Best beauty dish I have used thus far. The size is perfect and the contrast the silver brings out in the photo is amazing!

I use this for sync photography as well as continuous key light. Great build, easy to work with, price is great considering the competition. Small and easy to travel with. Highly recommended

Okay made. You are paying extra for the Westcott brand!

Don't get me wrong! This dish is well made but not up to the standard you would expect spending this amount of money you shell out on this. Also, I would expect to add the adapter plate with this. Thie previous Bowen version was much better made... https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1247609-REG/westcott_1450_rapid_box_beauty_dish.html?fromDisList=y

First time using a Beauty Dish of any kind, wow! I compared off camera flash with pictures of the same model, my dogs ,with the Westcott Switch Beauty Dish ( 24' ), night and day, pardon the pun. I'm using speed lites with mine and the quick switch makes going from one dish to another smooth and easy. So excited to dive into the world of flash photography with these beauty dish's.

Nice light, easy to operate

This beauty dish is pricey compared to competitors, but it's worth it. Better construction, deeper for more directional light. Very easy to open and close

I used the beauty dish after shooting with the FJ400 alone. It softened the light over my subject so much. Will be using a lot more.

Some great things about this, but hinge failed at 3rd use

By Matthew

The first few times I used this, I was impressed on the quality of construction, the speed ring adapters which work well, and the overall quality of light. However, the way the supporting struts work is with a hinge in the middle, which allows the outer fabric to form and lock into a tight structure. The third time I used the product, one of the small metal inserts that hold these metal struts together came out, breaking the hinge. I'm now concerned this could start to happen with the other hinges over time. A shame, since this is a great product apart from this defect

Great Construction and Output

Loving this modifier! It's built really well and everything fits in so well between the actual dish and front diffusion fabric. Really enjoying the Switch functionality also - I've got mostly Godox/Flashpoint lights in my studio but I love being able to pop in a Profoto mount when I use a Stella Light. Makes me want to switch all my modifiers to Westcott Switch...

What is the angle of coverage?

What is the angle of coverage?
Asked by: Peter
Your resulting Beam angle is dependent on many factors including but not limited to the light source, the configuration with or without the plate, diffusion fabric and grid. Using an FJ400 which is designed to distribute the light evenly and the Beauty Dish with the deflector plate and diffusion front yields a beam angle of ~120°.
