About Westcott

Sharing My Opinion

Westcott umbrellas seem to be sturdier and better built than its competitors, and umbrellas are more economical than softboxes. The shaft is stronger and I like the black coating over the shaft. They are professional looking and a good value for the price. I especially like the provision of the black cover used to reduce light spill. I can remove it, and cover the open end with a black material, using the umbrella as a shoot-through, and convert it into a makeshift softbox. Westcott umbrellas...

Westcott umbrellas seem durable, easy to use and professional. I use them because they separate the light with an even, soft, wide coverage over the subject, perfect for wedding, or studio portraits; and, they are great tools for controlling where and how your light is contained and distributed in a closed space, like softboxes, but without the hefty price tag.

The material of both the umbrella and the cover feels and looks very nice; pro quality look. This one is a great size for one to three people and it is easy to carry, set up, and break down.

Good dual purpose umbrealla

By

from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is a nice umbrella giving you the option to use it either as a shoot-through or as a reflector umbrella. This is a nice feature giving me options for the type of lighting I want for different shoots.

Wish I'd read the 60" version reviews

By

from Hillsboro, OR  -  Photo Enthusiast

Without any included instructions, it took me a sec to figure out how to get the black cover off...you have to very gently pull off each silver tip on the outside edge and the black cover comes with the tip...then slides off the main staff at the top. Was very disappointed that the diameter is 40", not 45". There's a review on the 60" product that mentions that the measurement is along the arc, not the opened diameter. Had I known, I'd have ordered the 60" ones.

Good choice

By

from Los Angeles  -  Casual Photographer

Happy with it so far. Softens light well. The rod that is meant to be put into an umbrella adapter is good quality (seems solid). Don't tighten too much though. Umbrella seems of decent quality for the price. There are cheaper ones available (and this one seems to be made in the same place as those) but this one has been fairly reliable and decently well made so far. For the price, I recommend it.

Excellent umbrellas

from White Haven, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Good quality umbrellas at a reasonable cost. The black outer umbrella covering comes off easily and installs easily. The quality is great. The protective plastic "bags" are extremely useful during storage.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can this umbrella be used with a Nikon SB-700 or is it too big for the SB-700? Thanks.
ERIC C  Yes, you can!
Shopper  what is the size when this is folded down and how much does it weigh?
FRANK C  If you store it in the plastic sleeve that it comes in it measures 32" by 3" and weights just a few ounces. This is a good entry level umbrella. If you want to disgard the plastic sleeve it measures 29" by as tight as you can compress it.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DANIEL S  Looking for an inexpensive product to venture into portrait photography and this fit the bill. Nice build, versatile, and good quality.
