The answer depends on what you want to use it for.

With smaller beauty dishes you will probably need to be closer and will use it for smaller subjects. With larger beauty dishes you will want more flash power.

Keep in mind that a beauty dish will give you a very special type of light that is fairly evenly, but not perfectly evenly spread, and yet is still very directional. It isn't a hard light or a soft light but a mixture of the two. Be sure that this is the light modifier you need before buying one.

Living and loving it in Bangkok, Thailand. Canon 7D - See the gear list for the rest.

Thanks for your reply

Im using it for studio shots rather than outdoor photography.
