Westcott 60" White Satin Umbrella with Removable Black Cover

You Pay: $41.10

This is a 60" White Satin Umbrella with Removal Black Cover. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.

Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.

Westcott umbrellas are measured tip to tip across the arch of the umbrella.

Westcott umbrellas are rated safe for use with hot lights up to 1000 Watts.
This size is perfect for a 3 person full length shot, or a 4x8 size still-life setup.

I bought this large umbrella to be able to photograph groups (maybe 2-4 persons) and this one does it really well. I only had a small umbrella which was only good enough for one person. This one covers quite a large area and I absolutely love it. I´ve used it outside and inside and I absolutely love the results. It gives a smooth soft lighting and the build quality is quite good. Very good umbrella. I haven´t discovered any downside yet.

I use this with 400 dlite. The black removable cover is good and the umbrella look strong enough. But my bad luck, first time when I received it was broken by UPS. I returned that. The next one I got had one of support connection broken. I use it as it is. I can live with that until the Octo.

                  B & H helped me pick this out. It's my very first umbrella that I've used. I had my first boudoir shoot and used it with my new canon 600 flash and it was amazing! Can't wait for my next session.

                      I'm just getting started building a budget/hobby studio and am using two of these umbrellas with a SB600 and a SB700. I must admit I was surprised of the quality. In my opinion they are made well and get the job done. Essentially you're getting two light modifiers in one, because you can remove the black cover and use as a shoot through. Definitely worth the price if your on a strict budget.

                        I've been through several cheaper umbrellas in the past. I'm a wyoming photographer and if you've ever been to wyoming before you know its windy. So many of the umbrellas in the past have fell over and the little metal ribs that hold out the umbrella bend over and eventually break. this umbrella uses fiberglass ribs, and is 100x more durable. Great umbrella for the money, do yourself a favor and choose these if your in the market for an umbrella

                          I use the Westcott umbrellas for studio as well as location work. The color balance is excellent! The white satin umbrellas can be feathered for just the right lighting ratio for beautiful portraits every time! You can tell a good product by its longevity. Westcott products have always served me well and hold up well over time.

                          Comments about Westcott 60" White Satin Umbrella with Removable Black Cover:

                          I bought this item because I felt that the 32 inch umbrellas that I had were not producing the quality of light (softness) that I was after. The small ones I have were really cheap and it shows when I compared to this Westcott. The reflective material and craftmanship is clearly a step above in quality. If I could fit a 7 foot umbrella in my studio I would have bought that instead but I can't. I think this size is a good compromise plus the fact that it's more compact makes it easier to handle. It's heavier than I thought so a sturdy light stand is a must. I haven't taken the black cover off yet so I can't comment on that except for the fact that it's not really opaque. I other words, it lets more light through than I thought it would. I intend to use it as bounce only.

                          Sturdy enough and gets the job done. Price makes it more easily replaceable.

                            Nice and sturdy. Removable black side. Great umbrella for the cash. A little bulky.
