StudioKing Beauty Dish Silver SK-BD420 42 cm with Honeycomb Grid
The SK-BD420 by StudioKing is a silver beauty dish (? 42 cm) that comes with a honeycomb, diffuse cloth and a reflector. As the name suggests, a beauty dish allows you to photograph people in the most beautiful way. It provides a wide spread and a strong contrast, so that details of a person (think of skin tones or muscles) are highlighted in the most beautiful way. Compared to a white beauty dish, a silver color makes details stand out even more.
How does it work?
You attach the reflector to the three 'sticks' on the inside of the beauty dish. This causes the light to be reflected and distributed. The honeycomb can be used to direct the flashlight more. With the diffusion cloth you can soften the light. Different adapter rings are optionally available (note: these are not included with this product).
With which brands of flash units can I use the beauty dish?
You can easily use this beauty dish with many different brands, including Bowens, Broncolor, Elinchrom, Falcon Eyes, Hensel, Multiblitz and Linkstar. Adapter rings are available for all of these brands, which you can find in the optional accessories. In addition to the 152mm adapter rings, you can also connect this beauty dish to adapters with a 144mm diameter. This can save you a considerable amount of money, because you no longer need to buy the original accessories.
