The deep xl umbrella provides the coverage and pop I need. It’s definitely a go to modifier for me. Very happy with this purchase.

Best umbrella to get. I use this with a Profoto B1 head. Beautiful light, well made, and I like the adjustable equality of light produced by sliding the B1 on the umbrella shaft.

Profoto makes some of the best umbrellas and this doesn't disappoint. Excellent build quality and produces a beautiful light. I use this with a Profoto B1 and like how I can adjust the spread of light by sliding the B1 head along the shaft. I use this with and without the optional diffuser.

Great light, but mediocre build quality.

I have six of these, and I love the quality of light. But the construction is rather poor, especially for the price. Be advised that Profoto offers absolutely no parts or repairs for these umbrellas.

Big, Beautiful Soft Light but Be Careful

This umbrella produces a gorgeous light and sets up in a minute. It has several benefits with and without the diffuser. However, the wind knocked down my light (on a C-stand) before my assistant could grab it. This has happened countless times with my Octa's, other umbrellas etc.with no issues. This time, the rod snapped in half and bent into itself. The umbrella was useless after less than hour of shooting. This is great for a studio or indoor shoot with space but be very careful using it outdoors. I like the umbrella so much I bought another after the fist one was destroyed on the first shoot with it. I created a lighting panel with the silver from the destroyed umbrella.

Still Testing It Out

I haven't yet been able to use it in all the different configurations that I plan. So far it seems like a nice umbrella but certainly doesn't produce the quality of light that a true parabolic does. At the same time, it's much lighter, portable and I expect it will be much more versatile.  It seems rather flimsy. Not that it's cheaply made. In fact, as far as umbrellas go, it's well made but it uses the same material as all the other Profoto deep umbrellas. The extra size allows it to wobble a bit more than the smaller versions.   I plan on using it outside form time to time but can assure you, I won't be taking this outside if there is so much as a puff of wind. Mixing the good and the bad, I expect good things from it. I don't think it's going to be a disappointment.

Awesome light shaping tool, weak rod

I've used this light modifier for about a year. My go-to one-light setup consist of this umbrella + diffuser with a Profoto B1X. I mainly use it in studio, and only used it on-location twice. I'm digging the soft light that comes out of this, especially when I feather the light. The ease of setup along with the speed of setup is a huge plus. Being able to use this for portraits and full body photos makes it a great asset to my gear. The 65 allows for a lot of cover. Added with a Vflat, I have a consistent look. Yesterday was the 2nd time I used it on-location. I did a Grad Shoot, at the end of the shoot, the wind blew and knocked the umbrella down. It wasn't a harsh fall, but it was enough to break the rod. And that was wrap; I wasn't able to re-connect the rod. I did an impromptu fix for the rod by opening a hole on one side of the entry points, re-connecting it, hammering it, then taping it with gaffers tape. It's still flimsy though, and I'm worried about using it again. I will though, until it falls off again and I'll try to fix it another way. I understand that I should have watched the light and the kept it more stable. I also understand that having a 65 umbrella outdoors is a bit ridiculous. But hey, I was having fun and experimenting. I have no regrets. As with many of these occurrences, it comes when you least expect it. We just finished shooting, thank goodness, and was putting the gear away. One blow with the wind is quick. I'll be even more aware of my gear on the next shoot. Been trying to find a replacement rod from Profoto, but I haven't found any for sale online. These umbrellas are quite expensive, so I don't want to throw it away. I am considering a 5 foot Octa from Profoto, if the umbrella no longer can function in the studio. Attached are photos from a shoot that I used with the setup. I recommend this umbrella for indoor, surely.

question

Will this size work on a B2 head? Or does it need a different mount?
Asked by: Ryan
While it is a large umbrella and I would recommend using a sturdy stand (and sandbags if used outdoors in windy conditions), the Profoto Deep Silver Umbrella (Extra Large, 65 ) uses the standard 8mm umbrella shaft and would slide into the umbrella receptacle on the top of the Profoto B2 Off-Camera Flash.

Is the 65 measurement it's actual diameter, or rib length (over the curve)?
Asked by: Brian
Mine measured from rod end to opposing rod end was 65 . I also have a Profoto Deep Silver Umbrella Large and the same distance was 51 . So, in my cases the measurements met with the specifications.
