Re: recommendation for Speedlight Beauty Dish


The light from a 12" BD at say 4 ft is pretty hard - your link points to an even smaller BD, so at common working distances, you are going to get rapid light to dark transitions.

As mentioned in another current thread, an omnibounce or stofen device can help if direct light spills around the edge of the primary reflector.

Certainly a grid is useful with a bd - but your speedlight is likely to be working quite hard given the inefficiencies involved. Cheers
