I recently just got into photography and am still learning a lot as i go! The Raya 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector was recommended to me by a relative as a must have for shooting portraits. After trying to shoot portraits without one and then switching to using the reflector, it made a world of a difference. I like to vary my tones in portraits and tend to do a lot of warm tones and diffused lighting.

I love that the reflectors are so compact, extremely portable and very easy to use. They are built very well and spring into place without a hassles. i am definitely going to get a stand to be able to mount the reflectors instead of having to use my wife -)

The quality on this is as expected. I thought I was getting one that I could have silver on one side and white on the other, but it doesn't do that. You have to flip the cover inside out to go between those two surfaces. White and Silver are typically the most used options so it doesn't make sense to have to flip it. It works and I will keep it, but I am kicking myself a bit.

Comments about Raya 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc (42"):

I researched reflectors for the right size and brand for a while and pulled the trigger on this one. The 5-in-1 is the way to go. True, you may not use the gold and black that much- but it's there when you need it. I have found it to do a great job at directing light where I need it. I mostly shoot in natural light but I do occasionally shoot with a speed light through and umbrella. This works great in both situations for filling in the shadows (or creating them with the black). I have found the black and gold reflectors with some creativity, can render some interesting results. I come from the hunting world, so I have had my share of dealing with pop up blinds. I did not find it to be hard at all to refold the reflector back up and put in it's case. Practice it a few times and you will master it.

Comments about Raya 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc (42"):

I use this disc on nearly every job to enhance light, whether strobe or available. It's compact, durable and creates several options for various techniques. The translucent disc creates a beautiful soft light and it's quicker to pop up than a softbox. Highly recommend for any light kit. Great value for the price.

This is the first time I use a reflector and this reflector worked great. The quality of the item is great compared to the price. I will certainly get another in the upcoming months.

Your standard set reflector

By Sarah

from Buffalo, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Raya 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc (42"):

Very nice size, versatile, and ready in a pinch. I used this on a small-scale corporate video project and it worked very well in a few instances where I needed just a little bit of fill light or I needed to block some other light. Practice closing it a few times when you first get it because it's a little tricky - just keep twisting.

Comments about Raya 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc (42"):

Works exactly as advertised. I was concerned about the zipper catching on to the internal translucent disc, but this doesn't happen. Also, it is huge! I know the size was advertised, but I was still pleasantly surprised when it unfolded out of that little bag.

Exactly what I was looking for

By Scott

Comments about Raya 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Disc (42"):

Works great, folds up to a decent size and I like all the different options available for the price. Being able to chose the transparent or reflective white alone is what I was looking for. Having the black, silver and gold are just bonuses. My only complaint if I had one would be it's tricky to fold back down. I'm sure it will be easier with practice.
