Overview

If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick an Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella. Each of the 3 versions has its attributes and benefits, so which should you choose? Well, now you don't have to; this Impact 7' Parabolic 3 Umbrella Kit has them all - white interior with black backing, silver interior with black backing and white translucent.

What all of them have in common is that they're really huge, broad light sources that wrap light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. Due to the special shape of the umbrellas there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors.

7' Parabolic Umbrella (White/Black)

The fixed black backing on the white/black version ensures that all of the light output is on your subject instead of through the umbrella. You can also vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer look or for longer throw capability.

7' Parabolic Umbrella (Silver)

The silver interior version provides a more specular and contrasty look than the white umbrella. Again, you can also vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer light. This silver version is ideal for throwing the light over a long distance. Two of them, for instance could light an entire auditorium or a large graduating class.

7' Parabolic Umbrella (White Diffusion)

The white translucent version of this umbrella yields the softest light. Used in standard bounce mode, some of the light escapes through the material, slightly raising the ambient light level and lowering contrast while most of it is directed towards your subject. If you want a harder light, turn the umbrella around and aim the convex side at your subject and punch your light source through it.

    If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (Silver).

    First of all it's a really huge, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. Put another way, if you combined a beauty dish with a softbox, you'd have a parabolic umbrella.

    This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is reinforced for strength and instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass. The fixed black backing ensures that all of the light output is on your subject instead of through the umbrella. The silver interior provides a more specular and contrasty look than a white umbrella.

  • Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (White Diffusion)

    If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (Translucent White).

    First of all it's a really huge, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors.

    The white translucent version of this umbrella yields the softest light. Used in standard bounce mode, some of the light escapes through the material, slightly raising the ambient light level and lowering contrast while most of it is directed towards your subject. If you want a harder light, turn the umbrella around and aim the convex side at your subject and punch your light source through it. In both modes you can vary the light quality and output by changing the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft.

    You can also use this umbrella as a scrim over your subject to diffuse harsh light sources like the sun in situations like fashion catalog work outdoors or at the beach. Any way you use it, with the Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella less is definitely more.
