Completes the RapidBox kit. Should really just come with it.
on September 25, 2013
It's hard to justify $20 for a stamped pieces of plastic and some mounting hardware, but it does do a great job in transforming the light output of the Rapid Box to something more along the lines of a beauty dish.
The dish can be mounted two ways; concave out or concave in. I haven't really experimented with the differences, though I'm sure the differences would mainly be in the edge feathering, particularly if using it without the front diffuser panel. If you're using a Rapid Box and finding too many hot spots across skin, using this to ensure that all light hitting the subject is coming off of the silver lining can definitely help out the overall quality of your images.
I suppose the glass-half-full explanation could be that by NOT including this in the original product, those who just want a simple softbox save a few bucks. *shrug*
