The 40" 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. Used up close, this large size covers full length single or small group shots routinely seen in catalogs.

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's Folding Beauty Dish provides soft but crisp light ideal for groups, events or portrait photography

Compatibility

The beauty dish is compatible with many brands of monolight strobes, studio strobe heads, and monolight-style LED lights, and other dedicated speed rings are also available

Adaptable

If a beauty dish adapter is needed, one is easily installed, as this dish is designed so that no tools are needed for fast and simple operation

Portrait and Event Photography

Ideal for shooting portraits or events such as weddings, proms, or corporate events on location

Fast Setup and Breakdown

The beauty dish comes fully assembled with an integrated fiberglass frame that locks firmly into position in seconds and folds quickly to a compact size after the shoot

Lightweight

The light weight and compact size make transport effortless

Fiberglass Frame

The integrated and durable fiberglass frame and fabric construction help to prevent the folding beauty dish from losing its shape; even after bumps or impacts

Front Diffuser

For a softer lighting effect, the removable front diffuser is easily attached to the outer edge of the beauty dish

Carrying Case

The convenient fabric carrying case protects the beauty dish from dust and moisture during transport

There is no grid for the Impact Folding Beauty Dish (White, 40") BH #IMFBDW40 • MFR #FBD-W-40 unfortunately. The Westcott Switch Beauty Dish (24") BH #WE2520 • MFR #2520 does accept a grid which you would need to purchase separately as well as the mount to your light.

Yes it will, but only with a speedlight to Bowens Bracket. B&H number GOSZ1. Holds the strobe safely and without stressing the foot. This is how I use it.

question

I already have this modifier, is there anywhere I can buy just the outer white baffle?
Asked by: Phong
If you tried to reach the manufacturer with no success, next step is DIY. Translucent cloth cut abit larger and office clips. Not pretty but same effect.
