Impact R2542-T overview

  • 1Description

This two-handle 42" Translucent Collapsible Circular Reflector from Impact adds a polished-looking quality of light to your photos or videos. The reflector (actually more of a diffuser) has handy convenience features that make it easy to use; delivering impressive results while saving space by folding down to approximately one third of its open size. Impact's smart design provides ergonomic handgrips that allow you to hold the disc in a flat or U-shaped position, or in any way that gets the job done. Each of the grips has additional 3/8"-16 threaded sockets for attachment to accessories or grip equipment.

While not reflecting as much as the solid white surface the Translucent disc does exhibit soft neutral reflection. Its primary purpose, however is as a diffuser that's made to tame contrast by for example, being held over a subject's head in the harsh noon-day sun. The disc can also be used in situations where you'd use a softbox. Using a disc holder place your flash or constant light behind the suspended disc for soft, flattering light with open shadows.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Usable, but inconvenient I purchased this 5-in-1 circular reflector kit, thinking it would come with at least 4 separate covers. However, this only came with 2 covers, with each side of each cover having a different color. For example, switching between gold and black would require one to flip the cover inside out. I also bought this on sale, when there was no method of distinguishing this product from the reflector discs (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/358608-REG/Impact_R1142_5_in_1_Reflector_Disc.html) except that it has no handles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, that's how you improve a reflector. How do you improve a simple 5 in 1 collapsible reflector? You put mounting points on it! Two 3/8 sockets, one in each handle, allow for that. Better have a sandbag if you're going to set it up outside on a windy day though... at 42 this thing is like a sail, but that much surface area reflects a lot of light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Well made and exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase it especially if you can get it on sale. The only issue I had with it out of the box is that one of the zippers is defective. Everything zips up great with the gold surface facing outwards, however when I turn it inside out to use the silver surface one of the zippers gets caught on a seem and will not zip shut the last couple of inches. Regardless, I use it primarily as a diffuser and it works great out in the field and in the studio.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great reflector! Awesome, multi-faceted reflector. It's pretty heavy-duty, unlike a lot of similar products in this price-range. The grips make for easy handling and having all the different options of reflective surfaces has proven its worth several times over.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Exactly Like its Suppose To Reflectors are a nice color and are all clean. Its a perfect size for shooting on the go and is easy to store. It even has mounting screws on the handles so you can set it up on a tripod if your short on hands or if your using it in a studio.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is the greatest reflector I've used. I actually feel it's improved my imagery. I love the all in one feature. The handles are great and sturdy as well. I have already recommended this item to a few friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG A MUST BUY If you're going to shoot on location during the day THIS IS A MUST! I love the fact that it has handles to help hold it!
