| p.1 #2 · p.1 #2 · Mounting umbrellas to strobe (shaft or speedring?) |
Just curious if there is a preferred method to mount large umbrellas to strobe units. Using a speedring will ensure the light is perfectly centered on the umbrella, but will this weaken the latches on the strobe unit? Especially if using outdoors even in light or no wind? All the weight, even at <10 lbs, stressing the unit as opposed to a shaft guide on the top of the unit seems like it could eventually weaken or possibly break the latches or tabs used to mount the speedring. Thoughts?
It would depend on the mount. On Profoto, for example, there are no latches or tabs to weaken.
