TOP 1000 REVIEWERon May 3, 2010
I have edited this review to keep up with my new review format, but the sentiments haven't changed!

Let's start with this: Is this of the same quality as a pro reflector? No. I am already feeling the rim starting to bend in places and ways it shouldn't, but I do not anticipate it breaking any time soon. The panels themselves are made of good quality material, and so far the case has withstood many travels! As one commenter helpfully pointed out, "the reflector folds up into a 16" diameter carrying case that is roughly 3.5" (but can be compressed to about one half that)".

Does this thing work like it should? Absolutely. As I mentioned it is made of good materials and has held up very well so far. I am a pro photographer, but never above a good deal - I am a big supporter of "the little guy". The versatility of this little reflector is excellent - you can use it for almost any situation, and I find myself switching from silver to gold to translucent within the same shoot, because we all know that changing an angle outdoors can completely change your lighting! Works quite nicely as a shoot-through if you have an assistant to hold it!

Would I buy this again? Absolutely. The sheer quality of this reflector at the price paid, makes the "best bang for your buck" cliché almost bearable! Out of all of my photog friends, not one can pick this out as a budget reflector, and several have been converted. It has stood up to the test of time (see updates below), and that is all I can ask or expect.



Almost a year, and PLENTY of shoots later, and this great piece of equipment is still going strong!!! I use this thing on most out door shoots which don't require off camera flash, and for portraits you can't go wrong! Highly recommended still! You can either order from Papa John's this week or get an excellent Reflector...your choice.

**EDIT 2**
It has now been 23 months, and the only issue I have had is some loose threads from the hanging loop. I cut them off, burned them with a lighter to stop any future deterioration and so far I have had no issues. My initial worries about it bending in the wrong places have been totally wiped out - this thing is still going strong. Highly recommended!

This reflector worked great on my senior photo shoots! My clients (and more importantly, their parents) loved them!

I am outdoor photographer and these shades are perfect to help me on a sunny day, they work brilliant under bright sun, i never thought as this could actually make my life this easy. I had watched videos to use this but didnt know it will be this good, value for money.

The material is really fine and the stitching is very neat, it has a small bag in which the 45" frame can be folded and kept, the wires around are very flexible can be twisted making it small in size and easy to carry, very rough and tough, i have travelled with it to my photoshoots and each time i open it , use it in sand, muds and otherwise leave it down on the mud, i have to just dust it and its as good as new. The durability is certainly not a concern as considering the money value to i had my doubts about how durable it will be, but actually its really strong and flexible, hence very easy to carry and no maintenance. The material of which its made is good quality and thick. As it can block the sun properly while shooting a image outdoor. Specially on beach you need it to monitor light proper and i was really happy using it. The gold reflection was really very good, bright and illuminating.
I am certainly impressed with the product.
1. The material used is very fine and good quality
2. it can be fit into a small pouch making it very easy to carry
3. Durable and needs no maintenance/care
4. Has 5 shades with a zipper you can open the inner isde and have the reflector shades open
5. The gold and silver material is really thick and good
6. Blocks the sun/reflects the light properly
7. It can be used for almost any light setup
8. You can easily switch from gold, to sliver to translucent as you need it and its right there handy for you
Its definitely a steel deal for the money the quality is impeccable and i intend to recommend it to my photographer friends around
Rare to get such good performing light reflector of such fine material at such low cost!
It also has a loop both the cover and the reflector itself making it easy for you to hold it while using it.

Cons: Honestly non for now i could find and share as quality and performance wise this is beyond my expectations, my photos are really coming out very good i am happy with it.

Folding the Reflector:
its very easy you have to hold it with your hands parallel and twist your hands in opposite direction, the ring will twist from center making a round inside the round and the frame will fold completely in 3 circles, just apply pressure when you are twisting the ring.

Sharing some images for you to see it yourself the size of the reflector and the small pouch in which it fits in, making it easy to carry.

love it. I've no used it twice. The size is frankly huge and it's a little difficult to fold down into the bag (do not lose, it's a must of you'll never be able to store it). But once you've got the knack of folding it it's not so bad. Love the different colors and it works well as a diffuser as well in full sun. Picture is taken using the gold side as a reflector on the right with a flash on the left through the window so it's almost strong enough to replicate a gel effect. Very happy with it. Seems well made for the price, sturdy and the coating doesn't look like it's going to flake off anytime soon.

Love it! The translucent and the black reflector are the two I use the most. To put it away into it's pouch, just hold opposite sides in both hands and twist one hand in one direction, the other hand in the other. The reflector will twist and suddenly jump into a size less than half of when it was open. It is a lot easier to transport and store in the pouch.Anyone who works with photography or video NEEDS at least one of these!

A great versatile reflector! Love the many types that come in one handy package. I've been using the same on for years for many shoots, and I can't live without it. Unzipping/zipping can take a minute or two, but you just need to be patient .... except when you are quickly trying to get that perfect shot and realize you need a different reflector. But that's just how a 5-1 reflector works anyway.
I highly recommend for any level of photographer.

This is the perfect size to reflect for 1-2 people. I've also used it to block sunlight on two people's faces at a time. It is very thick and sturdy and it is super easy to fold and put back in the case for small storage. I have not used it on a tripod, but I would if I had one, it seems very easy to use with that as well. I highly recommend this reflector if you are debating between brands!

I have been wanting to get a reflector and have debated to go cheap or go expensive but in the end, I decided that as my money goes to lenses, flashes, strobe studio lights, there are priority purchases and purchases that I have to keep under budget.

The reflector was under $15 and looking for similar sizes online, some charge quite a bit for it. So, the big question that you may be you actually get what you're paying for?

My answer is that for $15, this is an excellent, sturdy and also portable reflector. It comes with its own bag and there are no instructions. And if you accidentally thrash one, no problem...easier to replace because of its cheaper price than thrashing a more expensive one.

But if you have put away a windshield reflector and know how to bend/fold one, then you know how to put this one away. If anything, just make sure that you get it inside without it being caught on a zipper (this doesn't just apply to this product, this can apply to jackets with zippers, CD/DVD binders, etc.).

So, you get a translucent reflector, silver, gold, white and black and each reflector is its own bag. And once again, these are sturdy. I don't know about the others who gave it a negative but I haven't had any problems with them and let's say, even if I do, down the line....years later, it is less than $15.

I know how some of you may be thinking...well, I love the price and it has received considerable good reviews but maybe I should buy one with a stand and reflector holder.

If you have the $70 to blow on one, go for it! But I needed to keep things under budget and with the reflector going in my budget list, I will tell you that in my studio, it's being held by one of my expensive mic stands with a clamp (there are many examples on line of DYI reflector holders). Because this certain reflector is huge and a little heavy for the boom arm, I have three sandbags holding the boom arm on the other end to balance the weight, so it works perfectly.


For the price of this 43" reflector and the fact that it has 5-in-1, you can't really go wrong with it unless you start tearing into it. Once again, personally for me, there are other items in my studio that are priority when it comes to, multiple flashes,lights, softboxes, more stands or a full-frame camera, etc. And I needed one that doesn't break the bank and fit my budget, as well as something I can make it easy enough for DYI setup and for less than $15 and the fact that it is 43" and well-constructed and most of works.

Overall, Neewer's 43" 110 cm multi-disc reflector for me... it's perfect. For others, if you are on a budget...this is the one to get!

I've used this reflector 3 times since I bought it, and it works as expected. It is easy to put away (works like a sun shade for your car). It comes with a zip up cover, so the product has protection while not in use.

I wanted this for outdoor daytime shots without a flash, but it also improves indoor shoots with a flash. It is compact enough to cary around, which means I always have it with me.

I was extremely impressed with the quality of the product. For the price of it I was sure I would be getting a cheap product for a cheap price, but when I opened it up I was glad to admit the I was wrong. I've had the product for a few months now and I really appreciate how sturdy and durable the reflector has been so far. It was a lot bigger than I expected but my assistant for my first photo shoot using the reflector adjusted well enough.The only complaint I really have about the reflector is getting used to folding it away. There's a technique to it though and once you get it it becomes as easy as folding a blanket. I managed to use all of the different reflector just to test it out and got what I expected. The five in one interchangeable concept is a blessing to someone like me who does most of their photography solo. All in all I am very happy with this product and will be looking to neewer for future product purchases.
