"***Speedlight adapter / elinchrom?!*** do they exist?"



I'm after a bracket/speedlight adapter I can use with my Nikon speedlights and directly mount elinchrom fit softboxes to. Does anyone know of anything that I can buy in the UK that suits my needs?

I can find lots of S-fit (bowens) speedlight brackets such as those given below, but nothing for Elinchrom. Of course I could buy one of these and then also buy a S-fit to Elinchrom ring but I don't want to add adpater to adapter etc. I want to keep it simple and have less to carry etc.

Hi Guy.

I Googled and found this.

http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=calumet%20bowens%20s-type%20speedlight%20adapter&source=web&cd=5&cad=rja&sqi=2&ved=0CDYQFjAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.smick.co.uk%2Fsonline%2Fstudio-accesssories%2Fvarious%2Fcat_47.html&ei=v01mUKG0GOK-yQHcu4CIBw&usg=AFQjCNE_YIjQyj3Ts44kX4nM5iknNVcpsw

About half way down the first page.
But maybe you have already seen this.

Just trying to help.

Thanks for your reply, but that is just an adapter that makes converts an s-fit adapter to elinchrom as per first link I included in my original posting. I'm after a speed light adapter that is already made for elinchrom fit products - i.e think of a lastolite strobo bracket but that fits elinchrom.
