Hey guys, couple weeks ago i've seen a image where a assistant is holding a strobe light and a octa attached to a monopod.

I have a outdoor shoot next monday and was wanting to do that instead of using a lightstand.

Which adapter do i need to be able to mount a Einstein onto a Feisol CF monopod?

Thanks much!

Probably a Pham set up shot. The one with the mom holding the pole?


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

The problem with monopods is that they don't really go up high enough and are not that fun to hold at the bottom end.
If you want to use a monopod anyway, you could use a simple umbrella adapter.

Other options include a painter's pole with the Kacey Pole Adapter (external link),
the Lastolite Long Extending Handle (external link) or the Elinchrom Handheld Boom Arm (external link).
