Impact Umbrella - White Translucent (33")

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.

This Impact 33" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in head-and-shoulders portraits for one or two persons.

    So normally at this price I am expecting junk cause these things start at double the price and go up at most small camera outfits. This does the job it's supposed to do, and can't complain about the construction. It is a lightweight umbrella. If you are going to try to bend it, then it bends end of story, light weight get it. I would not call it flimsy by a long shot. Overall impression, yeah I would buy this again in a heartbeat, and it takes nice soft shots with my Nikon speed-lights, and handles the warmth from my Ari Tungstens (from not too close) just fine.

    This came as part of a kit. It seems pretty cheap. It uses soft plastic bits to hold the umbrella's cloth onto the frame. It seems like in this case, a more sturdy version from a reliable brand might not be all that much more expensive, but as an add on to a kit, it seems fine.

    Adequate for occasional use. These umbrellas are not heavy duty. They are a bargain if you handle things carefully.

      Comments about Impact White Translucent Umbrella (33"):

      Finally! An umbrella that works great, fits in my case and doesn't pull my light down. It was cheap too! Well done Impact. This umbrella works like a soft box to even out the light and make your interview subjects look great. I had used a much larger version of this type of umbrella for years with my Lowel light kit. Each light is 500 watts and the umbrella would work great. The problem was it was too big to put in the carrying case and too heavy for the light to stay in the correct position. The large umbrella would always pull the light down to point at the floor. This new Impact umbrella works to defuse the light just as well as the larger version, but with the added benefit of working better with my Lowel light kit. B&H sent it right away and I had it in time for my next shoot. It was so affordable I'm going to buy another for the second light. Thank you B&H and Impact!

          No it's not a five hundred dollar umbrella but it's light and easily handled on a monopod in my off hand. If it breaks I get a second one.

          I usually don't use umbrellas to defuse my lighting, but upon trying this product I now have a different opinion on it. The umbrella really defuses the light and gives me better control of my lighting. The umbrella is well made, very nicely priced. I will be using them in my studio lighting alot more I like. Thanks!!

            This is a great umbrella. It's on the smaller side, but my studio space is fairly limited, so that works for me, and you can't beat the price. I have only used this as a shoot through, not a reflector, so all my comments will be based on shoot through. I own three of these and in tests all three are very consistent. I have used them with a 400ws strobe, a Nikon SB-600, and a Vivitar SF-3000. With all three flashes I got nice, even, soft light. As with any umbrella they are easy to use and easy to store.

                I gave this umbrella five stars for the quality. It is very well made.
                However I would rather go with a white REFLECTIVE umbrella as opposed to TRANSLUCENT because there is a hot spot in the center when shooting through the umbrella. A reflective umbrella also has a hotspot if you shoot through it, but it's a lot more diffused than a translucent umbrella.

                      The umbrellas are themselves fine, but were combined with the light stands in a kit- unfortunately they don't fit the lights without removing the reflector. I ended up rigging a different support for the umbrellas but would rather not have needed an extra trip to the hardware store to retrofit.

                        This product opens and locks easily and folds up and closes back in its sleeve cover fairly quick. This product is light weight and great for diffusing light with my flash. I would recommend this product to anyone on a budget and needing a medium size umbrella. I have only used this product in a studio setting have not tried outdoors yet due to our weather in my area.

                          I'm using this for bird and squirrel "portraits" on the back deck. Just the right size. Not super durable but with careful use should last just fine.
