  • Worth having but not wonderful..

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    > Very cheap

    > Folds up very small

    > Useful for small objects and for some potraits perhaps

    > No harm in having it

    > Adds another item to your camera bag :)

    Cons:

    > Not terribly big

    > Hole in the middle reduces reflection even more

    > When used over the lens a built in flash or even taller flashes may not reach the object, you need bright conditions, a nice roof for bouncing or perhaps external flashes.

    > Autofocus light can't reach past reflector when needed for darker conditions

    OtherThoughts:

    DX should get a larger, full reflector. I'm not sure how long this reflector will cope with being folded and unfolded..

    Bottomline:

    Get it if you are interested in adding some reflected light to macro shots or some potraits. If you're like me, get it because it's dead cheap and you're curious.
