    Searching: specific light modifier

    greetings,
    So I've been shooting panoramics in vertical slices - but with people placed
    across the length of the frame, at different depths.. I'd been using a Ranger 1200ws head with a grid,
    boomed overhead to 'spotlight" and bring down the ambient. Even with diffusion, I find it too harsh still.
    Looking for softer light but with the ability to spotlight - and still light enough
    for an assistant to boom overhead, like 7-10ft length..

    A) Looking at the Westcott foldable "beauty dish".
    Anyone use this and can it be gridded? Any ideas?

    B) I've thought of using stripboxes, but I'd need more assistants, and also problematic
    since I'm shooting overlaps as I pan across the frame -so it has to be from overhead.

    PS whatever happened to lithium battery conversions for the Eli Ranger?
