This tool is perfect to create fill for portraiture. I used to use either a pop-out reflector that required someone to hold it in the right position (often bent or curved to apply fill to just the right place), or a large panel that was a pain to set up. The Trilite couldn't be easier to use, and it is very flexible, allowing you to position it right where you need it.

Flimsy for its cost.

The concept of this product is excellent, but for what they charge, the materials are incredibly flimsy and cheap. Rubber and plastic parts won't last long. For the cost of this product,...Read complete review

The concept of this product is excellent, but for what they charge, the materials are incredibly flimsy and cheap. Rubber and plastic parts won't last long.

        The triflector create wonderful soft lighing. My initial reaction was that the client might find being surronded by relectors too confining. The exact oposite was true. The clients said they felt warm and protected. Truely beautiful lighting!

            Does exactly what it's meant to do and does it well. My only complaint, is that if you loosen the knob used to adjust the panel a little too much, the arm just falls off. A minor annoyance, that probably won't occur once I have more experience using it.

            It is what it is. Three small reflector panels made to fit in tight rubber setups that are cut to fit the tube setup to hold everything in place.If you're doing lots of headshots and don't want to spend an even more absurd amount for a Wescott Eyelighter, this is a great portable setup that does its job. If the investment is worth not having your model hold a reflector or building your own clamp system to hold reflectors in place, this may hold value for you.Otherwise, there's no way this is worth more than $ retail in materials.

              Creates a perfect fill light under the face to brighten under jaw, under nose, and eye sockets. Makes a great catchlight too. Fully adjustable to allow for some creative lightshaping as well.

                  I had heard of the Triflector some time ago but had resisted getting it thinking that I could do the same thing with out it.

                  Well I couldn't. You can use 1 reflector to brighten your subject but 3 at the same time when you shoot with no assistant? No way.

                  If you shoot portraits or headshots get this kit, you will not believe the results.

                    Where has this been all my life? It's easy to set up and take down so it's perfect in studio or on location. It adds so much to any headshot - sitting or standing. Way better than one reflector placed on the posing table. You need a shorter stand (not a heavy duty one) so that you can get it low enough for a sitting client. I highly recommend this item - your clients will love you for it.

For the cost of this product, you are better off buying a collapsable reflector or simply use foam core boards. I would have expected much better quality for this price. Unfortunately, I was too busy to return within the grace period and I am stuck with it. I wouldn't recommend this product.

                          I would give the product 5 stars but I think it's over priced. It's a fantastic product for headshots as well as quarter, half, and possible 3/4 length portraits in a studio setting. The arms work well and you get a very dynamic catch lights in the eye. I just know that it shouldn't be $[$] though, especially considering it doesn't come with a light stand, not even a cheaply made one. 120$ is really more like, but it does work very well.

                            This is not a well made piece of equipment. I would replace the rods with carbon fiber and make better reflector holders as the rubber holders are hard to position and the spacing seems a bit off. It would have been a better value if it came with its own stand and with a black bag versus the blue.

                              Have not got as much use out of this as I would have hoped for. I have found that shooting natural light is a lot more effictive for my style but, never the less this is a quality product. Would be nice if it came with a sand bag.

                                This is an essential tool for beauty photography. It allows you to provide essential fill, easily shapable to suit a wide variety of different looks. It's light weight, easy to transport, very versatile and sets up/breaks down easily. The catchlights in the eyes are much nicer than from a single assistant-held reflector, as well. Best of all, it leaves your assistant free to do other things than reflector duty. Bonus!

                                  I am a headshot photographer and love this reflector. I can drop one side down or the other to add or subtract shadow detail depending on the look I want of if it's a male or female.

                                  It assembles easily, and I took an old 8' lightstand that was in my studio and stored it in the nice carry bag that holds the reflector system. Now, all I need is my main light and I'm ready for any situation.

                                    Upgrade the mounting pieces for the reflectors to make them quicker and easier (especially in front of clients) and this product can go to 5 stars.
