The Profoto OCF 24-inch White Beauty Dish is an optional add-on light modifier for the Profoto B1 and B2 strobes. Key features include:
Collapsible and portable design
Soft, defined light
Only for Profoto B1 and B2
Collapsible and Portable. Beauty dishes have long suffered from being cumbersome and running the risk of denting, warping, or being damaged. The OCF Beauty Dish solves this problem with a flexible, collapsible design.
Soft, Defined Light. With a beauty dish, you get much more defined shadows than you’d see with a softbox. At the same time, it produces a wide, uniform soft light. While softboxes are definitely the more common modifier when soft light is desired, the beauty dish is perfect for a more defined, three-dimensional soft light.
Center Deflector. This included center-mounted disc blocks direct light and redirects it to the large 24-inch reflector, providing a gradual light fall-off. This is what enables the increased shadow definition. It also produces the specular highlights (circular highlights that look like donuts) at close distances that are highly desired in beauty and fashion photography.
B1 and B2 Strobes Only. The 24-inch White Beauty Dish is only compatible with Profoto strobes that feature an LEDmodeling lamp, like the Profoto B1, Profoto B1X 500 AirTTL 1-Light To-Go Kit, B2 250 Air TTL To-Go Kit, and B2 250 Air TTL Location Kit. If you use it on any other strobe, it’ll melt onto the strobe and effectively ruin it, and will also possibly catch fire.
