Impact BD-20 overview

  • 1Description

The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. This Impact 20" Beauty Dish Reflector lives up to its potential by offering a bridge between softboxes and umbrellas that yields a soft but crisp light with snappy contrast and a textural quality that flatters makeup on models and accentuates character in portrait subjects. The secret is a built-in deflector that bounces the flash's direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward. The Beauty Dish fits most major brands with the separate purchase of an adapter.

The Beauty Dish can also be used in combination with a diffuser sock or honeycomb grid, which allows for further modification of the light output.

Note: Beauty Dishes are not recommended for use with continues tungsten lights over 300 watts.

Features neutral white reflector
Ideal for fashion portrait photography
Combine with optional diffuser sock or honeycomb grid

    Impact BD-20 reviews

    20" Beauty Dish Reflector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Received this item bent slightly out of shape, and I was surprised to find that the inside is not a smooth white painted surface, but rather a speckled texture of white paint. Overall, I guess I get what I pay for but now I'm concerned that a honeycomb grid won't be secure on this product. Disappointed with the fact that Impact products tend to be quality, but this one I can't recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value for money I am very pleased to have this Beauty Dish in my collection of light modifiers. I purchased this dish with a grid and the scrim sock that goes over the front. The light is harde than a medium softbox as you would expect but I can seel many uses for this item in the future. Attached to a Profoto B1 i found that I had to overexpose by two stops when set on TTL

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price This dish seems like reasonable value. I'm not sure how well it will take a beating on the road - my last dish (Paul C Buff 22) was flattened in the belly of a Delta jet. This one already shows signs of warping so the grid is an iffy fit and the black outer paint is coming off around the rim. That said, it works well enough and like all beauty dishes it's hard to pack and store securely without keeping it in a huge box so it's bound to get banged up but its not big money to replace. It's a little more specular than the Buff dish and consequently it delivers a little more punch - I quite like that but it's taking some time to bed in with my other gear. I chose the 20 because it was on sale, otherwise the obvious choice for me would be the 22 but the difference is barely noticeable - I don't think anyone could easily tell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome modifier I bought the Impact beauty dish kit that B&H puts together with the diffuser sock, and the 40 degree grid. This is a fantastic modifier. You do need to buy the adapter for the brand of light that you are using though. Even if you are using Impact lights. I bought an Impact adapter and an Elincrom because I use a mix of brands for lighting. good stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT A GREAT DEAL. THE 22 WAS A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE SO I WENT WITH THIS SIZE. I DON'T THINK 2 MAKE THAT MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE. I HAND MADE A SILVER REFLECTOR THAT I CAN PUT IN THE INSIDE OF IT SO I CAN HAVE AN OPTION BETWEEN WHITE & SILVER. GREAT PRODUCT.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice light Haven't used it a lot yet but I do like the light it gives off. Especially with the grid. Have a big dance event soon that I'll be using it more for some special effects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome The best thing I ever did to improve my glamour photography light set up was to purchase this beauty dish -and grid- to work with my speedlights! Scott Storm

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on Great product, gives a different look from a soft box and very easy to assemble and use. Used with the honeycombe and diffuser they soak up a couple of stops.
