This Impact 20" Beauty Dish Reflector Kit by B&H is comprised of the Impact 20" Beauty Dish with a deflector, diffusion sock and a honeycomb grid. The kit was put together to provide photographers with a creative means to augment this unique light shaping tool.

The Beauty Dish offers a bridge between a softbox and an umbrella that yields 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 included deflector that bounces the flash's direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward. This reflector renders natural-looking round catchlights in the subject's eyes rather than square or rectangular ones.

For a bit more control afix the provided grid to the Beauty Dish for increased directionality and spill light management. The grid gathers the light output into a large soft spot that allows you to create intricately lit background details and painterly effects.

Yet another kind of light is available by removing the grid and slipping on the Diffusion Sock. This gives the dish a wider angle of coverage and softer detail while it masks the deflector which might be seen in the catchlights in extreme closeups.



Note: The Beauty Dish requires separate purchase of an adapter for use.

  • Impact 20" Beauty Dish Reflector

    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

  • Impact 22" Diffuser Sock

    This Impact Diffuser Sock is a heat-resistant (see note), 22" nylon fabric light softener ringed with strong elastic for a snug fit around metal strobe head reflectors. In addition, it is also ideal for use with 20 and 20.5" diffusers. The diffuser softens the light output and reduces it by 1 stop.

    Diffuser Socks are stackable, offering the opportunity to increase the diffusion effect while reducing the light output.

    Note: Intended for use on flash heads or fluorescent sources. Do not use on continuous hot light sources.

    Diffuses and softens the light output by 1 stop

20" Beauty Dish Reflector Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I use this dish with an Einstein 640 WS. I used to have the original Paul C Buff white beauty dish but it was damaged while traveling. I replaced it with the later Buff beauty dish but I hated it because it felt cheap, I didn't like the flat rear panel and the deflector plate fixed on to the umbrella mount!So I opted for this Impact 20 - I would've gone for the 22 but it wasn't on sale and I'd rather have the extra $ than 2 of aluminum! Besides, the results really are marginal if you compare the 20 to the 22 but if you really think size matters just edge it an inch closer to your subject and nobody will know - just ask any Profoto beauty dish user!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photography Student taking 1st portraiture class I am photo student and in my second lighting class. I have only used it once so far and I am surprised at how I can control the light using the grid insert and diffusion sock. I am looking forward to continue how to use this dish. I was impressed at how I took it out of the box and used it for the first time on my own and achieved the light and shadows I wanted and I also aced my assignment using this dish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value generic beauty dish I got this to supplement my other soft boxes and umbrellas. It's more durable than I expected for a third party product. Color temps go cooler when using the diffusion sock, as expected. The grid fits well and makes the kit that much more versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size for studio or travel Had read elsewhere someone thought the stand-offs for the bounce were cheaply made. Did not find this at all they seemed sturdy enough and secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Functional Does exactly what you expect. Well made, especially the grid. Good enough quality that I should probably try and source a bag/box for it.
