Grids are made up of cells that control off-axis light in 4 directions while still maintaining the soft quality you want from a large light source. By focusing light through a grid, you eliminate both light spill and lens flare simultaneously for precise illumination.
A 40-degree grid is the most popular choice for photographers and filmmakers, allowing for precise light control with limited loss of light. Light loss at the center axis is minimal, even at a distance 3 to 4 times the diagonal of the softbox. This typically results in losing less than 1/4-stop.
This 40-degree grid for the Rapid Box Beauty Dish instantly attaches with ultra-durable hook-and-loop tape. The Rapid Box Beauty Dish is designed with a recessed edge, giving you the ability to use your diffusion panel and 40-degree grid simultaneously.
These soft, compact grids collapse down instantly for streamlined travel and storage in their included bag.
