If I plan to do some full body shots as well, would it be best to go with the 4x6 and just cut back some of the light if needing less of it, or do you believe a 3x4 would be sufficient to start with as I would still need to buy the thing for using the Profoto softbox with my Einstein as well as the sync controller for my camera to controll the einstein.
Also, if you know and don't mind sharing, what would be needed to connect the profoto softbox to my einstein light?
would this be all that is needed to connect the light with the softbox?
The linked item (speed ring) looks correct, and you can make 3'x4' work full body with some flagging. I generally follow the buy-it-right-buy-it-once school of thought, and have owned the Chimera Medium SB and quick-release speed ring for the last decade. If you buy a SB for keeps, or intend to drive it hard, then the build quality and refurbishment options are a reason to pay the premium. But taking the cheap and disposable route is also valid. The Balcar mount used by Buff lights is feeble and I question the investment of a large and expensive SB from Profoto or Chimera. I originally chose Profoto lights because of the mount but, of course, pay dearly for the privilege. No free lunch, as they say.
