Question Advice on buying flash equipment

Hi ,

I am a beginner at strobist work and have been using till now shoot through umbrellas and small modifiers.
I want to upgrade to using softboxes and octaboxes and want to use them with my speedlights.
Since i have the flash stands i just need to buy the softboxes and the adapters.
I saw these two products which fit my budget.

OUBO Speed Ring Stativschelle Halterung L fr: Amazon.de: Elektronik

Softbox DynaSun PRO WOS1004 96cm Octagon mit Universal: Amazon.de: Elektronik

But i am not sure if the adapter for the flash stand is compatible with the Octabox which has an universal mount.

Please suggest me whether i can use them together or do i need a separate adapter for the Octabox.

Re: Advice on buying flash equipment

Welcome to Pixalo Manas

You have to be very careful trying to match different speedlight kit from different makers. There is no way of telling it these components will fit together OK, and even if it does fit, will it be able to be fastened securely? The bracket description says that it has a Bowens mount and this is a bayonet fitting.

The safest way is to get the brackets and softboxes from the same maker such as Lastolite or other mainstram maker. Some of their softboxes come with brackets and you can usually buy them separately too.

The bracket looks like it will fit onto a stand OK presuming you have stands with standard fittings.
