Photoflex LitePanel Reviews

Litepanel Tradition Continues

Ive used these since the 1980s and Im glad someone continues to make them. The original Lightform from Dean Collins made these devices popular. While not as sturdy as the original or even your own home made from schedule 40 PVC, these are very light and very portable. Glad they have feet (which work very well without using the metal screws), and theyre equally light and portable.

Good but not great

I have purchased the aluminum 39x72 panel frame for use in the studio, do wish I had purchased it again instead of saving money. This panel is very easy to use, easy set up, everything it promises to be, which is very good and says a lot for its quality construction. I have noticed a slight bowing to it becuase of the pvc material. It will probably hold up well, and it still works great. I would recommend the better quality to a friend but this one is adequate.

LOVE!

I use this constantly for indoor sessions (it'd be great outdoors, but with it's size, it's going to soar away). It's easy to put together, rather compact for it's size (even with the legs, it takes up less room than a reflector and stand I've used before.

I support the fact that when shooting portraits, and generally, when shooting has to be one source of light: the sun, a flash, easy a lamp. And, if you stick to this concept, the light panel - an indispensable thing! Regardless of whether you are shooting in the studio or en plein air, this device gives you the opportunity to get an almost perfect light and shadow allocation. The only thing that will not allow you to use it - a strong wind during shooting on the street. Oh, yes! One must - the shortcomings of ... I bought only the frame, but the proposed package. Here are just a black canvas will zaazat separately. The kit contains two white reflector, and black canvas - no. And so it is often necessary. But it's my fault, when ordering .)))) Still looking to buy.

Lightweight and easy to setup, this Panel frame helps deliver excellent lighting control in studio and on location. I use the Litepanel frame along with the White translucent fabric panel to add extra control and softness to my photographs.Excellent if you are using a gridded or directional light source, as the light fall-off is smooth and even.The only con is the fabric had some heavy folds...I had to steam them out to get the fabric to stay nice and smooth.

Too flimsy

I was pleased when I first got these, I order two of them. I was replacing two that were more than 15 years old. I'm glad I waited to review these. Two of the corners are already cracked, with very little use. The fabrics are also way too tight. If you use them in a studio, they may be a good deal, but it you shoot location, spend more and get the aluminum frames. They cost twice as much, but don't break. If you do shoot location, don't get these. Period.

Asked by: kenas ..
Unfortunately, 77 x 77 inches is the largest size which Photoflex makes in the ChromaKey Fabric. In terms of a 10 x 10 ft Chroma Key background, you can use the following product from Won as shown in the link: <a href= http://bhpho.to/1MPkpQE. target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1MPkpQE.</a> To support that background, please see the link to a compatible support: <a href= http://bhpho.to/1bTq2qN target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1bTq2qN</a>
