I have purchased 3 different kinds of umbrellas, that have been more expensive, and from what I've seen the quality wasn't that good compared to the phottix. It even came with a nice little travel case vs the more expensive ones didn't. The only little minor issue I found was the slot to put in the flash through was a bit tight, if only they could extend the zipper a little longer it would be perfect. My only regret was not getting one sooner. I only wish they made a bigger one

Very nice shoot through.

Couldn't be happier with this umbrella. No complaints at all. Have used in a variety of situations and not been let down. Great value as well. As with all umbrellas, just be careful opening and closing it. Don't be too rough

I have been using this a lot..

I have been using this a lot. Mostly I had been using 2 foot and 3 foot traditional soft boxes. A couple of good size strip boxes as well as a 7 foot umbrella reflector style. Shooting outdoors with this I find it to be aerodynamic and not catch the wind so bad as well as easy to transport. When I flashed the talent or family for portraits it leaves a soft graduated fall off on the edge of the frames. If that makes sense. So no hard line on the ground where the flash hits. So if I’m taking a photo on the beach there’s a graduated fall off on the sand. So nice In the studio it’s really nice when I’m shooting high key. I can get the light extra close to that talent and soften any hard lines on the white backdrop from the other lights from shadowing. Sense the light is thrown a little bit everywhere I don’t need to use reflectors or bounce cards as often. Also! When I’m photographing in a room it fills the room in a real natural way with my 55 Kelvin Quality of construction 9 out of 10. Quality of light 10 out of 10. Versatility 10 out of 10. The ability to get it extra close to your talent for a headshot is priceless. I’m buying a second one so I have a matching Light source when I used to key lights for my larger groups of family portraits. Like 50 people and what not

Is the light coming out from this umbrella even? Any concern of hot spot?

Based on the results we have seen with this umbrella, there is no concern of there being a hot spot and the lighting would be distributed evenly.
