Impact Beauty Dish Overview

  • 1Description
  • 2Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector
  • 3Impact 40° Honeycomb Grid for 22" Beauty Dish Reflector
  • 4Impact 22" Diffuser Sock

This Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector Kit is comprised of the Impact 22" Beauty Dish with a deflector, diffusion sock and a honeycomb grid. The kit is configured 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 affix 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.

Note:
Beauty Dishes are not recommended for use with continues tungsten lights over 300 watts.
Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector

The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. This Impact 22" 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.

Ideal for fashion portrait photography

The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. The grid offers slightly increased contrast, directionality, and spill light control. It's an ideal tool for achieving Rembrandt-like lighting effects. This grid is designed exclusively for an Impact Beauty Dish.

Impact 22" Diffuser Sock

This 22" Diffuser Sock from Impact is a 22" nylon fabric light softener ringed with strong elastic for a snug fit around standard-sized light head reflectors. In addition, it is also ideal for use with 20 and 20.5" diffusers. This convenient diffuser softens light output by creating a larger light surface across the face of the reflector, bathing your subject in a diffuse light that's perfect for portrait or beauty photography and video. It installs in seconds, and is a handy way to quickly diffuse a light source, when setting up a softbox or using a handheld diffuser is impractical.

Diffuser Socks are stackable, offering the capability to increase the diffusion effect by adding additional socks over the first. Each layer of diffusion reduces light output by 1-stop. The nylon fabric is heat resistant and won't yellow or burn from the heat of your flash, studio strobe modeling light, or a cool light source, like LED or fluorescent lights.

Note:
Intended for use on flash heads, LED sources, or fluorescent sources. Do not use on continuous hot light sources like halogen, tungsten, or HMI lamps.
  • Fits over 22" reflectors
  • Diffuses and softens light output by 1 stop
  • Stackable for increased diffusion
  • Heat resistant - won't yellow or burn

    Wow! This beauty dish is made super well, the sock is sewn beautifully, and the grid is a perfect fit to the dish. I'm absolutely impressed and happy that I bought this kit. $99 is a price that made me have my doubts, but I'm SO glad I bought it! You can't go wrong with this, it's a thing of beauty!

    Good product.

    If you have an option to get Manny Ortiz beauty dish (if it's on sale) then definitely go for that. If not, this set up is still a good option.

    Simple kit, mounts easily, and the quality of light is beautiful - really effective isolation of the subject. I am using this with an Aputure LS 120 and it is a good combination. The packaging is good. Everything arrived in good shape and while the construction is light, and to that point, there was a slight warp in the dish when it arrived, it still easily fit the grid and diffuser. A little bit of gentle persuasion got the dish back in shape with no noticeable affect on the quality of light. When I transport this light, I certainly wouldn't put anything heavy on top of it. Fit onto a light, and mounted on a stand, the whole assembly is stable and, as noted, produces a beautiful and flattering light for a subject. It could be a single light source but I intend to use it with a fill light.

    Super Fun

    I had wanted a beauty dish for a while, but they are quite expensive. I saw this kit, with all the accessories. I was surprised at the quality feel to it. I have played with it for one headshot session and the results are amazing. The grid is great, to keep light where I want it in a tight space.

    cheap. not stable.

    It can be fitted together with adapters though if your going small flash, it would work better with an open flashtube unit like the Godox AD200. The adapters you would need for your Canon Flash would be: BH# GOSZ1 (or GOS2) and IMBDAIMP.
