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 42" disc is suitable for a 3/4 length portrait, and a medium-size still-life setup. 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.

      I was talked into get this by a fellow photographer and since then i have grown to love this tool. i mainly travel with a large amount of gear and lighting, but since i got this it makes the decision to leave all that and just take this a lot more compelling. It can also act as a 5th light for me which i really like. All in all this is a great product and i would suggest it to anyone who really wants to get light to hard to reach areas without bringing a lot of gear.

      Less expensive than most refelctors but you get what you pay for. Had mine for about 2 years and not its beginning to flake.

      Not too bad if you know what you're getting. Just keep in mind the reflector is a short term solution. With time the reflective-pain surface will eventually fade-- quickly.

      Also horrible is the flakes get *everywhere* including one in one of my kit lenses. It was a cheap lens thankfully, but I've thrown the reflector in the gargabe in order to save my 5Dii the same fate.

        Really loving the silver instead of the usual gold you find in most reflectors! Gold is always just too warm. Wasn't sure how I'd feel, but I made the right choice.

        So far so good! The product is durable and does its purpose. It folds up quite easily (if you know what you're doing) The only thing I have noticed was that the silver side can easily be scratched.

                Took the reflector with me on vacation. I was able to have my kids turn away from the sun when taking a family beach picture. This way I didm't have the dark shadows on one side of their face and didn't have squinting eyes when facing the sun.

                  Not to mention, it was easy on the wallet as well. the reflector opens and collapses with a breeze. the perfect size for what I need it for. works as well in the studio as outdoors. comes in a convenient carrying case.

                      I don't know if this could be more perfect. It does everything you would want from a white and silver reflector.
                      I use this reflector during interviews to bounce light from the "key" light add to act as a "fill" light. That way I can carry one less light around with me when doing interviews but still have great lighting. I find 42" to be a perfect size for this purpose, and white and silver to be useful because they both reflect the light source in about the same temperature. I use the white side for less light, and the silver side for stronger light. The reflector easily collapses down and fits into some bag that is included. The build quality is good, and I think this will last me a long time.

                                    Does everything I expect. Creates great light. Very satisfied. A little large for a model to hold under their face. I'd suggest a smaller size if that's a reason for your purchase.

                                        This is a nice, solid, well-made reflector. It's the type of thing that takes up hardly any space, weighs almost nothing, yet there are days when you thank your lucky stars that you remembered to bring it along.
