when using a reflector outdoors... what color is best? silver or gold?

i know the gold one would give it a warmer light on the person.. is that a good thing? wouldnt using the silver side give it a kinda harsh light? i have a gold, silver, black, and white side... would white be good? or can that not reflect? lol

Buy both, they aren't exactly expensive. Or just buy a gold one and then wrap a piece of cardboard with aluminum foil for the silver reflector.

For some strange reason, ended up going through the photos I took whilst I had a D3, there's something unexplainable about it, but I quite like it.

Dammit, I'm losing the fight against temptation. Someone save me D:

theres no best side to use on a reflector. if you want a more sterile light then use the silver side, if you want a warmer lighting then use the gold. it really depends on the ultimate goal you want to accomplish. for people i would think to use gold side, but if its say sunset and theres already a really warm lighting then the silver might be more useful.

it depends on the reflectors, some of the silver reflectors are "softer" because they are textured when compared to a white reflector.

Dangit all.. wish I had known about this before I shipped my T1i out this AM

The 60D isn't in the Refurb program yet. So, I either have to pay the $799 for a refurb.. or $899 for brand new (which I would have to do within the next four hours if I wanted to take advantage of, )...

I suppose I have other options, but I sold my t1i/body/50mm with a specific budget in mind, and now that's all messed up... and what's worse, due to the pending situation of the money from my T1i sale, my card may not be able to make the purchase tonite (and thus, I lose another $100)... le sigh.

So, right now in my bag..

Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-f/5.6
Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-f/5.6
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L
YN 460 flash

(no body, and the payment from my sale hasn't cleared yet. )

Hm. Revised plan -- I could actually purchase a 50D from the CLP and make money on my trade, but I effectively get the same image quality and lose video, and downgrade from a mint body with < 1000 clicks to probably something similar, but one can never know..

Canon seems to do a great job refurbishing DSLRs. My 50D looked brand new out of the box, even had the plastic on the screen.

I highly doubt a camera from CLP will come with anything close to 1000 clicks. It'd probably be less than 100, honestly.

And if I were in your position, I'd take the deal and would be happy with it. Sure it's the same sensor and you lose video, but the "semi-pro" features like the better body, rear dial, joystick, larger pentaprism viewfinder, and quick-access shooting options are all things I now can't live without. It's why after all this time I haven't traded in for a T2i, since even though the T2i offers video and a better sensor, the body and features of the 50D are something I now consider necessary.
