question

which lights fixtures does this fit? is there a certain size fixture diameter?
Asked by: Anonymous
Many lights can fit on to the Pancake Lantern Softbox. All that is needed is the correct speedring if one is available.The softbox in general is a regular 4 pole softbox. If you do have a specific light in mind it is best you contact us direct via chat or phone.

question

can i use this with 500 watts bare bulbs in standard socket?
Asked by: Valente
Yes, you can. You will probably need to adapt to a standard medium base bulb, as the pancakes are mogul based. Adapter is easy to find an inexpensive.

question

Can you use an Arri 650 with this unit?
Asked by: Todd M.
I think it would work but the fresnel beam would only cover 50% of the pancake. A bare bulb works better. I have a bi-color LED strip wrapped around a tube.
