    Okay, so I'm not the brightest bulb in the world. Anyway, I bought a 30" Westcott Illuminator Reflector which can be folded and put in the nice pouch they provided. Only problem, no instruction on how to fold it, either written or on the provided DVD, nor could I find anything on their web site. Can anyone help?

    Yeah that will help :biggrin:

    Ok, let's for the sake of argument assume you have a reflector with silver front, gold back. Hold the reflector in front of you with stretched arm, silver at the front.

    Now twist one of the sides around, to show the gold back. The reflector now has the shape of an 8 on it's side.

    Bring the side you just flipped (the gold side) now to the center of the 8, gently flipping it a little bit further while doing so. The reflector will now flop nicely into "3x folded" and you're done!

    Thanks for the response guys. The first "youtube" video did the trick.
