Flashpoint 33" White Interior Umbrella with Removeable Black Cover. Reviews:
Less is more!
Actually I am a retired "Pro" photographer!1. I must have been asleep when I ordered this umbrella. I thought I was getting a 43 inch and instead I got a 33 inch umbrella. I decided to keep it anyway because returning it would cost more than it was worth.2. Turns out that it is perfect for products shots. I am selling a lot of my photo stuff bought over the years on.I haven't tried the shoot thru option as the white material is thin and the umbrella has a black cover.All in all this very economical product does a lot for the money.
A fine umbrella. Good for shoot through or bounce off. The only thing I worry about is whether the caps that hold the black back on and fit over the metal umbrella tips will break loose. I've only used it a couple times, and it has not been a problem.
I use these for bounce flash and to shoot through.
They are lightweight and very portable. I pack two of these and two light stands with Adorama umbrella mounts with flash shoe in a 36 inch rifle case which also holds my wireless triggers and two Sunpak flashes.
This umbrella has worked fine for me for several months of weekend warrior type use. One of the connectors for the black cover came unstitched but I was able to sew it back relatively easily and quickly. I think it was worth the savings buying this product.
I am using this unit with my Nikon Sb800. I t allows me to take glamour shots with two strobes with out wires and I can use the Andorama umbrella either shot through or with the back on for soft light and all self contained..
I used two of these with Nikon strobes as diffusers to shoot a group shot of 40 people outside to add fill light. They worked great. Packing was an issue and they collapsed down nicely and took little room in my luggage.
i use this for a small studio in my house but i feel very disappointed when i try to remove the black cover it's very hard in the top and it is`t practical i decide to buy a withe umbrella for use this as a softener
