        You can use this umbrella as shoot through or direct and get great light but the price you pay for lighter weight is that you have to treat it with care.

        Comments about Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (White Diffusion):

        Well made. Comes with a case (a valuable accessory, especially when you don't have it). Even though lightweight, the size creates a lot of weight for the central shaft. Some flexing occurs. Not a deal breaker if you understand that and work with it. matching quality to the Westcott line of umbrellas.

          It is an awesome size for a translucent umbrella, but you had better have a strong enough stand to hold it up , or it will pull your lights over. Even at 3 pounds

          I needed an octabox but they are expensive, so I decided to use this huge umbrella instead and it makes the job so far!

            I shot a family of 7 with this umbrella. It was a sunny day and it worked perfect to difuse the light.
            FYI- if nobody is there to hold, get sandbags. It is an umbrella...it does not take much wind to start tipping.

                    Comments about Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (White Diffusion):

                    I must say I haven't used it yet but initial impressions are positive. I was debating between this one and Westcott's more expensive alternative. The material is thick enough, not almost translucent like some of my cheap white umbrellas. The fiberglass connecting rods look solid and the umbrella is heavier than I expected. In use, I don't know if the weight will be an issue. It will surely need a very solid support. On windless days I think this umbrella will be very practical in many ways.
