Impact FBD-W-28 overview

  • 1Description

The 28" Impact White Folding Beauty Dish provides a solution for photographers who love the signature light quality of these modifiers, but are frustrated by the transport options available with traditional metal reflectors. This Impact beauty dish sets up in seconds while shooters with traditional reflectors are still pulling their dish units out of cumbersome cases.

Made for strobes, monolights and monolight-shaped LEDs, the beauty dish features a white interior for a soft quality of light with neutral color rendition. An integrated fiberglass frame and a metal inner deflector bounces the direct light output backwards and distributes it across the broad flat arc of the dish. If you want to soften the punchy look of the beauty dish further, you can simply slip on the included cap-style front diffuser.

A favorite of portrait and fashion shooters, beauty dishes are usually used quite close up, where the flattened light wraps around the subject while bringing out details in makeup and clothing. The octagonal shape renders natural looking catchlights in the eyes of the model that are not possible with rectangular softboxes. This small size is a life-saver in tight spaces and provides a bit more contrast than the larger versions. Pulled back at a distance, it's also great with the front diffuser off and used as an open reflector to maintain detail in group shots.

The Folding Beauty Dish comes with an Impact/Bowens S-Type adapter for the many brands that use this mount. It can be easily swapped out with adapters available for most major brands. A soft case is included.

    Impact FBD-W-28 reviews

    Folding Beauty Dish (White, 28") is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Construction - Great Beauty Dish Why am I giving this 3 stars? The construction is poor. I got it last year for Christmas (a gift to myself) because I just needed a beauty dish -like softbox that was collapsible. That and it was pretty cheap. I won't lie this gives off nice light using the various strobes and flash that I use, quantum and alien bees. I was changing it out and it slipped out of my hand and fell about a foot off the floor and I heard a snap. There was no weight on it and I look it was one of the arms just hung there. If these had been made of metal that would have not happened. Shame it is not. I only got one use out of it. Pictures included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOD YESSSSSS Even though I returned this beauty dish I must say the way it folds is unlike any other fold that ever folded the folds of another folded item while folding. To have such grace and poise this beauty dish breaks all barriers for the 28 beauty dishes. Although my needs required a larger beauty dish, as being why I opted to return this incredible dish of deliciousness. I hold this beauty dish high on my must buy again when my go-fund me for Unicorns and Polar Panda tee shirts is complete as I should have the necessary funds to allow this folding masterpiece to grace my studio once again once that is complete. *until then*

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good compromise of function and portability These folding beauty dishes don't precisely light like the old style metal ones. I miss the ability to grid them like you can with the old style. OTOH, it folds up nicely, comes with a diffuser and the common bowens style mount. One warning: The fiberglass ribs are under a lot of tension. If this falls or blows over, there's a good chance you break one of the ribs and there's no fixing that. I bought this unit to replace one that had blown over. Really wish there was some grid option.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from C+ Doesn't actually work as a beauty dish with certain heads. The angle of the walls isn't steep enough to catch the edge of the light, resulting in a lot of spill and no output. Quality is ok, not fantastic. Diffuser is probably the cheapest I have ever seen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable Portrait Light I use this for headshot-style portraits. It's much more portable than the softboxes I've been using and gives softer light with more wrap than a shoot-through umbrella.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken after maybe 10 uses I've only used this about 10 times. Took on a shoot last weekend and one of the plastic ribs inside snapped as we were opening it up. It's not made well enough. The plastic is weak. I wouldn't recommend this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light, easy setup I used the impact beauty dish with diffusion to test its lighting for a portrait shoot. I found it an easy set up with umbrella like construction. The light is a soft pretty light with the panel. I was not happy with the snaps to keep the dish expanded. They are bulky to work with. The beauty dish does not look attractive on the inside with its snaps taking up a good portion of the interior. I gave it a 4 since the light was good to work with as a octobox. I have not tried the beauty dish without the panel as of yet. .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The smaller of the collection. = I use this folding beauty dish for a quick setup and for travels when shooting with my Profoto D1 Air monolight(s) and bringing the actual Profoto beauty dish proves cumbersome for the particular occasion. This particular size is like a Small out of the three sizes they make, so I use it especially if I'm planning to have a smaller falloff as compared to the bigger sizes they have to offer, for more cropped-in shots. What I like about this folding beauty dish is that it's a tool for beautiful lighting that you can easily travel with and easily setup. It shapes light beautifully as a beauty dish does with a very easy set up and without having to lug around a large, metallic bowl that Captain America would probably use if it was made out of Vibranium/Adamantium. It comes with a carrying bag and a diffuser for the front (as it should), and a free mount for Bowens. I use Profoto, I just had to buy the Impact Beauty Dish Adapter for Profoto Flash Heads to make it fit and now I'm having fun. I will be honest and say that I think what could be useful is if it had a zippered opening on the side to assist the mounting process. For these larger beauty dishes it can be difficult for someone with less arm reach to mount this thing if they have to reach around. Luckily for me, that's not a problem. This is a size Small for this line of products, so most people should be fine. Overall, this a great addition to my travel kit. I have one of each size of these, along with one of each type of Westcott's 7' parabolic umbrellas, as well as their Rapid Box octaboxes for Profoto. =
