Impact BD-27 overview

  • 1Description

The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. This Impact 27" 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-27 reviews

    27" Beauty Dish Reflector is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from BIG Warning... Literally lol. You will need to invest into a very heavy duty and pricey boom arm system to handle this puppy! And only if you want to use the BD properly and to its fullest potential of what its meant to be used for. Using a normal light stand and tilted downward BD is not that great nor versatile. 1: get the manfrotto boom system B&H#: MA085BS and you should be set for life. I cant sadly afford this right now though. 2: the other option is have a very strong assistant with a monopod or something to hold it. But since I do not have a full time assistant I only used this 2 times in studio shoots, wish I had a full time assistant to take it along with on-location but that won't happen until I get that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Left out I'm sure this will be ok but there wasn't anything in the info telling me I needed an adaptor for my light system (Novatron)...but I did. The extra part is now on order. I also ordered a sock. This is a good idea. If this is your first dish I would order a sock with your initial order.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of pretty light Used as key light for portrait photography. Went with 27 to use for full length portraits. Light provides coverage on standing human subject at about 3/4 length. Falloff occurs at about the thighs. It is heavy so make sure the light its attached to is strong enough to stay upright. Need the adaptor to attach to light. Make sure you get the right one for your kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Produces Beautiful Light Important thing to remember is to use this on an Impact Strobe you need the adapter. So order it with the dish. Very easy to attach... produces beautiful light with and without the sock.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from kind of perfect, for the money at a third the cost of a profoto dish, and of very nice build quality, would be hard to justify the profoto unit. high marks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again I use this beauty dish on my Profoto D2 strobe Just love it

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from My Fault Maybe? I don't know, I feel like this item could have worked very well for me if I knew before hand I needed a boom arm that can handle the heavy amount of weight this has. I was not educated on beauty dishes well, but needed one to go possibly go to the next level in fashion photography. With that lack of knowledge I did not have the funds to buy all of the other equipment to properly use the 27 dish. But I do wish the item had a tip or some kind of disclaimer of some sort on the product page. The images it produces without a boom arm its just not as appealing and fairly worthless to me. After getting it, I did tons of research and found out I needed at least $300+ investment on a boom arm setup to handle the weight of the dish and the strobe. BH# MA085BS I'd recommend and I plan to get maybe a year from now. But ever since buying this, it hasn't been used, which is at least over a year, only 2 times used. So I could either sell it and buy a smaller one from another brand (as the impact BD are very evenly priced), or let it sit for another year or 2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It does not need to be assembled - Remember to buy the Beauty Dish Adapter - Shadows are not too contrasty - nice and smooth light. It is 27 large so not very easy to carry around. Well build - Light material
