Elinchrom Umbrella - 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. This 33" translucent umbrella 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 subjecetive as choosing a paint and brush.

The material is neutral and allows about 50% transmission.

This size is perfect for a 1-2 person head shot, or a 3x5 ft product setup.

        Comments about Elinchrom Umbrella - Translucent - 33":

        I use this 33' version outdoors for head shots and half-body portraits as it will not cover a whole body under day light conditions. It takes a lot of hits and wind blows outside, but remains strong. The metal hardware can be bent back to its original position after each incident. It lasts longer than I thought was reasonable to expect.

              Great shoot through umbrella that fits perfectly in the Quadra Ranger case and does a good job softening light.

                  Home studio using (2) SB-800 flashes for portraits & on the move wedding shots. You can set up these umbrellas quickly and get into tight areas without the hassle of a large umbrella poking someone in the eye.

                      I bought the translucent umbrella because I wanted a quick way to diffuse light without having to put together a cumbersome soft box. The Elinchrom 33" umbrella works great for that purpose, and it's easy to use.

                      Comments about Elinchrom Umbrella - Translucent - 33":

                      Most of the 3rd party umbrellas have shafts that are a bit too big to fit in the Elinchrom umbrella shafts built into the light units. This one is an exact fit, and comes with a matching white sleeve. Umbrellas are fragile to begin with (these are no different than a regular rain umbrella in that regard), and are immediately destroyed if the light tips, which is far more likely in a breeze with an umbrella anyway. Either have extras on hand for the inevitable, or have plenty of counterweights for the stand.

                      Along with a silver foil-backed opaque umbrella, this is a standard accessory for my lights. I use it for portraits for the second light on the subject, and works when I need something faster to erect than a softbox, yet with gentler diffusion than a foil-backed umbrella. For that reason, it's a favorite on location, despite the extra risk.
