I was shooting a student film in natural light and needed silver and white reflectors for to provide some fill. As we had no budget I was looking for something portable, versatile and under $50. This certainly filled the bill. I also used it on a different shoot as diffusion for a 650 fresnel.

My only concern is it's durability. I have used other collapsible reflectors before and this one seems to be more flimsy with a plastic frame feel. The zipper on the cover feels fragile.

That said, if you're short on budget, this reflector will work nicely.

              This is an ideal kit for improving studio lighting. It's fairly easy to use (folding it back up was easier than I anticipated) and very convenient. The one downside was I ordered this hoping to be able to use the diffuser and one of the reflectors at the same time but didn't realize that the diffuser acts as the frame that you put the reflectors over. Still it works well for bouncing light on to subjects or softening harsh lights.

              Works as expected. I cannot speak to it's durability, because I tend to lose them before I can break it.

                  Product works as well as you think it would. The 5 in one feature is great and it collapses so it travels well. My only complaint would be that it is tricky to fold with the cover on it, but it is doable. I would definitely recommend it.

                    Great and compact but always ready to be used. Alittle challenging to fold back till you get used to it. If you need a reflector these are the ones to use.

                    This reflector will do the job, but I've worked with sturdier reflectors in the past. If you plan on using it once in a while I think this will suffice.

                          I have mostly used this product for shooting films on my DSLR. I have studio lights and we use natural light often and this reflector has helped add filler for all situations. We have filled shots that simply have too large a dynamic range and we block the light with it when the sun is too bright. One problem that I have faced in the past is having it catch wind like a kite when shooting outside. I have found that the 32in reflector is much less likely to blow away or pull you than the 42in. It is also still big enough to reflect what we need when we need it. Overall, I would say that the price is low, the value is high and it is definitely something you will be thankful to have sitting around when you are working on projects.

                          The scrim works well for portraits in bright sunlight. The reflector covers are easy to use and worked well for portraits as well.

                                Very compact; helpful for decreasing shadow on one side of someone's face or generally increasing light a bit.

                                  Comments about Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - 32":

                                  The base reflector comes with one reversible sleeve, providing the remaining 4 reflecting tones. This works well as the base fits snuggly in the sleeve.

                                  My daughter is an avid amateur photographer and has been needing a reflector (we call it a bounce card) - this does the job perfectly. She's only had it a week so I can't comment on durability, but it seems well made and looks like it will hold up for a good long time.
