    Elinchrom Mount

    Looking for a beauty dish that will fit my Elinchrom mount but also take a grid, which the Elinchroms do not. What other lighting system are compatible with Elinchroms mount.

    Guy,
    Take a look at Elinchrom's 44cm square reflector. It comes with a grid.
    Their large beauty dish (27" or 70cm) looks like it has a lip that might hold a grid if you can find one just a bit smaller

    Cool,
    There is also the Mola option. They are a lot more directional nd there are elinchrom speed rings available.

    Yes, except the only 22" grid from Speedo is 35 degrees, not 20: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...Reflector.html

    Re: Elinchrom Mount

    No Mola grid though. 35 degrees should be okay

    I'm back to adapting a Profoto so I can get the 20 degree grid.

    The Mola demi looks nicer though and we can mount with the same adapter

    Really liking that Mola Demi. I guess we could always tape a 22 inch Profoto grid in or it actually may fit

    Re: Elinchrom Mount

    The Mola Setti might end up acting a lot like a grid with its harder edges.

    Re: Elinchrom Mount

    The Mola dishes put out some very nice looking light. Each one is different (Demi, Setti and Euro), ranging from softer to harder edges (no order in my listing). They do not have a lip for a grid, as you would like, but you may be able to fashion some sort of edge clamp to hold a grid in place. Having the Elinchrom mount is another nice option also.

    I keep looking at them for my DynaLites. Still a bit pricey compared to others like Speedotron or even Hensel, but the light coming out is different and quite pleasing, I think.

    Guy,

    You could always trade in your Elinchrom or Dyna or Speedo to broncolor and get up to $2000 for it towards a new broncolor pack! Then you would be able to buy the exact reflectors you need form the largest and most innovative line of reflectors and accessories made.

    But where's the fun in that right? You could always buy a little bit of everything and keep Home Depot in business buying Duct Tape etc to mash it all together.........

    (for those who don't know me, this is my sarcastic humour at work )

    Re: Elinchrom Mount

    Dave: Send me pricing on the Broncolor Mobil with regular head and beauty dish with grid. If my Ranger works as a $2000 trade-in, I may want a pair of the above

    The Profoto Beauty Dish grid is 25 Jack ... at least mine is.

    Re: Elinchrom Mount

    Both Norman and Speedo both make 22" grids which fit the 22" Mola BD just fine. I have the Norman grid on my Mola. My Mola has a Dynalite collar mount, but you can get just about any mount you want and it's a swap you could do yourself with just an allen wrench.

    Pic:

    Oh, and just as a point of information, the 17" square Elinchrom beauty dish that is referenced on the 1st page is AMAZING. It came from the factory with a grid and sheet of diffusion (very similar to ToughSpun). I had it with my Ranger RX AS before I traded my entire Elinca kit away.

    Re: Elinchrom Mount

    Thanks Jonathan i picked up a Mola Demi 22 inch and ordered a 22 grid and bag from Kacey enterprises. Very nice fit and setup they use . They have three velcro clamps attached that hold it firmly in place.

    Thank for the approval of my product for the Demi Guy....
    Hope they are still working out well for you

    FYI the Lighttools grids for Mola only work well with a diffusion sock.

    Re: Elinchrom Mount

    It is working out really well thank you. Love the case. Really keeps the Mola and grid pretty well protected. Do me a favor though in the Commercial Vending area . Start a thread on your product with web site and contact info. That is like the permanent home for our vendors and a good resource for the members. Also please join in the fun on the forum.

    Thanks again for your product. Guy
