Okay I will admit I did not read this whole post, so excuse me if the answer to my question is in here someplace. I have a AB800 with the Buff beauty dish and was wondering how you would mount the it ? The way the light mounts to the light stand limits the angel you can push the light down.

Several ways, if you have a swivel umbrella bracket on hand, you might see if that gets you enough clearance, otherwise...

These are cheap and easy, I wish the spigot end was open on both top and bottom so that you could have the light end up or down, but I use these (I have a couple) often.

Hi Ralph, I wish they were a bit stronger, both of mine have bent sideways from having my rim lights mounted on them at an angle (einsteins with 10x36" strips). For the OP's purpose, they should hold up fine.

my elinchrom lights and strips are so light weight it's not an issue:lol::lol::lol::lol: Actuall, I've not run into any bending issues, I'm curious to see a photo of you set up where you're having the bend take place.

I think it was the extra rubber bands he had to use to make sure the strip box stayed in place that pushed the weight limit of the arm. LOL :lol: :mrgreen:

Of course, you know I'm just jesting, right, Dave? ;) :D

Ralph, you know the 6" snap in extension bar that I recommended you buy? I have those attached to the autopoles that support the background system, via superclamps, then put the buff baby boomer on top of those in order to get a bit further from the BG, and to be able swivel them. This setup puts a lot more torsion on the end of the boomer. The e640's are tilted down, and over time, the boomers have bent. I'll send you a picture later.

Mount the open end on top of your light stand and insert the socket of your strobe onto the male end. Gets the dish out far enough from your light stand to get plenty of down ward angle without getting to far out from the light stand to be unstable. It is also small enough that it fits in the pocket of my beauty dish bag so that it always stays with the dish.
