This Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc is a versatile lighting tool for in the field and in the studio. It allows you to bring out the shadow detail in your subject, using available or studio lighting. The disc's translucent surface softens direct or harsh light.

This 12" disc is suitable for accenting small areas of a portrait, and very small still-life setups. It folds down to 1/3 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.

Translucent white produces a soft light that works beautifully for both product shots and indoor/outdoor portraits.

        Comments about Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - White Translucent - 12":

        When I'm out hiking I don't want to carry any more than necessary, but sometimes need to diffuse light or bounce it to enhance a flower or a detail in a rock. This little disc is perfect for that. Because it is quite small, it won't affect a very big area but it's great for closeup details. And so flat and lightweight you don't even know you have it. The only warning is: Be careful when you take it out of the sleeve for the first time. It's folded for storage and the springy rim will literally pop into full frame. I jumped about a foot in surprise! So now I wrap a heavy rubber band around it when folded so I can get ahold of the rim and unfold it slowly!

          This is a perfect size for macro work. I also use occasionally for wedding ring shots and decorative items around wedding venue.

                this collapses down fine. the wire rim frame is much heavier than another 12" disc i own. this means it feels sturdier, but also makes it a thicker and heavier package in the camera bag, and thus less compact. however, the carrying case is smaller in diameter and a tighter fit than my other, so that's a plus. and since we're talking about a small item anyway, it doesn't really prevent it being a great deal for the money!

                        Perfect for Macro out in direct sunlight when the need for difussed light will make the difference. Extremely portable.

                            Great for macro work! The collapsed size can almost fit in a back pocket! As an alternative to this size, the 22-in may have a bit more use, but for the price and high portability this 12-in disk is great! Easy to hold in moderate to strong winds.

                            This reflector is great for small product or macro photography. I thought it would be hard to fold up but it was not. It is very small and portable. I have read that many like the small size for just this reason but I think I would go slightly bigger next time. I think you could get a slightly larger size and still be very portable. No real complaints, however, and this product deserves 5 stars.

                                The collapsable wire frame seems strong and looks like it will withstand alot of use. I am very happy with every aspect of this reflector. It's very well built and had the best price I could find for the size and variations. I also love that it came with a compact carrying case! I would definitely recommend this product to others.

                                  Folds up and fits in your pocket (or the small case provided) . Great for softening flash or reflecting for fill. The affect is obvious on each shot. On top of all that, you can't beat the price.

                                    Nice small reflector. I'm using it with a plamp

                                    Just what I needed. Tames harsh light on close up work in the field. Seems to be well made, cleans easily if it gets some dirt on it. Light and folds small so carrying it is a joy.

                                      While most reflectors are a little too strong to use on the shady side of a face on a sunny day, this white one is soft enough to do the trick, and small enough to hold without becoming a parachute in the wind. It's just right.

                                        This disk is perfect for portrait use,especially children, or adult close up shots. It softens the light from a flash (shoot through) or will defuse sunlight on a face. It is also easy to carry, takes up almost no space can attach onto a light stand or tripod using any small clamp. I also use it in the studio for still life shooting through it with a flash to give a soft even light on the product.

                                          Not as heavy duty as some of the other brands of collapsible reflectors, but it's heavy duty enough. It is the perfect size for flowers and similar sized subjects. It packs in a camera bag easily and is a cinch to use provided you have an assistant. If not, pack along some clamps, holders, stands or somthing to keep the reflector in place.
