          Comments about Impact 27" Diffuser Sock:

          This is a very personal option. As many pros that you ask about a sock on a beauty dish you will get slightly different opinions. Still, the key is to have the light source very close to the model. This sock most definitely softens the light that comes from a beauty dish. Personally, I really like the quality of light that comes from my 27" beauty dish with this sock on. I use it all the time now. I also use a reflector opposite this beauty dish/diffuser sock combination. The sock fits the dish snugly and is a very valuable accessory.

          I use this product to soften the light from my LED lighting units and it works very well. Light is softer and more flattering. I have two of them and they fit well over my IKAN units.

            Comments about Impact 27" Diffuser Sock:

            It's a great addition to my light modifying kit. I use it a lot. I lonely give it 4/5 stars because I wish it didn't have a elastic band for attachment and a cord and cinch system instead.

            Double and triple check the size of your beauty dish in comparison to the sock!!!
