Creative Light 33" Translucent Umbrella

B&H # CRU33T Mfr # 100862
No Longer Available

Probably the most basic light modifier in the photography world--the umbrella. Light reflecting off the umbrella's interior spreads out to cover a wide area. Umbrellas are easy to use, easy to store and easy to transport, and provide you with almost unlimited lighting possibilities. The Creative Light  33" Translucent Umbrella's translucent material means you can shine the light through the umbrella, rather than reflecting off of it, giving you a soft but directional light.

Approved for use with continuous hot lights up to 500 watts

Comments about Creative Light 33" Translucent Umbrella:

I bought this as a starter piece for a small studio setup, and so far it's working wonderfully.

It's small, light, and appears fairly well-built considering it was inexpensive. Comes with a nice storage sleeve for when I'm not using it. I primarily use this to bounce light, a job at which it performs wonderfully. A few tests show I can shoot (flash) through it just as well, with a small increase in speed-light power.

The only con I have for this umbrella so far is that I wish the tube were a bit longer - it's a mere 22 inches long - so I could put more distance between the umbrella and my speed-light (I can get up to 19 inches away from the bulb of an SB-600). This tends to result in the light being a little too focused beyond the umbrella, but if it is used to bounce the light instead, this is not an issue. I have found that used either way, this umbrella is enough to comfortably illuminate a 15'x15' room.

All in all, I'm quite happy with this umbrella, and intend to purchase a few more of various types from this manufacturer.
