We have a showroom at our warehouse in West Yorkshire where you can see and try out our equipment before you buy. You're more than welcome to bring your camera along too. It would be helpful if you could ring to make an appointment, but an appointment isn't essential. Also, we have a number of distributors in different areas.Was this answer helpful?
Yes you can. All Lencarta lighting equipment have built in voltage stabilisers, and will automatically adjust to accept mains power of between 180-240 volts. For European customers on the continent, we supply power leads with euro-spec plugs, so there is no need for adapters. Just plug in and use!Was this answer helpful?
Softbox honeycombs work in much the same way as honeycombs made for reflectors - they control the spread of light and force it to travel in almost straight lines, so you will need one if you use the softbox when it is pointing towards the camera lens but will not need it if it is pointing away from the camera lens, although even when pointing away from the camera, honeycombs can still be useful because the restrict the spread of the light.Was this answer helpful?
Grids for 95cm Octa Softbox
This honeycomb grid attaches with hook and loop fastenings to the lip of our 95cm Octa folding softbox.
As with all honeycombs, there is some loss of light compared to the softbox without a honeycomb fitted, our tests showed this to be in the region of just 1 - 1.1 stops of light when used straight in front of the subject.
There is also a slight loss of softness when used straight in front of the subject, this is minimal when used at a distance but increases at closer distances because the honeycomb prevents light from the edges of the softbox from reaching the subject.
The honeycomb grid is extremely useful for controlling both light spill and for preventing lens flare, especially when used for backlighting, or rim lighting. The effect can be seen in the 360 photo, which shows the amount of light blocking that occurs at various angles.
