one strong enough to keep the SS at sync speed and open the aperture enough to get the selected DOF

assuming 1/250@f11 in full sun, a 5 stop ND will get you down to f2.8


f/11 --> f/8 --> f/5.6 --> F/4 --> F/2.8

Isn't that four stops?

Loving the 360!!! I think I may add a V850 to the mix and get rid of my speedlites and Elinchrom triggers and receivers

Are the led modelling domes any good?
I'm guessing you can't use any of its own modifiers as it looks like the modelling dome uses the same connecting point around the bulb but I can use it with a bowens speedlight ring Wich I already have, is it worth buying?
I've seen them on the cheetahstand website and there is qqsome already available in the UK but they don't have any vents in the plate, has anyone tried them? I think it will be worth the extra money through cheetahstand for a vented version.

For those of you using this light with a 60in shoot through umbrella, how are you mounting it? I assuming using the umbrella reflector, but not attaching it to the light head. That doesn't seem sturdy enough. I'd like to keep the light on axis with the umbrella shaft.

I use the godox Bowens and umbrella adapter. Comes in an Elinchrom mount variety too.

I'm guessing you can't use any of its modifiers as the modelling dome using there connection but with a bowens speedlight ring Wich I already have,

uh, what? not sure what you're saying.

the modeling light doesn't use the bowens mount. You put the modifier on the mount, then the light into the modifier, then the modeling light onto the light. You can take off the dome.

here is the same dome mount with the dome removed and a gel added. Octa is mounted via bowens.

i'm surprised the EU version doesn't have vents, but if you take off the dome it shouldn't matter.

Yeah it didnt make much sense did it, I've edited it now. If you take the dome of, does it still work well as a modelling lamp? I assumed the dome would help to spread the direct light of the led's and create a more accurate imitation of what the flash will produce.

You can take the dome off and you get about a stop more output. The dome is to protect the led and the driver when storing.

rick, inside a softbox i doubt you are going to notice a huge difference.

never thought of the protection factor. Does this use the same three tiny screws that the regular "mushroom" diffuser uses?

The protection factor of the dome also works for living objects eyes in front of the camera when using no diffuser.
