Bulb is ordered from B&H

This whole thing is going to take over 5 weeks. 1 week waiting on the bulb 4 weeks due to elinchrom / C.H.R.I.S.

This looks to be about the size soldering iron you'll need.

Hey Leo

Long time no see! It's good to know you're still roaming around here.

Now, back to Mike, nice guys always get abuse, but we all know he has broad shoulders (wide, not woman like:lol:).

By the way, hows that grid for the 53" octa working, do you use it much and is it pretty light weight?

Thanks
Ralph

Hi, Ralph. Haven't been able to spend as much time here as I'd like these last few months but I do try to check in occasionally even if it's just a "hit and run", as it's been lately. Haven't really done much with photography either (other than taking the camera out for snap-shots). The good news is that I haven't had the urge to go out and buy the latest Canon bodies or Eli and Bron lighting gear lately, either. :lol:

Re the grid for the 53" Deep Octa, it's actually packed away right now. Truth is, it hasn't been out since I got the Broncolor Para.

Regarding the grid's weight, compared to the weight of the Octa, I'd say the grid is heavy and does tend to make the Deep Octa creep downward unless you tighten down the tilt head clamp on the strobe you're using with it a little more than you normally would. The creep probably wouldn't be that bad on the regular Octa as it's not as deep as the Deep Octa.

Why are you asking? Are you thinking of getting one for yourself?


...Leo

I figure one can't have enough grids:lol:
I really like how lightweight the Rotolux modifiers are. I wish Elinchrom offered more eggcrates though.

I will try down here first Scott, I have bullet connectors..... If I cant expect me with a strobe, if I can expect me to come hang out.

... Hang out??? Scott always has those smokin' models. If you're headed out to Apple Valley, you should at least do a shoot together !!!

So the new elinchrom service center (C.R.I.S. in AZ) quoted $329 to fix my strobe.
The bulb arced

Mike,
It looks to me like the (female) banana plug socket is still intact, and is still properly seated to the PCB. From the picture, it looks like you have some charred crap fused to the inside from when the loose (male) banana plug was arcing.

If you could polish out the inside of the socket with a fine dremel bit, you may only need to purchase the new flash tube, and you're back in business. What have you got to lose? See if you can polish out the fused debris, and then see if the flash tube from your other BXRi fits snugly and seats properly. If it does, you may have dodged an expensive bullet.
