I'm planning on expanding my lighting arsenal and was hoping to get some input from you guys.
I'm set on 2x Einsteins which leaves me about $750 to buy stands & light mods.
I want a Beauty Dish in white with grid(s). Should I go with PCB's stuff or are there any other/better/cheaper alternatives? Should I buy BD and grid(s) separate?
I want a rectangular Soft Box, thinking the 30x60 PCB with an egg crate. My thoughts on the size is that I can always mask it off to make the light source smaller. Is that not a good idea?
It looks like PCB soft boxes have a quick open/close mechanism as opposed to the old school rods/speed ring design. Are they of good quality? Are there any other soft boxes with similar design? Would you recommend any other brand I check out? Should I go with a smaller to begin with?
