This lamp is not for use with dimmers, electronic timers, photocells, totally enclosed fixtures, motion/occupancy sensors, or where directly exposed to water.
Impact Umbrella - Beaded Silver - 43"
This is a 43" umbrella with a beaded silver reflective surface. It will intensify and slightly soften the light output of a strobe light fixture.
Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. 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 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.
Softens and broadens the light output of any strobe of medium wattage
