  • Comet / DynaLite 4040
    Comet - Attach as you would a reflector.

    Comet $90

    Dynalite 4040 $90 incl. shipping

  • DynaLite
    Dynalite - Catch the pair of "nutset" (without nylon screws) over the top of the Dynalite flash head's accessory "boss" (the bump around the housing that holds Dynalite's external reflectors, barndoors, etc.).†Press the "boss" or the adapter against the "boss" of the Dynalite housing.†Tighten and close the two nylon bolts behind that "boss" - the nylon bolts are used to avoid marring the flash head, you may substitute steel bolts, if desired.

    Universal $90 incl shipping

  • Elinchrom (Prolinca)
    Elinchrom (Prolinca) - Attach as you would a reflector and lock bayonet. Older flash heads may not have the locking bayonet which allows the Flash Ring to be unintentionally removed if rotated in the "wrong" direction perhaps "removing" (or breaking) the modeling lamp and flash tube at the same time. There has been an upgrade kit available to add this locking feature which we recommend.

  • Norman 200
    Norman 200 (Lumedyne, Quantum Qflash) - Attach as you would a reflector.†But as a caution against over loading the reflector mount, we provide a secondary mount for the Norman or Lumedyne stand adapters to transfer the weight of the lightbank to the ring and NOT to expect the reflector mount to hold a 5 lbs (2.3kg) lightbank.

    $110 incl. shipping

  • Norman LH2000 / LH4000
    Norman LH2000 / LH4000 (older metal heads) and LH2400 (newer "improved" plastic housing) - Attach to the LH2000 as you would a reflector except use the two bolt inserts instead of the Norman spring pins.†The LH2400 uses two metal clips to "bayonet" the reflectors into place.†This is too light-duty for lightbanks. Replace the upper Norman spring clip with the adaptor support bar: a) Remove the round handle and the spring clip from the top of the LH2400.†b) Position the support bar's "center" hole onto a threaded "nutserts" with the "holeless" end of the bar pressed against the adapter's flange. c) Press the adapter's "boss" (the bump around the inside of the adapter's opening) against the front of the flash head. d) Position the end hole of the support bar over the handle's threaded hole in the LH2400 and replace the handle through the support bar.

    $90 incl. shipping

  • Novatron (barebulb model)
    Novatron (barebulb model) - Attach as you would a reflector. Note on Standard Novatron Flash Head: Its deep fixed reflector is excellent with umbrellas, but inappropriate with lightbanks, especially with the Barebulb model available..

    $95 incl. shipping

  • Photogenic
    Photogenic (AE-10, Powerlight, StudioMax, etc.) - Attach as you would a reflector. The Photogenic design already allows full rotation, so you may wish to lock down the rotation of the Flash Ring by tightening its thumb nuts.

    $90 incl. shipping

  • Profoto
    Profoto - Attach as you would a reflector.

    $180 incl. shipping

  • Speedotron
    Speedotron (All Blackline and M5 Brownline) - Attach as you would a reflector. CAUTION: The Speedotron design lacks any bayonet lock as a result the Flash Ring may be unintentionally removed if rotated in the "wrong" direction perhaps "removing" (and breaking) the modeling lamp and flash tube at the same time. To reduce this problem, keep the flash ring/adapter adjusted loosely when rotating the lightbank and tighten the Speedotron bayonet posts. Note on the 202V focusable housing: CAUTION: position the flash tube as far as possible from the front diffusion and baffle of the Wafer and any other lightbank.†Remember, there is no focusing inside a light diffusion bank.

    $90 incl. shipping

Overview of Features: The new aluminum Plume Flash Ring is designed as an improved "universal" attachment for WAFER and most of our competition's light diffusion banks and soft boxes including Chimera, Photoflex, Calumet, Redwing, Bowens and Westcott offerings. The improvements are thinner profile, lighter weight and extra placements for ring based accessories. Our design not only provides the structural basis to these banks, but it also allows easily finger controlled tensioned rotation and quick change of inner adapters to a variety of manufacturers' flash head by means of various adapter rings. If we do not happen to produce a specific adapter, please inquire.

Description: The Plume Flash Ring consists of an outer ring, which will support the diffusion bank, and an inner flash head adapter ring, which mounts to your particular brand of flash "head" or housing. The outer ring and inner adapter ring are easily assembled and, generally, attach in the same way as your reflectors attach. (see specific notes below).

The outer ring features four primary (unthreaded) holes into which the lightbank's poles (or wands) are inserted.  These four holes are located adjacent to the four brass thumb nuts. Note that one of these four holes is marked with the word "I Concepts". This marked hole has a special tension release notch at a lesser angle than the other holes, making assembly and disassembly easier.  Use this notched hole LAST during assembly, and FIRST in disassembly.  (Note two other unthreaded holes are available for supporting the six wands of the  HexOval WAFERS.  Use one of these holes as the LAST (assembly) or FIRST (disassembly) with the HexOval models.)

Two threaded holes (1/4-20 and 3/8-16) are also provided on the outer ring for direct attachment to light stand adapters, attachment of interior flags or scrims or for mounting second and third flash heads to the lightbank.

The outer ring rotate on the inner adapter ring.  Adjust the ease of this rotation by changing the tension on one or all of the thumb nuts.

The inner adapter ring can be easily removed and exchanged with a different inner adapter ring specific to another brand of flash equipment
