All these modifiers (reflectors, softboxes, beauty dishes) are interchangeable for the most part, all one needs is a "speed-ring" to switch between manufacturers. So I did a quick and dirty search on "speedrings for speedlites"

Here's a great thread on what you're looking for:

A Quick Look at Yet Another Speedlight-to-Bowens Mount Bracket - Canon Digital Photography Forums

Here's a promising result for 16" bdishes. Follow the links for the brackets.

Nice, Lawrence. Love the warmth and the pop feel of it. Could do with a little more punch/contrast, I feel.

Here's another from yesterday's meanderings.

Always been a great lover of fire escapes,
Ever since I photographed them in the cast iron district of New York city in the 70's.
It's always refreshing to find them here in Toronto.

Yep Lawrence, fire escapes have always been an attraction for me as well, although I don't think I would want to come down this one . . .

The overwhelming consensus is that the 6" is ridiculously small, and doomed to fail as a beauty dish.

From what I could see of Joe's article, he put a beauty dish on the SB 910 and boom, that's at least 16", maybe 20"/21".

Hopefully, Joe will respond!
You could try this website as well for Lumodi
I found it by accident, I decided to do a search of ebay for you and it popped up.

Thanks for the info, Friends!

kps and Lawrence, when I price everything, the Cheetah system comes in at $200, while the Lumodi comes in at closer to $300.

I've been holding off doing some serious portraits due to want of a beauty dish, so I'm going to make the leap and order the Cheetah system.

Thanks again!

Soy, I've really no idea; for one, the area is unfamiliar to me in the first place; two, when I get into a certain headspace I barely pay attention to which way I'm going, or where I'm headed... I kinda plunge down various backroads, idly looking for things to shoot. Great way to eat up time and gas. Luckily this time out I was in a fuel-sipper, so it was no great expense to bomb around here and there.

But yeah, I do remember seeing a sign for North Gower, so if that scene looks familiar to you, it may well be the place!
