This has got to be one of the most genius product idea for photography. The SquareBounce is a remake of the traditional collapsible reflector used by photographers everywhere. Shaped like a “flat umbrella”, it’s easier to hold and orient in almost any photography situation and, as their website points out, it can actually double as an umbrella if need be. No, I’m not joking. The reflectors themselves are water-resistant.
The size of the reflectors is 3.5ft x 3.5ft (107cm x 107cm), which is a tad small in my opinion. If you’re only doing head or upper body shots, these are the tool for you. They look quite ergonomic, and they come with a carrying pouch, so you or your second shooter don’t have to lurk them around, which is kind of annoying with the conventional reflectors.
These reflectors come in pair, a white and silver one. They will set you back $189, plus $35 shipping, so $224 a pop. A bit overpriced, but then again, so is everything else that has to do with photography. You can visit their website HERE for more details.
