Well made, sturdy, perfect size for me

I shoot real estate daily. For those rooms where there isn't a nuetral color wall/ceiling or they are far away, the 45 inch umbrellas come in very handy. A pair of them at a couple of different angles can help with a soft light and quite mild shadows. These umbrellas are well made and low cost.

Nice consistant umbrella

By

from Lafayette, LA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This umbrella is as sturdy as the price implies. I have two and use them as shoot through and as bounce. It's very lightweight and not very entrussive to set up.

Great Satin White Shoot thru Umbrella

By

from The Colony, Tx.  -  Photo Enthusiast

Looked around for a normal standard size umbrella every one I found, said they will not take bulbs higher than 500 watts. Higher watt bulbs can and will dis-color the umbrella ! This Westcott Satin White umbrella can take up to 1000 watts ! So if you use continious lights or a lot of strobe flashes, this should stay Optical Satin White. I take care of my photo gear, and this umbrella is going strong, no problems. I will get more !

Be careful

By

from Fairhope, AL  -  Pro Photographer

This is a good light weight, low cost umbrella. The very first time I used it outside, however, I didn't weight the base of my lightstand and the wind took it down immediately. The umbrella frame was bent, but I was able to bend it back. The umbrella is still serviceable and works well. My warning is just to be sure you place something HEAVY on the base of the lightstand before you walk away.

Great Value

By

from Kentucky  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Extremely good quality umbrella and good size for most of the work I do with portraits. I use mostly speedlights aka strobist setup for my work, so I really do not need an umbrella much larger than this. Great fabric, seems pretty durable, the frame looks pretty durable as well. I see me using this for a long time. Also, one small detail that's often overlooked, but can be very important for protecting your umbrella is the case or cover it came with. It's only a clear vinyl cover, but it's thick enough to be durable and it protects the umbrella from dirt and keeps it from snagging on other objects. For that reason plus the overall quality of the umbrella, Westcott has just obtained another loyal customer. The 28" Apollo Softbox is next!
