The Westcott 40.5" 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector 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. We suggest the purchase of a pivoting arm and stand, to hold the disc where needed -- especially if you are working without an assistant. To order this disc with a stand and an arm: Click here.

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.
Shape Round
Size Open 40.5" (1 m)

    The Westcott reflector does everything it’s designed to do. I use it mainly in the field as its large enough to actually block the sun when needed. Smaller reflectors simply can’t perform this aspect as well as larger reflectors. If you are used to smaller reflectors you will be amazed at how much more light this will produce so there may be a short learning curve. When not in use, folded and placed in the bag / pouch it takes up very little space.

    The zipper works well on mine though I read reviews from a couple of reviewers prior to deciding to purchase who stated that they experienced zipper issues with theirs. My only though after actually using mine is that the shell is reversible and as such the tab on the zipper works from both sides of the zipper head, traveling on the bracket or bar from side to side. Possibly the zipper tab had slid to the inside? In any case, zippers can at times be or become defective after repeated use but mine works fine. Just be sure that when you fold the reflector up to put in the bag / pouch that the fabric is positioned toward the inside of the reflector so it doesn’t get caught in the zipper as that will cause problems.

    The only negative on using a reflector of this size on location is wind. Don’t forget to take your smaller reflectors along if it’s a windy day as you may get tired of fighting with it.

    Good size for working outdoors - big enough to get soft light, but not so big that you'll fly away on a windy day. Many kits don't include black, and I'm glad this one does because there are times where a gobo is necessary and it's one less item I need to bring along. The down side, though, is the zipper for the reflector panels. I treat things very delicately, and after only three color changes, the zipper got stuck, and then actually broke. So, get a few little clips as well for when the zipper breaks.

    It's a reflector....

    By Jason

    from Texas

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

    5 in 1.... Replacement for my old rag of a reflector that has no further use but as a sun shade for the car. Decently built, zipper could be more robust. Feel like it will give out before the reflector will. Time will tell if it holds up.

      This is my first reflector, couldn't be happier with the product and size. Be sure to view YouTube Videos on how to collapse, definitely a challenge for the rookie!

        I am a photographer who has mainly been doing food photography in natural lighting situations. The Westcott reflector disc is an excellent companion on these shoots when you need a little extra light bouncing off the dish you're shooting. Compact and lightweight, too. Highly recommended!

          I use this primarily as a reflector (not so much for diffusion). It works great outdoors using the sun as the light source, and just as good indoors with production lighting. Buying a reflector with 5 surfaces to choose from is a no-brainer. The quality is also top-notch. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a reflector set.

                  Nice tool. You need to make a judgement call on the size you select.
                  This 40 inch is good for a lot of things portraits, macro. It folds up to about a 16 inch circle, so I won't be carrying it around unless I think i will use it.

                      I didn't use it but once as it didn't fit well into my day pack. The zipper seemed a little flaky compared to the small photoflex I have been usuing for the last eight years.

                        I love it! The Westcott 5-in-1 Reflector is perfect for on location shoots or in studio shoots. Easy to handle and portable makes it the perfect companion to take anywhere. It has all the colors I need in one product! Again, I love it!!

                          Mainly I needed the diffuser, but found that I can use a hoola hoop inside the removal reflector(s) and get 2 tools for the price of one.
