The umbrella is the basic light modifier for photographers--easy to use and transport, it spreads light over a wide area. The Elinchrom Gold Umbrella (41") has a gold-colored metallic interior which provides a warm, somewhat direct light that's especially effective for portraits, beauty and fashion. The diameter is 41" (105 cm). A protective sleeve for transporting the umbrella is included. The 7mm shaft fits EL Compacts and heads with centered umbrella support.
