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. In addition, the colored surface allows you to modify the color of your subject. Your choice of color -- silver or white -- will be determined by the lighting conditions, and your personal preference.

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.

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

        This reflective Disc folds small enough to fit any camera bag and is light enough to go anywhere. I use it for outdoor macro shooting whena bit more light is needed on the subject.

          I have large reflectors that are great when you have time and help on a shoot. However for those times I'm alone or don't want to bother with larger reflectors the small 12" reflector works great. It is tiny when in its pouch and jumps out in an instant ready for use. Collapsible? Yes but it does take some work to get it back into its tiny pouch. I recommend it to all.

            Disc very usefull for macro photography like wedding rings, flowers and insect. Very handy for tight spaces. The way I use it is I have one translusent and another silver and white, then I position the flash in between them attached with white hook and loop and walla! Photos looks perfect.

              Great to have around for detail shots. Small enough to handle on your own but bounces good amount of fill light where you need it.

                    I do a lot of food and product photography using smaller sets - having this smaller size reflector makes a huge difference and allows me to get in close to bounce light wherever I need it.

                          I keep this tiny little guy attached to my camera bag & it has been so useful for food shoots. Just hold it in one hand and aim that light exactly where you want it & snap! It folds up SO small, it's actually cute. A great little featherweight tool for your kit. Feels sturdy & well made.

                                The material was a little scratched but has no affect on the function of the reflector. Great for small shoots or lighting a face during a portrait.

                                  See the review I wrote regarding the 22" version of this reflector. It is lightweight, easily packable and invaluable in low-light conditions

                                      I really like this reflector. It's small size makes it easy to stuff in a cargo pocket. It is very bright...almost too bright when working close with people. The white side is fine..but filling hard shadows requires the silver side and backing up quite a bit.. all in all I'm Very happy with this reflector

                                      When working on macro work, my camera has to be so close in to the work that I have very little extra space for lighting, backdrops, cords, etc. This made it almost impossible for a good reflector to work, as it would cause more shadows. I needed someway to control shadows without making it impossible to look at the shots prior to pulling the trigger. This little reflector did the job as well as being a nice price.

                                          I love my reflectors, they work great! Not so useful at sunset, may need to order more eqiptment.

                                            I can carry it in my camera vest and have my grip use it for illumination in bright sun under the brim of cowboy hats. Better than trying to operate a light!! Like silver on one side and white on the other.

                                            The reflector works well in bright light, but not fantastic in ambient room light. The material used could be more reflective to be much more useable using constant lighting.

                                            Using one of the larger size reflectors would give you more light to work with.

                                            The small size (12" extended and ~5" collapsed)makes this reflector easily portable.
