      Comments about Westcott Illuminator Reflector Kit 6-in-1 - 52":

      I wanted a multi functional reflector to cover full bodies of small children and this diffidently fits the bill. Works perfect for the offsite studio set-up in random homes for reflecting natural light or in conjunction with a strobe or speed light.

        The size is great for getting light where you want it, but not so big as to be bulky or hard to handle. I like the fact that you use ONE FRAME for all 6 variations.

                  I use this for portraits and find it helpful. I had read reviews that this reflector was hard to fold up and get back in the case but I don't find that at all. Maybe they have improved it. Good value too!

                  Perfect size for 3/4 length (or tighter) portraits. Not too big, not too small. This is a quality product that is well-made.

                  The one issue I have with it is that when the outer silver/gold cover is put over the diffuser frame, the extra black edging fabric will no longer squeeze into a standard reflector arm bracket. I was forced to "rig" up my own supplemental clips to accommodate the larger edge due to the extra layer of fabric.

                  Be careful when directing this thing at your subject, because it can be very uncomfortable for their eyes (think: burnt retinas!).

                    I have used this product outdoors for portrait work. It's sturdy and folds up fairly compact. It's all the reflector you could need in one convenient package.

                      I use this product for weddings and location portraits. It is well built and having two frames provides a lot of flexibility lighting setups.

                        I thought it will be more complicated to fold, but i wasn't at all :)
                        I've used so far the gold, metallic, and 1 stop.

                          I love this kit - 2 panels, and then reversible covers for black, silver, gold, and sunset ..

                          They are large- you get full body coverage with these.

                          The metal bar can twist in these, but it's pretty easy to straighten back out .. a little patience and it'll flip back where it belongs.

                          Watch the available videos to know the right way to collapse them - otherwise .. they are a breeze to use.

                            Well, they are large, 52" to be exact - yea, okay.

                            Personally the alleged DVD is something of a joke, sure it's there- but the one in my kit didn't tell me anything about this kit ... it's a sales DVD, "please buy our other awesome products" -

                            The panels are color coded, and yes- you get 2 52" panels, and a zippered reversible cover-

                            It all comes inside a zipper case, like pretty much all of this type does.

                                Nice to pack one reflector and know you have such a variety of surfaces.
                                I was bringing several pop-open reflectors, not any more.

                                Pretty bulky, but I also kneel or sit on it!
