    I have received 2x Lastolite Ezybox II adaptors. The cost hard to stomach but it is what it is, and it can't be avoided.

    This is what I use for field use (on a Bowens mount AD600 manual that I previously bought).

    It's a little bulky to carry around to weddings, but it does the job really well.

    I already have a 120cm octa but would like a deep 90cm octa also - its just hard buying this stuff in Australia.

    Cheetah stand have the RB 90 which is cool but they dont ship to Australia.

    Its even hard getting affordable C stands here...

    No reason at all. I'm sure a generic one would do just fine.

    I also bought a snoot to use it for wedding reception speeches. That way the light doesn't light up the entire room, and just the speaker.

    I am going to snag 2 strip boxes with grids, and maybe a snoot. :thumbup: Already have an underutilised generic beauty dish from fotogenic in Silverwater. Its ok but the mount is sucky.

    Hey I only just found this thread now.
    Great deal! well done for being so organised, guys!
    For what it's worth I also bought some of the accessories and here are my toughts:
    * Godox H600B Bowens Mount - the extension head that allows you to keep the heavy part of the monolight low on your lighting stand, it's been really handy in windy unstable surfaces like beaches.
    * Godox PB-600 Portable Flash Bag - this bag fits the monolight and carries it well *IF* it's not connected to the H600B. the H600B plug is massive and you won't be able to close the bag when it's in use! tempted to cut most of the lid off to accommodate.

    I couldn't afford to buy the TTL version of the monolight, I really wished that I read this topic beforehand. I will be subscribing to this thread, if in future the memebrs who loved getting a flash would like to make another order, please mention it here and I will gladly jump on board :)

    its been shipped :)

    so I have no idea how customs works - does anyone know? Will they contact me when they have it and request the tax payment?

    Also, I've never used Sendle before, hopefully there arent any delays there - but just being transparent
