Profoto 101561 reviews

Glass Dome for D1 and B1 Monolights (Frosted) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected Utilizing the glass domes on the D1's helps many of the Profoto lighting modifiers perform more as expected (less hot spots on all soft boxes) A must for the longer 1x6 strip box and the beauty dish as well. The beauty dish has a much more pleasant and expected output with domes in place rather than utilizing the built in reflector of the D1's in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I use these on D1 heads to broaden the dispersion angle so that large softboxes are evenly filled. I don't find them necessary for small boxes. They are totally over priced, but there are no alternatives.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still on the fence ( giving it 3.5 stars ) Like others said, this should be included with every head and only $39 if not. Not using on a beauty dish ... only medium and large Chimera boxes and Profoto 1x4 strips. All of us old film shooters were shocked the B1 and D1 flat glass panel was the ' standard ' configuration straight out of the box. I finally got around to buying a dome and testing outputs with and without. There is still no comparison when using this over a pure bare bulb head such Profoto's Pro B head or other manufactures like Speedotron. With my Profoto B1, I measured a 1 and 4/10's of a stop difference between the center and far outer corners of their 1x4 strip ( and yes ... I had the baffle in there too ) without this frosted dome. With the dome it's a little better but still around 8/10's of a stop hotter in the center. On my Speedotron and Pro B heads, I measured it around 4/10's of a stop ( a full stop difference better) !!! You can also see how harsh the center hot spot is with the naked eye with just the modeling light without the dome and a little better with. This dome I would say is 1/2 as effective as using a pure bare bulb head. I know some will say this. The B1 modeling light is back behind the tube so using the modeling light is not an actually representation of the tubes true spread across the panel. Just test it yourself and you'll sell what I mean. The distance between the speedring and outer panel on my large Chimera box is 30 inches so with the test image I attached here, I placed the D1's tip of the dome 30 inches from the wall. I'm thinking about putting a piece of foil at the tip with tiny holes to help further reduce the hotspot. Real pros understand what I'm talking about here. The inside walls of the boxes and strips need more light before hitting the front panel and baffle. Profoto I'm sure doesn't want more loss out of the dome so this is what they came up with. A bare bulb would have nuked my floor in the sample test shot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for D1 Monolights! I am not going to rate this poorly because Profoto decided not to include this standard with their expensive monolights. If you have the D1 monolights, buy this to make the light more even in softboxes, Magnum reflectors and beauty dishes. It is very well made and will last a lifetime!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Increases Light Spread, but Cumbersome The quality is superb, the price is ridiculous, but it is ProFoto. This should have been included with the D1 heads. It does what it is supposed to do - spreads out the light more, especially in a beauty dish. I haven't done scientific comparisons, but the quality of the light is more pleasing. It is a pain, however. You have to remove for travel (I don't think there are protective caps) and either replace the frosted cover or leave the flash tube and modeling lights exposed. Fiddling with the clips to get the frosted cover on and off is tedious and requires a slim screwdriver. Leaving the bulbs exposed carries some risk. Would have given four stars if the price was 40% lower. Can't give five stars to an accessory that really just fixes a design flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile upgrade Definitely makes the light emitted from a B1 softer particularly when using anything other than a beauty dish or other modifier that lacks a deflector. Double diffusion not enough to satisfactorilly quell specular hot spot on a face for example as those found in most better octas and soft boxes. Caveat is that mounting of the domes eliminates the portability factor when using the otherwise beautifully made/ designed two-location kit bag with everything that comes with it. They are tricky to install/ remove as there aren't any specific instructions that I've found. I found that floss of all things is useful in gently pulling one of the springs back to assist in installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works as advertised when using the larger profoto modifiers, this is required. be careful with overheating, this can crack the dome... make sure you leave some ventilation with prolonged modeling light usage with modifiers such as a softbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glass Dome I use this in my Profoto D1 1000 Airs for my 5' Octabox. It is by far superior light compared to the glass plate. The thing about this product is that it's hard to find and I have 4 D1s and only 1 Glass Dome!
