I saw it, or something similar, in use. Worked fine.

But a poncho weighs less, takes less space, and for stuff like swimwear on the beach, it works fine to let the model change under a poncho.

One astonishingly dumb oversight on the chambing room; if they would have made the whole thing white, it would be used as a fabulous portable reflector...

I have one and used it few times, works fine and doesn't take that much room. Mine is made by a different manufacturer, can't remember who and yes one side is a gold reflector.

Yes, I've got one very similar to that. Models love it, much more comfortable for them to change in than a towel, or a car. And you can set it up most anywhere, just tell em to take off there heels before getting in it on soft ground, don't want holes.

I've got one by a different maker. Got it off ebay for about $20.

If anyone can figure out how to put this thing back into the case, PLEASE post. I know several photographers with these -- none of us can figure out how to put it away. If we DO get it put away -- we don't know how we did it.

BTW, models and clients love it!

I looked at one of those a while back and while the design is good there are a couple of factors you'll want to take into account...
1) Wind...you set that thing up and then you have to watch that the wind doesn't blow it away.
2) Theft...if this is a great idea for a photographer no doubt others may want it for themselves and so you are constantly having to look where you set it up to see if it's still there.

My suggestion...a couple of hulahoops and opaque material pinned to make a tube. You set it on the ground, the model steps in, you raise it high enough to afford her complete privacy (ie. make the tube long enough...6 ft.?), the model changes outfits, you lower it to the ground and the model steps out of the hoops. PrestoChangeo. [This is an actual unit I saw another local photog use on the beaches].

There is one thing though to this...hulahoops don't bend well to make it smaller so if you have a compact or subcompact you might have storage problems in your vehicle.

I'm planning on putting together a tube with hoops made of smaller diameter PVC piping and 45 degree joints. I think the breakdown would make this a far more portable unit.

Use it all the time......models love it. In windy conditions, use some tent stakes.

FWIW

Walmart has a similar thing for about $35. I think its a camp shower. It has the tie downs for the wind and is pretty easy to set up/take down. Models I've used it with like it.

I have one (different manufacturer), and it works great.

Mine is easy to get back into its bag. Folds up just like a round reflector.
