What you meant was that you missed the models more than the photographer. :-P

Question...

Would the Glow EZ Lock 20" deep softbox, without diffusion/diffuser plates installed, be any kind of comparable to the Colt 45/Snub 38/any other high-output reflector?

Shape and size is somewhat similar.

Second question...

Anyone have any experience with the AD-R12 long throw reflector for the AD400 Pro?

I'll be the test dummy. I have a Godox AD-R12 on the way for use in my AD400 Pro. Now it's just time to figure out if I can safely boom it a small amount on my Manfrotto 420 convertible boom stand (note - I do have sand bags and will be counterbalancing the weight.) From other BTS shots of high-output reflectors in use it seems like it's pretty common to boom the light and then shoot from underneath.

If not, I'm looking at the Savage Pro Duty drop stand with boom arm.

I will create a thread for the Godox AD-R12 for the AD400 Pro once I get a chance to really use it. But initial impressions are:

A) It's a fair bit smaller than I expected. It's only a little bigger than a 7" Bowens-mount standard reflector. It's also very light weight.

B) I got a good exposure on a quick test shot from 8 feet away, in HSS, ISO 100, 1/8000s...and f/8. (Edit - without moving my light, I switched to the AD400 Pro's standard reflector and had to open up to f/2.8 to get the same exposure.)

C) The light pattern thrown is wider than I expected it to be, but with a definite visible hotspot in the center that's maybe half the size of the overall light pattern.

Edit: regarding C - I'm dumb. I was looking at the light pattern thrown by the modeling light, which is going to have a shadow cast by the flash tube. My conclusion about the hotspot is not necessarily valid.

The Ad-R12 has similar size to the Snub 38, 9.5" vs 10.5". I got about 2 stops more light with 10.5" than the OEM 5" reflector. I am interested in your experience with Godox.

The first Question: It not the same light or the same throw as the colt45. Cheetahstand also sells the Max 20 which is pretty much the same as the Glow and I tested it with the Colt45.

Second Question:

The AD-R12 is the the same effect and output of the Cheetahstand Snub38 which has a shorter throw then the colt45. Its 65 degree reflector and the colt45 is a 45 degree reflector. The working distance is about 8 feet and closer. The colt45 is 14 feet and closer.

The 7" is not like the Ad-r12.

I wasn't trying to suggest that the 7" reflector's light was like the AD-R12; only that physically, the AD-R12 is not that much bigger.
