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

You Pay: $39.90
Product Highlights
  • Collapsible
  • Gold/Silver/White/Black/Translucent

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)
Size Collapsed 1/3 open size
Surfaces Translucent, white, silver, gold, black

    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.

        If you are working with a very small crew and need to have plenty of options for daytime lighting, this worked amazingly well as a light and easy diffuser and reflector. Enjoy

            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.

                        Like how the reflectors are very compact having all 5 in one case.

                            This was the best possible gift I could give my wife for Christmas! She attempted to make her own silver, white, and gold reflectors using poster board and wrapping paper. Not only were they ineffective, but the crumpled up and were a real pain to transport. They took up the entire back of our SUV. Getting the Westcott 5 in 1 from B&H was the best decision I made this year!

                                Purchased as a gift for my wife and was not disappointed when it was opened. Great quality and good value for the money. Sturdy construction and it arrived on time. The online description accurately represents this product. I will be a repeat customer of other items it the near future!

                                Collapses almost to the size of a windshield cover. A bit heftier though. Seems well built and just the right size.

                                This is perfect for my use. It does what I want at a very affordable price. Plus, B&H is simply the best source for all my photography equipment and accessories.

                                The wescott 5 in 1 reflectors seems well made. The case seems like it should last and zippers seems OK. Only problem I noticed is that some of the black from the perimeter of the reflector marked the white reflector surface. Had to go online to figure out how to twist it back into the cases. Good product for the money.

                                Can't have enuf reflectors. Last bunch I bought were double the price..years ago.....lasted forever. We'll see about these Chinese made Westcotts if they can put up with location punishment.
