Profoto 901183 Overview

  • 1Description

The Softlight Kit from Profoto is a softlight reflector kit with three items: the softlight reflector, a honeycomb grid, and a diffuser. The softlight reflector provides soft but directional light suitable for fashion and portrait photography. Of course, it can also be used for numerous lighting applications in architectural, interior design and product photography. The kit includes a honeycomb grid with a 25º beam spread to narrow the light for more precise illumination and a diffuser of 1/3 stop reduction to produce even softer light. The grid clips onto the reflector while the diffuser wraps around and secures itself with a strong elastic band. This reflector is compatible with all Profoto heads, including ProTungsten Air and ProDaylight Air. Use it as an alternative to a softbox.

Known as the "beauty dish" because it throws directed but soft light, perfect for fashion and soft portrait photography. It offers a 65º light spread and is meant to be placed close to the subject in order to produce "character" lighting.
25º honeycomb grid controls the light to a more precise location. Not as tight as a spot light but good for producing highlights.
The diffuser wraps around the reflector to further soften the light, reducing it by 1/3 stop.

Profoto 901183 Reviews

Softlight Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Modifier, Steep Price I find the quality of the light in the studio to be very nice, regardless of whether or not the dish has the diffuser of grid on it. However, both of those items do make a difference in the quality of light in subtle ways.With that being said, it doesn't seem worth $ (at the time I purchased it). The grid and the diffuser added to the price of the $ dish, which seems really steep. But it's hard to say whether another dish would have the same build quality and performance as this one.The Disc in the middle to block a direct flash from the strobe creates a dark spot in catchlights. One could easily correct this in software if they're so inclined (which I am). So, the glass insert to reduce this effect is not something I find worth the additional cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Must-Have Modifier Easy on and off. Total compatibility will all Profoto lights. Add the grid and just watch your subject pop out of their environment with beautiful, angelic light. If you do portraits this dish is an absolute must. I considered buying the dish by itself but the grid gives so much control and direction that I'm glad I decided to go for the kit. I was in a horrible environment and was able to let the background go dark while glorifying y subject. The client went crazy, just from the LCD screen on the back of my camera!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like the control the grid allows I had the OCF beauty dish that I received as part of a promotion for the B1 strobes. It was a nice unit that I used more often without the diffusion panel. The hard 22 inch beauty dish gives a slightly more uniform light. However, the Softlight beauty dish really shines when you add the 25 degree grid. There is no grid for the soft beauty dish. The grid consumes part of the light but allows for constraint of the light to the face with nice falloff down the body. Spill onto the background is also greatly reduced with the grid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beauty Dish This well constructed and with the grid is a great light shaping tool. I use it with a B1 with fantastic results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beauty Dish Have used this reflector several times and gives great soft light without grid and sharp contrasty light with grid. Exactly what I expect out of Profoto Lighting. This is a perfect modifier to go with my Profoto B1. I know that this is an expensive piece of gear but well worth the money, like all Profoto gear. The B1 Air is also an unbelievable light. It will make a pro out of an amateur.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful light I wanted a beauty dish and opted for this metal version because I am frequently out in the wind. It does product very nice lighting on subjects. The dish and the honeycomb grid are the expected Profoto quality build. 5 stars for those. The diffuser, not so much. It barely holds on and, in fact, has already shredded from a run when simply stretching to fit it on the dish.
