    like many of you here, I have a pretty gnarly collection of high-powered torches.

    I've started screwing around with fill light, and was wondering whether anyone here is familiar with a robust, portable beauty dish + stand that would let me fit a standard-sized Cree or Lenser (instead of either another flash or a large, heavy dedicated light like this)

    I don't mind carrying a bit of extra gear - I already usually have 2-3 cameras with a selection of lenses, a flash, 2 tripods, a beauty dish, and a bunch of other shit with me but anything highly collapsible would be welcome. Thanks!

    I reckon the best way would be a flash umbrella meant for flashguns. Instead of fitting the flashgun tape on or clamp the Lenser torch. Its still going to be pretty dull and would need a long exposure, but I guess you'll know that. Personally I reckon light painting with a wide bean torch might provide a better fill, if a slightly harder light. I assume your taking about lighting an explore location here, in which case taking a beauty dish seems a bit unusual!

    Phottix do a collapsible beauty dish but it will need modifying to get your flashgun or Lenser to fit. They were around £40 last time I looked.
    Very quick and easy to set up, no chance of getting a steel rod propelled towards your throat either !
