What the sides are used for:
Silver reflects a lot more light than the white side. The reflection tends to be a bit harsher and contrasty as well. It's therefore particularly useful when combining it with low-powered lights or when the sun is at its weakest. The silver side can be a bit blinding for your models -- in this case, use the white for a more modest reflection.
The white side reflects a more modest amount of light. The reflection is also a bit softer. Using the white side is a better option when working with high-powered strobes or when using it in harsh sunlight.
The gold side works very well on darker skin. It's also useful to recreate a sunrise/set quality of light.
The black panel is used to absorb stray light. This is particularly useful as a lighting flag or gobo. The black panel can also be used opposite your main light source, to increase the contrast on your subject.
- Scrim / Diffusing Panel:
The scrim is a near see-through material that is used to diffuse direct light. This can be used outdoors to soften harsh sunlight or can be used in combinition with any artificial light sources that can't be modified with softboxes.

- Awesome product!!!Review by Dewald
Price Value Quality
Due to it's size it's great for using the diffuser fabric for casting softer light over full length shots, and the other reflective colors work great even for group photos in lower lighting conditions.
Over-all I am super happy with this product! In the very first instance it was a bit confusing to get it folded back into it's packaged shape, but after a couple of tries it becomes second nature ...
The BEST is watching peoples' jaws drop when you unzip this little circular pouch and when you let it open up you have this massive reflector, and when you fold it back up again it's as-if people can't believe you actually got a 1.8m x 1.2m (rectangular) reflector folded back up to fit in it's conveniently sized carry pouch. My wife also loves it because regardless of it's size, it's light enough for her to hold and not get tired :o)
Great product and GREAT service from CameraStuff.co.za
Thank you for everything!
