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 42" disc is suitable for 3/4 length portrait and medium 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.

        I bought this product to diffuse the afternoon sunlight on a photo shoot. It made beautiful soft, diffused light out of hard, harsh light. What's great about it is it's big size, and collapsible design. When you pack it up, it's no bigger than a medium pizza. It's tricky trying to get it folded for storage, but it just takes practice.

          Comments about Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - White Translucent - 42":

          I like to use this reflector as a diffuser - in bright sun light or a hot light. I have used this when taking photographs of flowers. The 42" diameter covers the blooms and the surrounding leaves/branches which works better for me. Yesterday, I used the reflector to diffuse Sunlight on 2' x 1.5' planter. I can hang the bag for this Reflector on one of the knobs of my tripod. And I found that I can put my smaller reflectors in that bag with it - I placed two 12" reflectors, a 22" as well as a 12" Grey Card reflector in its bag, yesterday. Also, it's easy to fold up. I'm not exactly well coordinated with fold-up items, but I have no problems folding up this reflector.

            I´m very happy with this choice as it is large enough to cover enough when needed. I use it over a skylight for diffusing sunlight when shooting in my studio room. Got to improvise! This works great and pack away just as easy for travel.

              I use this for most of my photography work and it has been fantastic. It allows me to shoot no matter what the sun is doing as well as get rid of odd shadows. I have had it for over 6 month and it seems just like its new. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who takes their photography seriously.

                This translucent reflector acts as an excellent diffuser turning harsh sunlight into a beautful soft bank.

                Like all of Impact's products it is well built, collapses easily, and seems quite durable.

                        This actually works wonderfully as a one stop diffuser if you're shooting outdoors in midday light. It is very portable (folds down to one third the size) so easy to have along.

                            This is my first reflector and I used it to bounce my flash off for indoor portraits as well as to shade the sun (eliminate contrasty light spots) for some outdoor pics and I loved the results. It's hard to manage without an assistant or a stand, but I knew that would be the case. I wish there was some kind of fabric handle or tab which could be used for clamping it to furniture or trees. The frame seems solid and it folds easily.

                                    This diffuser is even larger than I thought it would be. It is good quality and works really well as both a reflector and a diffuser. I plan to buy an Impact 42" 5 in one reflector set and I can use the covers on this diffuser as well.

                                    Because of the size, it can be difficult to use if it is windy but with someone assisting it is easily handled.

                                    The effect is absolutely beautiful. A diffuser is an integral part of any photographer's kit and this one fits the bill for the value.

                                      I bought this for the size and because it was not as expensive as other diffusers. It arrived the day before a shoot of an infant I had scheduled. The soft light it produced couldn't have been any better.

                                        Comments about Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - White Translucent - 42":

                                        Great size. Easy to collapse. Great results.
                                        Be sure to put the loop around your wrist or it'll take off like a sail in the wind.
