The Strobepro Easy Up Litepanel can be used as a large reflector with its reversible white/silver panel, or as a translucent scrim with its diffusion panel.
The frame is made from lightweight and durable aluminum.
Stand or boom
Put this panel exactly where you want it. The whole frame mounts on a spigot using its integrated pivot bracket, which is toothed to prevent unwanted sagging. The secondary attachment allows you to mount it on a C stand grip head. If you have an assistant, try this on our Super Boom. It's the ideal setup for an outdoor sun diffuser!

I'm very happy with these and would buy them again.
I would echo some of the previous reviews in that I would love to see a black fabric made for this frame in order to use it as a flag, and it would have been great if the included transport bag's main zipper had two sliders so that we could leave the mounting hardware attached and close the zipper from both sides around it.
I have two of these. They're great for the times when a large scrim is too much and small one too small. I use these all the time, since I shoot mostly food and still life. Well made, just do not lose the attachment parts! I keep mine in a baggie. One this I wish this kit did have is a black cloth option to turn it into a black flag.
This reflector/flag/scrim unit is fantastic, and has seen a lot of use since I picked it up about 6 months ago. It's lightweight, but sturdy, and easy to transport when folded up. I'm likely going to pick up a couple more in the coming year... Awesome for a sun-scrim when shooting portraits outside, great for a reflector in my studio, and really helpful for diffusing fill light when shooting home interiors. I'd love to see a black fabric option as well for creating shadows(going to have one made for the unit I have already...). The only gripe I have is having to use an allen key to attach/remove the mounting hardware, it's a bit of a pain. That said, I picked up some tool-free bolts off amazon to use instead, and it's waaaay more convenient.
I think this product offers good long term value for the cost. My only issue is that with the supplied mounting brackets attached, the frame will not fit into the supplied bag and still let me close the bag zipper. Either the bag or the mounting bracket should be modified to let me leave the mounting bracket attached. I don’t want to remove the bracket (Allen screw attached) every time I put the frame into the bag.
