Product Highlights
  • True Parabolic Shape
  • Adjustable Focus
  • Optional Front Diffusers
  • Padded Storage Bag

Especially popular with fashion shooters, the Profoto Giant Parabolic Reflector is a unique light shaper that is frequently called an umbrella but it is quite a different thing. A parabolic umbrella has many more support spokes to make the source truly round, which works in conjunction with the key design factor of depth. Together they render light output which has a wrap around quality due to its large diameter but is also crisp thanks its unique focal point.

More like a 6' (180 cm) beam of light as compared to an umbrella's bounced light, the focus can be adjusted for harder or softer output while containing spill, by swapping out the center pole to locate the flash closer or further away from the back of the reflector. Optional 1/3 and 1 stop front diffusers allow you to produce soft light comparable to an Octabox if desired.

  • Creates a giant light source

    Comments about Profoto Giant Parabolic Reflector, Silver - 6' (180 cm):

    I use this modifier for fashion and editorial work. Simply put, it is an amazing and versatile modifier for studio and location work. The quality is superb as is to be expected from Profoto. The material of the unit is thicker than expected and is over-built throughout with attention to stress points. The mod comes with a very well made case for transport. Combined with a wind-up stand this is perfectly usable in breezy locations. My go to lighting.

    Comments about Profoto Giant Parabolic Reflector, Silver - 6' (180 cm):

    Being (so far) the only fashion/commercial photographer this side of the Alps that owns the 6' Giant I must admit to being discretely in love with it. It performs extremely well in any situation, be it shooting for Playboy in the studio or doing outdoor fashion editorials. THIS IS THE LIGHT SHAPING TOOL YOU HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR ALL THIS TIME! Amazing wrap-around light if you put it 6' or even a bit further from the subject.
    A word of advice though - we are talking about the 20-section Giant "Reflector", not the 10-section umbrella-style Giant (not called Reflector by Profoto), which is notably cheaper and gives a different shape of light.
