    Deflector Plate for Rapid Box Octa XL and XXL is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to an already great light modifier I ordered the deflector plate along with the Rapid Box Octa XXL. First off, the Octa XXL is an amazing modifier on its own (particularly how light & portable it is, not to mention the quality of light it puts out). For just a little extra, this deflector plate turns the Octa into a giant beauty dish. All I did was remove the outer diffuser panel (I left the inner one in place just to see what would happen). The deflector plate installs in a matter of seconds (just remember which way to install it -- shiny side faces your strobe). In this setup, it creates slightly punchier light for portraits with a bit more edge to them. It's like adding a whole extra light modifier to your gear list... all with just a simple 'plate' that stores just about anywhere. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone buying a Rapid Box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great plate. Easy to put on and remove. What I do after removing the Plate. Put the screw back in the umbrella. This way you'll never lose it. It will fit in the bag for the Rapid Box Octa XL. After the softbox is in the bag that comes with the Octa Box it will fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this plate! Adding this plate to my octabox really makes a difference. I use it for headshots and photobooths and this extra addition was exactly what I needed to smoothen out the strobe and utilize the full softness of the light that the Rapid box can offer!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good accessory, but high priced This is a great accessory, but I don't see why it is so expensive for a piece of curved metal. But I do like how even and well tuned the curve is for the Rapid Box Octa XXL to give some great lighting. Makes it a great portable beauty dish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty Dish First time I've used a beauty dish and wished I had used it before. Great pictures with it. I use it mainly for creative outdoor sports shoots and it gives that awesome look of the sky it's amazing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this again Easy to set up, it provides an increased performance in lighting when using the XL octabox. I really like how the soft light illuminates the subject when using this deflector plate.
