A Must For Studio Or Outdoor Photography!

The silver side is very reflective and brightens both shadows and highlights, but does not change the color of the available light. The gold side side works basically the same way, while adding a warmer color to the image.
The white side brightens up the shadows to produce a softer light. It is not as bright as the silver side so you can get closer to your subject. The black side just the opposite, and is used to subtract light and create shadows in certain areas.
In the middle of the frame is a translucent material which is used as a diffuser. This side is usually held directly above the subject to soften the sun’s natural light. It will always go between the light source and the subject.

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!!!Read more ›
Customer service was A+ to correct a slight issue with the order.
Would do business again with seller since they made the correction painless.
PROS: Great quality, works well at refracting/diffusing light, several color options, compact and easy to carry, incredible value for price
CONS: slightly smaller compared to the rectangular ones, can be difficult to fold for some
OVERALL: Great product for the cost, highly recommended.

TO FOLD FOR STORAGE:
1. Hold in front of you like a steering wheel but with hands at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock
2. Release right hand grip, turn hand and regrip so thumb is pointing down (now ready to fold)
3. Twist wrists in opposite directions (right hand towards you and left away, creating figure 8)
4. Bring hands together as you twist
5. Reflector will be in 3 layers and middle will tuck into other two. Don't be afraid to use a little pressure!

I recommend not buying a 5-in-1 reflector in general but rather go for a silver+white one. Here is why:
The 5-in-1 reflector has these two combinations available: silver+black and gold+white (and the softbox inside part that is not so great because too thin anyway). For changing between the two you need to unzip the surface, flip it inside-out and pull it over the frame again. Nothing you really want to do outside in the middle of a photo shoot. And that is the problem for me because I only need silver+white, a combination unfortunately not given.
Why you need silver+white:
The silver side is highly reflective and brightens up your subject quite extreme. It brightens both, shadows and highlights. It does not change the color of the available light. You need to be very careful to not blind your subject. It works best when you have an assistant holding the reflector from a more far away angle.
The white side brightens up the shadows way more than the highlights and thus producing a more soft light. It is not as bright as the silver side so you can operate closer/more straight at your subject.
Why you don't need gold:
The gold side works basically like the silver side (see above) but adds a warm color to the photo. In fact it discolors your subject and it will look super yellow-ish. In the world of digital post-processing that is nothing you would ever want!Read more ›
