Need a beauty dish for your small flash? Lumodi beauty dishes, unlike most on the market, are specially made for use with hotshoe flashguns and are constructed from plastic, rather than metal.
The new HD Pro 14″ and 18″ beauty dishes feature a ribbed exterior and an internal deflector “optimized for speedlight use”. They also include a carrying bag, 20° grid and diffusion sock. Coatings available include Soft White, Bright Silver and Warm Titanium, which give different looks depending on the colour/quality of light you’re going for.
Products are hand-made in California, according to the manufacturer’s web site. The Lumodi 14 HD Pro kit starts at $189, including the aforementioned accessories, and the 18 HD Pro kit is priced from $249.
Beauty dishes produce a different quality of light but are less portable than comparable collapsible light modifiers, such as softboxes and umbrellas. Which do you prefer? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
