Worth having but not wonderful.. – Foldable Large Flash Reflector Board Reviews

posted by crymb on 06/05/2008 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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.
