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 41 x 74" oval disc is suitable for a full length portrait, and a large-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.

Silver is highly specular offering high contrast and maximum fill light.
White produces an even, neutral-colored bounce light that works beautifully as a fill light source for both product shots and indoor/outdoor portraits.

      The only thing this reflector is lacking is a velcro strap or two on one of its long sides, for securing to a light stand. (There is a loop on top for hanging from a cross-bar.)

      Expertise: Professional

      Problems Encountered: I read the previous review before buying this reflector, and was consequently a little hesitant, but it fits my needs and I'm mechanically inclined, so I bought one, prepared to figure out how to collapse it when I got it.It arrived this week, so I spent 1/2 hour last night trying to collapse it by myself, to no avail. (I'm very pleased with the way it stood up to the abuse I gave it trying to get it to collapse.)This morning, I asked my lovely, mechanically challenged, wife to give me a hand with it, and she said let me try it first. She successfully folded it on her first attempt (in about 5 seconds). So now I'm very satisfied with the reflector, I have newfound admiration for my better half, and I plan to have her teach me how to do it after work tonight!

              I use this refector in my home studio for portraits. Due to its size, it can be used for full-length portrait shots. I haven't used it on location, but it folds down into a small size, is really lightweight and is portable.

                The silver side wasn't as shinny as I thought it would be, though it is a pretty good size and does the trick, i would still use another small reflector to highlight details like the face.

                  Comments about Impact Collapsible Oval Reflector Disc - Silver/White - 41x74":

                  I use this to bounce light in for fill, from sources in the scene (sun, sky) or lights in my setup. Great large, neutral color bounce source

                  Reflections from the silver side can be spotty and hard to control, but do have more "punch" and reach which can be a lifesaver.

                  Springs out to a firm flat sheet, not too flimsy.

                  It can be tricky to fold back up -- the included instructions give the correct method, and it DOES work, but sometimes can be balky. With practice it becomes quicker and easier to find the right "twist of the wrist."

                    Good quality and does what it is suppose to.
                    A little difficult to fold up, but comes with directions on how to do it.

                        I use this in my home studio with one Alien Bee 800. It reflects the light perfectly and my images are perfectly lit. I couldn't drop another $500 dollars for another strobe so I went with this little device and it is well worth it.

                            I find this to be a very useful size for a reflector and it compacts back into its packaging nicely... once you find out the trick. Comes with instructions though!

                            It works great, I just wish they would have included folding instructions. Either way, after practicing for about 30 minutes I was able to master the contortions required to pack it away.

                              I've worn out a couple of similar products made by other companies, the most recent being one that lost it's flatness due to warping of the metal hoop. The Impact reflector has a thicker, more rigid metal hoop that holds the fabric very flat and taut. I also appreciate that it is wider than the competing brand.

                                  I use it as a back-up and more portable solution to my larger Lastolite Skylite Medium Reflector kit (uses an aluminum frame). Folds down to a small diameter and just works. Only complaint is that the black ring around the outside of the reflector is starting to fray. Also, my reflector came with a big mark on the white side of the panel. For the price I paid for this, it wasn't worth it to return the item. I've used this as a white background in a pinch, and it worked surprisingly well. Very very useful and a must for any portrait photographer.

                                      use it for reflection, diffusion, and shade. also great as a throw down.
                                      packs small. great compliment to the skrim jim.

                                      The only thing this reflector is lacking is a velcro strap or two on one of its long sides, for securing to a light stand. (There is a loop on top for hanging from a cross-bar.)

                                      Expertise: Professional

                                      Problems Encountered: I read the previous review before buying this reflector, and was consequently a little hesitant, but it fits my needs and I'm mechanically inclined, so I bought one, prepared to figure out how to collapse it when I got it.It arrived this week, so I spent 1/2 hour last night trying to collapse it by myself, to no avail. (I'm very pleased with the way it stood up to the abuse I gave it trying to get it to collapse.)This morning, I asked my lovely, mechanically challenged, wife to give me a hand with it, and she said let me try it first. She successfully folded it on her first attempt (in about 5 seconds). So now I'm very satisfied with the reflector, I have newfound admiration for my better half, and I plan to have her teach me how to do it after work tonight!

                                      How do you fold one of these?

                                      There isn't much to say about it except that it's great andcovers a huge area. The case it comes in is nice and 3 timessmaller than the unfolded reflector. The only thing that Ican't find is how one person can fold it. I needed help fromsomeone else to get it back to it's collapsed form to fit itin its sleeve. That is the only bad thing about it. Nodocumentation, no instructions included...

                                      Problems Encountered: No instructions that demonstrate how to fold it.

                                      Items I Recommend: Two of these.
