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.

This kit will augment any flash, strobe heads or small tungsten-halogen light heads (up to 500 watts) that have umbrella receptors. The light stands are sturdy and reliable, to their maximum height of 8 ft. A case with handle is provided for ease of storage and transport.

Comments about Photoflex Umbrella Kit:

good, solid stands with a wide footprint plus they are black

umbrellas are very well made, big enough to be useful and convertible.

bag is big enough to store the whole kit.

as a strobist kit, this is a bit over the top but then, the stands are plenty solid to hold a monolight and large sotbox should one move up to that.

Excellent Product

Comments about Photoflex Umbrella Kit:

This is a fantastic product! I bought it in person at the B&H store in Manhattan, and compared the build quality to others that were more more expensive, and could not believe the quality and value in the Photoflex product for the money.

The umbrellas are also very well built, and work wonderfully!

Highly recommended!

Excellent Starter Kit

By Rob

from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada

Comments about Photoflex Umbrella Kit:

I purchased this kit in December 2007 and it is a very goodstarter kit, I use it with my 2 SB-600 flashes and it worksquite well. The light stands are good quality and theumbrellas are very good. Not the lightest (weight wise) kitone could get but still a very good bargain considering whatsome of the local shops (to me) want for a similar kit.White umbrellas my be preferable to some but for usingflashes as strobes silver gives a better kickback.
