Re: The modifier mount issues....

True, it's just that a lot of these workarounds are less than elegant, and more often than not add a lot of bulk and extra set-up time, sometimes defeating the purpose of a small and light location flash rig in the first place. And it makes me angry when so-called makers of professional flash gear that are asking professional prices for their gear can't even get something so simple as an umbrella mount right! I'm thinking about the Elinchrom Quadra - first of all, Elinchrom have insisted on the stupid 7mm shaft for years, and then they forgot to include a flash tube protector and proper umbrella mount - some pretty major oversights I think. It provokes me when they charge "professional" prices but deliver products that are half-baked and needs tinkering to make it usable. Yet, it's the flash unit I have used the most for the last couple of years, so I will give them credit for that. I just wished they would have made it a more complete product, and given the ergonomics some more thought.
