      Comments about Photoflex LiteDisc Circular Reflector, White Opaque/Silver, 32" (81.3cm):

      I think the Photoflex Litedisc's are the best photo investment for the money. I have most of the sizes - the smallest is useful for macro and largest for portraits. I also choose which size based primarily on subject size, space available and on wind.

      Filling shadows and balancing light can't be easier of cheaper.

      The White Opaque is good for a soft fill or quick background. Silver is the best for neutral fill. My most used combo.

      32" is a great place to start - big enough for headshots, but still easy to handle.

            Folds down perfectly to fit in camera backpack. Main thing this does so well is it pops out FLAT. A twisty, weak reflector is a useless reflector. This one is excellent.

                Comments about Photoflex LiteDisc Circular Reflector, White Opaque/Silver, 32" (81.3cm):

                I've been a fan of Photoflex LiteDiscs for years using the 42 inch White/Silver frequently when shooting studio portraits with strobes.

                Lately I've been shooting flowers by available light and found that the Litedisc provided a bit of fill quickly and easily. I've bought several disks so that I can choose the smallest size needed for the occasion.

                I also use the white side for a background at times.

                The disks are well made and collapse easily into durable, zippered storage bags.

                  this is my first reflector and i could not believe what i was missing. my photos looked better. i use this mostly during bright daylight. i tried using this at night to reflect the strobe instead of using direct flash and the results were fantastic. it's really nice that you can fold and has a storage bag included.

                    This is a great little reflector to throw into your light kit for fill light on those single-person interviews. I also have a gold/white reflector for adding a little color to a face. Very handy.

                      I am a aspiring photographer and I just used my reflector the other day and fell in love with it!
                      It is really lightweight.

                      This is a very nice reflector. Well made (even the carry case seems durable) and easy to fold. Compact when folded. This is a very useful tool for balanced fill light.

                        The first time I used this was actually as a backdrop for some Christmas light/paper snowflake bokeh shots. Tomorrow it will be used in its more traditional capacity for a wedding I'm shooting.

                        Reflector, backdrop, gobo, this thing does it all. No complaints.

                          This is the perfect upgrade from my trifold display board. Very sturdy and easy to fold up and put away in the included carrying case.
                          I did my research and, even though this one was a little more expensive then the comparable brands, its worth every penny extra. PhotoFlex is a very reliable brand and I would recommend them to anybody, especially my fellow colleagues.

                            I use this with the white/soft gold reflector and love it. Great for outdoors for fill, or in the studio for product shots.

                            Comments about Photoflex LiteDisc Circular Reflector, White Opaque/Silver, 32" (81.3cm):

                            Photoflex makes a great array of lite discs, but the 32" one seems to be one of the more useful ones in the field. It collapses and fits in many bags and light kits, yet it extends to get good bounce on 1 person-either a head shot or full body shot. The size is easy to hold, especially when the wind picks up. The white/silver is one of the most useful too, giving you good options for throwing light a longer distance (silver) or a shorter distance (white). Having one of these in your light kit aresnal is almost a must!
