Product Highlights
  • Gold, Silver, Black, White, Translucent

This is a Norman 5-in-1 42" Collapsible Reflector with reversible fabric cover. The disc with frame has a white, translucent fabric for diffusing sunlight or studio lights. Gold produces a natural, golden fill that is great for sunsets, jewelry, and indoor portraits. Silver increases the specular highlights and yields a high-contrast image. It's perfect for video, product shots and B&W photography. Solid white produces an even, neutral-colored bounce light that works beautifully as a fill light source for both product shots and indoor/outdoor portraits. Black prevents unwanted reflections and color contamination.

Guaranteed flat to create smooth, even reflections and give you control over your light source.
Folds down to 1/3 of its open size and stores easily in its own bag.

      The 42in. 5-in-1 works great as a reflector, and put it on a lightstand with a boom arm and you have a super quick-to-set-up gobo. I also love it with the black cover as a quick background for flower photography. It also fits perfectly in the lid of my Pelican 1550 case when I'm travelling.

        Comments about Norman Collapsible Reflector, 5-in-1 - 42" (107cm):

        I use this reflector for photography and video in many different situations. I use it to reflect the sunlight (the backlight) back to the subject and use it as a keylight when I'm shooting with only natural light. Also if you're using external lighting, it also helps to even out the lighting on your subject.
        The only drawback is that unless you have a stand you're going to have to have someone hold it for you, and if it's a windy day, prepared to feel like you're holding a giant kite.

          I use the reflector for fill light during outdoor protrait sessions. I like the effects of reflected light as opposed to artificial light. It is lightweight and easy to handle but can be tricky to fold and put back into bag. The quality is excellent and seems to be a great value when compared to some of the other reflectors especially regarding price.

            I bought this reflector out of necessity. I had been asked to do some outdoor portraits and I needed to do something to help with lighting. This reflector is great! It folds up easily without much fuss, and performs great. Putting the cover on the frame was a little cumbersome, but that was the only downside I really experienced.

            After two successful shoots with it, I can't wait to use it more both in and out of the studio!

            The reflector seems easy to work with and folds up nicely. I do wish there was a little more room in the carry case so that the fabric wasn't so close to the zipper, but otherwise, the quality is great. I love the versatility.

              I have used the black side as a background for a low key portrait. I must say it is quite a good product. A product like this however, would be better if it were wrinkle free.

              The reflectors are also pretty good at reflecting light evenly. Fro the price, this is a good product by many standards.

                          Even as a new photography student, I can tell that I got what I paid for. I bought used to save money, and to be honest it looks brand new. The only thing that I didn't like was the lack of instructions. I know it sounds odd for this type of product, but being new, I've never used one. A diagram for 'beginners'-showing how to fold it back up would be amazing. :)

                              I don't know how I waited this long to get a reflector. This item is essential for people photography. It should be considered a staple in my opinion. This one in particular is very well built. It is very large, and it folds to almost a quarter of its expanded size. All the different covers (silver, gold, black and white) seem of very high quality material, very durable. It is very light weight so it doesn't add to much load when travelling.

                                the fabric never get tight enough and that affect the light in my opinion. I wish I know that before I bought it. I would choose a single gold silver instead. The quality looks okay do.

                                  The 42in. 5-in-1 works great as a reflector, and put it on a lightstand with a boom arm and you have a super quick-to-set-up gobo. I also love it with the black cover as a quick background for flower photography. It also fits perfectly in the lid of my Pelican 1550 case when I'm travelling.
