    Want to get strip box to use for fill or clamshell lighting....
    I don't own any strobes (due to being mobile/on location).
    All I am coming across are strip boxes like this: http://bit.ly/1MrnV2a,
    Any hint on where I can find a strip softbox that takes flashes instead?

    If you've used this stripbox and flash combo, please share your experience.

    Thanks a bunch

    A bit pricey but has everything you need and comes with a nice carry case. I threw a third small stand into the case to hold a reflector or umbrella. Also the small umbrella fit in the side pocket of the carry case as well. Full three stand kit easily portable.

    There are many videos showing this kit in use on the web.

    I had been using it with Nikon/Quantum gear, but just picked up the Cactus v6 and RF60 flash to compliment my FL-600r and Metz 58-af2 for my Oly setup. The system works great, though I haven't tried the Cactus with the 600r just yet.

    Any Bowens mount strip light modifier used with an electronic flashgun to Bowens mount adaptor woul do the job you ask.

    There are loads of electronic flashgun to softbox adaptor on eBay & Amazon, look for Godox as they make loads to fit most of the common makes of studio flash fitting soft boxes, Bowen, Elenchrom, Mini Light.

    Just match your chosen fitting and job done.
