The Lastolite 8-in-1 Umbrella is a unique 41" diameter accessory that allows you to bounce your light source in the traditional way with the black backing on or use it like a softbox by pumping the light through it with the backing off. But that's just the beginning.
The flip side of the backing is reflective silver. Remove the white interior for maximum output or long throw applications. An included diffuser can be stretched over the open umbrella for an even stronger softbox look. Finally, an additional black backing features a section held on by touch-fasteners that when removed, reveals a square-masked section of the umbrella which creates ideal catchlights for products and reflective objects. The 8-in-1 Umbrella can be used with studio or portable flash heads and with shoe-mount flashes with the appropriate adapter.
