        Using this reflector with a Gemini 400RX. Fits securely in the monolight, it produces a strong light that it is not too soft, but not too harsh either.

              Comments about Bowens Maxilite 8.0" Reflector, 65 Degrees:

              Maxilite is an excellent general purpose light modifyer for Bowens users. Available Grids and Barndoors make it simple to tighten and shape the light to one's needs.

              Personally, I like to use the Maxilite with Honeycomb Grids to create harder, contrasty light and rim lighting when needing more coverage than a Snoot attachment will offer.

              Additionally, it's great pairing up several Maxilites on Bowens heads for tighter control than is possible with a Softbox.

              I highly recommend Maxilite for general editorial, fashion, and portraiture work.
