[DIY] Tata!!! UmbrellaDish! #strobist

Well! For the Strobist out there. We all know how bulky the Beauty-dish is.

Especially for me who doesn't even drive in Shanghai, China. Carrying the big Beauty-Dish is hard. (and people often thought I am a Satellite Technician)

So I've always tried to avoid using it.


The other day, I was walking around XingGuang (the Shanghai Camera Mall, Yes a WHOLE BUILDING selling photography related stuff!!)


I came across a little rather useless thing, which is a reflector that mount in front of the camera lens, to act as a "Ring-flash" that's selling for 20 Chinese Yuan (about 3USD??)

But suddenly this strike me, I can make use of this thing. and solve the beauty Dish problem.


So.. BEHOLD!!! the UmbrellaDish!!!
