The Rapid Box Deflector Plate is a must-have accessory for every Rapid Box user. This versatile accessory eliminates hot spots and creates lighting similar to that of a beauty dish.
This deflector plate quickly screws onto your Rapid Box's internal shaft and can be removed just as easily for storage. It's durable, compact form is designed to fit directly into your Rapid Box's travel bag.
Beauty Dishes are a popular type of modifier used by many professional fashion and beauty photographers. By quickly deflecting your light source toward a reflective surface, beauty dishes create a relatively specular output. This edgy lighting sculpts facial features and creates a nice catchlight when capturing headshots.
The original Rapid Box Deflector Plate is compatible with all Speedlite Rapid Boxes, including the 20" Rapid Box Octa, the 26" Rapid Box Octa, the 10" x 24" Rapid Box Strip, and the 32" Rapid Box Duo.
The Rapid Box XL/XXL Deflector Plate is compatible with all Studio Rapid Boxes, included the 36" Rapid Box XL and the 48" Rapid Box XXL, and offers two mounting options with the included extension rod.
I really love my XXL Rapid Box and this accessory is a great add on. This allows you to make the XXL into a huge Beauty Dish. A great add on, kind of wish they included this in the XXL package, but that is my only complaint and a very small one. Love Wescott, customer service is Top Notch and I have ordered from them before and will again in the future.
