Howdy all.

Was wondering if the 5 in 1 kits, a diffuser + 4 interchangeable/reversable cover are worth getting. There's a UK website, Warehouse Express, selling the 95cm/38" version for £52 sterling + £20 delivery. that's about ?106, or $132. It'll be mainly used for outdoor stuff to begin with, since that what I'll be shooting next, but obviously it would be used for all situations that could benifit from it. Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Hi Cillian
I have two of em' and their quite handy. Most of the time I either use them as reflectors if I'm shooting outside without lights, or I use them without the covers to diffuse Red Heads. I also keep meaning to try using the black side as a flag.

To make the most of them you need either a stand holder thingy (A boom arm and grip clamp designed to hold them in place) or a very patient friend ;)

Thanks Rupert, appreciate your help. And I have a few patient friends lined up for this. Sure, they'll only be standing with their arm out for two days; they can pretend it's an endurance test!

Regards,
