Some photos from the weekend, used AD360 and my trusty Diff ø70cm.
The model is Zienna Eve.


Nice captures

Prototype of what? Modeling light? Remote head? If it's remote head I like that design very much.

Scott,
This looks great. I like the way you've incorporated the umbrella mount option.
4 360 tubes around a large PLM center shaft or a big octa will be awesome.

Remote Head

I like it. I just wish it was shorter. I am worried it might be pushing center of light too deep into modifier which might not be issue for those working with big modifiers but for those that like using smaller modifiers to create certain moods it will be a problem.

Also, I wish cable was going down under 90 degree rather than straight, Less strain on the cable and attachment point, easier routing (just down the pole), plus it would not result in pushing deeper into modifier because it's bumping against diffuser.

Thinking further, if you put cable to exit somewhere in rear part going down under 90 degree and move mounting point to umbrella adapter toward middle that would allow for having bulb much closer to front of modifier in turn resulting in more even illumination (I think).

If I made it shorter the reflectors and other godox modifier would not fit on it and if I made the cable 90 you couldn't mount it on a umbrella bracket and would have to stick out the side.

Then don't make it shorter, just reposition mounting point toward middle. And if you offset mounting point to the left and cable to the right cable still should be able to go down without anything getting in a way. Right now you are positioning remote head mainly over the shaft as remote head is a tube. Instead make a hump on it and use that hump to give you needed clearance for cable and better use of backspace. You got initial design in good direction, all you need right now is little of refinement / optimization.

There is a 1/4 threaded hole in the center, just don't see in the image. So you want me to machine a whole new piece on a lathe? You know this is aluminum? The hump defeats the ability of sliding the modifiers and being able to fine tune the light like a profoto head.

I don't mind the input, but you might want to think more on how this remote head works and its functionality. If you look back you will see the large version with a different mounting setup.
