About Photogenic

Photogenic's famous Eclipse umbrellas are notable for their ability to eliminate the "ghost" image created by the exposed ribs of ordinary umbrellas. Eclipse models feature white or silver reflective fabric which covers the ribs, removing them from the primary light path. Additionally, each Eclipse comes with a removable black fabric cover which fastens atop the rib frame to confine any light that penetrates the white or silver lining.

INSTALLATION: Installing the umbrella is easy. Insert the shaft through an available hole on any of our stand adapters and tighten with a thumb screw. Adjust the light pattern by loosening the thumb screw and moving the shaft in or out, positioning the reflector closer or farther away from the light head.

OPTIONS: Do you use the Hi-Gain reflector PL7R with the PL-2 PowerLight? Did you know you can even use this reflector with your Eclipse? Simply punch out the PL7R reflector's break away tab and mount the reflector onto the PowerLight aligning the reflector hole from the break away tab is aligned with the hole in stand adapter. Slide the umbrella shaft through the hole in the reflector and into the stand adapter and secure.

High quality, low price umbrella!

i use this in place of my softbox sometimes as it is not always convenient to carry around a softbox and this size umbrella distributes the light evenly over my subject.

Broken before we could use it

The shaft of the umbrella is just pressed into place. I pulled two of them apart just by removing them from the package.

Good sound umbrella

By

This umbrella is a good quality product that gives the flexibility of bounce or shoot through with the removeable black cover. I haven't tried but I would think this umbrella might not work real well for shoot through using speedilites. The silver inner lining is pretty reflective for bounce but might inhibit too much light for shoot through unless using a decent watt second strobe.

Good Value

This is a great umbrella at a good price. I thought the stem on the umbrella was a little long if you want to get it close to the subject.

Lasted a long time

By

from Cedar Rapids, IA  -  Professional

My first Photogenic 60" umbrella lasted 5 years of heavy wedding use. Finally a rib broke. This replacement is identical, I think. Only caveat was that it arrived with a slight bow to the umbrella shaft that slides into the umbrella fixture on the strobe light. The shipping box was in perfect shape and the sealed package around the umbrella was in perfect shape. I thought that perhaps Photogenic designed in the bow to compensate for the center of the umbrella not being in the center of the light beam because the shaft will always be offset a few inches above or below the light. Photogenic website shows a straight shaft. So, is this a feature? It works as well as my other one before it broke.
