Comments about Profoto Giant Parabolic Reflector, Silver - 6' (180 cm):

I use this modifier for fashion and editorial work. Simply put, it is an amazing and versatile modifier for studio and location work. The quality is superb as is to be expected from Profoto. The material of the unit is thicker than expected and is over-built throughout with attention to stress points. The mod comes with a very well made case for transport. Combined with a wind-up stand this is perfectly usable in breezy locations. My go to lighting.

Comments about Profoto Giant Parabolic Reflector, Silver - 6' (180 cm):

Being (so far) the only fashion/commercial photographer this side of the Alps that owns the 6' Giant I must admit to being discretely in love with it. It performs extremely well in any situation, be it shooting for Playboy in the studio or doing outdoor fashion editorials. THIS IS THE LIGHT SHAPING TOOL YOU HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR ALL THIS TIME! Amazing wrap-around light if you put it 6' or even a bit further from the subject.
A word of advice though - we are talking about the 20-section Giant "Reflector", not the 10-section umbrella-style Giant (not called Reflector by Profoto), which is notably cheaper and gives a different shape of light.
