5.0 out of 5 stars A great all round reflector at a great price, 4 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ex-Pro 42 inch 110cm 5-in-1 Photographic Light Reflector - Silver/Gold/Black/White/Translucent (Accessory)
I'm always one for a bargain and when I saw I could afford two of these reflectors for less than the price of 1 other more well known brand I was intrigued. My main concern was focused on the quality; as the saying goes "buy cheap, buy twice" but I can say that the quality of these reflectors is thoroughly decent.

The size makes them ideally suited to small product work or head and shoulder portraits - bigger sets will need a bigger reflector.

The best part about these is the versatility they offer. Each reflector comes with the main pop open reflector which is translucent white and can act as a diffuser for a studio light or the sun when outdoors. On occasion I've used mine as a diffuser for window light on some still life scenes on a table and they give a great soft light. Also included is an outer cover that has black, gold, silver and white depending on how you put in on so you can control how much light you kick back in, or indeed 'suck out' with the black cover. I was worried that maybe the zips would fail on these covers, only because it's the most obvious part that will take the most wear, but they haven't yet and I've had mine nearly 2 years. Admittedly they haven't been hammered every day but they have had use.

All in all you have a total of 5 ways of reflecting light with these. The unit folds down into an included pouch about 30 odd cm's across so they are small and easy to transport.

You can pay much much more for similar reflectors but these have served me well so far at a very reasonable cost.
