Westcott 1031 overview

  • 1Description

The 4 in 1 Kit combines two 42" Illuminator reflectors in one bag, a silver/sunlight panel and a diffuser fabric that can be used to soften the light or used as a white reflective surface.

Great portability is the advantage of two panels in one kit. It provides the ability to provide different light control when needed.

The panels can be used separately to provide reflection or diffusion, but they can also be used in tandem. The diffusive panel can be used to soften shadows and the reflective panel can be used to bounce in reflected, controlled light.

As with all of the other Illuminator reflectors, they collapse to approximately 1/3 their opened size and slip into a zippered circular bag.

    Illuminator Reflector 4-in-1 - 42" is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I own a lot of reflectors and this set is my favorite. I've always loved the sunlite reflectors with the silver and gold since it gives a tiny bit of warmth that looks very natural and isn't over powering. Very flattering. Westcott's sunlite is the best though. LOVE that. I also like having two reflectors instead of having to zip out covers. The white is enough to reflect if needed to fill in areas of my subject, but also works amazing for diffusing light (how I usually use the white in this kit) Now I can bring one kit, diffuse and reflect at the same time. Super sturdy, perfect size, great quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two-for-one value Nice quality. I like that you get a diffuser AND a separate two-sided reflector instead of just a cover. Besides not having to deal with zippers, you have two light modifiers that can be used together, making this a good two-for-one value; I can't see paying more for this type of gear and would be leery about paying less. The straight edges make it easier to prop. Note that the 42 measures diagonally corner to corner, not side to side (37). Edging adds 2.5 to overall diamentions Sunlight reflector fills subject's face with a nice natural glow. Trade-off of the larger size for better coverage means it is difficult to hold steady in a strong breeze; but that's not a complaint of the product itself, just something anyone debating which size to get to consider. Yes, folding takes some practice, although the basic technique is the same as for a round reflector. One of the corners can invert if you aren't careful -- but it pops back into place easily enough.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4-in-2-in-1 My fault on not reading the not-so-fine-print on this one. I was wrongly expecting this to be one diffuser with a zip off silver/sunlight panel, but it is actually two reflectors in one bag. (Exactly like the description says. Stupid me.)It is actually very convenient having two panels versus having a zip-off cover. I frequently work on small architectural shoots, and having a diffuser over a window or in front of a light source is invaluable. The silver reflector is considerably more efficient a light reflector than the sunlight. I would recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good design I really like that the Westcott 4-in-1 has two separate frames. One for the sunlight/silver reflectors and one for the white reflector and diffuser. There's no zipping involved! I have seen many 5-in-1 products that no longer function because the zipper on the zip-on reflectors has broken. Also, with a 5-in-1, you can't use your reflector and diffuser at the same time! This product just makes sense! I also like the rectangular design. You can prop it up more easily if you aren't fortunate enough to have an assistant at your side!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Change I haven't had a chance to fully utilize them yet, but the few times I have they are much better than my handmade foamboard with aluminum foil. These give a much more even light and I really like the gold (sunlight) tone for outdoor shootings. I was hoping the white would be a bit more reflective but it still works good as a reflector. I have not tried it as a diffuser yet. The other plus is the size. I have kids ranging from 9 to 2 and these are the perfect size for studio and outdoor portraits.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I almost bought the 36 size, but I am glad I went with the 42. It only took about 3 tries to figure out how to fold it up. My assistant/wife folds it up quicker than I can. I worry about the diffuser material ripping if it gets caught on something, but that would be my fault anyway. I have used it with bouncing off an on camera flash to produce a nice lighting effect. Still need some practice though!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I had an older Westcott white/silver that I used for over 10 years. Unfortunately, I left it behind at a wedding shoot (outdoors - it was gone by the time I remembered and went back to pick it up). I didn't hesitate to replace it with another Westcott reflector. I love the added versatility I get with the diffuser and silver/sunlight combo. I highly recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE! I love this kit and have stellar photos as a result of using natural light. I previously used the older Wescott kit just like this one as an assistant to another photographer for years. While I did not enjoy standing in the sun, I know how great having control of the sun can make for breathtaking photos. Kiss your blah, shadowy, mundane pictures goodbye!
