Strobies (Interfit) flex mount for Canon 600EX-RT
« on: August 30, 2013, 04:49:30 PM »
Hi,

I'm looking to buy a Strobies portrait kit and it looks like you need a flex mount specific to your flash for a good fit.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/621563-REG/

Does anyone know if the flex mount for the 580EX will fit the 600EX-RT? I only have the 600 so I can't compare them side by side. The reviews on B&H say the flex mount for the 580 fits quite tightly, so if the 600 is even a hair bigger, it will make it even tighter (not sure that is a good thing).

Any input would be appreciated.

I believe the 600 head is slightly larger.  I recall reading that the StoFen diffuser for the 580 would not fit on the 600; however, the StoFen for the old 550EX reportedly does fit on the 600 (although it lacks the cutout for the gel sensor).

Fotodiox makes a similar kit that isn't strobe specific, so it fits most flashes. It also includes a large foldable beauty dish with diffuser.  Its heavy grade platic and snaps together oragami style.  Not as sturdy maybe but still fairly solid, not to mention light.

The 600 head is definitely bigger than the 580. My 550 StoFen doesn't fit nicely onto my 600.

I don't know about the specific kit you are looking at, but I and a huge number of pros are using the Rouge Flashbender kits. They are very good modifiers and I highly recommend them.

Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

It fits. It just takes a bit of persuasion. (I just double checked).

Be sure you get the SGM 700 which was for the EX580II.
