The LimoStudio 33" Umbrella does exactly what I want: softens harsh strobes and LEDs and diffuses light for a more flattering appearance on products and faces. In comparison to my Westcott 43-inch umbrella, the LimoStudio looks and feels cheap: thinner fabric, dangling threads and lightweight shaft and flimsy ribs. It's less than half as expensive as the Westcott and, like most things in life, you get what you pay for. It's okay for indoor studio use but I wouldn't drag it around for location shoots. The ribs will bend if you drop or bump it (I did). However, for the cost of a Big Mac and fries it's darn tootin'!

Great buy. Easy affordable and quick delivery. No complaints. Does what I want it to which is to evenly disperses lighting in a soft manner. Would buy again.

I needed this after I stepped on one of the umbrellas that came with my full set of studio lights. I'm so happy that the company sells replacements. I was very worried for a while! This is an exact umbrella replacement for the LimoStudio-Photography Photo Portrait Studio 600W Day Light Umbrella Continuous Lighting Kit sold here on Amazon. If you like that product, you will like this too. It ships fast and arrives quickly, even out here to my house in the Middle of Nowhere, Mississippi.

I purchased 2 of these Photo Umbrellas to complete a lighting set-up I had purchased elsewhere. My goal was to create a low-cost portable lighting solution which could be switched from both continuous lighting to flash all while using the same stands.

For the low price point, these Umbrellas work well. They are of decent quality and provide very nice flash diffusion through the Umbrella and also subtle bounce flash if turned the other way.

This is an all-around good product.

the metal rods are only attached with sewn thread, so it breaks easily. had to return it because it arrived detached.

I bought the LimoStudio 33" photo umbrella to replace another brand of umbrella that was damaged. What I received is exactly what I expected. It arrived in perfect condition, is the size I needed, it fits my Smith-Victor light socket, and it is well worth the price paid.

Umbrella arrived very quickly, which was great, but the item is extremely flimsy/cheap. First time out, two of the metal wires bent right in half. I know the item is inexpensive but I expected it to last longer than an hour.

Ok, you may too young to remember the Morton salt commercial, but she carried a white umbrella. :-)

The reason I purchased this umbrella was to carry with me to produce an even lighting when needed, putting it on my shoulder or wherever it works the best. And when shooting macro, it helps to block breezes. Of course, it works great on a stand too. And if it starts sprinkling salt, I'm covered; lol.

The shaft of the umbrella is app. 22" long from underneath the open umbrella. The shaft diameter is 7.7mm. The locks for holding the umbrella open or closed work flawlessly. The diffusion is even.

I know when I get ready to look for studio lighting, LimoStudio will be my first choice.

Great price and quality, 5 stars for sure.

Great shoot through Umbrella - does what I want for a cheap price. My only issue is that I should have bought the bigger version for the dollar more...

Pros - Clean and White , Good Quality, Metal on it seems to be of a good quality and shouldn't bend easily.
Cons - Not a fan of the companies LOGO information stamped on it - it's bigger than I'd like it to be or at least make the logo a lighter color.

Would I buy this again... maybe - I prefer the Cowboy Studio umbrella to this version. But really it's a good quality product and between buying this and the Westcott umbrella - buy two of these instead.

Great umbrellas worked perfect. As for people commenting on quality...... really? You get what you pay for, yeah i get that but its just an umbrella. Works great and if you knock a stand over and bend it... you know what a 50 dollar umbrella would bend too. So don't read the doubters, these work great and if they bend from falling then they bend. At 9 bucks a pop just get an extra to have on hand. These are just as good as higher end ones in my opinion. I just use a poster tube and carry the umbrellas around in it to keep them secure. That's all you need right?
Worked great.... worth the money.... would buy again
