Photoflex LiteDisc Circular Reflector, Soft Gold/White Opaque, 12" (30.5cm)

You Pay: $19.95
Product Highlights
  • Folds to 1/3 Open Size
  • Includes Storage Bag

This is a Photoflex 12" (30.5cm), Soft Gold/White Opaque LiteDisc collapsible reflector. Photoflex LiteDiscs and MultiDiscs are designed for use in the studio, or on location. They add light to shadow areas, add or subtract color casts, or diffuse harsh light.

LiteDiscs come in a variety of sizes: 12, 22, 32, 42, 52" circular, and 41 x 74" Oval.
MultiDiscs are available in 22, 32 and 42" circular sizes. MultiDiscs start as a White Translucent disc, with a reversible slipcover that provides white, silver, gold and soft gold surfaces.

Pick the size that is right for the size of your subject. Pick the color combination that is right for the ambient light, or your creative direction.

Each LiteDisc has a sturdy spring-steel frame that is covered by a heavy duty white fabric. With a twist of both wrists (and a little practice), they collapse to 1/3 their open sizes. Each comes with a nylon storage bag.

Insure consistency and ease of placement by ordering a LiteDisc Holder. The holder, combined with a light stand, acts as a second pair of hands, locking the disc in the exact desired position. The holder also helps your assistant hold the disc flat and steady, especially in outdoor breezes.

Sturdy Construction
Guaranteed flat to create smooth, even reflections and give you control over your light source
  • Double laminated to prevent light from going through the surface, giving you more reflection on your subject
  • Double riveted for added strength to prevent breaking and maintain the firm shape of the Disc
Flat or Bent
  • Position the disc flat for an even fill
  • Bend the disc slightly for a more concentrated fill effect
Available LiteDisc Colors and Functions
  • White Opaque - Produces an even, neutral-colored bounce light that works beautifully as a fill light source for both product shots and indoor/outdoor portraits
  • Silver - Silver increases the specular highlights and yields a high-contrast, neutral to cool fill, depending on your main light source
  • Gold - Same as silver, but with a warm tone -- best used outdoors near sunrise or sunset
  • Soft Gold - Combination of gold and silver in a zebra pattern, with a semi-matte surface -- best for all-round fill
  • White Translucent - Softens harsh light sources, may also be used as a reflector
  • Black - Subtracts reflected light and color casts from intense backgrounds
Note: See product description for specific colors included on each disc.

        Excellent quality!
        Just the right size for available or bounced light in macro.
        The gold side really lights up the subject with a warm light.
        Folds into a thin 6" diameter zippered bag.

          Somewhat softer gold than I was expecting, but I think more acceptable than the full gold which is bit too much. The tinting by the soft gold just warms rather than significantly changing the color of my macro subjects.

              Folds nice and compactly, light. I carried it in my pack virtually everywhere. Used it infrequently but nice to have when needed. At 3-4 years suddenly starting shedding tiny silver specks. Photoflex agreed that serial# was within 5 yr warranty and images I sent confirmed coating failure but insisted on having a receipt. I received as a gift from my son who didn't have receipt retained.....5 yrs??? Not the end of the world at $12-15 but enough to cause pause re replacing, let alone buying other larger ones at least of the same brand.

              Worst thing was that tiny specks were all over my hand AND the camera after handling the reflector. Can you imagine if I'd changed lens, ie gotten specks inside the sensor chamber?
