Do you have a showroom? Can I try the equipment before buying them?
Anonymous
  • We have a showroom at our warehouse in West Yorkshire where you can see and try out our equipment before you buy. You're more than welcome to bring your camera along too. It would be helpful if you could ring to make an appointment, but an appointment isn't essential. Also, we have a number of distributors in different areas.

Can I use Lencarta lighting equipment in continental Europe?
Anonymous
  • Yes you can. All Lencarta lighting equipment have built in voltage stabilisers, and will automatically adjust to accept mains power of between 180-240 volts. For European customers on the continent, we supply power leads with euro-spec plugs, so there is no need for adapters. Just plug in and use!

40cm Medium Beauty Dish - White - fits Elinchrom

Beauty Dishes are the favourite light shaping tool of fashion, glamour and portrait photographers who have moved beyond soft lighting and who want to emphasise high cheekbones and good complexions.

Beauty dishes are typically used at a distance of around 5’ (1.5m), because this is the optimum focussing point for well-designed softboxes – many of the cheaper versions do not focus properly at any distance) but we advise you to carry out your own tests in order to determine the different effects that can be achieved at different distances. At any given distance, a larger beauty dish will cover a larger area, and will produce a softer light, than a smaller one. It may be helpful to read this article, produced by The Photographic Academy.

Unlike the light from softboxes, the light is very controlled and directional and so is also ideal for backlighting and rimlighting, and for when vignettes are wanted. A free diffuser is included, this softens the light when needed and creates a light similar to that of a softbox.

A honeycomb grid is also available. This allows even greater control of both light spread and flare and can produce stunning, dramatic lighting with very hard shadow transfer edges.

A larger, 70cm (27.5") model is also available.

Our beauty dishes are available with a choice of white or silver finishes. We believe that Lencarta are the first manufacturer to introduce white beauty dishes - so what are the advantages and disadvantages of white compared to silver?
Advantages of white beauty dishes:
1. They produce softer light
2. When used with a honeycomb they do not create a shadow of the honeycomb, reflected from the interior of the dish.
Disadvantages of white beauty dishes:
They are about 0.8 of a stop les efficient in terms of light output, although this is not normally important as they are typically used very close to the subject.


Technical Specifications:

  • Quality of light: Soft but directional light
  • Light output (compared to standard reflector) -2 stops
  • Modelling lamp: Yes, uses lamp fitted to flash head. Modelling lamps must not be left switched on when the Beauty Dish is fitted with a honeycomb grid, to avoid overheating
  • Compatible with:
    Elinchrom
