Impact R2522-51 overview

  • 1Description

This two-handle 22" 5-1 Circular Collapsible Reflector with Handles from Impact adds a polished-looking quality of light to your photos or videos. The reflector is built around a translucent disc which doesn't reflect as much as the solid white surface, but does exhibit soft neutral reflection. Its primary purpose, however, is as a diffuser that will tame contrast by 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 or one of the 3/8" sockets, place your flash or constant light behind the suspended disc for soft, flattering light with open shadows.

The 5-in-1 reflector has handy convenience features that make it easy to use and deliver 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. The 5-in-1 Reflector comes with a carry/storage case.

The surfaces are available on two removable, reversible sleeves that slip over the disc. Silver offers very high reflective qualities that render a snappy high-contrast look with a cool color bias. Just the opposite, the Gold surface reflects a very warm quality; similar to late afternoon or sunset light. The Black fabric subtracts light from the subject, and can be used to block out unwanted light or to greatly reduce reflections on shiny or reflective surfaces. Finally, the flat White surface provides neutral reflectance with a soft quality of light.

    Impact R2522-51 reviews

    5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector with Handles (22") is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't be the price They do just what a reflector or diffuser would do. However, because of the two handles it is top heavy. This problem is easily solved by removing one of the handles. The other nice feature of this is that it can be screwed onto a light stand. However, they used a screw fitting that is not standard for most light stands. Of the 10 or so light stands I own from various companies, I can only screw it onto one of them. Not even Impact light stands can be used. So buy the necessary screw adapter if you want to screw this onto your light stands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, but useful Easy to hold in one hand with your camera in the other, but 22 inches is less than two feet across. It's well made but requires more careful aiming than a larger reflector. I use it for clamshell lighting, where I'm up close and personal and it's great for filling in the shadows, it's highly reflective and the gold side can warm up the portrait. Folded in its bag it about the size of a dinner plate. Easy to carry in your gear bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silver and Gold are good in small packages. This collapsible reflector is very convenient for adding a little reflected light into your images. The new versions with built in handles are very useful as well as the built in tripod socket. I use it more or less for fill light in macro images of flowers, however the larger ones are good for doing portraits.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handles + tripod thread is questionable Handles are a little too heavy for the reflector to hold up, so it tends to flop around if you use the tripod thread to screw it into a light stand with the reflector above the stand. Best to hang it from the handle side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent reflector. This reflector is easily handled with one hand while shooting with the other. A bonus is that the handles have 1/4-20 threaded holes for mounting on standard light stands or a tripod. Very easy to use when working alone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good size No assistant needed. Difficult to fold due to rigid frame, not a big deal
