Ven­ture into most pro­fes­sional stu­dios and you’re likely to spot some Pro­Foto gear. It costs big bucks, but it’s built to sur­vive daily use by de­mand­ing pros, and while many of us would balk at the price of a stu­dio flash setup, Pro­Foto ac­ces­sories like this re­flec­tor make more sense.

Ar­riv­ing in a 50cm flat cir­cu­lar case, the re­flec­tor ex­pands to 120cm. A sturdy frame stretches the fab­ric taut and a pair of han­dles make it easy to po­si­tion. Sep­a­rate white and black sur­faces mean you can ei­ther bounce back neu­tral il­lu­mi­na­tion to lift shad­ows, or flip over to ab­sorb light and re­duce re­flec­tion.

It’s still hard to ig­nore the cost, given many five-in-one re­flec­tor kits are cheaper, but that Pro­Foto qual­ity should give years of ser­vice.
