This is a Hensel 32" (80cm) Master White Umbrella. It has a black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing is also 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 subjective as choosing a paint and brush.

Suggested use: Up to a 2 or 3 person head-and-shoulders, or 1 -2 person half-length portrait.

      Comments about Hensel Parabolic Umbrella, 32" (80cm) - White:

      I picked this up for indoor location shooting, where I would need to set up quickly, and then move to another location and do the same. I wanted something that would be more convenient than a softbox, but perform similarly.

      This is great. A little spendy for an umbrella, but it seems to be built well, and should last for quite some time.

          Comments about Hensel Parabolic Umbrella, 32" (80cm) - White:

          I have the Elinchrom Deep Octa 70 and Deep Octa 100. I was looking for something similar that I could quickly and easily set up outdoors/on-location and use speedlites. I was surprised with the quality of materials and build of this parabolic umbrella. The materials seemed of poor quality. The build also did not feel sturdy at all. Another suprise, there were black smudges on the white reflective material inside the umbrella. The plastic packaging was sealed, so i can only surmise that the smudges were at time of production/assembly of this unit. I expected much more from Hensel, being a German company, and for an "umbrella" that is over $100 in price. I requested an RMA within 30 minutes of opening the package.

          It's unfortunate. Good idea for a product, but Poor execution in materials and build.
