I am in really need of some help. I just bought the big octa, 1.9 big octa and I was testing it last night.
I ordered the adapter for profoto so I can use my monolights with the big octa.
Put it together is a breeze, it is so big but so easy to assemble. When I installed the diffuser and turn on the light, I notice a dark spot in the center. I have seen many pictures and videos for the big octa, but I have never seen this before. I know the dark spot is the back of the light blocking the light.
I tried with multiple settings and it is a constant 1 stop difference from any point from the big octa compared to the small dark center. I can work around that, placing the model in different places, but It is a way to avoid this dark spot. Fix this?
I saw a youtube demo about the big octa and the guy is using elicnchrom 600 Rx http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yp9dzzZiM0, if you have this head, could you tell me the dimensions so I can compare with the profoto head. I am thinking the profoto is longer and casting the shadow.
Help!!! The big octa gives an amazing light and it is easy to work with. It just need to let your imagination fly and it is magic, but it has a center dark spot
