    Profoto Franken Fresnel Lives!

    Just took delivery of a 8" Fiilex fresnel modifier.
    Attached to my Profoto standard reflector with very very little modification needed!
    Pricey but no Profoto nosebleed!!
    Super light weight. And works beautifully!

    bought from B&H Fiilex 8" Fresnel Lens for Q-Series LED Lights FLXA036 B&H

    How is the modification done to adapt to the Profoto mount? Any image samples yet?

    Nice work, Eric! (Eric's are so creative, aren't we?
    Much nicer, and more elegant solution than my own "Franken-Mole".
    I'm gonna have to check that out! I got a few of these 10 and 12 inch Mole-Richardsen fresnels from a garbage pile in Hollywood and gutted them and fitted with 5/8 mounts for strobe heads. They are old, rusty, ridic' heavy and clunky...but get the job done. I love fresnel light! My assistants have been complaining about having to "hand hold" them so I was looking into getting a Bron Flooter but holy crap those things are expensive! (Makes PF look downright affordable! Its all relative) Your solution looks much more affordable and elegant.
    Thanks for the idea!
