Bowens BW-1887 reviews

Maxilite 8.0" Reflector, 65 Degrees is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Modifyer for Bowens Users Maxilite is an excellent general purpose light modifyer for Bowens users. Available Grids and Barndoors make it simple to tighten and shape the light to one's needs. Personally, I like to use the Maxilite with Honeycomb Grids to create harder, contrasty light and rim lighting when needing more coverage than a Snoot attachment will offer. Additionally, it's great pairing up several Maxilites on Bowens heads for tighter control than is possible with a Softbox. I highly recommend Maxilite for general editorial, fashion, and portraiture work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 'go to' outdoor modifier OCD, yup that's me with light. This summer I have several outdoor dance shoots planned and in my normal way I've been obsessing about the light. But just the right modifier has escaped me up until today. I have been researching hard modifiers rather than octas, softboxes, umbrellas and such. You see where I shoot and what I love is wind. Moderate wind that makes hair blow back, wardrobe flow, all of those yummy facets in a photo that suits my shooting style. (Let's not talk about my portable smoke machine, I don't want to give any fire department fuel for my future trial) Wind anything more than a soft breeze plays havoc with soft modifiers, even when you use a voice activated light stand. (human) I've used beauty dishes before and sure they're OK, but man they are a pain to haul around and hold on a boom or light stand in the wind. Sure you can sandbag them, but my most hated duty is lugging I HATE LUGGING. And great locations are not right off the side of the road or a nice leisurely walk to the beach. Nope they're always a hike, a climb up and down, over water..yada yada yada you get the picture. And sure if I really have to I'll haul whatever I need to make the shot look like what's in my head. But if I don't have to. So after much research I found some reviews on the Bowens Maxlite 8 65 degree reflector. Only four reviews but almost all were five stars. The only four star review was by someone whose 'review' was one linenot much use. It's not a cheap reflector for an 8, but I thought what the heck I can try it and if I don't like it, they have a great return policy. So rather than having to read through all of my babble I will simply say I LOVE IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, even, not-too-soft light Using this reflector with a Gemini 400RX. Fits securely in the monolight, it produces a strong light that it is not too soft, but not too harsh either.
