What item is right for you?

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 43" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in mid-length portraits for one or two persons.

Open Diameter 43" (109 cm)

    Can't go wrong

    You can't go wrong with this shoot through umbrella. I am a portrait photographer and needed an umbrella that would give me a nice soft light that maintained true skin tone. Read complete review

    You can't go wrong with this shoot through umbrella. I am a portrait photographer and needed an umbrella that would give me a nice soft light that maintained true skin tone.

    43" - big enough to light a whole body. Great soft light at short distances from model. Push back for a more contrast look.

    Durable for the price. Secure snap to open and close.

    Every portrait photographer should have one of these umbrellas.

    pretty cheap...you get what you pay for

    When I got this out of the box and opened it, one of the caps came off! I had to SEW the cap back on. Feels and act pretty cheap.

    on the other hand, it does what it is supposed to be. I would have rather spend a little more money getting some other umbrellas...

      Comments about Impact White Translucent Umbrella (43"):

      I had purchased one of these last year and after doing some head shots I realized I needed another. Since using this unbrella, the photos have turned out even better than expected by just adding one more umbrella.

          All umbrellas do the same thing- you get concerned about if it's going to last. I feel this is right in the middle. Not cheaply made but they didn't make it as strong as say a golf umbrella. Should last as long as it's used indoors. Don't think i'd take this out in the wind.

          I use different sizes of the Impact white translucent umbrellas, which have worked well in product photography as well as in portraiture work giving me a wide soft light when connected to my Photogenetic 320 lights. The umbrella has also been a great tool to diffuse the suns bright rays as well as bouncing light off to add the diffused light to fill the dark shadow with just enough light to give me the light ratio that I'm looking to capture.

              These came in an Impact lighting kit I ordered. I had already ordered a couple of black/white umbrellas because I wasn't sure how these translucent models would do after looking them up and realizing they were just under $[$]each purchased separately. I am pleasantly surprised with their build quality and performance! They work great as shoot through and bounce umbrellas. This is a great product! I use them with my my Impact VSD160 Moonlights.

                Great price, great color. I wouldn't use outside tho. Umbrella bends and brokes very easily if even blown over from a morderate height.

                    I keep one of these in my tripod bag. It is small enough to fit nicely with my other equipment yet when deployed gives me a great backdrop or diffuser (depending on my mood)when I am shooting out in nature.

                              I am just starting to play with some off camera light sources, the Nikon system makes it easy to play around without having to invest in a lot of gear to learn. I have found that shooting through an umbrella provides the most consistent soft and natural looking light. This one does the trick. Honestly there is nothing amazing or bad about it. it does its job, which is to soften /broaden the light.

                                  I have a favorite soft box that is a pain to set up and break down. I love to use it on location but it just takes too long to put together. I need to invest in a pop-up version but just invested a large amount of money in other more necessary gear. This umbrella is perfect to hold me over. It gives beautiful, soft light but it light, compact, and takes 3 seconds to set up.
                                  Great value!
