36 years ago, Profoto released a lighting accessory they called the Softlight Reflector. Today, we call this creation a beauty dish, thanks to its unique design that softens light in the perfect manner for portraits.
Today, Profoto has announced a new and improved version, the OCF Beauty Dish. And this time, it’s collapsable, making it far more portable and lightweight than ever before.
Technically, this compact update is nothing more than an octabank with a beauty dish reflector and diffuser on the outside. But it brings into the 21st century a product that has long had its place in the arsenal of strobists around the world.
Designed to be used alongside Profoto B1 and B2 units, the OCF Beauty Dish uses a patent pending design that weighs only 1.1 pounds (roughly 0.48 kg) and folds out to a diameter of 2 feet (56 cm)
