Profoto Releases New Beauty Dish

BEGINNER

Collapsible and even more Portable than ever

When the Profoto Softlight Reflector was released in 1980, fashion photographers soon nicknamed it “The Beauty Dish” due to its unique ability to bring out the beauty of the model.  Since then it has grown to become one of the most iconic tools for creating a creamy yet crisp light, often referred to as a “beauty light”.

Now, Profoto releases a new version of this classic. The new version is named OCF Beauty Dish and is a collapsible, more portable version of the original.

The main difference is that the OCF Beauty Dish is not made of metal but high-quality fabrics. When collapsed, it is stored in a carrying bag that fits in a small backpack. Mounting the OCF Beauty Dish is quick and easy too, thanks to a clever, patent-pending design that allows you to snap it onto the OCF Speedring without having to bend and fumble with the rods. The entire tool, including speedring and deflector plate, weighs a mere 0.48 kg (1.1 lbs.). When mounted, the OCF Beauty Dish has a diameter of 56 cm (2′).

The OCF Beauty Dish is available in two versions: white and silver.  The white version delivers a softer and slightly more even light than its silver counterpart, while the silver version delivers a bit more punch and contrast.  Both versions are delivered with deflector plate, diffuser and carrying bag.

Being a fully integrated part of Profoto’s Off-Camera Flash system, the OCF Beauty Dish can be used with the B1 and the B2 Off-Camera Flashes, as well as the new OCF Gels. Note that it may not be used with any other Profoto flash due to heat issues.

The OCF Speedring is sold separately.
