      Comments about Westcott 30" Silver/White Reflector:

      Very pure bright white, though a little shiny rather than matt. Very slightly textured silver. The black border eats up some of the reflector, so the reflective surface is 27 inches rather than 30. On a small reflector, this starts threatens to be signifigant

      Does what it's designed to do...reflect

      By Brian

      Comments about Westcott 30" Silver/White Reflector:

      I bought this reflector because another brand I bought had a "white" side that was more of a gray color. I understand that can come in handy when dealing with people that have very pale skin. The Westcott reflector's white side is not completely white either (are any?) but it is close and throws off noticeably more light than my other one. The silver side is great and is almost like having an actual light when bouncing sunlight. I also like that the fabric loop that's attached to the perimeter is big enough to fit your hand through and will keep it from blowing out your hands in high winds. I haven't had it that long so I can't attest too much to it's durability but it seems well built.

      Perfect size for solo use

          Comments about Westcott 30" Silver/White Reflector:

          I also have the 6' by 4' reflector, but in many instances that one is just too big and unwieldy even for assistants to handle outdoors. This 30" version is a great alternative for solo use, or for attaching to the Westcott Illuminator Arm. Folds down extremely small so it travels well. Don't freak once you get it out and can't fold it again. I use the "taco method". Bring diagonal corners together, and twist.

            I bought the 6 in one kit by westcott and it did not have a white reflector, I bought this one and fit it in the same bag with the others, true I have two silvers now, but its a good thing, I really like these for the size of reflection and portability.

            Great one hand reflector

              Comments about Westcott 30" Silver/White Reflector:

              In case 12 inches diameter. Open the reflector area minus the wide black binding tape is a rounded square 27 inches on a side. The silver side is brilliant silver and almost mirror like. Large loop of strap for a hand hold on the top edge. Mine even had an instructional DVD stuffed inside.

              Well made and just about right for holding in one hand while holding the camera in the other if you have to work alone. Good for blocking wind shooting flowers down on the ground where you can brace it against the ground and your shoulder. Silver side makes it nearly opaque so no good as a diffuser.

                Great size for 1/4 to 1/2 length beauty light setups and in smaller working spaces. Well made. Too small for full length shots, but I have larger reflectors for that.

                  Received this as a additional item in a kit so I was not expecting too much. It's very nice and would be worth paying full price.

                    No one would have convinced me that using a reflector would make that big a difference but it does. I am also glad to see the product came from my home town in Toledo. Funny to go all the way to NY to buy a product from the city I live in. I like the durability of the reflector. Some brands are flimsy and zippers break quickly. This is built to last.

                                Gives great results with minimal fuss. Easy to fold/unfold and works well with my Wescott lights, which it was included with. I wish it had a gold and black side to go along with the silver and white, but beggars can't be choosers.
