Photogenic Umbrella - "Eclipse Plus" Silver with Removable Black Cover - 45"

B&H # PHUEP45S Mfr # 926630
No Longer Available

This Photogenic Eclipse Plus 45" silver umbrella with black has an extra panel added during construction. The result is the elimination of the reflection of the metal frame of the umbrella in the eyes of your subject, or on highly reflective surfaces, such as chrome or brass.

The PLUS cover is a removable black with a bonded silver lining designed to produce an extra stop of light. This produces more reflected soft-light allowing placement slightly farther from your subject.

This size is perfect for a portrait of 1 - 2 people, or a small product shot.

Softens and broadens the light output of any strobe or lower wattage constant light
A silver umbrella will add specular highlights -- a little bit more "snap", than a white umbrella.
It may add 1/2 to 1 f/stop of light output, depending on the light source used.

        Comments about Photogenic Umbrella - "Eclipse Plus" Silver - 45":

        Most common complaint in reviews about other umbrellas were how cheaply they were constructed. The construction of this umbrella is excellent! Ribs are covered, good quality fabric and solid rod (not hollow). And light weight! Throws a great even light. A little more expensive than others, but worth it.

            After reading the reviews of similar umbrellas on several sites I made the decision to purchase this one. Chief complaint on the competitors was the cheap construction. Really impressed with the construction of this umbrella. Ribs are covered; not exposed. Rod is solid; not hollow. Did some quick test shots and, wow, great distribution of light.

              Comments about Photogenic Umbrella - "Eclipse Plus" Silver - 45":

              I used to think all umbrellas were pretty much the same. I never really like the quality of light they produced. For some reason these produce a much more even light. It is similar to a softbox. And of course, you can remove the black cover. Move it in closer and it become a great portrait light in the shoot through configuration.

                  These throw the best umbrella light ever. The description is not quite right though, the interior of this umbrella is white. It's the removable cover that is silver.

                    Quality is much better than comparable umbrellas. Also love that the metal arms of the umbrella are enclosed in fabric so they don't create akward catchlights. Great umbrella!

                    I was really pleased with the ease of use on this product. It does seem a little bulky for it's own good, that is to say that the velcro closure doesn't hold very well without the plstic sleeve the umbrella is shipped in.

                    Wanted larger umbrellas to use for studio lighting or for out door larger groups.Just got them [...] so tried out right away. They were used fairly close to subject, I did like the even lighting but not crazy about the odd catchlights.I thought since the spokes were covered up they would be less obvious. Will do more testing later.

                      makes the light very strong, yet at the same time soft... its perfect for product photography.

                      its very heavy and my tota lites fall over when i attach it tho, so i have to tape it on or wrap the cord around the bottom of the umbrella.
