The image of the one I said looks like the 53 makes it look flatter than a DO. How about some dimensions?

it's much flatter than the deep octa. (And I wish the damn autocorrect on my Mac would stop trying to make octa octal, whatever the heck that is.

In order to measure it I've gotta take it out again. Sheesh. The lengths I go to help my buddies. :lol: ;)

It is 53" wide so you are correct.

That Profoto B1 is looking pretty nice, but I think will just buy a head for my pack. Just have the acute ring flash kinda sucks. I really not a fan of ringflash, but I own 3 different brands now.

Do I even want to know you are talking about with Mark? Holes in speedrings?

Yeah, but it would be even funnier if the drilling was in the softbox itself. Good thing Mark isn't THAT funny! ;) :mrgreen:

Mark, are you getting out of studio lighting altogether? You said you're trying to amass a small fortune to get a 200-400mm but didn't respond to the question about whether you're going Profoto. At least I didn't see a direct response. Are you?

Just curious what it is the Elinchrom lights weren't doing for you that XXX will.

Well truth be told I was never into studio lighting except for buying Hensels, having buyers remorse, selling and getting Elis and then Quadras. Hardly ever used any of them. But I always want and want. Has nothing to do with need for me.
And yes I am intrigued by the B1 and may succumb.

Well, if you are/may be going Profoto, why not keep your Rotalux modifiers and get a Profoto Elinchrom adapter:

If you go that route, don't buy the adapter(s) new. I think I have two of them sitting here from when I owned Profoto Compacts.

Even better would be the Profoto style Rotalux rings:
