Anybody using the Quick Setup Ricebowl? What's the verdict?

I found this video pretty informative:

I watched the videos, but it seemed like they were more like unboxing videos and he had not actually used the products yet. (Maybe you can chime in if you have since making the videos?)

I watched the video but was hoping Shom will open/close the modifier to show real life use. Maybe he did and I felt asleep, sorry Shom. I am being too critical here. Love your shots.

Opens and closes like an umbrella. A little stiffer as there's more work to do.

Wish I had known the quick version was coming when I bought my rb120 to be honest! I'm finding myself using the PCB 47" more because of ease of use so my rb120 was only used in the testing I did

Your post is right after mine. Not sure if you are referring to the one I posted:

https://youtu.be/JtyNM​7H884s (external link)

Or something from earlier.

In the one I posted, he shows and compares both versions. He discusses the difference in light quality. He discusses the difference in features between the quick setup and regular version (regular version has more capabilities, quick version is quicker to set up). He compares the light quality to metal reflectors. He then takes images of a mannequin with both modifiers and also with the reflectors he compared them to. He also makes a couple valuable points about managing the gear.

It may not show the umbrella opening of the modifier (I'm pretty sure that shows up elsewhere and it's pretty much like most that set up that way), but I would hardly describe it as an unboxing video :).

The reverse-mounting of strobe doesn't work on the quick version and the reflective material is, perhaps, slightly better on the version you have if I understood correctly. What you have is less quick but more versatile.

I don't have this (already own Elinchrom equivalents), but I find the option to mount the light both ways in my Elinchrom a valuable option. YMMV

I just use the Eli deflector.

Yes, love the light I get from my RB-120. Use it in both direct and reverse mount orientation. The set up/breakdown is challenging, so I cleared space in my workshop to leave it assembled and just stack other Octas and diffusers with it.
