Hi Robert, yes this is the 3/4" PVC. I've already hacksawed a few 3/4" couplers and turned them into clips.
But I'll go check out those Photoflex clips.
A few minutes ago I finally pulled the trigger on an AB800. I'm hoping to get another one as a Christmas gift, so I didn't buy two at this time.
I was watching my Dean Collins DVD and saw him using a huge panel in the studio as a reflector, so I'll make another one and try and use that as my fill light for right now. Either that or one of my other flashes.
That's cool Randy. If you are making clips that work then you don't need the C-Clips but they are fairly inexpensive and convenient.IMAGE LINK: http://www.bhphotovideo.com …_Clips_for_Litepanel.html
I assume you're talking about the Collins on Basics DVD, or another from the FineLight series? Aren't they the greatest? I watched them over and over to really understand it all because as you've noticed he moves at light speed.
What you might want to do, since you're going to use large panels as reflectors, is to make an extra black and extra white. This way you can control the type of reflector by placing a black panel behind the white to prevent any transmission out the back, or you can add a second white panel that will allow some transmission and acts as a great reflector. It's a very good way to control the efficiency of the reflector.
