In our field, gear matters, and you’d have to have a bank balance bigger than your bank account number for you to acquire all you likely would want when the whim takes you. However, if you keep your ear to the ground like we do, you come about the best photography deals currently on the market, and within our Deal Dashes, we share them with you:

Unless this is your first time on SLR Lounge, you’ll likely know we love Profoto. Not only do they have the history of creating high-quality lighting equipment, but they continue to uphold their standards throughout innovation and evolution. As with most quality things, Profoto equipment isn’t often on sale. However, right now they are including the new OCF Beauty Dish that we’ve shot with and adore (see here), but a Speedring also when you get either the single B2 To-Go kit, or the double B2 To-Go Location kit.

This OCF Beauty Dish is the new incarnation of one of the industry’s most beloved modifiers, and unlike its predecessor it’s easily transported.   The B2s are fabulous and worth their price, so this is just icing on the cake to get these two with it. Get the kits here:

    The beauty dish is awesome, beats the big ass metal dishes. Still undecided about the B2’s though. Great light, super portable, you can stick one on a monopod and hold it over a dance floor.. but those long cords can get seriously annoying. I’ve used them on in the past few weddings and using two B2’s, the cord was a serious issue. But that’s my only complaint.

    What!? I just bought my B2 kit three months ago, and now they’re including a beauty dish. That’s a little upsetting. Oh well. I’m happy with the B2, it’s amazing. I’ll just have to buy the beauty dish separate.

      that’s always a rough scenario. Pye pretty much adores that Beauty Dish so I’m sure it’ll still be worth while to check out. Cheers Antonio.

    The OCF Beauty Dish is a really versatile light shaping tool. I changed to the B2 system earlier this year, overall it has been a good experience. Only issue being missing the power from the Elinchrom Quadra I previously used.

    • Kishore Sawh

      That’s interesting Paul. I get asked often about which to do with, and I never have a straight answer. I’ve used the Quadras but the B2s only briefly. Our studio uses them a lot, however, and to much success. what do you shoot?

    • Paul Wynn

      Weddings, business portraits and events, images for web sites and press. Basically 100% on location, I’d be looking for a B1 next for more power.

    Hmm, they listed the tripod on a gawker media deals page today too and it’s showing up as $169

      Hey Justin, this post went up yesterday, and it was a one-day deal from B&H. It’s over. I think they sold out last night actually. These 1-day sales from them are usually great, but my god do you have to jump on them. I’ll keep posting them here

    • Justin Haugen

      Thanks Kishore, I’m a little slow today after three full days of shoots. I even left my garage door open while out filming this morning. It doesn’t surprise me I missed that these were yesterday’s 1 day sales lol.

      Thank you for sharing them!

    I was drooling over that B2 at PhotoCon but can’t justify the expense quite yet. Some day.
