Sometimes you need a reflector that is just a bit larger than one you might use for photography.You can mount the reflector on a light stand like the Impact Multiboom Light Stand/Reflector Holder that has clips. Just make sure you use a sandbag for the stand because the reflector does have some weight.One of the most common uses I like to use it for is diffusion outside, since it is so big it give your talent a little bit more room to move compare to a small reflector.It seems to be very durable and can take the abuse. And the zippers seem to be well made, I have never had them go off track in the 3 months I have used it.Of course the small ones are easy to collapse. But this one take a couple of tries.So far I must say I have been impressed by the Impact products I have review so far.This is single most cost effective lighting tool you will own.If you want to watch my review it on video, check out my site learningdslrvideo.

Verry huge reflector and for the price you can have better. But mine doesn't stay flat probably because of the way it was build. And with wind it should harder to take it flat for light reflextion. Also my zipper pin of the reflector are both in the same direction, not really handy. It does the job but [...] I'm still happy because this thing will always be practice in studio as gobo or with white reflector but for serious outdoor shooting I'll think about california sunbounce tool.

I love everything about this product other than folding it to fit back in case. It takes two people to accomplish this and quite a chore.

Works just as you would expect. Suggest watching a googled YouTub on collapsing technique. Makes it first disassemble easier.

Worth it

By Victor Trasvi�a

Comments about Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Oval Reflector - 42 x 72":

Lost the first one I bought a few years ago and quite honestly I just had to buy it again, it works as a white background when need it and it just reflects a ton of light ! Worth every penny but might be bigger that what most ppl need altough I personally think you'll be better off with it than with out it

        I live and shoot in South Texas, so that means a LOT of sunlight. This works great as a diffuser and a reflector. Do yourself a favor and buy the frame to hold it and you'll be that much happier with it.

            I was very pleased with this product. Good Outer build quality and nice reflection panels. The shipping was great and I really love the diffuser! Great product for a nice price (it's pretty big so watch out that it doesn't flap into your face while unfolding).

                I am very happy with this reflector. It does exactly what you expect, it folds up to less than 2 feet in diameter, and comes with a nice case. The reflector uses good materials and is more durable than I thought it might be at this price.

                    This reflector is great to compensate as a fill or use as a scrim. It's big enough to knock the light down for a two people on a sunny day, but its a pain to collapse it back down; specially on a windy day if you are by yourself. Other than than is great that is a 5-in-1 reflector. I just wish it was a little lighter and not as bulky when collapsed with the cover.
