What are some good options for a speedlight beauty dish? Im searching but there are so many options and wanted to read some opinions. I have a 24 Qbox with an adapter and i see cheetastand has some beauty dishes. Would the fit into the adapter?

Not sure about the Cheetah stuff, but a friend of mine owns the Kacey 22" BD with the double speedlite adapter and I have borrowed and used it a few times. It works great!

I have the Qbox 24 and use my 28" fotodiox dish on it once in awhile indoors. I wouldn't want to use that combo together outdoors though due to the weight on the Qbox adapter and the stress a strong wind would put it under. A 22" dish should be okay though.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

I have a Lumodi that I really like, although I don't use it much anymore since switching most of my lighting over to Cheetah.

I bought the Kacey a few years ago for Speedlite use, but shortly converted it to Alien Bees / Einsteins after I went with bigger flash.
