Impact FBD-W-34 overview

  • 1Description

The 34" 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. Even close up, this medium size covers head and shoulders admirably and works well for crisp looking, full length shots when pulled back.

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-34 reviews

    Folding Beauty Dish (White, 34") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Uneven light spread even with sock I am ok with this light modifier as an outdoor portrait fill light.� Very easy to set up and seems to have a durable build quality.� I tried this with both the Godox Ad200 bare bulb head and the flash head. It worked best with the bare bulb placed very close to the deflector.� But even with this best setup the modifier had a lot of fall off as you go towards the outer edge of the modifier. Even when using the outer sock it still was not an even light. Realistically you are getting more of a 25" performance from a 34" modifier. I am making it sound like I don't like this product but for the price it performs ok. Hope this helps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding The sheer engineering of this thing is crazy impressive to me. The way it opens and folds more quickly and easily than any soft box I've ever had. And so light! As if that wasn't enough, I used it on an all day recent lifestyle/jewelry/fashion type shoot as a single light source (in most of the shots) with my Baja B4 (which it fits with no adapter necessary) and the results were truly stunning IMHO. I think this dish and I are going to be very good friends!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool for Flash Photography I used the produce to photograph a hip-hop dancer and it was just the thing. I used it as the main light - Nikon Speedlight SB 910 and added one other light behind the subject.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beauty dish I bought this beauty dish with a tiny bit of trepidation, but it has come through with flying colours. I have been using it with my older Hensel Integra Pro studio strobes (1000w & 500w). This beauty dish worked very well for general portraits, and headshots. I used a reflector under the model's chin each time to bring up the shadows under the neck. I feel this beauty dish is well worth the price. The construction has been deemed somewhat fragile by some reviewers, but to me it seems sturdy. As long as you are not beating on it, it should last. I like the portability ad the carrying bag that comes with it. I agree that if you were to use this item outside that you would want to attach some velcro tabs for the diffusion panel so it does not blow away in a wind.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flawed on arrival. I wanted to like this product but as soon as I opened the beauty dish for use it was falling apart. There are three metal rods that attach the reflector plate to the main assembly. One of the screws that fastens the metal rod to the dish was missing. I later found the screw in the carrying bag. The other screws were very lose and would eventually fail as well. At the time of this review I returned the item and awaiting a store credit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is great! Most of my shooting is in the field. I didn't want to carry around a big metal dish. 34 inches takes up a lot of space in the car. This dish is solid, light-weight, and still casts a fantastic light spread. I can't speak much to durability just yet, but it seems like it will hold up well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for on the go Photographers I used to carry around my Mola DEMI 22 beauty dish for all my outdoor portraits, it was bulky and heavy and expensive. This Impact 34 folding beauty dish is a must have for those on the go outdoor portrait photographers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised, much heavier than expected It folds up and down easily, solid build... It is much heavier than I expected so I had to use a more sturdy light stand than I was planning to use as it's very front heavy. Other than that it works.
