Typical Wescott quality

Typical great Wescott quality. I especially like the fiberglass spokes. One thing I have learned in using umbrellas is that you don't have to crank down on the knob that secures the shaft. Just having it slightly snug is enough to prevent the umbrella from moving in the mounting hole. Very few umbrellas are made with a solid shaft and therefor the shaft can be crushed by over tightening on expensive or cheap umbrellas. This umbrella is huge!

However, it can be used in a residence with typical 8 foot ceilings of you can clear the furniture. I use it with a Linco Flora light bank with six 85w daylight tubes providing a real 510w of power, equal to maybe 2000w of tungsten light. Makes a wonderful soft and broad light.

Biggest Umbrella

Huge umbrella! Lots of difused light on the cheap. Definitely get it with sock to diffuse light even more. Fantastic tool for the money!

Great, and big, umbrella

By

from Kansas City  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This thing is big. I'm currently working with 8' ceilings, but I'm still happy with this. It'd be ideal to have 10' or 12' ceilings so I can raise the light up a bit. I would definitely recommend you get the big shower cap/diffuser to go with this - otherwise you're not going to be getting light out of the full 7' (it'll be more in the center where the strobe is hitting the umbrella). Here is the diffuser at Adorama: http://www.adorama.com/WE4631D.html (Westcott SKU# 4631D).

Let there be light!

Excellent light modification. It really covers a large area. The silver puts a little snap into it which I like. I seems well made.

Just make sure you anchor your light stand somehow, I use weights, the 7' umbrella makes a great sail!

Screaming Deal!

By

from Seattle-the Emerald City  -  Semi-Professional

This is great umbrella for the price. It works fine in the studio and in the field if needed. It huge and bulky but what seven foot umbrella wouldn't be? If you were able to get the three piece deal from Adorama, you got a super deal. Their customer service is exceptional. One of the three arrived damaged and they exchanged it with no fuss and quickly-even during the holiday sseason!

It's not a deal, more of a steal!

By

from Seattle-the Emerald City  -  Semi-Professional

This is an incredible deal. Three huge umbrellas for under $200.00. They work great, provide such a good even light and, as if I didn't mention before, they're cheap. Since these arrived I have put them to good use. Nice work Adorama and Westcott.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  How much is the diffuser for this parabolic umbrella? thank you :)
ED F  $29.90 - SKU: WE4631D MFR: 4631D
William E  Will you need more than 1 speed light ?
KERRY S  The number of speed lights used depends on the situation, other equipment used (camera and settings, lens, speed light output, etc.), and photographers style/objective. This is a fairly efficient modifier with a sliver reflective surface and no light absorptive covering. As the typical shot for this sort if modifier is short distance one good quality speed light should do it. That being said, my preference is to use two or three speed lights at lower power because it is easier on the equipment to stress it less, with perhaps (very) slight improvement in uniformity since a single light cannot be placed in the center of the reflector. Basically I use several because I have them rather than out of necessity.
