This Impact 20" Beauty Dish Reflector Kit by B&H is comprised of the Impact 20" Beauty Dish with a deflector, diffusion sock and a honeycomb grid. The kit was put together to provide photographers with a creative means to augment this unique light shaping tool.

The Beauty Dish offers a bridge between a softbox and an umbrella that yields 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 included deflector that bounces the flash's direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward. This reflector renders natural-looking round catchlights in the subject's eyes rather than square or rectangular ones.

For a bit more control afix the provided grid to the Beauty Dish for increased directionality and spill light management. The grid gathers the light output into a large soft spot that allows you to create intricately lit background details and painterly effects.

Yet another kind of light is available by removing the grid and slipping on the Diffusion Sock. This gives the dish a wider angle of coverage and softer detail while it masks the deflector which might be seen in the catchlights in extreme closeups.



Note: The Beauty Dish requires separate purchase of an adapter for use.

        Comments about Impact 20" Beauty Dish Reflector Kit:

        I use this dish with an Einstein 640 WS. I used to have the original Paul C Buff white beauty dish but it was damaged while traveling. I replaced it with the later Buff beauty dish but I hated it because it felt cheap, I didn't like the flat rear panel and the deflector plate fixed on to the umbrella mount!So I opted for this Impact 20" - I would've gone for the 22" but it wasn't on sale and I'd rather have the extra $ than 2" of aluminum! Besides, the results really are marginal if you compare the 20" to the 22" but if you really think size matters just edge it an inch closer to your subject and nobody will know - just ask any Profoto beauty dish user!
