Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - Gold/Silver - 12"

B&H # IMRD12GS Mfr # R1812
You Pay: $9.95
Product Highlights
  • Reversible

The Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc is a versatile lighting tool for in the field and in the studio. It allows you to bring out the shadow detail in your subject, using available or studio lighting. In addition, the colored surface allows you to modify the color of your subject. Your choice of color -- silver or gold -- will be determined by the lighting conditions and your personal preference.

This 12" disc is suitable for accenting small areas of a portrait and very small still-life setups. It folds down to 1/3 of 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.

Gold creates a warm, summery feel that works great with skin tones near sunrise or sunset.
Silver produces a neutral-colored highlight that works beautifully as a fill light source for both product shots and indoor/outdoor portraits.

      This 12 inch reflector is just perfect for close-up or macro shots of flowers. It helps me put the amount of light just where I want it to be in those otherwise dark or shadowed areas (ie. lower petals). Advantage over flash (direct or remote), is that I can see just what I will get. I shoot in conservatories a lot and have found it very helpful. I recommend the item highly and suggest using both silver and gold sides of the reflector.
      Additionally, if folds up into a small package which fits into a pouch supplied with the product.

      These reflectors are great, however this 12" one is pointless! I didn't want to give it 1 star, because these actual gold and silver reflectors work wonders when trying to light up a scene, but this specific size really does nothing. If you wanted to light up a bug, this would work. I use the gold side to light up people, it adds a beautiful glow to skin tones, and the silver works well for everything else

        I bought several of these for a photography camp for kids and they loved them. They are small so their value is limited to one face or a small setup, or just a ray of light across a larger scene. Handy, worth it to have a couple in the bag.

          I love the size, an easy fit into a camera bag. The zipped nylon cover, works very well to corral this little wonder. Twisting the reflector into a small circle, wasn't hard at all. Best was the effect of the golden reflection on a dragonfly and a blooming orchid. Can't wait to use this on our photography travels!

            Useful for filling in shadows a bit on macro subjects. I don't think it would do much for larger objects, except maybe as a flash bounce target, but I'm only interested in using it for macro subjects.Folding it to get it back in the bag was a little challenging. It is quite springy; when you start to unfold it it pops into shape like a jack in the box. Folding it back up took several tries and views of the how-to video; I was afraid I'd tear it so was being very careful ... but it has held up well to my gorilla hands.If I had it to over again, I'd maybe buy the 22" 5-in-1. A little more light, and translucency would be good. Maybe easier to refold. I do a lot of hiking photography, so the small size, light weight and protective cover are all good things.

              Comments about Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - Gold/Silver - 12":

              I wanted a small, easy to deal with reflector for night photography. I used this reflector outside for the first time a few days ago and it worked great for me and the price was right. I wanted it to be small and easy to hold in the wind as I held it in one hand to reflect light from a flashlight in my other hand. To be sure, it still would have been difficult in a strong wind but I managed it Ok in the light wind and it gave the reflected light I wanted.

              Great for manipulating light, on a small scale, when you need to. I always have this and the white translucent disc, same size, with me.
              They take up almost no room in which ever bag I may be carrying.

              I love my reflector! I gives me great lighting while I'm shooting and enhances my photographs tremendously! The only thing I would change about it is the size, which you can order a larger reflector, and I would tone down the gold. I would choose a reflector with a softer gold giving my subject more of a warm tone rather than sunny. Overall, it's a great buy at a great price!
