The 88" 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.

    ParaSail Parabolic Umbrella (White with Removable Black/Silver, 88") is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Soft Massive Light Amazing, just as they said it would be. I shoot casting headshots and am always after a soft main light to shoot directly above the camera and being in tight spaces its hard to get an octobox or big softbox above and still be able to shoot. This is an incredibly large light source and although they say its parabolic, the white material inside basically turns this into a giant soft light. Worth every cent and super portable, quality material. The carry bag has a hole in it from where the pointy end of the umbrella has gone through, thats the only problem, but I dont plan on using it tbh.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you could be guaranteed no stains Umbrella had stains on it this is the second time unlike the 88 inch, the 60 inch that I got twice to had stains on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this if to add to your modifier toolkit! A very different and cool modifier! If you love a broad light source like me that wraps around your model!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and great function in a small studio This is a well made umbrella which I bought and imported into the UK for use in a very small studio. It allows me to shoot in the same way as I would with a standard 7ft umbrella but I can get it closer to the wall/roof and it gives me more room to work around it due to the narrow profile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOLID Modifier Really solidly built modifier that for sure fits a need. Interesting design, only used it in huge rooms but I see how it can work with low ceilings.
