    Westcott 2030-DP reviews

    Deflector Plate for Rapid Box is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 80.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let the light hug the Rapid Box That's literally what it does, it lets the light bounce back to the reflective interior of the Rapid Box and hug every nook before being deflected back to the front. The difference this little deflector plate makes is quite astounding; Instead of having the light barely skim, this plate stops the light and deflects it through out the entire umbrella. It works similarly to a beauty dish's reflector plate...actually the Rapid Box with the deflector plate works exactly like a beauty dish. There is no if's, and's or but's; if you own the Rapid Box by Westcott, you need to own this deflector plate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have accessory for the Rapid Box I bought this along with the 26 octagonal Rapid Box, which essentially transforms it into a beauty dish. This adds a level of versatility to the Rapid Box, rather than leaving it to be just another portable soft box. Simply screw it on after opening the Rapid Box, and that's it. My only complaint is the price. For something that is obviously stamped or molded metal, it probably doesn't cost nearly as much to make as Westcott is charging for it. It doesn't feel cheap by any means, but, in terms of materials to create and deliver the product, it probably shouldn't be *this* expensive.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needed for RapidBox The Good: Nice plate to distribute light inside the RapidBox. Awesome customer service from Westcott (lost my screw and they sent a new one). The Bad: Lost the screw on day one... it should be glued into the plate..which is exactly what I did after i got a replacement. Do it ! it will save you looking for a replacement screw. This should have come with the Rapid box instead of being a separate item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I purchased the 2030-DP Deflector Plate with the 32 Rapid Box Duo, the reason why was I wanted to have the ability to use the Duo as a beauty dish. There is not much to this item, it comes with a adapter the deflector plate itself and a screw. The Deflector plate once mounted, forces the light to bounce into the reflective material of the Soft box, and if used with the softbox panels in place creates a very even spread of light. So yes it works fantastic as a beauty dish style modifier. If you own any of the rapid box modifiers, this item should be part of your purchase, it gives you just one more step of flexiblity with your photography. For what it is, I think it should have been included with the Rapid Box. But regardless it is a must have.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Simple Solution The deflector plate for the 26 Rapid Box is a great addition to your tool kit, as it allows you to change the quality of light from your light modifier in seconds. With the plate in place, the light modifier delivers a quality of light more akin to that of a beauty dish. The plate fits in the Rapid Box bag, and barely weighs anything, so it is very convenient, and helps for those who like to travel light with their equipment. When shooting outdoors in bright sunlight, I would not recommend using the deflector plate. as it lowers the light output from your flash, which is already having a hard time combating the sun. Other than that, the deflector is a bit pricey for what it is, but not a big deal. Especially if you purchase the 26 Rapid Box kit that includes the 26 softbox, deflector plate. and a light stand. I would definitely recommend the kit for any photographers who are looking for a lightweight off-camera lighting setup.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money for heavier duty light stand I saw several reviews saying how necessary an accessory the Beauty Dish reflector is for the Wescott Rapid Box duo. I had a professional photographer help me with a test photo shoot. We tried the modifier with/without the dish, along with various configurations of the 2 fabric diffusers. We just couldn't tell any difference with or without the beauty dish reflector plate. The light stand comment was because the B&H recommend light stand for the Rapid Box duo, in my opinion is too light weight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice accessory for Rapid Box I bought this deflector plate along with the Westcott Rapid Box - 26 Octa Softbox, based on recommendations in Rapid Box reviews. It attaches quickly to the screw post on the spreader hub and is very solid, like the Rapid Box itself. This deflector does noticeably soften the light from the softbox, but at the cost of flash power/range. As other reviews have state it does tuck nicely into the Rapid Box case, and you can leave the screw in the post when folding up the umbrella to avoid losing it.This product is well made and works as advertised, but I'm giving it 4 stars because 1) it's overpriced for a small metal plate with a single screw, and 2) it should be included with the $200 Rapid Box. That said, if you want to turn a Westcott soft box into a beauty dish this is an effective solution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Accessory If you are ordering a Rapid Box order this Deflector Plate, it is a must have accessory. Without the deflector plate the Rapid Box is just a so so soft box. The Deflector Plate turns it into an outstanding light modifier.
