Photoflex LiteDisc overview

  • 1Description

A versatile and portable light modifier, this LiteDisc Translucent Circular Diffuser from Photoflex has a 12" diameter, and can collapse down to 5.25" in diameter. The neutral white translucent fabric subtly reduces contrast and subdues light intensity, making it ideally suited for portraiture and other instances where a soft light source is required. Also, the durable, double-riveted steel spring frame ensures a consistent shape over time and maintains a flat profile when the reflector is expanded. A dedicated carry bag is also included for storage and travel.

    Photoflex LiteDisc reviews

    LiteDisc Translucent Collapsible Circular Diffuser (12") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diffuser/Reflector Use it with Wimberely Plamp to hold it over or near subject. Some have mentioned its loud noise when it pops open; yes, it does make a surprisingly loud noise, but knowing that, one can just restrain it a bit as it opens. It's a non-issue in my book. Like the fact it twists down to such a small size and has its own storage pouch that I hang on the outside of my photo pack so its always handy. Only issue I've discovered with it is that it droops a bit in the Plamp - its circumference cant be super stiff and also flexible enough to twist down in size. Easily dealt with however with a little quick adjustment to its position.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality but LOUD when opening This is a very well made product, very robust -- but so much so that when it opens it's with a very loud POP ! That's not a problem for wildflower shooting in mid-day sun, but could very well be problematic with more mobile wildlife.... I had expected the frame would be thinner, flimsy, more like the expandable auto shades, but it's probably 1/2' thick and strong, which opens it with such force that results in the resounding POP of the fabric when it opens fully. Otherwise, I would rate it 5 stars. Easy to fold up and fits nicely in the carrying case after being used, unlike some products that NEVER fit back into their case once they've left the factory. This review applies to both the 12 and 22 product. Looking forward to using these in the hot noonday sun, should we ever see that again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Careful when you open it I bought both the 12 and 22 for shooting wildflowers in harsh light conditions. Looks like a great product and well made but the pop noise it makes when opening is loud enough to startle me -- and any nearby animals. I expected it to be more like the collapsable auto window shades with a thin frame (and quieter!) but it's very robust. The loud noise made when opening is the only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product High quality diffuser which folds up into a little bag which is also well made. Perfect for carrying into the field for micro work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for macro work I use this to diffuse the sun on bright sunny days and some cloudy days. It is perfect for small subjects like flowers and plants. It folds up nicely and can be inserted into the thing it came in but also a tight pocket or camera bag. The only funny thing is it pops out really fast but you get used to that after the 2nd time. I recommend this for any macro or tiny landscape photographer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Product Convenient size; useful little tool for light through or bounced light; found useful mainly for macro photography at this size. Solid construction; good quality professional product; Compact size; easy to carry arround; comes with a nice light weight and zippered carry pouch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and Useful No complaints about these 12" diffusers. I got 3 to soften up small interview lights and they work great. Cuts harsh light and shadows as expected. The picture shows a gray and white square, but just to be clear these are only white.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and portable I've owned larger sizes that have lasted for years with regular use. I wanted something small to carry at all times and this fit the bill. I mostly use it to diffuse sunlight when photographing flowers/gardens.
