I need help with Elinchrom big octa and Profoto D1 500
Jun 7, 2012


I just tested my new big octa last night. I order also the adapter for Profoto and went to shoot.

I notice that there is a dark spot in the center, the D1 is casting a shadow and making 1 stop differnce (lower) than any other place.

I can work the difference moving the model, but I have never seen a video or something like that.

Am I doing something wrong? Is because the Profoto D1 are larger that Elinchrom heads and then casting more shadows? Is there a fix?

I went to the website Elinchrom and they suggest to contact the local US dealers, I emailed Elinchrom US.

Have you guys experienced something like this?
