  • 1Description

The 42" 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc from Raya is a versatile light modification tool than can find uses in the studio and on location. This disc provides white, silver, gold, and black surfaces as well as a one stop translucent diffusion panel. The 42" size is designed for 3/4 length portraits and medium-sized still life setups. The tool allows you to quickly and easily make adjustments to your lighting in order to get the look you want. Also, the disc is able to fold down to 1/3 its size and be stored inside the included carrying bag.

White provides a neutral soft reflection useful for fill light
Silver offers a neutral color balance similar to the white but with a higher contrast, increasing specular highlights
Gold reflects a warmer light onto a subject, useful to enhancing skin tones or balancing a cool scene
Black will block unwanted reflections and eliminate spill
The translucent diffuser lessens light power by 1 stop and will help create a broader, softer light source that will wrap around your subject

    Raya CR-51-42 Reviews

    5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc (42") is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 228.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A definite MUST for portraits! I recently just got into photography and am still learning a lot as i go! The Raya 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector was recommended to me by a relative as a must have for shooting portraits. After trying to shoot portraits without one and then switching to using the reflector, it made a world of a difference. I like to vary my tones in portraits and tend to do a lot of warm tones and diffused lighting. I love that the reflectors are so compact, extremely portable and very easy to use. They are built very well and spring into place without a hassles. i am definitely going to get a stand to be able to mount the reflectors instead of having to use my wife -)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have Photo/Video Accessory I can't imagine going out on a shoot, whether stills or video, without a collapsible reflector. The Raya 5-in-1 is so well-priced that it's inexcusable not to have one on hand. Construction is beefy, and the various fabrics look durable. Ease of use revolves around the zippers which makes it possible to change out the surfaces (and to enclose the disc in its carrying bag). I did notice that I had to slow down slightly to get the zipper to close properly, but then this is a necessary requirement so that the surfaces are taut once a surface is changed. If you rush the fabric will get caught in the zipper, so you will need to come up with a strategy that includes slowing down.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Size and Quality for a low price. The Disc is actually larger than I expected which is a plus. The large size is great for lighting up a full subject or angling it for just a certain area. Easy to switch out disc colors by sliding onto frame and zipping up. Only drawback and this may just be something I haven't figured out yet is I wanted to have the silver on one side and gold on the other instead of silver on one side and black on the other. I can always quickly unzip though and just turn it inside out to get the color I want. The frame is sturdy and folds up nicely into a small disc you can carry in a little bag. The gold really warms up your subject. Love it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Whoops The quality on this is as expected. I thought I was getting one that I could have silver on one side and white on the other, but it doesn't do that. You have to flip the cover inside out to go between those two surfaces. White and Silver are typically the most used options so it doesn't make sense to have to flip it. It works and I will keep it, but I am kicking myself a bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This reflector is super easy to open & collapse. It's construction is solid & not cheap. Love that is comes with 5 color options. My first use out was to reflect light from the sunset at the beach for portraits. I didn't have a helper with me, but the gold was blinding to the eyes for my portraits, so I switch over to white in a pinch. My choice would have swtiched over to the silver, but I didn't have time to unzip & rezip to reveal the silver. Tip: know in advace what color you need to use if you don't have a helper with you. But gold is an awesome reflector that left vibrant warm color on the faces!!!! Awesome product!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More solid than I expected I wasn't expecting something that cost so little to impress me so much. The rigidity of the frame was quite impressive - solid as others twice its price. The sheen and stitching of the reflective surfaces is really quite professional. No loose strings or shadowy wrinkles (so far). And the diffusion material doesn't scratch or dent easily, as I found out on accident when it slipped off its holder and fell onto an unused C-stand. Heck, even the case is well made, if still budget-minded. It's hard to go wrong with this unless you're a high-end professional... but even then, you should probably be using something bigger than 42 as your modified light source. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a perfect photo investment I purchased this reflector 2 months ago and have used it already on a few projects, indoors and on location. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the reflector and found the quality to be very good. For those who haven't worked with reflectors this one will take some breaking in as it involves a bit more arm power to close it. I rather have it to be more sturdy than flimsy. The reflector material is very good with no flaking or deterioration. I'm certain with more use that there will be signs of wear over time. But taking care of any photo grip equipment will prolong it's use. I can't really find anything NOT to like about this. The price is good for what you're getting. I would highly recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to beat for the price. I use this item for both photo and video production and it does the job. For the price it does the job REALLY well. The construction of the reflector is perhaps a tad less robust than say an Impact brand collapsible reflector, but not by much. I purchased the Raya largely due to the price so that I could have an extra reflector just in case I needed it. The diffusion functionality of this item is, for me, the best aspect to this item. In a pinch you can find something to bounce light, but the ability to diffuse light sometimes isn't as easily solved, especially at a 42 diameter. If you're a beginner this is a perfect investment. If you're a pro, it's a cheap way to have an backup or extra light modifier. Either way it's hard to beat for the price.
