Beauty dishes are one of the most popular lighting modifiers out there, but they are not all created the same. Mola makes some of the most revered beauty dishes on the market, but with seven different models, you might wonder which is right for you. This excellent video comparison takes a look at three of the most popular versions to help you pick the best for your work.
Coming to you from John Gress, this great video compares three different beauty dishes: the Mola Setti, Mola Demi, and the Mola Rayo 15-inch. Mola’s beauty dishes and reflectors are well known for their design that features ridges, which the company claims help to focus the light more effectively. A lot of portrait and beauty photographers swear by them. The Setti is one of the most popular models, featuring a 28-inch interior that is meant to provide very contrasty light. On the other hand, the Demi features a 22-inch interior meant to create an even center light shaft with a graduated transition to the edge, which sits about a half-stop below the center. Lastly, the Rayo 15 produces a 75° spread of hard, directional light with a lot of punch. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Gress.
