Portable Reflector - a Good Buy

I use this product to hold my reflectors and gobos, occasionally to hold a portable backdrop too. It holds up in travel well, packs easily and is easy to assemble, though the knobs are a little finicky at times. This is a good buy!

Works!

This lightstand is a perfectly adequate inexpensive stand. The reflector holder is very useful in a pinch, but definitely does require some futzing with to get both ends at the right position to maneuver the card or reflector. I'd advise setting it up when the client isn't looking in order to avoid looking moderately foolish. A c-stand would do a better job, but you didn't have the budget for a c-stand did you? Acceptable alternative!

Not good

By

from Vancouver, WA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It's hard to get the clamps on the reflector. The clamp on one side doesn't work properly and won't open all the way to insert the reflector. Hard to maneuver. Wish I would have returned it as soon as I got it.

just as you'd expect from Adorama, great

By

from California  -  Semi-Professional

really versatile as it will hold every size reflector i own...the only problem i had was with the product demo...no "sprechen sie deutsch"...the solution is to go to the product video of the reflector arm (no stand)..

Great Idea Bad Engineering

By

from San Bernardino, Ca.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I've had the 42" reflector for a long time and finally bought the stand. I tried tightening the screw to attach the pivot arm onto the light stand and the press fit of the screw came out due to me over tightening it. The sad part was it wasn't loose. What was loose was the mounting stud coming out of the stand that is held with a small screw (the mounting stud is to small for the pole that it slips into. Rather the return it, my friend is taking it to a machinist to try and have it modified. In the future, I would spend a little more and buy someone else's product with a more durable design. In short, I got what I paid for.

Great product at an affordable price...

By

from NJ  -  Semi-Professional

They say you get what you pay for however I would say this is one of those suprises in life! Not very expensive and super useful. I use it for the obvious use but have found it useful for things as diverse as holding shoot-notes, my iphone and others... will be buying a couple more shortly.

Like having a 3rd arm

Great to hold the Flash point 5-1 reflector when your by yourself. solid and well made.

simple & functional

By

from Halfway, Missouri  -  Pro Photographer

I gave this a lower rating because the screw mount is not the larger size which I need for the Calumet stands that I have. I don't remember if that was mentioned in the ad or not. If you're depending on this in all kinds of circumstances, you might want to invest in one that is more sturdy. But for the casual photographer, it will probably meet his needs.

not bad at all

By

from Bahrain  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I recommend it for any reflector smaller than 52". I attached my 52" reflector but it doesn't hold it strong enough, just replaced the ball head with a swivel and everything was great.

Rodney C  How do i set it up?
AARON M  Pretty standard stuff -- microphone stands, light equipment stands, and similar items collapse down very similarly (I think that's what you're asking about). Loosen the tightening screws on the central shaft and extend it, then tighten them again; position the tripod legs; position the boom where you want it. Then just attach your reflector to illuminate your subject as you prefer. This stand basically just a way to hold a reflector without needing an assistant to do it. If you're asking how to set up a reflector, catching the sun or other strong light with it and directing it upward at your subject to reduce the downward shadows that light from above causes will usually do it.
