Hi,

So after using speedlites for a while now, I decided to invest in some einestines from Paul c buff. I already own a beauty dish from calumet and I am wondering if anyone knows if it will fit or do I need some sort of adapter?

Thanks

Mark

show us a photo of the mount part of your dish so we can see if the mount is "interchangeable" or if the dish would require further mod. Please and thank you.

The key is if the back of your dish looks like this dish from Calumet: http://www.calumetphot​o.com …met_16_beauty_d​ish/cf0561 (external link)

If it does then you can get an adapter that will work with Einstein lights.

The back of the dish looks like this:

It will take an adapter. You want one for AB, WL and Balcar. This one: http://www.calumetphot​o.com …ar_white_lightn​ing/rd6215 (external link)

There are cheaper options available but may be hard to come by without doing web purchase with the attendant delays.

Thanks for the help, but unfortunitly that 1 isn't available in Ireland, well that I can find from calumet anyway, so ill have to do a bit of hunting for one. At least I know I can get one tho!
