| p.1 #4 · Mola Demi vs. Profoto beauty dish using Acute2/Uni400JR |
No problem. You are MORE than Welcome!
Excellent choice. You made the correct decision!
>> Do you think the Uni 400 will look worse on the Demi compared to Profoto?
Pjny, like they say in life... 'Everything Changes Everything!'. .
YES... Every Flash Head has *Slightly* different 'Dispersion Characteristics' (Other than Color Temperature of course) when used in a Soft Box -- *** PRIMARILY *** depending upon the following two (2) factors:
1). The *SHAPE* of the Flash Tube.
2). Where it is *Situated*. (* I.e... How far 'FORWARD' it sits into the various Light Modifier that you are planning on using it with).
*I believe that it is these points that the Salesperson was perhaps trying to bring to your attention and I definitely do believe that they both have 'Relative Merit'.
As I physically do not have both Flash Heads in front of me and have never worked with the Dynalite... I cannot make this call for you.
Yes! Speed Rings can vary greatly between different Light Modifiers and some combinations work MUCH better than others. Any Photographer worth a 'Grain of Salt' will tell you this...
HOWEVER, since you already own both Heads... If you measure how far FORWARD the *Center* of the Flash Tube is on each head ('In relation to the front of the 'Mounting Ring')... You will then have your answer!
Although, I too... Might personally be tempted to use your Better Flash Head (*I.e. the Profoto Acute 600) on the Mola and then put the Dynalite Uni 400 on the Octa... The final choice is of course up to you and only you!
(*If I were you... I would always use my 'Best' Flash Head on my 'Main Light' and use my 'Secondary' Flash Heads on my 'Fill Light' or 'Background Light' etc., etc.
Even if you don't have the opportunity to do this now... You always have the 'Option' to make this comparison (down the road) and then YOU will 'Truly Know'... Which Combo works/appeals best to you!
As per previous... My 'Primary Concern' with the Uni 400 Jr., *MIGHT* be how far forward the *Center* of the Flash Tube is on the head in relation to the Mounting Ring (I.e. how far it sits 'Into' the Mola).
I too of course, have not seen or used the Mola Speed Ring for your Dynalite that you are planning to use... So I thus cannot comment on whether I would like it or not....
Please feel free to get back to me if you need further assistance or perhaps don't understand what I have tried to explain. (* I too at one time had to learn all of this!). BIG SMILE.
