Flashpoint Q Series 6" Beauty Dish Reflector, "B" Size for Shoe Mounted Flashes

Flashpoint

About Flashpoint

The "Q" Series Beauty Dish Reflector measures 6" in diameter and comes with a silver deflector panel. It redirects the bounced, rectangular output of a standard shoe flash into a more diffused, flattering pattern of light. Light emitted using the Beauty Dish Reflector is soft and shadowless. Just like the name implies the result is similar to using a studio beauty dish reflector.

The Beauty Dish is secured to the flash with a velcro strap.

Available in "A" and "B" series. Size "B" fits: Canon 480EX, 430EX, 420EX, 380EX, 430EZ Nikon SB800, SB600, SB800DX, SB28, SB26, SB25, Minolta 5600hs, 5400xi/hx, 5200i, 3600, Olympus FL40, FL50, G40, Sony HVLF1000, HVLF32X, Nissin 360TW, 360T XP, PZ400C-N-M.

Outstanding product

I have virtually every type of modifier for Nikon Speedlights (Fong, Demb, Stofen, Harbor Digital, Lumniquest, you name it), and this little Flashpoint beauty dish is the best of the lot. For best results, order the gel/diffuser kit, and use the plain (neutral) diffuser for general photography. The dish is light-weight, and yet sturdy, and consistently produces pleasing, natural-looking light (with little or no hotspots or blown highlights). Never a need to point the Speedlight toward a cieli...

I have virtually every type of modifier for Nikon Speedlights (Fong, Demb, Stofen, Harbor Digital, Lumniquest, you name it), and this little Flashpoint beauty dish is the best of the lot. For best results, order the gel/diffuser kit, and use the plain (neutral) diffuser for general photography. The dish is light-weight, and yet sturdy, and consistently produces pleasing, natural-looking light (with little or no hotspots or blown highlights). Never a need to point the Speedlight toward a cieling or wall for "bounce" lighting (in either landscape, or portrait position). Just aim at the subject and shoot. Review. If the light is a bit too strong, simply bring down the flash compensation a tad, and the exposure is just right. It's the only diffuser I know of that provides simultaneos reflective light, as well as diffused light (with the diffuser attached) without light loss (because the Speedlight is aimed directly at the subject). It's like having a nice miniature studio softbox mounted right on your camera. Just what I was looking for. Sample pic is my first test shot with the Flashpoint Q.

i love this item!!!

By

from new Jersey  -  Photography Student

i don't have much to say about this item,.i really like how easy it is to mount on my flash and the results i get in my pictures. On the other side, its a little fragil since it has to be light weight for the flash so just be careful when you pack it up.

Nice soft-light diffuser

By

from Great Falls, Montana  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Of course it won't ttl accurately but it does give you a nice spread, soft light when shooting relatively close. Perfect for a hand held fill or hair light while on location.

Great Catch Lights!

The attached very securely to my Olympus FL50-R. The catch lights created were consistent indoors and outdoors. Very nice little dish.
