I LOVE this reflector. I've been using a 60" reflector that just seems to be too big and hard to angle. This reflector is awesome! Small enough to maneuver if I can't use my reflector stand. I love the gold/silver patterned side because it gives an even tone. This will definitely be part of my everyday use.

Handy, highly portable, and effective

Comments about Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - 22":

I primarily use this as a diffuser when trying to limit glare and contrast on plants. I was surprised how easy it is to unfold and refold, and it's surprisingly sturdy given how little it weighs - should last quite a while. I can't see any advantage to order the more costly brands.

This is just the perfect size reflector for my use. Great for macro shots in front of a window casting natural light on the subject...especially flowers.

Seems to be made from very high quality materials, and should last me a very long time.

    If you're involved in run-n-gun, guerilla style video production, then this piece of gear is essential. You don't always have time to set up grand lighting, and usually you don't have the money to as well! This reflector has several options and allows you to find the right/most compatible solution for your "on-the-go" video. It also works well on large sets when you need to make a minor tweak without wanting to redo the entire lighting scheme. Great tool to have!

      Comments about Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - 22":

      I bought this to have an inexpensive, small, multipurpose reflector that I could stuff in my shoulder bag. I have a larger reflector that even folded down is a bit large to carry. This one fit the bill perfectly. I haven't used it extensively yet, so I can't comment on long term durability.

      For the times I've used it it's done it's job. Easy to fold down. Easy to turn the cover inside out for the different reflective surfaces.

            Love the size of the reflector and how compact it is. You would never know there are 5 options for reflection types when you see it folded up. Fits in my camera bag nicely which is my favorite part.

            It's light it's compact it's basically a pocket reflector. Not really but I love it because I can slide it in and out of my camera bag without a problem.

              The light reflectors are perfect for traveling and easy storage as they don't take up a lot of space when folded. The entire package provides the flexibility I need for filling in shadows during video shoots and product photo shoots. I couldn't be happier with this product, especially for the price!

              This 5-in-1 collapsible set is a good size for great portability. I use it for small studio setups and is great for small spaces.

                  I use this to soften the light and reduce shadows.
                  All the options with color and flexibility.
                  The zipper is hard to close the last few inches.

                  I never owned a full set of reflectors but I gotta say, this was great!
                  Super easy, professional, and great if you're alone and only have one hand.
                  Would recommend for close up portraits.
                  Really highlights in areas that are usually dark and easy to change the cover.

                    This is overall a great reflector. Having so many options in such a compact package is nice. My only down side is that the reflector can be a bit of a challenge to fold up. The product does come with folding instructions that explain it well but the wire rim isn't always the most cooperative.

                      Bought this as it fits perfectly in my LowPro Slingshot 202AW. The multiple colors are helpful for different situations. Zippers may not last too long on reversible covers (slight damage after 2 uses), but overall quality feels good.

                            This product's versatility comes from the 5 different color shades. It compacts to less than half its size for portability. Cost was reasonable for a non-pro.

                            And one of the great things about B&H is they accept Pay-Pal.
