    Bowens BW3245 reviews

    42" Reflector - Silver/Gold is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reflector Disc I use the Bowens Reflector Disc in the field. I am a documentary photographer and working on the streets often requires additional light: portraits, shady sides of the street, and rather than a flash I prefer to bounce in light. 42 gets me enough light, yet it is not too large to hold in one hand while I photograph with the other It is strong and I do not have to worry about where I take it. Have been using them for many years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Reflects Does exactly what its supposed to do... reflect light. I'm an idoit so I have a hard time collapsing it back into its case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this! This is definitely a cheap and very useful addition to any home or professional filmmaker/photographer. The quality is amazing especially for the price. I use this to add more light to a person for interviews. You can add warm light with the gold side and cold light with the silver side. A great and not so great thing about it is the size when unfolded. It provides more light but it does take up a lot of room when opened. But it does compact very easily into a small portable disk. I would recommend this to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reflector Great build quality on this reflector. Look at youtube for ways to fold the reflector (vary easy). Would recommend for any photographer who needs more light without spending lots of cash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Size! Nicely made (sturdy spring steel inside the rim). Snaps out to a nice large size, but still folds (twists) into reasonable size for packing (about 14 in diameter when in pouch).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Simple, easy, packs small, does exactly what it's supposed to do. I love the packed size, considering how big it is unfolded. The steel ring can be a challenge to fold, but that does make it a bit sturdier. I photographed 2 children outdoors last week, and they stepped on it whenever I set it down, and it held up well. My only concern is durability when I try to clip it to a stand. I haven't tried it yet but I'm not convinced it will hold up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This reflector is a must ! I purchased the 42 inch Reflector and am very glad I did. I do a good deal of outdoor photography in areas that are overcast with shadows. The reflector allows me to cast much needed light onto the subject. This reflector easily supplies the amount of light that would normally be given by 2 studio lights. Being it is a larger disk size, I'm sure that the amount of light it reflects will cover the entire subject matter I am shooting. Having the variation of gold side allows for great skin tones. I have not had any concerns with glair overpowering the subject / seen on the finished frame nor have any models had any negative feedback about glair in their eyes from the light that is reflected onto them. It unfolds & folds very easy and it's case does have a loop that I attach to my camera bag for easy hands free carrying without a fuss.
