This is an Impact 60" white satin umbrella with removable black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a softbox.
Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.
This size is perfect for a 1 - 2 person full-length portrait, or a 4x6 ft product setup.
Backing may be removed half way, providing a unique combination of light bounced from different surfaces.

Black cover is easy to mount/dismount, no velcro needed. There are eight mounting tips; each one mounts to the end of a rib.
I am lighting it using a Nisson 621 flash gun. The light is soft and it does a good job of flowing around the subject. I will be trying it with a 400ws monolight next week. I will try to remember to update this review.
For those who have written that a speedlight can not light the entire umbrella, I have a tip for you. Use two light stands; the umbrella on one and the light on the other. I like to use a heavy light stand for the umbrella and a light-weight one for the light. Position the light behind (or in front if using as a reflector) the umbrella. Take a photo and see how much of the umbrella is lit. Move the light back until a photo shows that the entire umbrella is lit. This technique also allows you to center the light for even coverage.
Mounted it high in a large living room with light-colored ceiling and walls, large open doors, and huge expanse of windows. I was able to take photos at any spot in the room. From the near end of the room to the far end of the room was about 2 stops, with most of the falloff being in the far 1/4 of the room.
I get great photos using white shoot-thru, white reflector (black cover removed), and black-backed reflector. Of course, each technique produces its own effects; but they are all good. -- Another good shot is to place model between the umbrella and the camera, and add a little fill light from another source. Very dramatic!
I may purchase another one. Placing one right and left of a subject would give the "safe" shots that are needed at any portrait shoot before moving on to the more interesting lighting arrangements. Also, you could more evenly light a hall or a group with two of them.
