Mounting an EX580 to the PLM parabolic umbrella system
Mar 21, 2010

I wanted to display a very simple rig I've made to get the EX580 as close to the center as possible. The entire rig costs less than $5.00 to make. I have found that moving the EX about 1" outside of the plane of the umbrella face produces the best results. I also use the built in 14mm wide angle diffuser when I use the EX.
