Howdy,

all the items you mention are not "one brand(modifier) fits all/any other brand(light source)".

as with lens mounts and camera bodies...

you'll need the proper mount(adapter) for the light modifiers to fit your light(s).

i spent hours and hours and hours 'researching' and went with Alien Bees (Paul C Buff).

PCB is good affordable made in USA equipment. plenty of selection/accessories, great service, and again...good equipment.

i wouldn't fall on a sword to claim it's the best but its good and more than plenty good enough than i need.

i bought a bundle of PCB a few years back and the softboxes were quite 'not impressive/thin wall material' but they did the job.

I bought another bundle more recently and the material PCB uses for their SB/Brollys are way way improved and on par with anything Ive seen from the way way more expensive brands...and I've seen plenty.

Thanks Paul,

I know it's not one size fits all but worst case scenario I should be able to pick up speedrings for anything I buy to attach them to whatever lights I end up getting.

So yeah! My WTB ad still stands!

Thanks for the input though (and I am looking at AB lights and modifiers).

Chris
