Photoflex LiteDisc Overview

  • 1Description

A versatile and portable light modifier, this LiteDisc Translucent Circular Diffuser from Photoflex has a 42" diameter, and can collapse down to 16" 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 (42") is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softens specular light like a cloudy sky I bought this product for outdoor portraiture, but use it for not only portraits of people, but also flowers where the direct lighting needs to be softened. It works easily like a cloud crossing between the sun and the subject diffusing (scattering the lighting) and creating a softer lighting source. It is well built, opens easily and quickly, and folds back down for easy storage. The only problem is that you need a stand or another person to hold the disk in place, as any wind will turn it into a sail and carry it away. Photoflex makes a stand on which I place a ballast to keep everything upright and standing on breezy days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Somthing for every portrait photographer If you ever do outdoor portraits at a time other than that perfect couple of minutes just before sunset, a diffuser is an exellent aid. It does very well at softening hard shadows and elimenating the squinty looks from your subject. And as an added bonus, it works extremely well for getting a horse to look alert for a photo. Although, discretion is advised in order to avoid having your subject buck off. As with all the PhotoFlex exuiptment that I've used, this seems to be a well made and durable product. The 42 inch size works well for waist up or sitting portraits of one person or two if they aren't too large. Trying to do more than that might be somthing of a feat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent translucency I used it in bright sun to create an even light source. It was beautiful light. I also used it in deep woods for a portrait shot to provide fill. It worked well in both scenarios.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from World Class Accessory This works well as a reflector, a backdrop and it's a terrific diffuser. I keep a variety of Litedisc sizes and colors and use them frequently, both inside and out. They allow me to better control the light without resorting to extra light sources. Along with a good tripod, a set of Litedisc with a stand or two provide tremendous bang-for-the-buck in light control. I often use them with the Manfrotto backlight stand when doing macro in the yard. Gives me more light and opens up the shadows - or - neutralizes direct sunlight when it appears too hot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Trick Works well and does the trick to defuse harsh sun light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Pricey but light and it packs very small. Appears to be very well made, and works great. Be careful the first time you open one - it unfolds almost instantly, it's rather startling.
