  • Includes Storage Bag

The Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc is versatile in the field and in the studio, providing shadow-lightening detail in your subject, using available, or studio lighting. It starts out as a translucent white disc -- perfect for softening direct sun, or lights without diffusion. Use the removable, reversible zippered slipcover to reflect light into shadow areas of your subject. Your choice of color -- silver, gold, white, silver/gold mix -- will be determined by the lighting conditions, and your personal preference.

This 42" disc is suitable for 3/4 length portraits, and medium still-life setups. It folds down to 1/3 of its open size, and comes with a storage sleeve. We suggest the purchase of a pivoting arm and stand, to hold the disc where needed -- especially if you are working without an assistant.

Silver increases the specular highlights and yields a high-contrast image. Its perfect for video, product shots and B&W photography.
Soft gold is a mixture of warm and neutral hard reflections.
Gold produces a natural, golden fill that is great for sunsets, jewelry, and indoor portraits.
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.
Shape Round
Size Open 42" (106cm)
Size Collapsed 1/3 open size
Surfaces Translucent, white, silver, gold, silver-gold

      Priceless!

      I hook these things up to C Stands all the time and use the white bounce, sometimes heavy silver if I have to in extreme low light situations. They work like a charm!

      Not exactly what I expected

      The ring is somewhat flimsy and difficult to hold in the wind. I'll be able to use it, but wish I had bought the more expensive model by another manufacturer.

          I bought this because of it's versatility--many colors of reflector, including white (which is what I use the most). but it's not just a white reflector; the white is translucent and can be used as a thick diffuser to put a light through. a lot of useful stuff in a small package, easy to carry around but folds out into a very useful size.

            I was a little hesitant to buy this product because my thought was that these reflectors would be very weak and rip very easily. upon opening the package I noticed that in fact the construction of these reflectors is very solid and durable, I've used them a couple of times and I"ve gotten some amazing results. The reflector sides give you warmth and much needed light in shaded areas.

                    This reflector is great! I can't shoot outside without it! The different reflectors in it all work great and it's size is perfect for everything I need it for. When it is folded and put into it's carrying case it's small enough to fit into my grip bag which is very convenient. The only real issue is that it can be a pain to zip closed after changing surfaces but it isn't that big of a deal.

                      This 5 in 1 collapsible reflector, diffuser and absorbent has been a great addition to my photo equipment. Some times I use It to diffuse light, or reflect or absorb.

                          These Collapsible Discs are so easy to take on my outdoor photo shoots! Love how portable they are for traveling! I received them right before I was leaving for a flight and was able to quick slide them into my carry-on bag. Highly recommend these!

                                I really like the options that this pack gives you, however some drawbacks are that I can find is that there is only one frame for 3 covers which takes time to change out if you need to, also if you are not experienced at folding the frame or changing the covers then it might take some practice to learn how efficiently.

                                I needed to give my models a soft glow and this works perfectly....I love how its five in one so i dont have to lug multiple reflectors with me.

                                An absolute essential accessory for outdoor shooting. The different reflectors give you a great deal of control and choice in enhancing the natural light. The scrim is worth the price alone as it does an excellent job of turning harsh sun into a natural soft-box.

                                Only negative is it takes some practice to master folding it up and getting it in the case.

                                  This is a great product for the price. Offering the multiple color options. (silver/gold was a priority for me)
                                  Size is decent and easy to handle

                                    This device has made picture taking outside so much better. The different options of gold, amber, silver, and white are extremely useful. If you are one of those photographers who takes pictures with the sun as your backlight then the gold reflection is for you. I didn't even have to edit the pictures I took with the sun as a backlight using this thing. It was perfect. As well I had no trouble changing out the different colors by myself. The only con about this product is that you need someone else to help you hold it while you take pictures. But other than that this is a must for anyone who wants perfectly lit pictures.
