Hi everyone, Well, it's that time when I start thinking about another Christmas present to myself. :smile: This year, it will be a decision between the 39" Deep Octa and a beauty dish! That decision will not be made easily, but here is what I need help with. Should I decide to get the beauty dish first... I know some (probably most) prefer the Speedotron beauty dishes over either of the Elinchrom offerings (mainly for the grid capability). Now, I haven't ruled out the Elinchrom dishes yet, but am looking for input as to what Speedotron dish to get, and how to make it fit on my Elinchrom strobes, should I decide to go that way. Alternately, if you're using one of the Elinchrom dishes, which one and why? Unfortunately, given where I live, I do not really have an option of renting one of these AFAIK, although I will try and look into that as well. I have done a search and read some threads, but I remember many more discussions about this some time ago (at which time I wasn't ready, so not interested, of course). So please, I'd love to hear any and all opinions, suggestions or links. Thanks in advance!
