Beauty Dish

I would really like to see Photoflex design and market a great beauty dish suitable for speedlights.

There only seems to be a couple of beauty dishes designed specifically for small flash and typically they are only about 6-9” in diameter; and require poorly designed adapters that fit only a small range of flash models. Consequently if you have more than one type speedlight (e.g. SB-700/SB-910 in my case) then you need to purchase additional adapters . . . most of which seem very hooky.

I would like to see something with a 12-15” diameter that would use the Adjustable ShoeMount 2 mounting bracket.

Available options should include both a fabric diffuser and a grid.

[Obviously it would be really great if Photoflex would select me as one of the field testers!]

Regards,
C Singleton

We are in the process of testing and considering a design for a 15” Beauty Dish to work with a shoe flash. Probably released near the end of the summer.

Photoflex Norm,

That sounds great!

Even better, would be if you would consider letting me field test one of them!

I am an experienced product reviewer (MAKE magazine and RC Groups).

Best regards,
