Product Description

Size: 43 inch

This translucent umbrella is a great addition to your studio setup. This umbrella works well to diffuse the light from any flash, creating a soft even light for your subject. The lack of a black backing gives this umbrella the ability to flash through the umbrella if needed and simulate the effects of a softbox. Portability is a plus for location shots. This size is good for head shots and small to medium sized products.

Available in multiple sizes; Useful for shoot through photography to similate the effects of a softbox; Easy to assemble/disassemble; Compact and easy to store; One year manufacturer warranty.

I had purchased this exact item before and was VERY pleased with it. HOWEVER they have since changed vendors. previosly everything in them was fabric or metal, with the new vendor major functional components are cheesy plastic. and they now have the cowboy studios logo emblazened on them. the logo would be fine if the were used exclusivly as a bounce reflector, however being a white umbrella they are also used as a shoot thru, hence the logo might as well be a dirty smudge in the way it would effect the light.

This is a very poorly made umbrella. It did the job but at the end of the day it had crimps and holes in the metal from simply being in the light stand. I threw it away after 12 hours work. Perhaps it is not meant heavy use. Not recommended.

Low cost, simple to use and does the job. These shoot-through umbrella's do a great job with my canon 580exII flashes and when used in tandem for a group reduce the harsh shadows and reflections that might be caused by unshielded flashes. Keep in mind that you will lose about a stop and half of lighting when using these and adjust accordingly. Great for the price!

Over all my feed back on the item is positive.

The umbrella I purchased is as described in item overview. It is not a high quality item but is great for occasional use by non-professionals. One can not beat the price. Even professionals would find the umbrella useful with gentle use and care. The item is reasonable quality for the low price.

In conversation with the seller I found the seller to be helpful and considerate concerning an issue I had with shipping. Seller made an offer to me exceeding my expectation so my review of the seller is top notch.

I spent a significant amount of time reading reviews and at first, I purchased a Westcott umbrella. I figured you get what you pay for .. right? Well that is not always true. Sometimes a lower price is just a good deal. This umbrella is sturdy and very durable. I've only done some practice shots, but it is of much better quality than other umbrellas I've used. Definitely going to buy more. Umbrellas are not made to last a lifetime, but I think this one will last for a good amount of time and for this price, you can purchase additional for backup.

The umbrella work fine, the only thing is that is made of a bad quality metal pieces that bend very easy.

The quality isn't the best, but they're not bad for the money. The plastic tab that is on the back end of the tube (the end where you'd hold an umbrella) fell off right away, but beyond that- good value for the price.

Surely you don't buy $5 umbrellas to last a lifetime. I use this with my 285HVs and they work great. Don't man handle them and they won't break, sort of like any other umbrella. Not much else here. They didn't catch fire when I opened them so there is that. If there is something you want to know comment.

Update: Umbrellas are still working strong. I added a product image of a self portrait of myself to get an idea of their capability. No temperature shift seen. The temperature of the lights is the temperature the umbrellas transmit.

Update II (2-10-12): I broke one of the arms of the umbrella. I was half expecting this to happen. It wasn't from regular use but rather bending it when it came in contact with a lightstand I was collapsing. I repaired the arm by sticking a kebab skewer in the arm and lacing it to the arm as a sort of brace. It works well and I didn't have to buy a new one. Still recommended for the price.
