    Hey Cafe!

    I have a couple of Dynophos softboxes and another for my smaller JTL 160. I am considering a purchase of some Alien Bee strobes. Can I use my existing softboxes, or will I have to buy new softboxes specifically for those strobes?

    Thank You for your help!

  2. I've never heard of the equipment you've mentioned, but you should e-mail Alien bees and ask. You may need to purchase an AB speedring, but I'm not sure...

    Keith and Dan thanks for all your help! Yeah, I purchased the Dynophos softboxes from amvona.com. I am gearing up to buy some Alien Bees, and knowing that I should look into a speedring makes alot of sense! I am going to e-mail them now.

    I have a set of Alien Bees with two stands and 2 umbrellas. I have only used them maybe three times, otherwise hardly used. I also have a Sekonic L-358 with the MT-32 radio control chip -- I bought at the same time I purchased the Bees. I have the box, manual and slip case for the light meter. Wires, zip cases and umbrella boxes for the Bee set. I thought I was going to get into studio work but hasn't really happened. I prefer casual shooting in natural light. Would you or anyone be interested?

    Hi C Reinhardt,

    I just emailed you with some questions. I might be interested in those lights. Feel free to either message me, or email @ roaringbear@gmail.com

    Thanks-
