Lastolite 40" Umbrella (Silver)

Product Highlights
  • Black Backing

This is a Lastolite 40" Umbrella (Silver). 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.

      Comments about Lastolite 40" Umbrella (Silver):

      It's a very good umbrella specially for the price, the only problem I had was it won't fit to elinchromes strobes,and I had to get some attachment for it,if you use elinchrom light stands,they already have attachment for it,it just won't be in the center

        Comments about Lastolite 40" Umbrella (Silver):

        This was my first umbrella. I really like it, especially the fact that it folds up just like a regular umbrella and has its own little carrying case. I actually prefer the control I can achieve with the umbrella than the softbox, but I can see the need for both on location, as well as reflector scrims. All are required because every situation and hour of day are different.

        The umbrella here was very value priced and was of high quality. I blinded myself several times while testing it out. What a rush!
        I would prefer a little stud on the staight pole so as to lock the umbrella in place in case you have it at a lower angle, but in using it that way it didn't slide around too much.

        Great product. I would buy this brand again, and probably will get a gold one.
