Randy, it also helps the rest of the group if you share your thoughts and feelings
Seriously... it does help the other Dlite users to know what modifiers people are using and potential problems with them.
no worries mate- just go shoot some more Lexi pix
Don't get me started dang you! The D-Lites just plain suck when it comes to build quality. Great light quailty but s*@ty build quality. I'm sure I told you in our emails, but a few weeks ago I was sitting on the ground and had the D-Lite slip out of my hand and it fell no more than a foot from my hand to the ground. It landed on the handle and busted the handle in 2 pieces and snapped it off the housing. I still haven't found one piece of the handle. Oh and it jarred the modeling light circuitry loose somehow also. Modeling light no longer works and the bulb is good. Probably a crappy cold solder joint let loose. If it had fallen from 6ft I'd think no biggie, my fault, but 1ft and thats being generous, come on. I could never recommend D-Lites to anyone ever again. BX's and better, sure I'd recommend them, but the D-Lites? No way Jose. OK I'm done.
