I figured it's time to take a break from "what lens should i use" and "what settings should i use" threads with something different
This is pretty much a question for Mike or Bryan but if anyone else has input then I'd gladly welcome it.
I currently have an E640+VML combo that I've been using for outdoor formals; bare w/ reflector. I'm looking to use a beauty dish in order to soften the light just a bit without using umbrellas or softboxes that will fly off in the wind.
Any suggestions on a good white BD for the AB/WL mount? I'm currently choosing between a Kacey and PCB beauty dish.
Kacey ($187 shipped with AB/WL mount) http://photos.smugmug.com/photos/504393533_Wv7i5-XL.jpg
PCB ($110 shipped) http://www.paulcbuff.com/22hobd-w.php
- Kacey costs more; but how much better is it? I'm sure the quality of light is similar but I'm more concerned about durability. Is the PCB beauty dish really weak and easy to deform? What about the Kacey?
- Carrying options; what bag to use? PCB looks like it will fit my needs and is way cheaper than the Kacey. I wonder if they are interchangeable... I'm also open to any alternative bag that you'd recommend.
Kacey (85$) http://photos.smugmug.com/photos/945280134_gQ2LT-X2.jpg

Hope you guys can help. Thanks!
