Product Highlights
  • Soft but Crisp Light Quality
  • Offers Contrast and Texture
  • Natural Catchlights in Eyes
  • Optional Mounts for Most Studio Flash Brands

The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. This Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector lives up to its potential by offering a bridge between softboxes and umbrellas that yields a soft but crisp light with snappy contrast and a textural quality that flatters makeup on models and accentuates character in portrait subjects. The secret is a built-in deflector that bounces the flash's direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward. The Beauty Dish fits most major brands with the separate purchase of an adapter.

The Beauty Dish can also be used in combination with a diffuser sock or honeycomb grid, which allows for further modification of the light output.

Note! Beauty Dishes are not recommended for use with continues tungsten lights over 300 watts.

          Comments about Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector:

          Compared to pricing for other comparable beauty dishes, this one lacks nothing in quality! Considering that it came with a sock and a grid, one can't beat the value for this solidly build beauty dish. With only the additional purchase of an adapter for my Profoto B1, this is a fantastic piece of equipment!

                I own the D1 Airs and I bought this product instead of the Profoto equivalent. I thought it might be a little spotty because of my D1's built-in reflector (no glass dome), but i was pleasantly surprised. The dispersal of light is pretty even and I like pop i get from people's skin when i use it.

                        I purchased this Beauty dish for my powerlight photogenic strobes. I love the look and very happy with the quality of the product. I also purchased a speed ring for my Alien Bees. I used them on location for a wedding and this added the perfect touch for my brides images.

                            I am using it for portraiture and think its a great product for the price. It is much larger than I thought, although that is not a bad thing
