BH #ANPAUB45BSW • MFR #PAUB-45BSW
Angler ParaSail Parabolic Umbrella (White with Removable Black/Silver, 45")
Key Features
  • Winged Shape for Low-Ceiling Rooms
  • Useful for Home Studios
  • Removable Black/Silver Backing
  • Can Be Used Vertically or Horizontally
The 45" White with Removable Black/Silver ParaSail Parabolic Umbrella from Angler has a wing-like, rounded rectangular shape that makes it a unique addition to the light-shapers available to spark and give voice to the photographer's creative expression. Especially useful in home studios, tight spaces or rooms with low ceilings, the ParaSail can be used horizontally for a wrap-around quality of light with maximum space-saving. Used vertically, the modifier has an initial wrap-around look with a dramatic fall-off, especially when feathered, that facilitates creation of lighting ratios. The versatile ParaSail also offers contrast alternatives; the black/silver backing adds punch and crispness to the output and is slightly softened by the white interior. Take off the black/silver backing for a soft neutral look.

The 45" White with Removable Black/Silver ParaSail Parabolic Umbrella from Angler has a wing-like, rounded rectangular shape that makes it a unique addition to the light-shapers available to spark and give voice to the photographer's creative expression. Especially useful in home studios, tight spaces or rooms with low ceilings, the ParaSail can be used horizontally for a wrap-around quality of light with maximum space-saving. Used vertically, the modifier has an initial wrap-around look with a dramatic fall-off, especially when feathered, that facilitates creation of lighting ratios. The versatile ParaSail also offers contrast alternatives; the black/silver backing adds punch and crispness to the output and is slightly softened by the white interior. Take off the black/silver backing for a soft neutral look.

Besides novel functioning, the ParaSail is also structurally sound - its fiberglass ribs create a uniform surface for maximum reflectance and the 8mm solid aluminum shaft provides strong support and holds flexing to a minimum. Unique, versatile and sturdy construction backed with numerous light quality options make the ParaSail a creative and practical choice for the savvy photographer.

Unique Shape
The true parabolic shape has a wing-like rounded rectangular appearance that is useful for home studios, rooms with low-ceilings or space-challenged situations, especially when used in the horizontal mode. The large reflective surface offers maximum coverage with an impressive degree of directional control.
Use Vertically or Horizontally
Used vertically the ParaSail offers an initial wrap around quality followed by a dramatic fall-off especially when feathered - useful for creating light ratios. Used horizontally, the ParaSail provides maximum wrap-around light coverage.
Fiberglass Ribs and Rods
Fiberglass ribs and rods offer greater flexibility and resist the tendency to bend like aluminum ribbed umbrellas. The ribs create a more uniform shape for greater reflectance.
White Interior with Removable Silver
White interior with removable black/silver backing provides a dual purpose to this modifier. When used with the black/silver backing the ParaSail offers a slightly punchy quality with maximum output, while the white fabric softens the contrast. Used alone without the silver backing, the white interior produces a soft, neutral effect.

The Angler ParaSail Parabolic Umbrella (White with Removable Black/Silver, 60") BH #ANPAUB60BSW can be used with a speedlight. You will need a stand adapter like this one BH #IMDUBAS.

What are the exact edge to edge dimensions of the 88 inch- long and short side? I read that the long side of the 60 inch is actually 54, so I'd like to know that same info for the 88 inch as well. Thanks!
Asked by: Cameron
Umbrellas are measured around the back which makes the numbers higher than the face width of the umbrella.

question

If I have a 10x12 studio space, do I need to get the 60 inch or can I just get the 45 inch umbrella?
Asked by: Amy G.
I bought the 60 one. The actual size is 54 the longest dimension and 40 the shorter dimension. 60 is the measurement side to side across the outside curved shape. So they're are really a bit smaller than the size designation. I have enough ceiling height in my studio, but it's saved the day in locations with lower ceilings. It's also noticeably heavier than other umbrellas. Solid metal shaft, not tubular. My flash heads by themselves cannot safely hold this umbrella. I've rigged an easy and adjustable extra support with an aluminum tube and two small clamps. Other ways possible, too. I wish you all the best!
