The Impact Fashion Beauty Dish Kit is an ideal choice for a main light for portraits, fashion, head shots or advertising work.
The VS-LCD400 Monolight has a digital readout and accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories such as the included Impact Beauty Dish. Power is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments, from full to 1/8 power over a 4 stop range. Its 150W modeling lamp can be set to proportional so that you can easily preview your lighting effects or adjusted manually to any light intensity that you wish. An air cushioned light stand provides protection from impact damage while adjusting its height.
The Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector provides a bridge between a softbox and an umbrella, yielding 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. For an even softer effect slip the included Diffuser Sock over the front of the Beauty Dish. The sock also masks hot spots that might be visible in reflective objects. The provided honeycomb grid offers yet another option, adding control and directionality to the light source while thwarting spill light that might otherwise compromise your background lighting.
Impact Digital Monolight 400W/s (120VAC)
You might be surprised at how many photo assignments you can handle with a compact, lightweight monolight like the Impact Digital Monolight 400W/s (120VAC). It's got 400w/s of power in an easily transportable package, and light output that can be varied in 1/10 stop stages over a 4-stop range, accessible through the digital readout. The 150W modeling light can be coupled to the flash, getting brighter or dimmer to match the actual light output, or independently set to the level you want. The monolight accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories. It also has a limited Auto Dump function, firing the strobe when you reset to a different power level (so the strobe is automatically set to the correct setting for the next flash). A built-in optical slave allows the monolight to be triggered using another flash. Perfect for portraits, small still-lifes, and much more.

Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector
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 Beauty Dish fits most major brands with the separate purchase of an adapter.
