Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit

B&H # IMDFUMK Mfr # DFUMK
You Pay: $98.95

When using this kit with the Nikon SB-900/910, an additional adjustable "universal shoe mount" is required.

Product Highlights
  • 2x Impact 32" Umbrellas
  • 2x Shoe Mount Bracket
  • 2x Light Stands

This is an Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit. It includes 2- Impact 32" White umbrellas with removable black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. 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 light box.

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. Each umbrella is perfect for a 1 person head shot, or 3x4 ft product setup.

Each of the two Impact brand umbrella brackets fit on top of almost any light stand, has different size stud adapters for various grip clamps, includes a cold shoe mount for your shoe-mount flash. It swivels, tilts, locks into place, and accepts almost any small to medium sized umbrella.

The Impact brand light stands are black, air-cushioned, and rise to a maximum height of 8' (2.4 m).

Impact brand light stands are well-known for quality at a low price.
An air cushioned light stand protects equipment and fingers from injury if you forget to tighten the stand section locks.

Note:Light stand and umbrella specifications may vary according to availability.

    Let me start off by saying that this kit is an unbeatable value. The options that can come out of this are about endless. If you're an aspiring Strobist on a budget (like me), this kit was put together for you.

    Lightstands: 3.5/5
    I put a Vivitar 285HV, a Quantum Radio Slave II Receiver, and the umbrella on the lightstands. Thus there's a reasonable amount of weight on there. The stands do the job, but they're not outstanding. When I adjust the power, or switch something on/off, the stand and everything on it will be wobbling for a few seconds afterwards. FULLY extended will be even more wobbly. But they do the job. The air cushioning sure is nice to have for forgetful people like me!

    Umbrella Brackets: 4.5/5
    Everything about the bracket is extremely sturdy. There's no give or take anywhere with the bracket. The only thing I don't like is that you can't tilt the umbrella itself; thus the umbrella is always pointed straight outwards. You can only adjust the tilt of the flash.

    Umbrellas: 3/5
    The umbrellas are silvery reflector umbrellas. They don't do a very good job as shoot-through, because they're too diffused. They do a great job as reflector umbrellas, though. The removeable black backing works well. The actual construction of the umbrellas are weak. Very weak. The metal parts holding up the cloth are hollow and very thin metal, so it bends very easily. I already have one bent umbrella; luckily it still works how it should. I also wish the long beam was longer.

    If you're on a budget, click "add to cart" right now, because this kit was made for you! If money isn't a factor, another product may suit you better.

    This achieves what it advertises with some minor problems. First off, I realize this is not "high end" equipment and is directed at someone looking to save money. With this in mind the Impact kit is good enough. I mount Canon 580EXii flashes on the brackets and bounce the light off the umbrellas triggered wirelessly. Works well enough, but be aware of a few things:

    1. The metal piece to mount the flash on will not fit 580's (probably any canon flash for that matter) unless forced-- and could damage the rubber at the base. My solution was to use the plastic mounts included with the the flashes

    2. When using them outside with the umbrellas attached witht he slightest wind and they WILL blow over. Sand bags or some kind of weight (5-10lbs) is a must for outdoor use.

    3. Every time I screw anything to secure the bracket to the stand, and bracket to the the umbrella-- the screw chews into the metal. I put gaffers tape on the metal thats getting messed. Might make the Impact set last a little longer. Kind of a minor point, but I'm obsessive about keeping things neat and functional, and chewed up metal is not acceptable.

    A pretty basic stand + clamp + umbrella kit. Does what you would expect. Umbrellas can act as shoot-through or reflectors.

      Comments about Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit:

      I got this as part of a Canon flash kit. The umbrellas and stands are cheaply made but work great. The flash/umbrella mounts are surprisingly well made. All in all it's great little kit that you don't feel is to precious to actually get out and use.

          Comments about Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit:

          THE STANDS ARE STURDY. THE MOUNTS ARE STRONG. THE FLASH MOUNTS ARE A LITTLE TEDIOUS TO GET THE FLASH LOCKED INTO BUT ONCE THEY ARE IN THEY ARE SECURE. THE ONE TINY SCREW TO LOCK THEM IN COULD BE DONE DIFFERENTLY. I HAVENT SEEN OR USED ANY HIGH END STUFF SO THIS IS ALL I KNOW. I HAVE THE NIKON SB800 FLASHES AND THEY FEEL SECURE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A BETETER WAY TO LOCK THEM IN. ANYWAYS... THE UMBRELLAS LOCK IN SECURELY ALSO. I JUST CHOSE UMBRELLAS OVER SOFT BOXES BECAUSE THIS WAS A KIT. ONE DAY SOFT BOXES ARE THE BEST, THE NEXT... AND THE GENERAL CONSENSUS IS WHEN ASKING FOR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT IS... "WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO BE DOING?" NO CLEAR BEST OF ANYTHING IN PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT. BUY THIS. IT WILL HOLD YOUR FLASH AND GIVE YOU GOOD LIGHT. OTHERWISE... BRING YOUR CHECKBOOK AND MAKE YOUR OWN TRIPOD, UMBRELLA, FLASHMOUNT KIT.

Lo compré con el bolso que sugiere B&H y es ideal para transporte y almacenamiento. También compré un paraguas un poco mayor al del kit para tener otra opción de iluminación con mayor aptitud.

                        I bought this set on the fly. i needed new gear quick and cheap. i got it. the set has lasted me 2 years of use, at least twice a week (sometimes more, sometimes less)on location. After a while the light stand was more difficult to extend, but still did the job. the umbrellas fell apart rather easily, once the 1 stand of thread fell off the arms. But in all honesty, 2 years did the trick. Stands arnt strong enough to hold a white lighting or alien bee with a soft box. but for use with a speedlight, its pretty good

                        you gotta start somewhere. this kit is a geared towards those of us who are new to flash photography and want to get our feet wet without spending too much cash.

                        all the parts of this kit work exactly as they are supposed to, they're just a bit flimsy and should be handled as such.

                        the stands are a good height and the brackets are versitile.

                        handle with care!

                        Works well indoors, nothing that bad or great they do the job. Build is weak.

                        They will tolerate no abuse, overtightening, or punishment. I pinched one stand against a cabinet slightly with an office chair and it snapped the plastic mount at the bottom that holds the three tripod legs on. Not enough meat in the left over pieces to rig a fastener. Now trash can material. But they did not cost 400 $ either. You get what you pay for.

                        Comments about Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit:

                        I just started learning about flash photography so I wanted a cheap kit.

                        So far the stands and umbrellas do what they are suppose to do and I am able to achieve the results I am looking for when diffusing or bouncing flash.

                        I received the kit with one light stand broken (as have many others per the reviews I've read), but B&H quickly replaced it with a new one so I am satisfied.

                        The bracket mounts could definitely be better. I might suggest getting the impact light stands with a different umbrella/shoe bracket.

                          It's not a high end professional kit but it's light, easy to use and does the job no problem. The sale on this kit came at a good time as I was taking a location lighting course at our local college and this is what we learned to use extensively. If I ever need more I will surely get this set again.

                            Easy and fast to setup. Umbrellas a little smaller than expected. Otherwise a good product when cash is limited.

                            It works but the build quality of the stands is super cheap. They where both broken on arrival.

                            This was exactlly as expected product.
                            Once again for price performance and quality are there.
