  • Reversible

This 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 42" disc is suitable for a 3/4 length portrait and a medium-size still-life setup. 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.

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.

      Good size for eng

      We have these in all our sets of gear for quick
      standups. They pick up some light even if it's cloudy and easily fold back to their not-to-big shape.

                        A little hard to figure out the folding at first, but once you get it, you get it. Very useful, perfect size!

                        I like the ease at which it opens up and especially when I put it away. It makes an amazing difference in lighting. This was my first time using this kind of product.

                          I do a lot of shoots outside and love it! It's a product I didn't know how much I needed it until I bought it. Perfect size for portrait or full body.

                            I've used for on location portrait sessions. It's inexpensive considering the size...annoying to fold when you first try it, but looked up a tutorial to find a foolproof way, and now it's super easy. If you are in the market for a reflector definitely recommend.

                                I've only owned this product a week and I've used many times already! It's a great size and works exactly how it's suppose to.
                                I' mean it's a reflector...what more is there to say...it reflect light!
                                My pictures are coming out great!
                                Perfect size for full body shots, and great price!
                                Kind of confusing to fold up, but you'll get the hang of it!

                                  Very large reflector and made from quality materials. Excellent buy!

                                      How I ever took outdoor pictures without these, I shall never know.

                                      I photograph children mostly, and being light on gear is the only way to go. These reflectors keep me and my assistant ready for each candid moment.

                                      You just have to be aware of how strong the sun can reflect off these especially toward mid day, because they can be blinding to your subjects.

                                      These are very big and very bright, by which I mean they can even be used as key lights indoors reflecting 500 watt lamps (for video, in my case). I know that's not their primary use, but it works in a pinch. Do note that 42'' is pretty big for handheld purposes, but it's certainly doable. Just don't let the wind blow you away! These do their job great, and the price is hard to beat.

                                          Solid portable reflector with gold & silver fits most needs.
                                          Now I just need a cheap PA to hold it!
