| p.1 #1 · Weight On Speed Light Head/Mount |
Hey guys...I work on a budget and anytime I can, I try to DIY on certain things. One thing I just completed was a DIY beauty dish. However, I've got a question. The dish is made out of a 18" plastic bowl that I picked up at a home improvement store. The directions call for a 14" bowl, but I've looked high and low and can't find a 14" bowl in my area. Anyway, my question pertains to the weight of the bowl on the mount and head of a SB28 flash.
I don't know what the bowl, insert for the flash, CD case and convex mirror weighs. I'm going to say it is around a 1 lb, but not sure. I'm just wondering if the weight of the bowl is too much for the shoe mount on the flash. How much weight would you guys limit yourself to on attaching to the flash? Any help or information is appreciated....Thanks
Here are pictures of the homemade beauty dish.
