Hey guys,
I am curious if any of you have the rotalux octa paired with the quadra. The rotalux is lighter than the other variants but I was still curious about flex with an unmodified adapter to the a-head quadra system. Also curious if anyone has paired the 27" beauty dish with the quadra, I couldn't find the weight on bhphoto as it would be heavier than the octa.

well after more research I am a bit more confident in the adapter. Now I am looking at a softbox that is a bit larger(like the 36x43) than the DO and deciding on my needs. I don't want it to big as I need something a bit more tight to compliment my umbrella setup.Plus the 39" DO seems like an option as well as the smaller version. I will also probably end up using the deflectors to mimic the beauty dish look which should be a sweet setup!
