Creative Light 38" Translucent Reflector

B&H # CRR38T Mfr # 100845
No Longer Available

Reflectors are a quick and easy way to open up shadows, change contrast, or direct the light--and collapsible reflectors are even more convenient, folding down to a fraction of their size for storage and transport. The Creative Light 38" Translucent Reflector has a spring-loaded design that pops open to its full 38" (95 cm) diameter, ready to go--the neutral semi-sheer fabric reduces light intensity by 1 f-stop, while softening and spreading the light as well.

      Comments about Creative Light 38" Translucent Reflector:

      I specialize in natural history macro photography and have found that direct sunlight pretty much always ruins an otherwise good picture. I aim to photograph before sunrise, after sunset, in shaded areas, or on cloudy days, but of course sometimes the perfect subject presents itself in an open area at 2PM in July. The best solution in that case is to diffuse the sunlight. For years, I used plain white fabric attached to cardboard tubes on either end. The effect was fine and it rolled up well enough, but it required two hands to hold and eventually the cardboard rolls started falling apart. It also looked pretty cheesy. This is a much more elegant, durable, and professional-looking solution (although two hands will be required depending on what angle you're trying to hold it at, especially on a windy day). It doesn't take too much practice to get it to fold back into its (included) carrying case. My only critique is that I wish the fabric were just a bit thicker to diffuse direct sunlight a little more.

      Comments about Creative Light 38" Translucent Reflector:

      It's a reflector so really there isn't much to say, other than it seems to be pretty good quality and should last. Price was excellent, I got it on sale. Helpful that it is translucent so that you can shoot strobes through it but is white enough to also do it's job as a reflector.

        I bought a pair thinking at that price I could not loose. I inspected both and found the quality to be very good. I have several reflectors of different sizes and manufactures. I use them so much after a couple years they are really soiled. For the price, I would not hesitate to toss these in the trash, and buy new ones! I will keep one or two of these on hand.

          Comments about Creative Light 38" Translucent Reflector:

          I am a natural light photographer and this reflector is great for removing shadows without having to use flash. It's lightweight, springs easily open and is easy enough to close.

          It's a great product for the price.

              Can't wait to use it. Seems durable, but I am afraid to fold it down. I must practise putting it down for replacement back into it's storage pouch.

                I use the product as a diffusion panel for outside shots when the lighting is harsh. It's a great product and folds up easy and is very lightweight.
