A Great First Reflector Kit"Reflector kits can be confusing to new photographers. Some come with so many surfaces and misleading advertising that they become a burden. Some also come with flimsy stands. I own this unit and many of my students have started with this kit.
It's reliable, easy to set up and holds well. It is one person operable and the surfaces are all useful. There is a nice clean white, a silver for more punch and contrast, black to act as a light hole to increase contrast and shadow lines and they all zip over a 1 stop shoot through diffuser. There is a gold reflector, but I don't recommend gold in general as they tend to make skin look jaundiced and can really mess up your colour balance."

Love my kit!"I recently purchased and had the chance to use this 5 in 1 reflector kit with stand and I LOVE IT. It is very handy to have and can be used with a flash stand as another source of lighting. Having the stand is a great help when I don't have an assistant helping me. I like the fact that is it so easy to switch from black to white, to silver and gold for whatever I am needing for a specific shot! I highly recommend this product!

check the parts before you buy!"I bought this kit (in a box containing more boxes) and took it home. The instructional DVD was damaged and could not be played (I did an internet search and found that I am not the only one complaining of this). Furthermore, while the stand was ok, the arm that holds the reflector was improperly assembled at the factory.
I will have to return it. (2 hours of driving I will never get back) I should have checked all of the boxes at the store."

A great kit"I love using this reflector/diffuser. The stand is especially handy if you don't have an assistant. Just be careful that the boom arm is above one of the legs or else it will tip over. You may also want to put sandbags on the legs if you have it outside on a windy day.
The educational DVD isn't necessary. When you buy the kit, have a Henry's associate show you how to expand/collapse the ring. And then you can save yourself $20 and get the Westcott kit without the DVD.
Overall, I would rate this product a 4/5 because the construction seems good enough quality... but I think the design of the cover is short-sighted. Specifically, the gold is opposite the white and the black is opposite the silver. But I think it makes a lot more sense to have white opposite silver to reduce the number of times the cover needs to be changed."
