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 :D

Don't get me started dang you! :D 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. :rolleyes: 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. :p

and we know why you dropped the light so let's not start discussing your judgement when she was nekkid in front of you :)

But I do agree- the Dlite is not a robust housing. I can't afford BXs so I'll have to deal with my drappy Dlite build. BTW- I take a D4 with me on location and have yet to break the damn thing. One of my modeling lights separated the glass from the metal mount on the bulb, but no damage yet to the actual light. nowquitcherbitchin :)

LOL, I wish she would have been nekkid in front of me when I dropped it. At least I would have been able to laugh about it at the time. :D
