A very long time ago, I hacked a beauty dish to work with a speedlight by stuffing a Gary Fong Lightsphere into the back of it. It worked well enough–and now it seems like the idea has caught on. RoundFlash recently announced their new RoundFlash Dish–a flash modifier that connects to your speedlight and gives off light almost like a beauty dish. It seems loosely based off of their very excellent RoundFlash Ring Flash Version 2.
Inside of this unit is a mirror that bounces the light backward and into a reflective area that then spreads the light out and evenly. Plus, it has a built in diffusion dome for even softer light.
It attaches to the head of your flash via a belt system and only costs around 69 Euro. If it’s anything like what the RoundFlash Ring Flash is, we’re super excited for it.
