    Does Impact go with Elinchrom?

    Hi all
    Dumb question: will any brand of softbox (Bowens, Impact, whatever) lock into an Elinchrom flash head?
    I've only ever used Elinchrom gear all together, and am brand-stupid when it comes to mixing and matching.
    Oh and same for lightstands - does any brand work with any flash head?
    Thanks

    Definitely yes for the lightstands. They should be universal. As far as softboxes go, you just need to have a speed ring that matches your light.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Ah I see. Thankyou! So now I just have to match the softbox with the speedring that matches the flash, correct?

    Elinchrom and Bowens mounts are different/incompatible. As Greg says, you can often change the speedring mount on the softbox so that it matches your flash.
