Product Highlights
  • Gold, Silver, White, Black and Translucent Disc with Stand and Adjustable Pivot Arm

The Westcott 40.5" 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Kit is versatile in the field and in the studio, providing shadow-lightening detail in your subject, using available, or studio lighting. It starts out as a translucent white disc -- perfect for softening direct sun, or lights without diffusion. Use the removable, reversible zippered slipcover to reflect light into shadow areas of your subject. Your choice of color -- silver, gold, white, black mix -- will be determined by the lighting conditions, and your personal preference.

This 40.5" (1 m) disc is suitable for 3/4 length portraits, and medium still-life setups. It folds down to 1/3 its open size, and comes with a storage sleeve. The kit includes a pivoting arm and 7.5' stand to hold the disc where needed, which is especially useful if you are working without an assistant. 

Silver increases the specular highlights and yields a high-contrast image. It's perfect for video, product shots and B&W photography.
Gold produces a natural, golden fill that is great for sunsets, jewelry, and indoor portraits.
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 black side diminishes unwanted reflections or color casts.
Translucent fabric is used to diffuse light, producing a broad light source and a soft, wraparound effect that's perfect for outdoor portraits or whenever a softer light is needed.

    In my opinion, there is not a huge difference between reflectors. This one is great. I love that it is so easily converted. It is the perfect size for just about all of my uses (portrait and wedding work). I use it alone more than half the time. The stand is a little flimsy, but it works fine.

    Bad.
    - Zippers are not good quality and they tend to jam.
    - The arm joint didn't have enough strength to keep the arm up and it wouldn't tighten anymore. It required some rigging and disassembling of the joint, moving couple of washers around until I got it to work.

      Works well for my purposes. The stand is more substantial than I was expecting. Have not attempted to use this outside. 4 stars due to the reflector zippers being difficult to use, have to bend the reflector frame down/away from the zipper when closing otherwise the zipper does not move.

      Comments about Westcott 5-in-1 Reflector Disc - 40.5":

      I purchased this product a while ago and although the reflector works fine, the stand is pretty cheap construction. The stand fell over once and part of the plastic cracked making it hard to extend up. I use gaff tape to secure it. Aside from that, the stand is not the sturdiest so I would recommend sandbags to keep it grounded. As for the reflector itself, it works good! The white fill side doesn't work as well as a fill card I've noticed. However, you can't go wrong with having a 5-in-1 reflector. I would purchase it separately and buy a more sturdy stand or, if it's in the budget, hire an assistant. I still recommend this kit especially if you don't have a large budget and need something for outdoor photography. Just be careful with the stand.

      Use for indoor/outdoor shooting. I like the variety and the results. The zipper is made cheaply and can take long time to take on and off. I've only used it a couple of times and it feels like it's going to break any minute. I would think that if the whole point is to switch back and forth with the different options they would make a better zipper.

      The reflector disk is enormous! I have not had a chance to use the stand yet, but I do think you'd want to use a weight on top of the tripod, especially outside, since the reflector disk is so big.

        I was pleasantly surprised how heavy duty the stand and support arm are. (I probably shouldn't be, since I've owned Westcott products before, and they are always top quality). The reflectors are easy to change, and I love that you can use the main circle to diffuse direct sunlight!

          Make ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY CERTAIN that you get a counterbalance to go with this, because if there's the slightest breeze, this baby is a sail. There are a LOT cheaper reflector kits out there, which I discovered afterward, but if you're a one-man show like I am, having the stand with this is worth a premium. Very helpful for outdoor photo and video shoots!

                Great product for low budget photographers. The Zipper sticks a bit though and I have the feeling it will wear out fairly quickly compared to some other brands I've used.

                  Having the stand to replace an assistant in some cases is beneficial. The stand itself does require weights to hold it down. Love the flexibility of this product and the size of the disc is perfect and compact. I wish this item came with a carrying case.

                    I do photoshoots and shoot videos. The reflector helps me manage the lighting that I want to achieve with what I'm doing. I love the kit because it allows me to have it stsanding, or I can hold it myself depending on what I need it for.

                      This reflector is great for the price. I have had no complaints on the reflector. Good size, good quality.

                      The stand in this kit is a little bit disappointing. The stand is not air cushioned. The stand/arm are a little heavy. The lock knobs are really small. It feels as though you have to over tighten the locks to keep the stand/reflector arm from shifting. But it does perform fine. Usually, once you have the reflector set, you won't have to change it much.

                      This kit is a fantastic first reflector/stand buy.

                            This product is easily transported and light weight. It is not a good quality item. It falls over and it is hard to get the reflector to stay on the arm. Cannot get the arm to hold up the reflector-- it constantly falls and hits the ground. You will need someone to hold the reflector, if possibly, or, if you are a solo photography, I would suggest just purchasing the reflector and making your own device to hold the item.

                              I think overall the kit works really well. You might need sand bags while positioning it at certain angels, but that's totally reasonable. The Stand and arm's quality is good. the clamps grab the reflector tightly. I'm pretty happy with it.

                              The 5-1 reflector is a also made with good quality materials and flexible. zipper is good doesn't catch.

                                I bought a 5 in one reflector in [@] at 148 $ without any review. The thing [...] looks very fragile. After watching my error on the floor I ordered fron B&H the 5 in 1 from Wescott. Actually is a kit[...]sturdy stand, dvd, the arm which rotate on ball head can be put in any position. You just miss a sand bag for outdoor photography. I recommend this item.

                                We are using this product for inside and outside production. The reflectors have really enhanced our productions and video work. It has given us more control and flexibility over the type of light we are working with. It's compact and folds away, so storage for this kit is easy to find, it's great.
