      Great light, complicated adapter.

      By Lindsay

      from Greenville, SC

      Comments about Speedotron Beauty Dish" Reflector - 22:

      I purchased this with intentions of using my yongnuo flashes with it.I bought this dish because it was half the price of the Mola and the reviews seem to be pretty great. I didn't realize until after I received this dish that the adapter only works for speedotron lights [my fault].I spent hours searching for an adapter that would work with a Bowens ring and couldn't seem to find that. I even posted in a couple of photography forums for help on the matter. Eventually, I found that you can purchase a bracket from Kasey Enterprises. The only problem is, you have to force larger holes through your Speedo dish because the holes in the Kacey bracket are larger than the holes in the Speedotron dish. Also, the bracket costs $[$].So, after all of that I finally decided to just not buy the bracket and exchange my Speedotron dish for the Mola Demi. I'm waiting on the Mola to arrive now!Sorry for not having a review about the light quality, but it seems like there are plenty or reviews about that subject anyway! :] I this review is helpful to people looking for a dish.

        I have used all types of lighting equipment for product pictures and this is by far the best investment I have made. One light and this dish made it so much easier to take pictures of products and the end result is awesome. Highly recommended

            I had read a comment that this would fit my Alien Bee but it doesn't. (That's on me.) I built a nice doughnut shaped metal adapter plate (for about $6 and a trip to [...]) and it works great. [...]

              excellent light when using single person portrait (especially women). I notice a ring when doing test shots to a wall but you won't notice it on real subjects. it might bother some people but I didn't buy this to shot at walls. the grid is a must have.

                Comments about Speedotron Beauty Dish" Reflector - 22:

                I thought I had the best modifier a budget studio photographer could afford (Photek Softlighter II), but I was wrong. A few good recommendations on POTN convinced me to shell out the money for this Speedotron BD for my Genesis lights.

                The first few shots with this dish was amazing. I love the quality of light on this, especially for head & head/shoulder shots! It produces great contrast and really outlines the model's facial features and lines.

                I use my Softlighter II for an evenly lit and subtle beauty shot, but I find myself reaching for the Speedotron more and more.

                I haven't shot with the Mola Demi, but others have said that it is very comparable. Of course, I've seen shots done with the Mola Euro and nothing compares to that.

                Speedotron should make a Mola Euro competitor. I would buy that!

                    The light this modifier produces is just beautiful. Use it with my Alienbees and a single 580 EX II. I don't really have anything negative to say about it other than it's big and can't collapse down like a soft box.

                    Well, you should know what a beauty dish does, and this one does it very well. It is very well constructed, and with the right adapter can be used with just about any lights. I use Elinchrom monolights and with the Norman adapter is seems that it was made for my lights.

                    If you need a BD, just buy it, it is great.

                        Very similar design to Mola dishes but about 1/3 of the price, plus can be adapted to any make of a flash by swapping out the mounting ring (easy to do).

                        Modded mine by using a Mole/ Richardson Concave Reflector in place of the center diffusion (attach with aluminum tape) and then wrap Rosco Toughlux around the center posts. Eliminate the need for the DiffuserSox.

                        Excellent product that certainly lived up to my expectations in terms of getting the "glamour look" I was seeking. In between the hard regular reflector light and the softbox. Only minor criticism is the flimsy diffuser material used to cover the flash tube, otherwise it is very well made.
