Yes, we sometimes have spelling errors on this site. But this time around, it isn’t a spelling error. Protofo is announcing new collapsible reflectors today, and they’re being coined as, “squircle.” This is because of the specially squared circle metal frame shaping the design. The company is also putting two handles on the reflectors–but in real life use I’ve barely seen any assistant hold a reflector like this. Instead, they’re often holding them on the sides.
According to the press release, there are four types of two-sided Reflectors are available: Silver/White, Sunsilver/White, Gold/White & Matte Black/White. There is also a translucent screen available to be used as a diffuser. Each of these is available in two sizes: Medium (80 cm /32’’) and Large (120 cm /47”).
The company has a blog post talking more about the reflectors and a demo video is after the jump.
