Compared to the triflector, is the catchlight the only differences?

There are some subtle differences. I believe the parabolic curve and continuous nature of the eyelighter produces superior results. Additionally, because the surfaces of the triflector are not curved, you have to angle the side pieces higher in order to achieve similar results and when you do that you end up getting some unwanted reflections if you are using rim lighting.

I had the triflector originally but IMO the eyelighter is well worth the extra $100.

Thanks a lot for the info. I am very interested and curious to this continuous curve reflector.

here's a negative. Now that i've used it on several sessions. It's somewhat similar to a ringlight in that it needs to be right in front of the eyes for best effect. So if the model turns her head and looks in another direction the catchlight is no longer in the right place. In some ways I prefer a standard reflector with an assistant as it's much easier to move it when the model turns her head but of course you don't get the wrappping even though I have my assistant curve the reflector somewhat to simulate the eyelighter.
