Re: Why do speedlights in beauty dishes face forward?

@jamieramage Would it really? Wouldn't the flash be in the same spot the deflector disc currently is in with most designs? And the speedlight could be laid on its long end to consume a lesser portion of the dish's diameter than most deflector discs take up.
