Most Liked Positive Review

 

Works well and compact

My only complaint is that the stem is hexagonal and was larger than the hole on my ProMaster universal swivel head. I solved that with a drill.

It's grey not silver

Portrait photography on the move. This collapsible umbrella is not silver but grey. It's reflectance power is very poor. It doesn't correspond to your add. I never use it. My money was wasted !

Perfect

Nice and small for portability and a good alternative to the reflective/shoot through version

Great product helps budding strobist!

By

The reflective surface and my Speedlight Flash produces diffuse light source near to daylight. They are very collapsable and portable. They are a cut above imported umbrellas for a very affordable price.

Confused about this one

By

from Dallas, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

If you look at the picture of this umbrella model #2002 on [@], you'll see that the reflective side of the umbrella has 4 panels of specular silver material and three panels of satin white material. [...] Just like what the others have said: it's more like a gray card than a soft silver. I did not get what was advertised, unless there are two models of the same manufacturer part #2002, one that Westcott makes and the other that Adorama makes (but with Westcott's name on the product). I'm confused. To be fair, the picture on Adorama.com did show a solid grayish fabric, but I figured the photo was a mistake since the manufacturer part # was the same. Goes to show, one has to inquiry about every detail. Other than this umbrella, everything else I bought from Adorama was what I expected.

Convenient size but not well made

By

from Brookline, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this because it's short when collapsed, but it's held open by a cheap plastic spring loaded clip that was broken when I received it. In general, it's not robust and I doubt it would last very long even with careful use. It's grey rather than silver, as other reviews have noted. I returned it because of the defective clip (and Adorama made that very easy -- thank you!). I ended up with an umbrella that costs twice as much but is much better built.

Inexpensive, but...

By

from Delray Beach, FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The plastic catch to hold the umbrella open was defective on mine. I was reluctant to go through the hassle of a return, so I'm using a clamp! Probably will upgrade for my next one.

Works as advertised

By

from Albuquerque, NM  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is my first umbrella and it worked very well for portraits. I'll be adding another Westcott 43" umbrella to my kit soon.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DANIEL S  I needed a fairly large silver umbrella that would fold down small. This does just that and the shaft is sturdy too. The soft silver interior is closer to gray than "soft silver", but it still reflects nicely. I got the shoot-thru version too.
W. W  Does this unit actually have a black light-blocking outside cover? Is it removable?
BARBARA H  The black part is non-removable and the reflective inside is alot more reflective than the convertible version(2021)
