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.

These umbrellas work as advertised, but I would say that they are extremely delicate. If you just want to get started on the cheap give them a try.

This umbrella diffuses light perfectly for video. I do recommend this larger model. What I do is attach four bright "sun" lamps to a tripod and shine them through the umbrella onto the subject at relatively close range. Unfortunately, the umbrella was shipped in a flimsy box that arrived bent, and I had to bend the umbrella back into shape before it would open.
