Westcott have release a new Rapid Box 24″ Beauty Dish designed by photographer Joel Grimes.
The fast pop open beauty is based on an umbrella like frame. With 16 metal rods creating extra strength, and a near round front face aimed at providing circular catch-lights like a traditional solid dish.
The advantage of the collapsible design is the ability to reduce to a diameter of just 6″ when folded, for easy transport and storage.
The Rapid Box 24″ Beauty Dish are primarily designed for studio strobes and continuous lights, and provide a built in metal speedring for specific mounts.
Bowens, Elinchrom, Profoto, Balcar, and Photogenic versions are available.
The soft white lined material is heat rated for strobes and continuous lights up to 650 watts.
A one stop, unbleached, color neutral, nylon fabric diffusion cover is also supplied, providing more of a softbox effect.
And the center reflector plate is also removable, again for more of a traditional softbox effect.
