About Photoflex

Photoflex® adjustable reflective Umbrellas were already the most versatile photographic umbrellas available today; and now they're even better. The new andimproved umbrella line includes ribs and strut pivots that are now made from a fiberglass composite, which is not only stronger, but also offers better resiliency and durability than steel or aluminum.
This new design feature allows for almost carefree handling, all but eliminatingdamage caused from over bending delicate steel tube ribs. All umbrella center poles are extruded and closed off at the base (vs. folded, hollow tubes, like many other umbrellas, that are easily bent and dented) adding to the durability of the Photoflex® umbrella model.

The RUD 45" Shoot Through Umbrella is not only great as a "shoot-through" umbrella, but it can also be used as an inexpensive bounce light.

Umbrellas have a 3 year warranty.

As a pro photographer I never know what kind of elements I will be shooting in, even with lights. We do outdoor group pics for the high school football teams. The wind blew over 2 light stands and demolished the umbrellas. They had hollow core stems and flimsy metal struts. These have a solid core main stem and the struts are flexible fiberglass. I love the material and the construction. I plan on buying a couple more sets.

Questions about this item:

Ike C  Why did you choose this umbrella over the convertible umbrella--shoot through and reflective? Isn't the convertible umbrella more versatile?
GARTH S  I have the 60" convertable version and never use the black backing. In my tests, using the black backing doesn't affect the light bounced off the umbrella. There are, however, two benefits of the backing. First, it can minimize the spill off walls that could bounce back on your subject when bouncing the flash off the umbrella. Second, when shooting through the umbrella, you can use the backing to mask part of it to make the light more directional. So, yes, the backing does offer an extra degree of flexibility. It just isn't something that I do with the 45" umbrella. I'd use the 60" for these things. Over the years I have collected many Photoflex umbrellas. My most used umbrellas are the 60" convertibles and this white satin 45". The 60" is my first choice and one I highly recommend. This 45" is a must-have for those times when the 60" is too big or for secondary lighting on the subject.
Ike C  Your explanation is so helpful, Garth. Being on a tight budget, I've been weighing the pros and cons of which umbrella would be most useful. Thank you so much, Garth! I heard that one speed light is not enough to use for the 60". May I know what light source you use for the 60" convertible?
