  5 inch Reflector System
The 5DL is our best umbrella reflector. The compact 5" diameter makes it great for location work, and the 130 degree coverage is nice for lighting backgrounds. Incorporating the RP-1 Diffusion Dome, the 5DL-RP softens the light and integrates the flashtube and modeling lamp for accurate previewing. This is especially important when using barn doors, grids and snoots.
A variety of light modifiers are available for use with Norman 5" Reflectors
The GH5 Grid Holder snaps onto the reflector rim allowing a variety of Grids to be quickly installed and removed. Ideal for hair and accent lighting, Norman offers 1/2 inch thick Grids in 15, 30 and 40 degree coverage.

The Norman FFH5 Filter Frame Holder mounts on the outside of the reflector rim. This allows quick exchange of filters mounted in the FF5 Filter Frame, for precise control and dramatic effects. Norman also offers sets of high temperature color gel, neutral density and diffusion filters.
