question

How do you attach the glass dome to the B1 head? Do you need to remove the frosted glass plate that comes with the strobe before attaching the dome?
Asked by: Bil Z.
Yes. But it wasn't easy the first time. I had to go to Samy's in LA. I have heard that you might want to use a 7' diffuser with it. What is your take on that? As you know the bulb is recessed and not extruded.

question

Will it work with B2 head?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sort-of... It won't fit in the usual way as the cover glass on the B2 is not removable. However you can hold it in place in front of the B2 using the mounting ring of the OCF grid/gel holder. It's not the most secure mounting though - you'd need to be careful about bumping it off - or just add some gaffer tape to keep it in place. This solution does preclude use of the built-in umbrella holder on the B2.

Any idea how many stops this takes out of the head?

It wont change the power as you have to remove the flat diffuser plate to install this. No stop loss. between the 2.

question

If I am using a zoom reflector on my B1, will this dome increase the reach of the light since it will be reflecting a little more from the sides or will the frosting decrease the reach?
Asked by: Frances P.
This will decrease the the reach. It is intended for the Beauty dish. Not for the Zoom reflector or Magnum reflector

question

Can this dome be used alone with effect, i.e., will it soften the light of the bare flash (spread the light and soften shadows) without an additional modifier? Thanks!
Asked by: David
Not really. I've never used it bare, but I always always always use it when I make use of the beautydish or a softbox, for example.
