Purple Reign

The new Rayo reflector and Fionna Quinn:
»I wanted this beauty shoot to have a darker but dramatic feeling and I wanted a direct contrasty, quite hard light source. The shadows would deep and crisp and there would be little spill onto the background.«

Fionna has added a diffused layer to the front of reflector to slightly soften the overall look without distorting the true effect of the reflector. The Rayo was designed not to use our standard diffusion material as it would compromise the directional quality we were after. Using different fabrics as well as the slightest amount of diffusion can make the light just right. Sometimes the slightest amount of the right material will be all it needs. We have found these products by Lee to be very useful.





Kase-D: new Mola Demi Case

We are excited to announce the new arrival of our very own Mola Kase-D carry case for the 22″ Mola Demi!

This carry bag is constructed of Dupont Cordura, with room for your speedring, 2 grids and the 22″ Mola Demi. The case is reinforced with padding to protect your Mola Softlight. Further details are available here on our website –

The Kase-D is now listed at B&H for purchase. We will have a Kase coming out for the 28″ Setti shortly.


Mola product: Mola Quadra Speedring

Mola is excited to release a new dedicated speeding for the Elinchrom 400w Quadra lighting system. No longer do you need to use an Elinchrom speeding and the Elinchrom RQ-to-EL adapter. This new speedring will ensure the quadra’s flashtube will sit deep into any of the Mola range, making sure you get the most out of your Mola + Quadra combo.

and the new speeding with the elinchrom quadra mounted on a mola (compression mounting system)

We have tested the Elinchrom Quadra A head and the 22″ Mola Demi and it does hold well. (the demi is the only mola which will require the light head to support its own weight, the rest have their own integrated handles)
That said, it wouldn’t take a lot to bend the Quadra head as Elinchrom have made it out of plastic. If you are keen to use the Quadra head + demi outdoors in windy conditions, we suggest you also pickup the Mola Lumi bracket so the weight is taken off the Quadra head itself.
This not and issue with any of the other mola reflectors.

stock of this new speeding should be rolling into B&H etc around the end of October.

HoneyGrids offers Mola grids

Recently we released the Mola FlxGrid for the 22″ Demi which are currently available for purchase from Adorama and B&H or directly from Mola. The Flxgrid white will be available mid August.

We are excited to announce the new 25 and 45 degree grids for all of Mola’s beauty dishes courtesy of HoneyGrids. HoneyGrids are the only polycarbonate grid that are CUSTOM made for Mola.

Like the FlxGrids we have extensively tested the HoneyGrids for their rigiditiy, mounting and ability to cope with high temperatures. The grids are created to fit snugly inside the recessed outer lip of the dish and secured with velcro fasteners. The grids have an aluminum channel around the grid which adds strength and protection to the edges.

We tested the 28″ Setti Silver + HoneyGrid combo with a Joker 800 from K 5600 HMI lighting to test for temperature handling. The heat and light generated from these units is substantially higher than the modelling lights you would find on studio strobes. The tubular polycarbonate construction had no problem taking the heat!

The new grids can be ordered directly via HoneyGrids –
