Mola Setti Overview

The patented design of the Mola Setti Soft Lite Reflector captures and focuses light with maximum efficiency. It is shaped to intercept all paths of light, no matter which direction they leave the flash tube, and redirects them toward the subject. This is a big improvement on most square boxlights which can only focus a portion of the light available.

This is the Setti Soft Lite 28" model with a white reflective surface. Its size is perfect for portraits and mounts to your strobe head via your Chimera, Photoflex, or other brand speed ring, available separately.

The Setti's deep narrow profile increases contrast and delivers a directional quality which is perfect for black and white as well as color images which require a noticeably distinct edge.
This reflector requires the adapter plate from your Chimera, Photoflex, or other brand of speed ring, to fit your light fixture.

Mola Setti Reviews

My favorite modifier, no contest!

This light is my key in every scenario it makes sense because I simply love the light created. I used to think I needed more dynamic range or needed to do more retouching to have the quality of light/consistency in skin tone in portraits that I was striving for, but after using this light for a few months now I know for sure all I needed to get what I wanted was a better lighting modifier! I use it most often with the P.A.D. and Opal diffuser stacked, and if the specular highlight is too bright for my liking the diffuser fixes the issue in most cases. This modifier both in shape and light quality is like the fusion of a beauty dish and parabolic softbox - it is contradicting in the way it is soft yet full of contrast with a dramatic fall off. There's only one problem I have with this light - now that I know how great it is, I can't help but want more Molas!

Clean Controlled Beauty Light

Assembly was straightforward with the video and included paper instructions. One hour to assemble. New mount attaches to 5/8 pin or 1-1/8 receptacle - nice! Fit and Finish are top notch with easy adjustment that tighten securely. This is important with a heavier modifier. Works well with Profoto speedring locking the flash head in tight. Works with protruding flash tube flash heads or flat front lights when used with the optional diffusion glass. Clean controlled beauty light with exceptional qualities. Perfect for an individual portrait or a couple.  The lighting produced by the Setti is so unique and beautiful, no other modifier matches it.

The Good = Light, The Bad = Price, The Ugly = The assembly

In terms of lighting I do believe this is THE BEST product I've ever used. Believe the hype it's everything you heard it is. The price is a bit steep but fair enough. Delivery could be an issue at times as they're in high demand. I absolutely despise the whole assembly process and I'm the guy who loves assembling IKEA furniture. There is no manual (there was a CD, really MOLA? A CD?). I checked multiple times the screw holes just didn't align by any means. I assembled it by half tightening some and did I mention the speed ring is extra $60 odd? For the price we pay this should just come assembled.

I’ve owned them all except Rayo. This is the best a beast. I use it with black grid. Remember to use a frosted dome otherwise you will not use the dish properly...

Stunning

One of those jaw dropping moments when taking a closer look at the pics of my first shoot with this modifier. The color on the skin and the beautiful fall-off is just gorgeous. I think I have a lot of experimenting still to do with this beauty dish, but so far I live the depth and the special shimmer it enveloped my model in. So far so good. P.s. Putting the whole thing together is like building an Ikea cupboard. Frustrating with some swearing involved. I would pay actual money for this thing to come pre-assembled, hence only 4 stars.

A TRUE Beauty Dish..I was a skeptik..now I am believer!

Well, I have had other beauty dishes from metal ones to portables from Fotodiox, Westcott, Profoto, etc. Always though they were about the same so I kept the Westcott Joel Grimes as it was easy to setup and very portable. A local was selling this Mola Setti for which I was always curious about. Turns out she wanted to sell it as she works on her own and needed something easier to handle, the Westcott BD I owned is the one she wanted. So I went to do some comparison shots believing that Molas were all hype and myth but with my natural curiosity it was a test I had to perform. Well...after analyzing the photos, I traded my Westcott plus cash and now I am the Mola. The quality of the light, how it goes from highlights to shadows..it just blew me away! Here is one sample from my first photoshoot with it...as with most BDs, it shines when closer to the subject but as the model was a young girl I used it for a full body shot.

Okay dish for the price

It’s good but there are tons of modifiers out there and combined with the right strobe can produce amazing portraits as well. This Setti is heavy, not as easy to transport as foldable ones. The benefit to being solid and heavy though is it doesn’t get blown over by the wind.

B&h common...
