DIY strip, Mk iii-Stealth coated. (explored)

    Newer Older

    The major mod here is the colour and the hacked umbrella mount to make it soooo much more convenient .

    The top of the umbrella mount was removed and a barrel shaped piece of plastic cut away. This allowed me to put two bolts through to mount to the tube. I don't think this is a perfect solution, but it works for now.

      I'm so far behind I don't even understand what this is! Well, a light. But beyond that ...

      If you check out Lightenupandshoot these guys in Columbia use one. it is new and very convenient to take out on urban shoots - saves setting up brollies, softboxes etc. Never used one myself. newbie hobbiest. Gina x

      Wow. this one looks way better than the red ones... how did you do the transparent part?
      Isn't this rounded surface producing a different light than the flat ones? more spread?
      Please show a closup of the hacke dumbrella mount... looks decent.

      This looks seriously awesome.

      Any chance of a detailed set of instructions? What have you used to cap the end (opposite end from the flash)? What have you used for the diffusion strip? This looks different (better) than the red versions. Very cool!

      Oh, thank you ObiWan! I've been stalled on a mount and the simplicity of the umbrella adapter is obvious genius.

      This ROCKS, I need one :)

      Thanks for the post/inspiration!!

      Echoing AndrewDavis' questions, I'm not quite sure how to get the thing attached securely to a brollybracket. Am I missing a picture in the series that explains it?

    17. Silver Paul 51 months ago | reply

      I added a bit to the description for you Den :)
