Snook thanks for bringing this thread up...

I was quoted for combo:

Briese Focus focus 330 H / S with Generator 27,000 Euros (list price/retail)

they gave me some alternatives for 2x focus 77 S with Hensel Powerpacks...

they promised to come up with the best possible configuration for flash via Hensel or....
so we'll see....

Also I meant the Briese Focus deep parabolics...
The elinchrom or hensel's are nothing like those.
Does anybody know where you can buy the focus or similar umbrella/Para's?
I am talking about the ones from this thread that are all in the background..
here------>http://luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=28170

Even if you look in the back there is a tiny one about 1.5 ft in diameter but like 3 feet deep.
I am sure they cost and arm and a leg but would like to find out how much and if they sell them in the US or any knock-off's?
Thanks for any information. I want the smaller ones.

snook,
 i believe samys camera in LA is one of the few u.s based retailers that has a relationship with briese...they do not stock them, but they can get  you pricing info as well as order them.
regards

Yeah, it's so focused - the octa is totally diffused.

No, I got it from a friend that imports photographic equipment from China.. I have the HUGE Jumbo para  Umbrella. Not the Focus one.
I paid here like 1.100.000 +IVA
He orders it and you only have to pay upon arrival which is usually like 2 months more or less depending on when he does an order. I have bought a ton of stuff from him.
Every time he orders I buy something...:+}
Let me know and I can maybe let you see it.. Every one calls it the satellite for Direct TV when they are in my estudio..

I have been eye-balling the Para-FB from Broncolor quite awhile now but all of my strobes are Elinchrom. Now, I could just get over it and get myself the big Elinchrom Octa but I really like the Para FB a bit better.

I could also get some Broncolor strobes to go with it. Either way means making compromises that I yet do not want to make. Also considering it is quite a substantial investment, I am hesitant to maintain 2 types of strobe brands.

Is anyone familiar with either a 'knock-off' (hate that word) of the Para that has the same lighting characteristics or is there an adapter to be able to mount Elinchrom strobes in the Para FB?

I am using the Para 220, mostly with Bron-color lamp head or ring-light.  But when I rent it out, many users are using different lamp head, connected thru the universal adapter, as on all the light stands. The ring-light is a better choice, at least to me, because it is a little sharper, and it gives a very even full reflection while the regular lamp head does not produce such even reflection - but, does able to pan the lamp head to give different light effect.  I also have the Elinchrom Octa, but much preferred Para, it is far more flexible.
