and I forgot: a photog I know got his briese strobe adapted to his balcar generators so he didn't have to buy a briese generator (which I totally dislike by the way). I don't know if briese does that or if he got it custom made by some tech, but it is possible... so maybe you could still use your elinchrom packs, just get the focus, head and flashtube.
Balcar used to provide Briese to Balcar adapters for its Nexus generators.
However, Balcar no longer provides this adapter for its latest B, T and F generators which use rectangular connectors.
Briese's generators aren't its strong suit. You get Full or One-Quarter power out of its A and B sockets respectively with one head and Three-Quarter and One-Quarter power if you use two heads . Briese used to provide adapters for other manufacturers' generators and then abruptly stopped providing them last year. So, it is possible to have adapters for them but I have yet to find a techncian who would agree to do it. Tried Flash Clinic in NYC. Nada.
If you wish to use a Briese light modifier today with flash, you are stuck with using the Briese Yellow Cubes.
You may also use the Briese with the Hensel Porty 1200J generator with its 6 F-stop adjustability. But you are stuck with its slow flash duration and long recycling time.
I don't understand why Herr Werner Briese does not update his Yellow Cubes or have someone like Hensel, elinchrom or Profoto OEM them for him. If he would do that, he would find greater acceptance of his products. The Yellow Cubes are stuck in the 70s.
If you wish to see Herr Briese go tomato-red in the face, just mention BRONCOLOR
