Comments about Profoto White Softlight "Beauty Dish" Reflector (20.5"):

The beauty dish is a must-have if love that middle point between hard light and soft light. It's ideal for fashion portraits and beauty photography. Quality is great, just a little prone to scratch in the back. I use it all the time with my D1's.

      Comments about Profoto White Softlight "Beauty Dish" Reflector (20.5"):

      I use all the time for business head shots and pageant head shots. I just LOVE the color I get. Now I do use with the diffusion glass, and a glass dome head on my D1....I kept adding them one at a time, but all 3 is the magic formula for me! I bought a cheaper sock and it changes the color, so I will end up purchasing the Profoto brand next.

        I use this product to take headshots.

        It's great because the punch is of the light is subdued w/ only a hint of specular highlight on shiny faces even w/out the optional sock.

        It's expensive.

          As like all profoto gear this piece of equipment is built like a tank. The build quality in 2nd to none. The beauty dish is so simple and easy to slip on a B1 head and just start shooting. Love using it in mixed lighting and portrait work.

            The light is phenomenal when coupled with Profoto B1's.

            My only criticism? Priced way too high. But, quality is what should be expected from a Profoto product.

            Without a doubt, Profoto offers great products.But this time, it's obvious, you pay for the quality, but you pay for the name as well. Their products are overpriced.4 Stars because the product is perfect, but when you open the box, you pull out a light weight reflector and you think about the $ you spent.I would recommend this product for the build quality, but if you are on a budget, i'm sure you can find a better option.

              Using on my Profoto D-1 lights. Attaches securely. You'll want a light stand that supports the added weight.

                The white paint on the inside of the reflector is very delicate and is easy to damage.
                If you are buying/using this with the D1, be sure to get the glass dome or your subject will end up with an undesirable dark spot in the center.

                    I use this beauty dish mainly for beauty shoots. The light falls from it very smoothly. The contrast between shadows and mid-tones is soft. No harsh spots or destructed details. Worth the price.

                    This is a must have modifier for anyone using Profoto equipment. The build is great and can take a 10ft fall with only minor chips on the interior white coating. If using with the D1's make sure you buy the glass dome otherwise you will be disappointed with the center dark spot. Picking up the 25 degree grid makes the light all the more useful when trying to control it and get ready to drop some dough on a Tenba softlight case for transporting it.

                            Comments about Profoto White Softlight "Beauty Dish" Reflector (20.5"):

                            Excellent build and beautiful light combine to make this a great addition to my lighting. I have used it with the 7B and Acute 2400 packs with great results. Well worth the investment.
