a mola dish is looking pretty tempting right now.

I've been tempted quite a few times. I'm just not mentally there yet. I suspect it will happen at some point.

I think sheldon got one from there. I am not 110% sure though.

I got one from him before, but he seems to have disappeared.

well just a received a call from Jerry Kacey himself and all is right now. Apparently the crack in the grid is what he called a "stress fracture" and is common in that size of grid. He said should it start falling apart to just give him a call and he will send me out a replacement. He also offered me a replacement BD or a partial refund b/c of the scratch. I took the money and couldn't be happier with the fast results of Kacey Enterprises and his customer service.

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

Jerry is a good guy to deal with, glad it was resolved for you :cool:

I got one from Nick in early December last year, no issues. I haven't had any contact with him since then though.

I emailed Nick re: shipping a Maxilite grid to Australia and never got a reply, also PM'd him on here.

I made up my mind and will get the Skyports eventually, but to save some money I'm going to use my 602's for a couple of weeks until the Quadra officially sells (if I can make myself let it go). I'm thinking Quadra as a Rimlight to the Ranger haha.

And here I am wanting a set up 602's to replace the skyports.

+1 to using Quadra as a rimlight.

Anyone here use ND filters for their strobes? Are there any recommendations as to what's considered the best bang for your buck? I'd like to get four of them. I'm not quite sure yet what strength I need.

'Cause I said so man! :cool: Ya suchus, uspakoisa (sp?).

Doesn't go low enough for f/11 and how close I have to put the lights with modifiers to the jewelry. Crazy because I sometimes wish I had more power for certain shots. For stacking shots I like to use f/11 for maximum sharpness.

what do you mean "low enough for f11"? Stacking shots... omg man, you are doing it the hard way :)))
Also... jewelry?

Use continuos light and longer (shorter) shutter speeds.

The lights are still too bright at their lowest settings for me to use f/11 for certain shots. I normally stack with f/18 but for some things I prefer f/11 if it only takes a few extra shots. I've done 19 shots for one piece before, lol.

Yes, jewelry man, it can be quite profitable, I just need to get my name out.

Eh, I already have a system set-up for strobes. I'll probably end up getting an ND filter for the camera I think.

i still dont get it. at ISO 50 and f11 something like 5Ws will barely register on camera if you have a mod on your light... anyway, you must know better and I rarely shoot product photography.
