The Impact Reflector Panel is a light shaping tool consisting of 4 aluminum rods and a geared bracket that hold its 35 x 70" (90 x 179 cm) fabric taut without a frame. Two reversible reflective fabrics are included; black/white and gold/silver. The silver material is the most specular of the surfaces - ideal for long throw applications and bright enough to mimic an additional light source. Gold adds a warm hue to the subject and is especially valuable in cool-toned open shade or to create sunset effects. White is the softest most neutral surface is most often used to gently fill in shadows and adjust lighting ratios.

The tilting bracket accepts stands with a 5/8" top stud and rotates 360 degrees so that you can turn the panel horizontally, vertically or any angle in between. A carry bag is included to store and transport the panel.

      I haven't used it yet but it's obvious it will do what I want -- lighten shadows. However, I have set it up and taken it down. It's quick and easy and if is small and light when packed up. That's a bit plus. It seems to be well constructed and shouldn't fail with a bit of reasonable care.

      The rods are more than a meter long so you can't tuck it in a camera bag :). That's all that stops it from being r e a l l y compact.

      I bought this to use for shooting my own videos, and I don't have a crew, so it helps to have a hands-free setup.

      The reflector is easy to set up but a bit sloppy because you essentially have to lay it flat on the ground to put the rods in - which can present a problem if you're on location and the ground is dirty, wet, etc. I did a shoot in the grass and the white reflector got grass stains on the first use.

      In hindsight I think it would also help for this to have an outer frame, to make it more rigid, so one could use it as a standalone reflector. On one particular shoot I had a grip holding the thing and it was just flopping around.

      All in all, it does what a reflector is supposed to do. Just get a sandbag or two to hold this thing down as it becomes an instant sail the minute a breeze blows.

        Slight learning curve in assembling reflector, but after that panel was very easy to use and move around. So far only used for indoor studio portraits, but certainly could be used outdoors. Excellent value for price. Highly recommended.

          I purchased this reflector in trying to simulate available light and not have that direct feel from a softbox. it worked great.

              only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it's fairly susceptible to air movement. I had it close to an overhead vent and the middle of the screen has no support so it rippled pretty easily, which kept changing my reflected light. otherwise, no issues.

              This is a good reflector whether you want to you use outdoors for reflection of the sun or indoors as a fill light. It is a little flimsy so if using outdoors I would suggest having an assistant use it but if indoors a light stand should be fine. One thing to note is that even though this is a kit and the photos show a light stand, a light stand is not included with the set.

                This is a pretty slick little gadget. It's easy to set up once you've done it once or twice. The construction is good and you can bounce a fair amount of light off it. Love the fact that it's so light as well. Wish they included a translucent panel as well but other than that it's a great product.

                          Very good flexible design, quality material.
                          Its size is Huge !
                          It has Black, White, Gold and Silver surfaces, so you don't need anything else.

                            I haven't used it yet but it's obvious it will do what I want -- lighten shadows. However, I have set it up and taken it down. It's quick and easy and if is small and light when packed up. That's a bit plus. It seems to be well constructed and shouldn't fail with a bit of reasonable care.

                            The rods are more than a meter long so you can't tuck it in a camera bag :). That's all that stops it from being r e a l l y compact.

                              This reflector panel does what it advertises. Perfect for bouncing and catching light. The white/black/silver/gold panels included provide everything necessary for most studio work. Good product at a fair price. Also, they are travel friendly.
