Why not just attach a softbox to my bracket using the new Kacey Universal SoftBox Ring?
My bracket is strong and can support even the largest of Boxes

I am bit confused. That gray metal speed ring, is that from AB? How does the bracket attach to it? I can see 2 screws but that would require holes in the speed ring. Or the speed ring is from you?

Wow, people are getting confused for no reason. It's pretty simple.

Jerry has a new product he's introducing. It's a speedring that has been fabricated and will come with hardware to work with his flash bracket. That same bracket can be used for his beauty dish.

I see another advantage to your setup. Most DIY speedlight softbox mods only attach to the bottom of the speedring with one bolt. Then the softbox would sag forward and down. This occurs with my Alzo mount. Since your setup bolts to the whole circumference of the speedring, it's held on more securely and the softbox will not sag. I think you may have created the perfect solution for speedlight softbox mounting. Nice.

Very nice. The light pattern is much more pleasing than the PCB dish.

I would love to see an image setup with the PCB dish like above except with the standard mount vs the Kacey BD mount, same pcb dish.


Gear- Why do you care? If my image is good it's good, if it sucks it sucks. It's most likely my own fault.

I would like to see the difference your mounting plate makes vs the standard one. Or is your mounting plate only for the speedotron and not the PCB dish? I thought I read on a forum somewhere that your mounting plate also got the flash tube out into the dish better on the PCB dish as well.

I think I just got it regarding my confusion. Being only into digital stills for less than two years, I only have two Elinchrom Rotolux Octoboxes and their 17" beauty dish. They have a completely different type of speed ring than what you show.

I'm trying to figure this out though because if I understand this right, I should have a lot of choices in softboxes with your adaptor so I'll check into something that will cross over between my Elinchrom in a small Octabox or Softbox. Thanks for your patience.

Kacey what size and model of softbox is it that you have shown in the photo above and does it have the choice of 2 diffusers? Thanks for the Paypal feedback.

Robert,

Sorry if this is obvious. If that speed ring is from Jerry then how do I attach my pgotoflex sofbox to it? I have to remove my photoflex speed ring and use this ring? This is causing my confusion?

How does this help compared to say the bracket you have to attach your SB?

Hi Bobby,

This is how the product works.

The component that the speed ring attaches to is a vertical adjustment plate that has a ring on it with mounting holes. The speed ring has been made with mounting holes that align to those on the plate.

To mount a Photoflex or any standard softbox you mount Jerry's speed ring to the vertical adjustment plate and then construct the softbox to that speed ring rather than the manufacturer's speed ring. Then the whole assembly attaches to Jerry's flash bracket with one wing nut and the height is adjusted to align the flash within the opening of the speed ring.
