Thanks Ralph, could you snap a pic on your phone to show me an example of a piece fitted to something like an octa? :)

Here's an end of a Photoflex rod going into the Bowens QR. Is this what you needed to see?

Ah, I was thinking I was in another thread:-P

Let me see what I can do about an ND gel image.

As far as ND filters, it's can still be an issue of knocking the flash power down to match ambient, but I'm not telling Scott anything he doesn't already know:lol:

Okay, this isn't an Eli octa, all my Elinchrom modifiers have the hooded diffusers installed, so I put the ND gels in after they are deployed (slip my hand with gel between a couple of the ribs), so I can't get a picture with the gel installed. But this should give you a basic idea of what I'm talking about.

True, but then again my 5D MkII has to have the worst viewfinder accuracy and focusing I've ever had the pleasure of using, adding an ND will see me throwing it down the stairs I'm sure. I tried using Live View today for manual focusing and it was sublime! If I could find a way of getting it to work with the Skyport, alongside an LCD loupe, plus a way of using aperture priority to view the image, but actually have it resort to Manual exposure automatically when I press the shutter, that would be killer!! In fact, I wonder if there's a camera that does that.............. ? :lol:

Thanks Ralph much appreciated!!

Jeez that looks like a pain?! Especially if the tape warms up and drops off mid shoot!?

I don't use modeling lights much, so not constant heat. It's actually pretty simple to implement, so no pain involved. Grip tape adheres a lot better. I'm lazy, so I wouldn't mess with it if it was to involved.;-)a

I would get a few alligator clips and some elastic and put a snaps or velcro on it and attach them to the robs.
