What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

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.

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.

The product description says "vinyl black backing" but it's not the same vinyl backing as heavy duty umbrella sold by Hensel. It's same construction as flimsy $20 umbrella but only slightly bigger size (and much higher price). They may get away with this quality since there aren't many options for 7mm shaft umbrellas, but Photek and Lastolite have better options. I'm returning mine.

        Comments about 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.

                      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.

                      The light it creates is, well, like any other small silver umbrella. The effect is similar to beauty dish. THat much is very nice. But the latch that holds the umbrella stay open is easy to break. Mine wouldn't stay open after a couple of light use. Also, the shaft is flimsy and can easily get warped.

                          The product description says "vinyl black backing" but it's not the same vinyl backing as heavy duty umbrella sold by Hensel. It's same construction as flimsy $20 umbrella but only slightly bigger size (and much higher price). They may get away with this quality since there aren't many options for 7mm shaft umbrellas, but Photek and Lastolite have better options. I'm returning mine.

                              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.

                              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.

                                    It's silver, and an umbrella... what's not to love? I do wish it had a velcro tab or snap to close it tightly so that it would fit more easily into the provided sleeve - but other than that, it does the job!
