The Westcott 48×72″ Illuminator Solid Black Reflector is compact, lightweight and convenient to carry. When open, it’s a large rectangle. No disassembly is required to close the reflector. It effortlessly folds down to one third of its open. The interior high-strength, carbon steel frame is riveted, to stand up to extensive use. The black panel can be used to block unwanted light, serve as a backdrop or “reflect” dark areas onto a light subject to control contrast.
