Product Highlights
  • 5 Light-Modifying Surfaces

The Interfit Collapsible 5-in-1 Reflector (42") offers the ultimate in reflective light control. It's a 42" (106 cm) diameter steel band disc covered with white translucent fabric, with a reversible slipcover that converts it to 4 additional light modifiers:

Gold produces a natural, golden fill that is great for jewelry and indoor portraits.

Black can be used to block or absorb light.

Silver increases the specular highlights and yields a high-contrast image.

White produces an even, neutral-colored bounce light that works beautifully as a fill light source for both product shots and indoor/outdoor portraits.

Translucent fabric is used to diffuse light, producing a broad light source and a soft, wraparound effect that's perfect for outdoor portraits or whenever a softer light is needed.

Creates smooth, even reflections and give you control over your light source

      For it's price, this reflector is not too bad. It is my second reflector and I have only had the chance to use it once. The best part is that it does so much by having 5 surfaces and collapsing so small. On the other hand the build quality isn't terrific. As reflectors age, they fall out of round, but the first time this came out of the bag it was already out of round. The zipper for the outer shell was also poor quality. It took no time to unzip it, but about 10 minutes to carefully zip it back shut. It makes me not want to open the shell too often. On the plus side, once the shell dies, I'll still personally use it as a translucent reflector. For outdoor work or shoot through with a strobe.

        Just purchased the Interfit 5-in-one collapsible 42 inch reflector. I had an opportunity to use it for a portrait shoot and it makes a great difference. I've always used ambient light but the reflector did wonders to eliminate and lighten shadows. The product is about as simple to use as it is possible to be. Took me 5 minutes to master the "put back in the case" thing. I wish I'd bought one sooner.

              What can you say about a collapsible 5-in-1 Reflector. It reflects, defuses, or blocks light in a variety of colors and collapses down to a fraction of it's expanded size for easy travel. It's an awesome cheap investment and very helpful on set when trying to achieve the right lighting scheme for a scene.

              I have used it for the past 3 years, but have been renting/borrowing. Finally bought my own! It does just what you need with the 5 in 1 option. Vercitale, light, compact and great quality. You will enjoy working with natural light!

                I used it to photograph a couple and i loved the outcome.
                I love every piece of it. especially you are able to control light on your client and that is awesome.
                To be fair with you, there is nothing that i don't like about my 5-in-1 Reflector.

                  I purchased this primarily for outdoor portraits, but expect to use it for any situations when I need to better manage the available light. I had a small one (either an 18" or 20") that proved itself not big enough to shield the direct sunlight when taking outldoor portraits. The 42" is perfect, and I love the easy zip off covers to get the right tone.

                          I use it outdoors to reduce deep shadows on models' faces. Works like a charm, and you get a lot for the money. I especially like the translucent base! Also, the size is perfect!! Many people say it is difficult to collapse, but I don't have this problem - I guess it is a matter of practicing, and having long enough hands to reach both ends.
                          If I must complain about something, then it will be the fact that you can't have silver and white sides at the same time: it's either silver with black, or white with gold.

                              whip it out in a second, and when done, folds back up and back in pouch in a second, really like the light wieght for long trips, since I always carry one wherever my camera gear goes, really good all in one

                                      Exactly what I was looking for. Folds up small and is light weight. It would be nice to have folding instruction with it though. When you open it the first time and then try to fold it back, it could be a real problem. Good thing I owned band saw blades that folds the same way. You have to twist both ends with both hands at the same to to get it folded so you can get it back in the case.

                                          is very well made it and good for the prize, probably you could get a cheaper one in other pages, but i personally can say this works perfectly with no risk of loosing money

                                              I was looking for a 5-in-1 reflector to replace my previous set. The 42" size turns out to be a little larger than my previous set, and the size is nice. It is quite portable, with a handle on the outter shell. It just misses fitting into my camera bag (carry-on size), but that isn't a big issue as I can squeeze it in anyway. So far, it has been a good set.
