Ordered from the only place I could find it, opticsplanet.com but backordered apparently and the date keeps getting pushed back.

Anyone know where I can pick these up? Is there another product ID stateside I need to search for?

Thanks

There's a single Deflector available as well: http://www.elinchrom.c​om/products.php?p_id=2​35#content (external link) (The correct # seems to be 26305 though). I like the translucent most anyway, if you can get this easily it might be a good alternative to the full set.

I did notice that one as well, I'm mainly after the silver reflector. I'm attempting to light a white seamless with wide angle reflectors in a smaller area. Seems it works well for rob (https://photography-on-the.net …de+angle+reflec​tor&page=5) but need a silver reflector to even out the light, not sure if a diffuser would accomplish this or not. I don't even see they list the silver/gold combo anymore

Unfortunately, diffusion material or a diffusion sock won't accomplish the same thing. I'm going to try substituting the white translucent deflector for the silver to see how much of a difference it makes.

I had a chance to do some testing today. Bottom line is that there is no substitute for using the mini silver deflector in the wide angle reflector to achieve maximum coverage with the most even light possible. Unlike positioning the deflector in a beauty dish or inside a softbox, placing the deflector as close to the flash tube as possible gets you the most even light. I say as close as possible but I leave about 1 inch between the front of the modeling light and the inner surface of the concave deflector. Obviously, if you've got the longer modeling lights then you have to remove them in order to place the deflector.

Using the white translucent deflector for this application doesn't help or achieve the same effect at all.

The white translucent deflector is great for many other things but not for creating even background lighting with a wide angle reflector.

Thanks for testing that out Rob, I'm being told it's 10 days out now before they ship out my two sets of deflectors so fingers are crossed. Won't have the wide angle defelctors till Tuesday anyway

You know what would work good, get the translucent one and when you want silver, wrap crinkled aluminum foil over it- I've done this a lot with the gold one and it's a neat and dependable option.

Tony - Here is a list of Elinchrom US dealers:

http://elinchrom.com/d​istrib.php?agent=60 (external link)

Th 1st one on the list, Ace Camera has the deflector set at 699.95 out of stock - but then what looks to be an identical set for 99.99 available??? That might be worth a phone call. They don't all have searchable product databases on their website, But a few minutes with the phone has to be able to find it on this list! Good luck.

Been busy, but got another email from the place i ordered it that the order has been pushed out yet again!

So I called up another e-store and they were kind enough to call manfrotto and check on these for me as a drop ship option. He called back and explained that only 7 of these are on their way to the states and those 7 are already accounted for! To make it worse they don’t expect any more coming in for at least 2-3 months!!! Wow

Acephoto has one in stock (the $99.95 one, of course the same item for $69 is out of stock :p) and wont budge on the price as they say it’s the new pricing they are getting direct from the supplier (? Everyone else is still $61-$69, oh well - none of them seem to have it though haha). Thanks though, gonna poke around some more vendors and see if they have any

Crap I like this idea better. I spray painted mine :lol:


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

opticsplanet.com finally got their shipment in - if anyone was looking for these might want to give them a call (said they got 7 in)

It's pretty amazing how difficult it is to get these.

If people are really desperate I might be able to "redirect" a few from the dealer here - http://www.theflashcen​tre.com …-deflector-set-i5399.html (external link)
