The Fotodiox Premium-Grade 5-in-1 Reflector provides the ultimate in photo solutions. Use as a fill reflector with a soft cold silver, neutral white or warm tone gold. Can be used as a plain diffuser or use the black to block unwanted light. The Fotodiox Premium Grade 5-in-1 reflector disc is made of a premium grade, quality reflective and diffusive materials guaranteed to flatten out when opened. A slip-cover with four colors are enclosed with the diffusive disc: soft gold, black, soft silver, and soft white. Disc collapses down to about 1/3 of its original size to fit into the included carrying case making it a breeze to transport and store.
Five Color Fabrics:
Translucent Diffuser - For filtering direct sunlight to create a neutral soft white light, great for outdoor photography
Soft White - For minor enhancement of the shadow area, or can be used as a white backdrop for headshots
Soft Silver - For major enhancement of the shadow area, generally creating high contrast images
Black - For blocking an unwanted light source, to alter the contrast of an object, can be used as a black backdrop for headshots
Soft Gold - For major enhancement of the shadow area, and enhance the skin tone for a more natural look

For those that haven't used a 5-way reflector before, the inside fabric that is permanently attached is a diffusion cloth. There is an outer cover that it made up of two double-sided fabrics. One side has a white front and gold back. If you turn the cover inside out you get black on one side and silver on the other. And this is the problem and the reason for four stars instead of five.
Most photographers will use silver or white a lot more than they'll use black or gold. In order to switch between silver or white you have to flip the cover inside out each time. This takes precious time while shooting and adds unnecessary wear and tear. Ideally it should have silver and white on one side and gold and black on the other. This way you could easily switch between silver and white by just flipping the reflector 180 degrees, without having to take the thing apart every time. I tried the gold fabric once and will never use it again. It makes skin look awful with a ghastly artificial Trump-orange-like tan.
The 40x60 size is just about right for upper body shots using either the reflector fabrics or the diffuser. In fact I haven't used any of my smaller reflectors since buying this one. It's big enough to provide plenty of coverage but not so big that it becomes unwieldy.
I'm more than satisfied with this one and I'll probably pick up another with my next order. It's good value with as good or better quality at less than half the price of comparable products in the local photo stores.
To use it just get a reflector clip like the Neewer reflector disc clip for around $6. The clip fits over top of the 5/8" stud on your lightstand. To keep it from swinging around get a 6" velcro tie, which you can run through the included loop and tie around the bottom of the lightstand.
To keep it simple this works wonderful, silver, gold, white, black, see through all do exactly what they're suppose to do. And being 42" the light is not as direct so it is diffused a little bit. I've got some pictures of when I first tried it with my horses (a few months ago) and just recently when I was doing a photo shoot. Of course with my luck I cannot locate the photos I got of my horse but I do have the photos from my sunset photo shoot.
I would recommend this for anyone but it is a big reflector so if you can afford getting a decent stand I would defiantly suggest that as well. I'm currently saving up and looking for a stand that'll help me because it was challenging to try and get a well lit picture while also trying to keep my subject where I wanted them.
I'm also sorry this is a pretty blah review but I wanted to add some pictures for you guys :D I also got the 22" and will be showing some pictures of that one too.
The size is large enough to light a full body shot and it is big enough to use the white or black as a background in an upper body or just a head shot. I have found that I still need a smaller size of reflectors in some cases, so another set is necessary.
Some may prefer to buy 2 sets of the cheaper reflectors for the same price, but I prefer the route of less aggravation and am happy with one good set in this size. Definitely recommend this brand.
Someone may prefer to buy 2 cheap reflectors instead of one good one, but I prefer the less aggravation route. Everything works , the white reflector is white, no discoloration, definitely recommend Fotodiox.

If you are really into portrait wedding/photography, I would suggest you to go for a larger reflector instead.
In all of my field tests I've been very happy to have this reflector. So much so that I pack it on family outings as I know I'll be able to use it to kick my lighting up a notch on every shot.
I now consider it an essential part of my kit.
I received one with a defective zipper on the pouch, but a free replacement was sent.
