Lastolite Umbrella - All-In-One - Silver, White, Translucent, 40" (1m)

B&H # LAUAIO45 Mfr # LL LU4537
No Longer Available

This is a Lastolite All-in-One 40" Umbrella. It starts out as a translucent umbrella, which may be used as a makeshift softbox, for aiming a light through.

The white insert may be added to transform the umbrella into a bounce umbrella, to soften the light in use more efficiently.

The silver insert is also used to bounce the light, but it adds a specular, or harder quality to the light that falls on the subject.

Use this size umbrella for headshots, or 3/4-length portraits, or small product setups.

          Nice umbrella! Really versatile and well made. I have a couple of cheap shoot-throughs. Don't bother with them. This is a nice addition to the bag, and comes with it's own case to keep the material from getting tangled up with other things in the bag of umbrellas and stands.

            Lastolite's ezyboxes are very solid and well build; I really like them a lot.

            However, All-In-One umbrella is totally opposite. Frames are very thin (even thinner than my real umbrella). It broke since the day I get it.

            Next time, I'll buy Silver, White, Translucent umbrellas separately so that I don't have to throw away all if one breaks. Beside, umbrellas won't take up a lot of space when they are folded.

              I use this both as reflective and shoot through and am glad to have one tool to do both things. The umbrella is well made and comes with a nice case

                I own 4 different kinds of umbrellas, all different brands. this is the one I like the most. so far, has been very handy, as I don't have to pick what kind to bring to my shoot location, this one does it all.
