The Lastolite 18" Mini TriGrip Difflector Soft Gold is the world's first dual purpose reflector and diffusion panel. The unique fabric developed for this product allows light to pass through a 2-stop diffuser fabric on one side and bounce off the other side, making it a truly versatile product whatever the lighting conditions. The TriGrip Difflector also features the unique TriGrip molded handle for accurate positioning of the reflector with just one hand.

I use this product mainly as a diffuser for outdoor nature shots. In cases where it's not convenient to secure the thang with duct tape or clamping it to a support rod, its shape makes it comparatively easy to rest one of its somewhat straight edges against a flat surface -- something you can't do with a circular diffuser. The diffuser property itself serves my needs for photographing flowers and other close up scenes. As for the striped reflector side, I'll still need to test it. I've seen the gold stripes reflect back onto my subject, at about half the power of a solid metallic surface; as to whethr that's sufficient, that depends on the situation. Despite what I've read in a couple of reviews, I had no trouble at all with folding this product. My diffuser arrived in perfect condition and the triangular shape lends itself delightfully well to folding. If you need to travel light, this combination diffuser/reflector is worth taking along.
