I was so happy when it arrived! This is my first reflector I have ever bought. It is in a great bag for transporting, and very light. I was happy that it takes about 5 seconds to set up and about 10 to take down (once you get the hang of " folding" it). Great product and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a portable reflector.

The larger the light source in relationship to your subject, the softer the light. And this is a decent size! It is very flimsy and needs a brace to be useful even without wind. Meaning, if I am trying to use the reflector as a main light and therefore come from above the subject, it will fold without a brace. In that regard, you are almost better off buying a collapsable frame.

    Comments about Lastolite 4x6' Reflector - Silver/White:

    I had been using a smaller reflector, and it was time to get a proper large reflector. I'm glad I did.

    Not only does it work great as a reflector, but I've used the white side as a makeshift white background for headshots.

    My only complaint is the built quality. I know it is not expected to be sturdy at this pricepoint, however, I have a background from impact within similar price range that is built MUCH better than this.

    This is the first reflector I have purchased, but it does a very nice job. At times it takes two to handle it, when the wind picks up it's a little like a kite. Then again, it is big, so what to expect. Both side can be used which is nice. It is not the most stable reflector, but again, I knew that going in because of the size it is when expanded and how small it is when it is in the case. Over all I do like it a lot.

      Comments about Lastolite 4x6' Reflector - Silver/White:

      Bought this because it was a huge collaspible reflector. Price was cheaper than others I have seen in this same size. It arrives in a compact circle bag which makes it easy to travel with . I first had a hard time getting it back to the circle form shape after opening it up completely but after a couple times have got the hang of bringing it back to circle small form shape. ( basically going corner to corner and twisting it . It didn't come with instructions but has been quite easy to use, and i couldn't be happier with my purchase, also purchased the accompanying boom stand to hold.

      It's huge, but does an amazing job of reflecting the entire subject. A bit tricky to fold up at first, but I watched a video on how to do it quick and never had a problem since.

      Comments about Lastolite 4x6' Reflector - Silver/White:

      I use this big reflector for interior photography and food and tabletop photography. It provides big, soft light, but folds down small and stores easily. Love it so far. I laughed at the other reviewers complaining about there being a lack of instructions for folding it back up, until the first time I tried this.... I took 20 minutes of wrestling and laughing before I finally figured it out. Even though it's big, you just grab the long ends and twist just like you would a small one. Hope this helped

      So great to use. I have always had a tiny reflector which was really only good for small children. This reflector is great because I can actually light just about anything from big families, one or two people. Great for a fill light and any kind of product photography.
      The only bad thing about this is its hard to fold up. Just takes some practice though.

        This reflector is nicer than I expected it to be. It's lightweight, huge, durable, and easy to open and collapse. It is large enough to light a full body, not just the face. I use reflectors in all my photography. I use the white side when I just need a little bump and the silver when I really need extra light. Love it!

                This product would be far superior if it came with a little slip of paper that showed you how best to collapse it easily back into its circle form to fit into its case.

                And how it would be best attached to the stand would be nice too.

                Otherwise it is fine, huge and useful.

                        I bought this reflector to use for full bridal portraits. I haven't used it on an actual bride yet, but after takeing it outside to see what it can do I can't wait to try it out. It is BIG and can reflect a lot of light. It's a little flimsy and would most likely be a nightmare in any kind of wind, but that's to be expected on something this size.

                          For anyone, professional or serious amateur, that uses available lighting as a main light source, this is a must have!

                          It is very large, but because of this, can even be used without an assistant and placed on the ground in front of your subject for that extra bit of light.

                          The only issue would be the fact that it definitely takes some practice in being able to fold it away when finished with it...
