    Compact Telescopic Light Disc Holder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for what I need The extended arm is just barely long enough for a 36 diffuser (to be held at both ends via both clips instead of letting it hang). But that was only because of the position I wanted it in (horizontal along the pole, not vertical). If vertical, then it's fine. If you go bigger (heavier) than a 36 diffuser, you'll need the photoflex heavy duty stand (I got the medium stand for it). If you leave it on the medium stand, the pole bends as it's too heavy (though won't break). I like it. It does what I need, either in the studio or on-location. Yes, I wish the tightening arm didn't need to really be tightened as harshly (I feel I'll break it if I go too far), but it's stury. Aside from these small details, I like it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a fan. Quite heavy and not terribly convenient. This thing is basically an extendable aluminum tube, attached to a low-grade umbrella bracket (without an umbrella hole) with a couple of binder clips pipe-clamped on. If you use it at full extension, it requires a counterweight on the back end. Also, the multitude of knobs that stick out from the bar actually get in the way of mounting the reflector in some positions, because the knobs stick further out than the clips! Really poor design and not worth the money in my opinion. Returned.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good while it lasted Well, I purchased this to hold up 42 reflectors and the occasional speed light. It worked great for about 12 shoots. I normally had assistants holding the reflectors however when I was short handed this came to my rescue. That is until i was packing for the 13th shoot (unlucky 13 right) I was doing a pre shoot equipment check and noticed the hinge would not tighten. I took the unit apart hoping it was a minor failure to find out the screw that kept the unit tight want stripped beyond repair and so was the threaded tube in the center. So now I still continue the use this unit with a super clamp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent build and great price Very well built and priced well. It can be used as a reflector holder, or a flash shoe can be mounted as well. Very useful in or out of the studio.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as big as I thought, but works fine Although it extends to 50, a 42 reflector just barely fits; but it does fit. Make sure you have a sturdy stand if you are using a large reflector (or you can weigh down the feet). This is better quality that the one I used before. It lasted two years but broke at a bad time. B&H saved the day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better light panel holders We're always looking for the perfect holder for our panels, both commercial and homemade, and this one comes close. We were visiting another production house and saw these in use. We were told they came from, where else, B&H, and ordered the next day. Good stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I have been using the light disc holder in my studio. It works as advertise. It is well built, and it can hold a multitude of disc sizes. It will need a counter balance for the large discs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Purchase It's hard to explain the usefulness of this product or compare it to others (that I have never used) but I will make an attempt. I bought my first unit about 5 years ago when I was just starting out since I could not afford an assistant. It have been at nearly EVERY shoot with me since then. Its primary function is to hold reflectors as a fill light source, a negative fill (black flag) source or a backdrop. It could easily be used as a key light source (reflecting the sun) but as a strobist, I have not used it as such yet, but in a pinch, it would suffice.It has been thrown around and mistreated but it held up to my abuse. It recently broke after about 5 years of use but it was my forgetfulness that brought about the breakage (as it fell from the roof of my car). But it's still usable! Now I have two units and I am eager to be able to find myself in a situation where I can utilize both as a fill and backdrop simultaneously for an on-location head shot session.@I have not used other products but if your budget can afford one and you are looking into achieving complex lighting scenarios and cannot afford an assistant, then but this accessory.
