Rob, y'know they make white rubber inserts for the autopole feet so they won't leave those black rings on the ceiling.

Wait... I feel like I've missed something.

Awe thanks. Will have to call Adorama, and see if the speedring adapter they sell works with the 69" I have the Flashpoint II 600/900 watt strobes coming friday.

if you have an octo speedring for your strobe it should work on the 69"

i used the eli 69" with an alien bee speedring instead of the eli ring, no problem ;)

don't flame me please :lol:

Robert, I was referring to the 69" octo, or the 39 Deep. I need both in the toolkit

Yup, I know all about the rubber inserts for the Autopoles. I don't bother with them because the ceiling is always being bumped and marked by all sorts of things that move around the studio. I've gotten used to doing quick touchups of the ceiling about one every month or two and most of the Autopole setups are fixed and don't move once set up.

Really? I didn't know that.

I would imagine that even if you could use a third party speed ring with something like the 39" Deep Octa, the tension would be too great to actually manipulate and assemble, not to mention being next to impossible to disassemble.

the AB speedring is actually a little smaller of a diameter than the eli so no problem on the 69", the DO may be a different story

i'm sure you'll try one of your speedrings just to see compatability :lol:

It's not really complete until you put the strobella in there.

Robert, can you straighten out the Octas so that the Elinchrom letterings are on the side and right side up. It's driving my OC self crazy! LOL :lol: ;)

Yeah, me too :-)

This should be posted on the G&N forum. LMAO!

I like this idea.

A lot.

A fair point.

Haha!

It's funny, there was on a post on flickr i think recently, and instead of looking at the beautiful naked woman, we all looked at the lighting first. I cracked up on that, because it's both sad and true.

Oh yeah, I've been busted looking at pics of chicks on the computer because I'm looking at the light. I GUESS I should have noticed the lack of clothes, but I was looking at catchlights, light falloff, shadows, etc.

Sad but true...
