Broncolor B-33.110.00 overview

  • 1Description

This reflector softens the light output of the Broncolor Primo, Pulso and HMI light heads. It is also known as a "beauty dish". It is a wide, but shallow reflector, with a cap that prevents a hotspot from forming at the center of the subject.

    Softlight Reflector, 20" for Broncolor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broncolor P-SOFT Reflector vs. Broncolor Beauty Dish If I may start out this way, I'd enlighten you to the fact that the silver P-Soft is a sort of hybrid silver reflector (like the P70, P65, P45, etc.) crossed with a Beauty Dish. The P-Soft carries the EXACT same benefits as listed above especially when used with the optional diffuser. What makes the P-SOFT so special is that well above it's similar traits to a Beauty Dish, the P-Soft can actually do more. Just as mentioned, it carries with it some of the traits of a silver reflector offering more textural detail on your subjects, crispness that fails to be harsh, a noticeable distinction in the character of light, and a natural ability to blend with sunlight. Now, the last point is worth discussing a little. I have used my share of Beauty Dishes on location, multiple Beauty Dishes in fact, and I have always come to the same conclusions: 1.) I positively LOVE the light and it's soft edge and overall appearance on the skin of my subjects , however its look is not terribly natural looking in open sunlight. 2.) I have to use, what I believe to be, far too much power to get the working shutter speed/ f-stop combinations that I need. 3.) My working distance is somewhat compromised in most situations. Working distance is the relationship between the lampheads and the subject along with their placement in the scene. Ideally, one would prefer a wide separation of lights and subject so as to permit wider-angle shots to be possible. 4.) The further away that I place by Beauty Dish, the less effective it remains as a soft light source (in the outdoors). With the broncolor P-Soft, I am able to address the above issues with greater confidence. The P-Soft has a more defined edge to the light that better mimics sunlight as it falls onto my subject (although not quite 100%). As a result, the transition of light between lamphead and sunlight seem noticeably more natural. With the P-Soft, I can use the lamphead further away from my subject, compared to a Beauty Dish.
