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 27" 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 27" Beauty Dish Reflector:

        Used as key light for portrait photography. Went with 27" to use for full length portraits. Light provides coverage on standing human subject at about 3/4 length. Falloff occurs at about the thighs.

        It is heavy so make sure the light its attached to is strong enough to stay upright.

        Need the adaptor to attach to light. Make sure you get the right one for your kit.

            at a third the cost of a profoto dish, and of very nice build quality, would be hard to justify the profoto unit. high marks.

            Comments about Impact 27" Beauty Dish Reflector:

            I'm sure this will be ok but there wasn't anything in the info telling me I needed an adaptor for my light system (Novatron)...but I did. The extra part is now on order. I also ordered a sock. This is a good idea. If this is your first dish I would order a sock with your initial order.
