Do any of you have examples of the light created by this modifier? I have seen Shom's photos, but I am hoping to see some other examples as well before I decide to pull the trigger on one.

Thanks in advance for sharing!

I can go from full fill light to spot just by moving the light closer of further away. The second image was testing it outside in full sun with no ND filter and I could turned the sky even darker with only a 360. If I shot in HSS I could have had the background out of focus.

I don't have any samples. I've been holding off, wondering if this modifier would fit my needs. You'll be glad to know that starting today (March 16) the Colt 45 is on sale for $88.88 as the DEAL OF THE DAY. Not that I'm trying to sway anyone.

You're work is absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for sharing. So excited to hear those were accomplished with a 360 since that is what I am using.

I'm definitely sold haha. I will definitely pick one up when it's on sale. Thank you for letting me know!

No
They do the same thing and I use both and don't really see any difference between the two in performance

Well, I may have to try one of them Colt 45's. I gotta figure out how to mount it to an Elinchrom though.

11" sounds pretty handy for hauling around.
