Is there a way to use a monopod to hold the thing?

Sure, just screw a female-threaded spigot (like those that come with most flash brackets) right onto the monopod and attach your light to that.

If you need more height get the Kacey Pole Adapter and screw it onto the end of a painters pole.

Don't White Lightnings have 250 watt modeling lamps. Not a good recipe with a plastic dish unless someone else knows differently. The Mola dish is worth every penny.


just don't turn the modeling lights up full blast. I keep mine at about 1/2 power and have never had a problem.

You're just speculating here. Hotlights are not recommended but a 250 watt modeling light with the Kacey dish is fine, according to the designer. And plastic doesn't absorb heat like metal so it won't get as hot as a Mola would.


That's not entirely accurate. Metal will dissipate hate and keep the lights running cooler than plastic will. Since the plastic is not as conductive as metal it will generate more heat inside the dish and consequently the flash itself.

Again, I've never had a problem with the einstein but I don't run the modeling lights at full power with my kacey dish.
