question

Will I be able to attach my 64 PLM to this unit?
Asked by: Anonymous
The PLM lists 8mm as the shaft size which is consistent with the size of the Westcott umbrellas. The Solix umbrella receptacle is designed to hold an 8mm Westcott umbrella shaft.

question

I'm wondering how powerful this will be in real-world use. Will it be able to compete with ambient daylight? Specs listed are 2100 lumens (I assume that's without any diffusion) and the icelight 2 is said to be 1740 lumens (diffused).. So, is it fair to assume the Solix will have a similar output to the icelight once it's diffused (either with cap or softbox)?I was hoping it would be MUCH brighter.. but maybe the technology just isn't there yet? (And maybe my assumptions are way off.. I hope so, to be honest!)
Asked by: Ryan
Ryan,2125 is the Lux not the lumens for the Solix. The Solix is almost 4 times brighter (2 stops) at 1 meter than the Icelight which has a Lux of 522 at 1 meter.

question

Can I use chimera soft boxes on this?Are the inbuilt holes for the soft box rods universal or do they only fit Westcott soft boxes?
Asked by: Stephen
I don't have a Chimera softbox, but the light comes with a builtin speed ring that has enough holes to support different types of soft box rods.
