So I think they'd just be called reflectors, but I'm guessing since that'd be a no brainer I'm sure there's another name for them. I did a search and got some results, but not what I was looking for. Anyhow, I want to get a little more experience outdoors and want to know opinions on those reflector things. First what is a good brand? Is there anything bad about going with the multiple colored? What are the different colors best used for? Is there a stand that can hold them? I'm mostly going to be out with my friends trying to get some practice, so having someone there to hold them isn't a option. I have a cheap tripod that has your typical camera mount so is there an attachment that I can put on that to hold them in place if needed? Thanks for any help.

are you referring to the 5-in-1 flexible version? That's what more call them. Personally, the cheap e-bay variety is just fine for the price. Linked a guy to a $32.95 version this morning, with free shipping. I prefer having a large oval shape and a smaller round with me.

Just saw some in a local photo shop here in town and was wondering if they were good. Not sure the brand name, but yes that sounds like what I saw. So you prefer the oval? I want maybe a mid grade version since the larger that I was looking at were around $115, but still want something that won't fall apart after a few uses. Thanks for the feedback!

Fotodiox products are decent quality & priced right

You may want to check Amazon to see if it is cheaper there
