Photek MCAR-14 reviews

Illuminata Insert Adapter Ring for Profoto is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't use it :( The flange was supposed to be 5-1/2 but it was actually 5-11/16 and therefore does not work with my Paul C. Buff folding softboxes. The tightness of the mount is easy enough to fix with a pair of needlenose pliers to tighten the spring clips.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless for Profoto lights Be very careful when ordering this adapter. It does not fit in any Profoto soft box outer ring assembly--to small. It is !/8 too large in diameter to fit the popular 4 x 6 expandable soft box from a major competitor in the market. The only reason why I did not return it, was that I was able to jury rig a Bogen back light reflector by grinding off the tabs and it is able to fit into the opening of the adapter. Since the light is placed facing up in the air, I do not have to worry about the reflector falling out of the ring. Otherwise, it is useless for Profoto equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does what it's supposed to and exactly as described Solid quality and exactly as described. The polished steel is solid and the Profoto mount fits well and clamps on the head exactly as it's supposed to. Great product and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Adapter with Modifications A machinist friend machined the outer ring diameter down to 5.490 inches - a perfect fit for Paul C Buff soft box modifiers. The clamp is very secure on a Profoto D2. Very solid set-up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not correct size for PCB I bought this in the hopes that it would adapt a Paul C Buff softbox to my Profoto B1's.� Too a gamble and lost... well for the time being... I will have to modify it because it is too big.� I will machine down the flange to the proper size for it to fit.� I feel like the tensioning system will work properly on the B1 to secure it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Einstein light shapers on Profoto, it takes a little work The adapter ring is about a 1/8" to 1/4" to large to adapt Einstein light modifiers, but with a grinder and a little skill and patience you can grind off the extra metal and have a perfect adapter in about a half hour. Just use the ring on an Einstein modifier as a template to mark the Photek insert adapter ring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheaper than ProFoto Great product that allows you to use virtually any other brand of modifier with your Profoto system providing you are capable of thinking outside the box... Don't buy it if you don't know which end of a screw driver to pick up~! lol (speaking figuratively of course, not literally).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job Wasn't a perfect fit, but after a bit of fiddling it works like a charm. As far as adapter rings go, this is the only model still in production that fits my unit, so thankfully it's well made.
