Product Highlights
  • Folds to 1/3 Open Size
  • Includes Storage Bag

This is a Photoflex 42" (107cm), White Translucent LiteDisc Diffuser 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 Diffuser 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.

        Comments about Photoflex LiteDisc Diffuser Circular Reflector, White Translucent, 42" (107cm):

        This works well as a reflector, a backdrop and it's a terrific diffuser. I keep a variety of Litedisc sizes and colors and use them frequently, both inside and out. They allow me to better control the light without resorting to extra light sources.

        Along with a good tripod, a set of Litedisc with a stand or two provide tremendous "bang-for-the-buck" in light control.

        I often use them with the Manfrotto backlight stand when doing macro in the yard. Gives me more light and opens up the shadows - or - neutralizes direct sunlight when it appears too "hot".

              Comments about Photoflex LiteDisc Diffuser Circular Reflector, White Translucent, 42" (107cm):

              I bought this product for outdoor portraiture, but use it for not only portraits of people, but also flowers where the direct lighting needs to be softened. It works easily like a cloud crossing between the sun and the subject diffusing (scattering the lighting) and creating a softer lighting source.

              It is well built, opens easily and quickly, and folds back down for easy storage.

              The only problem is that you need a stand or another person to hold the disk in place, as any wind will turn it into a sail and carry it away. Photoflex makes a stand on which I place a ballast to keep everything upright and standing on breezy days.

                  Pricey but light and it packs very small. Appears to be very well made, and works great. Be careful the first time you open one - it unfolds almost instantly, it's rather startling.

                    I used it in bright sun to create an even light source. It was beautiful light. I also used it in deep woods for a portrait shot to provide fill. It worked well in both scenarios.

                      If you ever do outdoor portraits at a time other than that perfect couple of minutes just before sunset, a diffuser is an exellent aid. It does very well at softening hard shadows and elimenating the squinty looks from your subject. And as an added bonus, it works extremely well for getting a horse to look alert for a photo. Although, discretion is advised in order to avoid having your subject buck off. As with all the PhotoFlex exuiptment that I've used, this seems to be a well made and durable product. The 42 inch size works well for waist up or sitting portraits of one person or two if they aren't too large. Trying to do more than that might be somthing of a feat.
