I have just bought a Elinchrom RX1200 and want to use my Bowens softboxes, beauty dish etc with it. I see that there are adpators available but before I buy one has anyone used them and can give me some feedback?

Hi Colin,
I bought the Elinchrom to Bowens adaptor to replace the Bowens softbox mount with the Elinchrom adaptor mount. It works perfectly on my Elinchrom flash units, but the piece of black material around the mount doesn't fit the Elinchrom mount properly. Not sure with the beauty dish.
Hope that makes sense.
Jon
