WTB Softboxes/Beauty Dishes
I’m looking to pick up some softboxes and/or some beauty dishes. What I’d be looking for is:
1x X-Large Softbox (Min 5 feet on the long end)
1x Large Softbox (Around 4 feet on the long end)
2x Small Softboxes (Around 2 feet on the long end) or Beauty Dishes (White interior between 20 and 24 inches would be great)
View using Google Maps: Canada
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.
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).
