Suggestions for a Beauty Dish with a 580 or 600 Canon Speedlite
« on: November 02, 2012, 05:25:58 PM »
Need help with recommendations on a beauty dish for use with Canon 580 or 600RT.  I would rather stay with speedlites rather than stobes (I think, am I wrong) because I do most of my work on location.  Thanks

Kasey BD with their speedlite mount is a solid choice.

If cheaper is needed, the 22" ebay BD is fine, although with less-than-ideal bracket.

I personally use the Speedotron BD with Kasey adapter/bracket for Alien Bee strobe, not speedlite.  One could buy the Kasey speedlite bracket and use it on Speedotron BD as well.

Check out the ones from Lumodi - inexpensive and available in several sizes. The construction is very light weight - not poorly made, but you'll need to handle them with some care.
