Impact Umbrella - White - 32"

This is an Impact 32" White Reflective Umbrella. 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.

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.

Suggested use: 1 or 2 person head-and-shoulders shot.

        Exactly what I expected it to be. It seems strudy and well made, no problems with it. Use it to shoot through (like a softbox) or turn it around backwards to bounce light. It is small, so it works best for one or two people portrait set ups.

        Adequate for Limited Use

        Used for portraits and wedding formals, not the best construction but good enough for my limited use. I've already had the tips come apart a couple of times but fortunately they are easily...Read complete review

          This is just your standard white shoot-through umbrella. It's well built, works as it should, and the price is right.

                              used this umbrella for a few weeks now with a nikon sb800 and it does exactly what you want it to.
                              its got a solid metal plug in the end so your umbrella holder wont crush the shaft, and ive used it as an actual umbrella in a pinch

                                works great with my halogen light. I set it up in front of my light and it creates a soft light.

                                    I have a small studio set up in my office to record web videos. The umbrellas I purchased last year were way too big for this space. I ordered these 32" ones from BH and they are just what I needed. [...] So far, so good. They seem pretty sturdy and I LOVE them! [...]

                                                  This is a great little umbrella that does what it needs to for an awesome price. I got two and am thinking on getting other sizes and styles of Impact umbrellas for the studio.

                                                    Its a umbrella. It does what its supposed to do. Dont tighten down on the shaft though, it will not take it. Cant beat the price.

                                                        Exactly what I expected it to be. It seems strudy and well made, no problems with it. Use it to shoot through (like a softbox) or turn it around backwards to bounce light. It is small, so it works best for one or two people portrait set ups.

                                                            Used for portraits and wedding formals, not the best construction but good enough for my limited use. I've already had the tips come apart a couple of times but fortunately they are easily reattached.
