I just received this and an Alien Bee strobe. Question is about the Sock on this - I pull it over the strobe as far as I can. The opening on the sock is not quite large enough to entirely lay on the strobe casing, causing a small portion of the sock to be very close or touching the flash bulb. Should I be worried about a fire hazard? Anyone else using the Alien Bee with this? Thanks Very Much!
I do--I stretched out the cuff to pull the sock completely over the strobe casing, so the alienbee is entirely within the umbrella and diffuser, and the cuff is lossely around the umbrella st. It makes it a little fidgety to access the controls on the strobe, which are now completely behind the sock cuff but otherwise works fine. I would not use it with the strobe close to or touching the cuff--it seems dangerous and also I don't think it'd create the kind of light effect I want from this modifier.
