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.

I found a Setti cheap (Dish, Profoto Speedring, ...

I found a Setti cheap (Dish, Profoto Speedring, and Diffusion Sock). So I'll still need a grid, and the Opal Diffuser. But just wondering... This one seems to have kind of a "creamy" white finish. I imagine it will produce a warmer color temp. Is that normal for a Setti or has this been painted/modified/refurbished? And also, 20 or 40 degree grid? And White, or Black?
Asked by: Ben
Back in January I purchased the entire line of Mola soft lights. I would have to say that the Demi and Setti are two favorites. First its hard to know about the interior color of the dish being it could be just old and age discolored or just stored badly between uses. If it turns out to be a bit too warm for your liking I think I would opt for a CC gel to knock it back some. With regard to grids? I prefer the black 20,.....while some say the white gives a nice soft edge which I think is contrary to using a grid to start with.....it also knocks back the contrast which I don't like one bit. {looks odd to me} Also, don't lose any sleep over the Opal diffuser disc. I have several and have yet to use them on any of my dishes. I like them with the perforated disc alone. I think once you get set up with this dish you'll love it as much as all Mola users do. They have a completely unique look and feel to them. Oh, and a tip for storage? Put them back in their plastic shipping bag and store on their face, not on their sides.

question

How would I set this with the Cheetah-Speed-Pro-Bracket-MKI? What would I need? to mount it?
Asked by: Sean
Totally agree with other answer. I would not recommend using a speed light with this. Invest in a strobe that has 360 light direction such as Profoto or Einstein.

question

If you has to choose between a Mola Setti or a Mola Demi for 3/4 portraits, which one would it be?
Asked by: Tom
When purchasing the Mola Setti beauty dish, my original intention was to use it on locations as I had seen other fashion photographers do. I debated between the Demi and the Setti for awhile and finally decided to go with the larger dish as I felt this would give me more versatility. I felt it would allow me to light single portrait as well as couples or siblings. When it arrived I was actually surprised at how large and heavy it was. This is perfect for in studio use but I found was impractical to take with me on location. I just found it to be too cumbersome to move around outdoors as I do not always shoot with an assistant. I have often thought it would have been nice to have purchased the smaller one which I think would be more portable and versatile for my needs. I think in the end it depends on what you will be using it for. If only used in studio I would go with the Setti. If you'd like to take it indoors and outdoors without an assistant I would consider the Demi.

question

Have you traveled on a plane with it? what are the actual measurements with the adapter? 28x ...? if you have flown with it, have you paid extra to carry it?
Asked by: Andres C.
I am a fashion photographer and have flown with this dish, since it can be hard to rent locally in many places. It is big and heavy and needs to be boomed out and sandbagged carefully, but the light is amazing and I have used it for many editorial projects. I have the Mola case, which was extremely expensive, but it is the only option for air travel and even around town you need it if you run the PAD and opal glass stacked, as I do. I have never paid extra baggage - a little flirtation goes a long way in this world!

question

Has anyone bought a cheap case for the Setti? Links?
Asked by: Sean
Check your local music store as they have some soft drum cases that should work well.

question

Mola setti How much weight?
Asked by: CHOI J.
The Setti is heavy, period. It attaches to the stand and the light hangs off the back freely. I use with an Einstein and works very well. Your meter will not read in front as the Setti is probably light steel, but will not bend or ding. To bring on location it is some work. That said, the light is just beautiful. It will give you harder shadows and a crisp look for fabrics and hair, but the skin is smooth and forgiving like a BD. I have used for tight shots but it shines when using as a key light 15-20 feet back. Worth the investment. I own 3 Molas.

question

Does it comes with Opal Diffusion Glass ?
Asked by: Anonymous
No it doesn't come included you have to purchase the opal glass separate along with the opal glass stabilizing ring. Also you will need to purchase the speed ring attachment that works with your lighting equipment. Hope this helps. It's an awesome light diffuser!! Enjoy:)
