I just purchased a used Hensel Contra 1000 monolight and would really like to get inexpensive beauty dish for it. I like the White Lighting/Alien Bees dish and was wondering if anyone knows whether it will fit on a Hensel.

Alternatively, I'm considering a Mola beauty dish for my Hensel and/or my Elinchrom monolights. Cost is a factor here and I really don't know if it would be worth it.

Thanks,

You may or may not know that Elinchrom make their own beauty dishes - they have two sizes. I have the larger one (72cm, I think) with a white interior. Comes with gold and silver deflectors which slide into the umbrella hole of the Elinchrom mono. Works well. I think Elinchrom call it a Softlite, or something like that.

Why not get the Hensel Beauty Dish? It's inexpensive and a terrific modifier.

Does anyone know of a speedring for a Nikon SB-800 and a Hensel Beauty Dish? I've searched with no success. If not I'll try to "jury-rig" one.

I agree, I don't think you can put an AB dish on Hensel lights. You would probably have to cut or modify the dish in some way for that to work. Seems kind of crazy. Why not just buy the Hensel? Or if you have to have a different brand b/c your need a larger one, try Mola.

Ok, thank everyone, I think my options are either the Hensel or the Mola. I'm leaning towards the Mola.

Just check & see if you can insert grids or additional modifiers with the Mola. I ordered the 22" and it was very well made and the $ was comparable to the Hensel but you could not add grids. This was over a year ago so things may have changed.

the elinchrom dish (the maxi soft is 27" and the minisoft is 17") is wonderful-- they both ship with a silver and gold reflector. However finding them in stock somewhere is another matter entirely-- at least here in the US.

Getting a hensel dish is a no brainer. Then keep an eye out for an elinchrom if you need a one for the el. heads.
