p.1 #1 · Quadra and Apollo type soft boxes


I just acquired the quadra Rx light system and was planning on using it itch my eBay Apollo type softbox but the shaft was to large for the umbrella mount on the quadra. Does anyone know of a Apollo type softbox that will work with the quadra? I don't look forward to buying the elinchrom adapter at around $150 just to use another adapter at $50 to get a softbox on this light. Thanks in advance.

Couldn't you just put a regular umbrella adapter under the quadra and use that to hold your Apollo? You'd need a little brass thingy (forget what they're called) that fits in the top of the adapter and bottom of the quadra. Whole setup shouldn't be over $40 I think.

"Spigot."

I think this should work. The strobe head would be off center, but the rear-firing design of the Apollo and Apollo-style soft boxes helps to even out the light by the time it reaches the diffusion panel.

Elinchrom's shaft size is 7mm. If your are not going to buy the adapter at $100 (which I highly recommend) than I would look at the Elinchrom 41" Varistar umbrella kit. Really nice general purpose modifier. However, spend the dough on the adapter. It opens the Quadra to all kinda if great modifiers. Even the standard reflector with the translucent cap puts out nice light.
