My experience with the Parabolix 35D

Thanks for sharing.

By the way the fully focused light pattern image at the bottom of the page was shot from what distance? (distance between camera and the front part of the parabolix)

I see, thanks.

So it is as I expected. Since the inner surface is not very reflective, it can't focus the light more parallel.
From what I see and read on their website, it is more like Eli rotalux inner surface. Cmiimw.
But does not mean its bad thing, I like my rotalux. It gives softer light than para :)

I was expecting a more dramatic different with the focused light, more a Para or even Mola Setti look but is not what I am seeing so I am rethinking if I should try it or not. :/
