The question I guess is : what does omnidirectional means ?

As far as I'm concerned the only direct comparison I've been able to make is between a Profoto's Prohead and a D1 / B2 with a recessed tube. In that case the difference was visible in a 120x30cm stripbox. But vs an Elinchrom light ? Honestly I'm not that sure that a Quadra + adapter + Elinchrom speedring would send significantly more light to the side than a D1 given where the flash tube ends up with that combo. I don't know, but I'd rather have direct comparative tests.


Omnidirectional means the flash tube is exposed so that it can spread the light omnidirectionally.

Have you used the Quadra ? It's positioned like regular flash tubes once in the adapter, take a look from the side and you see it's pretty much flush to the edge.

By your logic, there would be a noticeable difference between the quadra head+adapter compared to fullsize heads. (depending on which head it can differ a few mm)

It's simple enough to measure with a spot meter, just like you can measure how the recessed tubes can't fill an entire Deep Umbrella i.e.

Omnidirectional means that it sends light in all directions. I don't know of any flash tube that's truly omnidirectional.

I was just singling out the Quadra since it's got no provision for a frosted dome for example, like the ELC (which could affect how light is sent inside a softbox). As you said it's flush with the speedring - and therefore it isn't that omnidirectional. Is the Quadra head (let's take out the deflector from the equation for now) on the left going to more evenly light a softbox than the B1 on the right here ? I don't know. It looks pretty much recessed to me as well ! I doubt that it's going to be that significant, or at least nowhere near the difference between a Profoto head with a recessed tube and a Pro or Acute head.

I don't really like Profoto's recessed tube design, but I have a hunch that people who are buying some other lights because of their apparently exposed tubes aren't quite getting what they think they're getting with these in some circumstances.

I think we both know what it means in this context no ? Naturally no flash spreads the light 360° :-)

By recessed im referring to the B1/B2/D1 etc. where the flash rube simply can't spread the light to the side. Take spot meter and put it 90° to your B2 head, and you can clearly measure the angle which the light spreads. Compare to a quadra head in adapter to a B1/B2 head, i think you can guess which head is gonna have more spreads to the side.

This is with a very similar design (both older), neither of them recessed like the B1/B2 so im not sure what your point is. Kind of odd they that didn't bother to shoot that with the front baffle off..

When i have the time ill do some comparisons, l already noticed the AD600E behaving differently both bare and in a softbox so ill try to compare the quadra to the ELC than as well.

Now off to the telly again to see Russia losing to the US in Junior World Cup (hockey) :-P

When I look at a Quadra head in its adapter, and then with the Elinchrom speedring on top of it, I don't feel like I'm in the presence of a design that can send that much light towards the side as well. I think it's fairly obvious in the comparison above : the whole of the flash tube sits behind the softbox's speedring. With the B1/B2/D1/D2, the flash tube sits right next to the frosted plate if you want to know. In the end the flash tube's position of both designs relative to the speedring probably isn't that different.

Point is very simple : the Elinchrom design might look like it isn't recessed, and yet in practice doesn't reach the same illumination evenness as the Compact 600. Basically, what I'm on about is that it isn't about an oversimplified binary "recessed / not recessed" thing.

Are you sure that's not mostly the softbox skewing the results?

I am not sure of anything. And that's exactly my point : a lot of people seem to have an opinion on Profoto's recessed flash tube design, but I feel that most of these opinions aren't based an particularly good comparative experience, and that a lot of rather tenuous assumptions are made. So please allow me to cast doubts (possibly unfounded) that Elinchrom's usual flash tube / mount / speedring design will be quite as convincing as a Pro / Acute / Compact head vs. Profoto's recessed flash tube design.

That said it's a 175cm Rotalux, so it should be optimised for Elinchrom's own lights, and I assume that it uses Elinchrom's own speedring. Besides it's the same softbox with both heads anyway. A Profoto Pro / Acute / Compact head can be positioned to have a much more exposed flash tube when inside a softbox than your typical Elinchrom, so it could be that. But as Paul found out with the AD600, some other factors could be at play. I don't know. And most people probably don't either :D.

Your top contender for omnidirectional flash tube is the Briese which resembles a much-longer Profoto StickLight and is designed to fill their parabolics. Of course, it's not a point source. :)

Looks good and has a handle to make some of us happy. The light stand mount seems much smaller than AD600, assume it fits nicely on Avenger and Mathews stands unlike AD200. I think this will make more folks move to Godox.

Dear CHAM_001,

You have so many good lighting manufacturers & products to choose from.
Only YOU can decide what is best for you & your applications. It is an individual value-equation.

The Profoto B1 & B1X are: real time-savers, time-savers, time-savers; YES time-savers!!!
[note: as are any similar featured products from other manufacturers such as Godox, etc.
(Jason Lanier wedding beach shoot with an Adorama/Flashpoint RL600B: https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=4zf_XPZnvXk (external link) 29:49 minute video)]

I opted & purchased Profoto products about a decade ago, for their consistent quality of light, durability & availability.
After almost a decade of use I have never had a problem – that piece of mind & durable reliability is worth a lot to me and the all important trust it provides my clients & subjects, particularly for wedding applications.

Also, remember: today everyone is a “photographer” (whatever that means nowadays), so most importantly invest in your most critical asset - YOU!
(which will withstand the test of time), as well as investing in your gear.
Equipment certainly helps, but your skill is the true market-differentiator…
For example-
Jerry Ghionis Photography Training [JGPT]: https://www.ghionis.co​m/ (external link)
-which in 2018 merges Ghionis’s previous Ice Society, etc. into this.
this maybe a valuable resource for concepts of:
-Short lighting
-Posing https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=kmi9TPQ57Mo (external link) (2:13:51 minute video)
-eliciting client Emotion in images (the secret ingredient!! i.e. emotion trumps technical in an image)
etc.
Ghionis, one of the many real masters in the photography industry. A true “photographer”.

Regarding equipment - I prefer to start where I want to end. That is why I prefer quality rather than quantity.
With “less is more” as a guiding principle.

Here is a suggestion for a great versatile, portable location-lightstand that will nicely support Profoto B1/B1X’s…
Matthews REVERSE STAND:
https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com …7486_Reverse_St​and_7.html (external link)
-a good balance of strength & also compactness.
(I tried but don’t like the Profoto 8ft lightstands – too wimpy; while marginally ok, they don’t feel strong enough. Just one opinion).

Obviously as you know, for large group portraits, or receptions etc., with any light you will need say 10ft, or 12ft lightstands, to avoid shadows on adjacent subjects/persons faces, etc.

Your selections of a Canon 5D mkIV, with 24-70 f2.8L mkII (& maybe a future 70-200 f2.8L IS mkII) and Profoto B1X combined with disciplined experience of practice, practice & practice, can position yourself well and create potentially stunning, memorable images.

Believe in yourself (& equipment choices) looking forward, not backwards…
Good luck on your exciting & unfolding photography adventure – HAPPY shooting!
Hope this may help you.

Just one view…

Mary

P.S.

In a studio setting, the Profoto (B1, B1X, D1, or D2) with the frosted-glass dome accessory (on say a beauty dish, or larger octabox, etc.) does help improve the light coverage. However, in a dynamic environment such as wedding applications (both inside & outside; formal’s, reception, or candid’s) - the techie side of you, nor your clients will never notice.
The Profoto’s monolight’s hallmark flat-front surface style enables you to “GET-IN and GET-OUT”, when time is of the essence, without having to fuss or worry about breaking equipment or exposed glass-elements. It is quite practical, for real-life dynamic applications, or adverse situations.

Regarding your concern about potential air-travel...

While everyone has to determine a system which works best for them & their applications, over the years, I have found for occasional air-travel destination-wedding applications (with respect & compliance for seemingly ever-changing airlines carry-on guidelines):
I utilize the following equipment configuration…

CARRY-ON “PERSONAL ITEM”- [holds 2 Profoto B1’s]

Profoto Bag S (aka formerly Double Case):

Instead of something like the
Profoto Bag M (Location Kit/Backpack):
https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com …23_backpack_m_f​or_b1.html (external link)
weight: 5.7lbs (2.6 kg)

Or,
Think Tank Photo Airport International:

Agreed - other people's experience also helps to assess the viability of any given direction.

Agreed - have been using Elinchrom for around 2 years now. Excellent quality - just fed-up with the setup times and the 'bulk'.

Also, remember: today everyone is a “photographer” (whatever that means nowadays), so most importantly invest in your most critical asset - YOU!

Agreed & Guilty - I too fall into the 'wannabe Tog' category. I have an idea of the kind of lighting effects I want to specialise in but am without that level of skill.

Regarding equipment - I prefer to start where I want to end. That is why I prefer quality rather than quantity.
With “less is more” as a guiding principle.
---
Agreed with one caveat - I experimented with a really cheap 3-light chinese-made system back in 2010. Using this kit allowed me to experiment and learn the basics/fundamentals.
Also, it allowed me to undertake Product Photography projects for numerous clients - back then. Now I am used to using quality products - alas this is 'costly' but necessary!

Portraits & 'glamour' have been my focus - more often as an Assistant/Helper for getting the lights setup perfectly. Just want to break-out and embark on my own journey now.
Luckily I have effectively avoided both Wedding & Reception photography. Just want a stream-lined kit that offers me the versatility & capability of fulfilling my requirements.



Believe in yourself (& equipment choices) looking forward, not backwards…
Good luck on your exciting & unfolding photography adventure – HAPPY shooting!
Hope this may help you.

Much appreciated advice Mary. Thank you so much for going to the trouble of including these useful Links - I will go through them all.

Agreed - the modifiers will be decisive. I will try and get to a lighting store here in London to demo some of the options.
I am not too bothered about the 'brand' here - just need them to work effectively. I like the results created using the snoot & grid combination. Will also look into this 'globe'.

Dear CHAM_001,

Glad you have a configuration which you find protects your equipment.
(I had one of the large Pelican too many years ago; while very protective & durable, found them a bit too bulky & heavy. Thought weight maybe a consideration for your air-travel mobility, hence the mention of just one of many other options). Again great you have a logistics solution that works for you.

A couple of further TIPS, I have learned & found over the years (with practice, practice & more practice) which you may already discovered, but thought I would just pass on just in case in the theme/interest of sharing, are as follows -

To keep a natural look (avoiding a fake-look/photoshop effect) and efficient work flow:
-usually follow the light, rather than fighting it. i.e. look for the direction of the natural light sources.
(this is quite important with most strobe lights, regardless of the manufacturer), I have found over the years
This important concept is quite well summarized in the following video by Jared Platt (Arizona photographer)…
Discover Light Shaping (Jared Platt):
https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=YlW6so8MlZ0 (external link) (3:57 minute video)
-do as much as possible within the camera/on-site i.e. do-it-right-the first-time approach; may sound old school but its effective & efficient!
(thus avoids hours in Lightroom/Photoshop in post, that way you are not a slave to the computer, nor your work)

For positioning of the subject AND for subtle-finessing of the strobe light, this below Manny Ortiz video sums it up well…
How to take AMAZING portraits in the harsh midday sun with a strobe (by Manny Ortiz):
https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=UQheFEilIao (external link) (5:03 minute video)

Like respected Neil van Niekerk (a New York/New Jersey photographer, a master of light), further examples of this light finessing/concept in action, can be found in this link of Kyle Cong (based in Vancouver, Canada):
https://www.youtube.co​m …O_5b9l0aWAdCmwD​iZw/videos (external link)
who keeps things simple too (i.e. with minimal equipment).

“Less is often more”. Live, simple & free!
i.e. a simple Profoto B1(or similar product from another manufacturer), or speedlight (& say Lastolite Tri-Grip 8in1 reflector/diffuser), are VERY versatile!

[Nifty compact, travel-friendly size Lastolite TriGrip 8in1 Reflector/Diffuser:
https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com …R3696_TriFlip_8​_in_1.html (external link)
with a unique subtle soft-gold & soft-silver for quality light & handle if solo-shooting without an assistant].


Cheers and again good luck in your photographic adventure (regardless of camera &/or lighting manufacturer choice).
Just one view…

Mary
