A kacey pole adapter and a paint pole are amazing if you have a voice activated light stand. :D

Are the Softlighters measured across the back arch like an umbrella or by the front face diameter like a softbox. If they are measured across the arc, what are the face measurements of the 46" and 60"?

Thanks.

Wow...haven't had the SL out for a while...
Thought it was a little offset with the canon speed lights.
But tried it today with the quantum q flash...
WAY more off center.
Looks like a trip to the hardware store is I order.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Not sure about the quantum Q - but this thing works awesome for centering Canon Speedlights:

So I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on either this or the PLM setup. I'm using these with Einsteins. I'll be using these mostly for studio shots for full body work. Is there really much difference between the two?
