Simple to use

By Dry dock davie

from Golden, CO

Comments about Elinchrom Reflector and Honeycomb Grid Set:

The change over from one size grid to another is simplicity itself, the handy little tag makes removal quick and means not having to handle the warm section of the grid.

Get this over the 7"

Cons

    • Controlling Light

    Comments about Elinchrom Reflector and Honeycomb Grid Set:

    I have the 7" reflector and they do make grids for those as well, but this kit is great. You could go the 7" route, but if you get the 8.25" you can also mix it in with the other accessories that work on those reflectors (barn doors, gel holder, etc.)

        Comments about Elinchrom Reflector and Honeycomb Grid Set:

        The grids could fit a bit more securely, so I ding it 1 star.

        Hard to say if these are any better than the compatible impact grids - but the price difference wasn't enough for me to want to have to worry about buying twice - Elinchrom is expensive, but the gear usually has subtle refinements that make it a pleasure to use.

        It delivers in that regard - essential modifiers that work well.

                Comments about Elinchrom Reflector and Honeycomb Grid Set:

                Used for portraits in a studio environment. These grids are easy to use and put the light where you want it to be provided that you have a light source up to the task as they do block a lot of light. They seem very much overpriced for what they really are.

                            I use this with the Style 500 BXRi Compact MonoLight. It attaches easily, and all items are of solid construction. I haven't had any problems with it, and really don't have any complaints. Well, it would be nice if it had a case or something to haul it around, but I'll figure something out.
