Is there anyway to mount a Broncolor light on to this softbox?
Asked by: OZGUR DEVRIM
This light can be setup for direct and indirect light. As a direct there is no adapter for Broncolor. For a indirect you can use a Broncolor speedring with the mounting arm and then use a Broncolor light.

question

What speedring would be suitable to use with Paul C Buff Einstein strobes?
Asked by: Val
There is a separate mounting bracket that you will have to buy in fact, you won't even be able to set up this modifier without the bracket, and the metal rods are inserted into the holes in the mounting bracket and your light is attached to the bracket via the mount. The entire set up is then locked onto a light stand via the 5/8 receiver as part of the mounting bracket. The mounting bracket (also called a Yoke) has to bought separately and tailored specifically for the mount you choose to use in this case, you will need to buy the Westcott Zeppelin mounting yoke for Paul C Buff Balcar mount.
