boxes also.. And investment, at least that's whatni have to
Convince myself of, lol.
