Beauty dishes have been around a long time providing a unique mix of diffused light with a crisp edge. But the problem with these popular light-shaping tools was always transporting them, requiring outsized cumbersome cases. Chimera's Octa 2 Collapsible Beauty Dish changes all of that with a 24" lightweight source that folds up like a softbox.
You can use it in the classic mode with the included center bounce disc or without it for a harder bare bulb look. Add the included front diffuser and you've got a 2 foot OctaPlus lightbank with wrap-around light quality and circular catchlights. The 24" beauty dish uses standard OctaPlus speed rings or the Versi Octa speed ring for on-camera flash use.
