As I frequently said before, shallow depth para curve is easier to achieve than the deep one.

I've never seen the Aputure light dome mini before you posted that so I thought I'd give it a try.

I know it's small but it seems strange they don't make an indirect mount for it as when used like a softbox the output is massively uneven thanks to creases in the reflective fabric (the diffuser is very taut though, more companies should 'borrow' the Broncolor design).

The "parabolic softbox" marketing is still in full force. Was kind of suprised that the photographer in this video is suggesting it as a Bron substitute...

Yes, my photos are using a CL360. The bulb extender needed to have 2 of its pins sanded down a bit to fit the CL360 socket. Everything else was perfect.

Old thread, I'll take a chance on that - which two pins? The large ones or the small ones?

For clarity, would that be the two small pins or the two larger ones?
