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.

    Useful for bouncing light outside or even reflecting daylight back onto your subject while indoors. Having variety permits creative work. Collapsible reflectors are convenient and easy to store. There are some creases/wrinkles on the case but does not affect light.

        My home has horrible lighting, windows are small and windows are almost all east and west. I have already used this multiple times to bounce light back to something I am trying to photograph. I am just a beginner but I love this thing already.

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

        Just got my 5-1 reflector, and I couldn't be happier. Has a range of colors of light you can bounce. The silk comes in extremely handy depending on your lighting conditions. The use you get out of this reflector for the price you pay is unmatched.

          Seems durable enough, especially for the price. Includes storage pouch. I'm currently using the diffusing disc, it's denser than some I've used (less opacity), and I prefer that.

            Once I figured out how it works, I think it will be perfect for my needs.

            There were no instructions but I was able to figure out how to attach the reflectors by looking at photos on B&H.

            There isn't much to say. It seems it will do the job. It seems sturdy.

              I purchased this product to help me with outside portfolio photography. I am also photographing a wedding in a few months for a family member. This will come in quite handy to help reflect light or use as a scrim to defuse the flash. I'm looking forward using this. It suits just about any situation I can think of. The size is perfect. Not too small, not too large. It also folds down to a small size, fits in a pouch, and is quite easy to handle. Definitely worth having.

                I've only experimented with this a little bit at home, but so far I'm impressed. It's a reasonably priced, very portable, and very versatile accessory. Be careful the first time you take it out of the pouch, though - it springs open with enthusiasm.

                    This is a very handy tool to keep with you at all times and don't exactly need an assistant to help you if you can direct the subject to do what is needed.

                                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.

                                  Very pleased with this item and after figuring out how to assemble the stand, I'm very pleased with this item.

                                    This is a great way to improve the lighting of a photograph without the use of a flash or extra continuous lighting!
