Hi folks,

Recently I've been doing quite a bit of outdoor portrait shots. Harsh mid day sunlight and strong backlight is an issue for me.

I want to ask where can I get a small reflector like in this video below. If you can give me a rough price, it'll be good. Thanks

We have a whole section of vShops and Mass Sales threads. Upper right hand under "marketplace". Check them out, give them a call.
Please browse through the forum / use the search function before posting. It is safe to assume that every common question has already been answered (sticky threads / FAQ threads). Product information can be found in the equipment threads, special photography section or the marketplace (shops & prices).

this mini reflector is cute.

FYI, to use reflector effectively, you need to have a reflector same size as your subject, the video already clearly demonstrated that.

so unless you are shooting miniature people at outdoor, or doing passport photo type of headshot, I'm not sure how do you use this pocket reflector for outdoor portrait.


anyway, TK foto selling Phottix products, but this pocket reflector is not listed here.

I think it might be the one listed as "2-in-1 Collapsible Reflector 12in" @ S$15?

Second that. I'd find 12" too small to be versatile, unless you're only shooting macros..

What I'm saying is this is very fundamental. Shouldn't considering as a tips.
Why there are so many sizes of softbox, umbrella, reflector available?
If one size can fit all, why would some photographers want to buy some gigantic softboxes, umbrellas and reflectors for?

Well I just started learning photography for <1 month, so I see even such a fundamental thing like this as tips.
