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.

I had to replace a worn out white reflector and purchased this one because it has 5 options. I have only used it for a couple of weeks so I cannot attest to its durability. It's priced right!

Was wondering how a 5-in-1 reflector could be sold at such a low price, but I'm glad that I bought this. Quality is sufficient for my needs; nothing feels like it has been skimped out on or cheap. Compacts nicely.

Nice Reflector

By Ray Ray

from Long Island, NY

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

This seems like it's a well made piece of gear. Thisnreflector is quite large, which is a good thing since the one I had was a little too small for a couples portrait. It folds up nice and the different reflector zipper bag fits snuggly over the frame. Everything fits nicely into a compact travel pouch. Seems to be well made and for the price you can't go wrong! I just hope it can hold out to a lot of use. Time will tell. All in all it is a great value.

Love this!

By Ben

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

I absolutely love this thing! The main screen is white and has a very solid build. The four colors slide over the screen like a pillow case. Double sided zipper so you can use which ever color you want easily. And it collapses down small enough to fit in my camera bag. Couldn't ask for a better product!

I haven't used it yet, but I started to get used to it and I like it; good size, material and small. You must use a video from You____ to get some help on how to fold it back to its original form and size.

Great reflector for the $

By cjinsb

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

We use this reflector mostly for ENG-type stuff and it fits the bill nicely. The reflector edge is sturdy but not difficult to fold up. The multiple options are nice to accommodate various light conditions. The price was half what we were going to pay for another competitor so we bought two and are glad we did. Can't vouch for the longevity of the product yet but imagine we'll get quite a bit of use out of it.

Great Product for the Price

By Matt G

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

I am a portrait/landscape photographer, and obviously natural lighting isn't always favorable when shooting portraits. I really love the functionality and the quality of these reflectors, I was actually surprised at how well they are made. I was also extremely surprised by the size of these bad boys! I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an affordable solution their outdoor lighting (and possibly indoor lighting) problems. The variety of colors is also very nifty and handy when you have to carry a million different camera bags and accessories along with the reflectors.

I have been wanting to get a set of these and was so happy with my purchased. Had to take beach shots mid-day of some little girls and these really helped reflect the light so they weren't so washed out. Now I need to get a stand so when I am by myself I can use them.

I considered buying through a supposedly cheaper online retailer and reconsidered once I saw the lower price here. The reflector set is huge and awesome. I'd recommend it to anyone.

        Lightweight and versatile. Amazing that so many different surfaces are packed into such a compact package! The larger size allows greater coverage. Recommended for filling in shadows and giving that extra glow and "pop" for outdoor portraits.
