The Grid Kit for OCF Flash Heads from Profoto gives you 3 different options to narrow to B2 and B1 Off Camera Flash Heads' beam width. The kit includes 10, 20 and 30 degree grids, a grid holder and a soft bag to hold it all. Ideal for isolating a subject while darkening a background, the grids have integrated gel clips and are also a good choice for use as a hair light or rim light. Part of a system, the stackable grids can also be used in conjunction with the OCF Barndoor and Snoot.

    Grid Kit for OCF Flash Heads is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE: No gel clip included Please beware: the key piece to securing any of Profoto's OCF gels is NOT included with this kit (which kinda goes against the definition of 'kit'). Additionally, and frustratingly, this same clip is currently not offered as an individual piece for purchase. After speaking with Profoto's customer service, they confirmed the only way to attain the 'gel attachment piece' is to purchase the Profoto OCF Starter Kit. ...that's right: You can buy the full sets of color correction gels & color effects gels, and/or the full OCF grid kit... but you will not get the ONE thin piece of plastic that will secure your gels to your flash head, unless you additionally purchase the Starter Kit (again, this critical piece is not offered for individual purchase). If you just want to use this as a grid, it works just fine. However, it's ironic that still labeled (on the grid mount itself) grid and gel holder-- which it cannot technically 'be'... unless you buy an additional OCF Starter Kit just for the gel attachment piece, alone.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from OCF Accessories Fit So Badly They Are Useless I can't believe that Profoto, the same company that makes the sophisticated B1 Air 500, has designed such an unbelievably poorly fitting set of accessories. I work as a location photographer and being able to set up quickly without cords is one of the pluses to the B1 system. When I try and put the grid holder on the head, I can't get them to fit, they are too tight. The same is true of the barndoors. They are useless. I work with a variety of assistants and it should not be an epic struggle to attach a simple accessory. Big time fail by Profoto. The softbox ring and zoom reflector attach with a rubber collar and latch. That system goes on and off easily. Profoto needs to go back to the drawing board for the OCF barndoors and grid and gel holder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Light Shaping Tool This grid kit from Profoto is excellent tool to have for the B1 head (Fits B2 as well). To change the grid, I find it easy just to take the grid holder off from the flash head and pop out the grid. I haven't try to take out the grid while the grid holder still on the flash head but, I think it might be difficult to do so. One thing to watch out for is that when you change the grid, don't put too much pressure on the honeycomb because it's made out of aluminium, it's very easy to bend them. The soft bag that came with this kit is about 5 in diameter and 2 in height (Same diameter as the CD/DVD disc). The soft bag is made out of canvas like cloth with padding to protect the kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For B2's, Perfect. B1's, not so much So they work great. Great build, quick to set up, and though people complain about flimsiness I have only seen 'lightweight and durable'; especially important if you mount this to a flash bracket like I do. As an accessory to the B2 this grid kit is perfect. The B1, not so much. It won't fit. At all. On the B2 it goes right on (snug, mind you, but in a reassuring, secure way). The B1, on the other hand, won't accept it. I've put some pretty good muscle behind this to the point that I'm afraid that though I touted its lightweight durability, I would break it or stress it beyond repair. So unless I'm doing something wrong- and I can't imagine what considering its essentially plug-and-play- your grid kit may or may not your B1 and will probably warp if not melt on your D1. Pros: Well built Durable but lightweight Does what a grid should do Cons: Won't fit B1's (at least mine, and I tried both) 4 star rating for incompatibility with items that are listed to be compatible.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to fit Ordered both, the Color Gel and the Grid kit, and was excited to give them a try on my B1s. Unfortunately the holder is near to impossible to fit. I was trying so hard to make it work but due to the extremely thin, cheap plastic it broke and gave me a significant cut on the hand. Really disappointed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fit b1 This absolutely does not fit my b1 lights. I'll have to do something to this to make it work as I don't feel that I have an option but I'll tell you that as it arrives it does not fit. I've already damaged one grid as I tried wrestling this onto the head, and as I'm sitting there with the $2k light between my knees trying to squeeze this on I nearly dropped the head. The same holds for my color filter kits. At this price point I'll be discussing this with both B&H and Profoto as there is something definitely wrong.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More great stuff from Profoto Easy to use but slightly annoying when you're first figuring out how they fit together but it takes less than 5 minutes to understand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 different styles of holder don't know if some had a� problem with the fit on the B1 heads due to it being a different style. the style with the wide gap fit really tight where as the smaller gap fit perfect. see picture for example. I am questioning on sending back due to the tight fit of the one holder. Again don't know if it is an error of manufacturer or just 2 different styles. 3 of the 4 holders I received has the same style.
