Angler PAUB-88BSW overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Angler PAUB-88BSW reviews

    ParaSail Parabolic Umbrella (White with Removable Black/Silver, 88") is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It Broke on the First Day This looks like a great idea, right? I think it is, but the product is junk. The rod snapped completely in half- just cleanly snapped off. (How is this possible? I have cheap umbrellas and not one time has a rod broken in half.) Worse, once the rod was broken, I couldn't close the umbrella, so I had this giant sail to dispose of. Thankfully, I took photos and B&H understood why I couldn't possibly return it. The other thing of note is that the inside was very dirty and stained, as if it has been sitting around in a damp basement. I wish I'd written a review when this happened and posted the photos. I guess you'll have to take my word for it when I say- Don't buy this. There's something very wrong with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item, don't know why no one thought of it before I shoot a lot of indoor work where the rooms are rather tight and there is little space to more around. A normal umbrella doesn't get high enough before hitting the ceiling. They were smart enough to trim off the top and bottom of the umbrella to make it more compact and usable in tight spaces. I have both the 45" and the 60" and really like the coverage and quality of the light. I usually use it as a white umbrella and don't have any hot spots or radical falloff. I just wish they had come up with this idea earlier. Even though the price is pretty cheap they seem to have quality and I believe the item will last quite some time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for on location! I have found this new wing shape ideal for working on location for headshots in some small offices and boardrooms. The shape gives me the opportunity to use this parabolic and get the light higher. It also seems like a solid build quality, so it should outlast other cheaper umbrellas that tend to break in the wind. I always like the option with modifiers to be able to use it as a shoto through and a bounce, this parabolic lets me choose that! I highly reco this compact design for your next home or location shoot!

    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 5 out of 5 by from A rectangular umbrella makes a lot of sense! At first I didn't quite get the idea behind a rectangular umbrella, until I realized that when I work in a low-ceiling environment, that it would allow me to get the umbrella and flash higher up that I would with a round umbrella. This then allows me a better opportunity to get the light coming in from a correct angle. You can turn this umbrella vertically as well. All this makes it ideal for anyone who has a home studio or works in a tighter environment. Build quality is also really good.
    Date published: 2017-06-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for average ceiling heights I have almost every light modifier made. Lots of wasted cash, but live and learn right? I just got this today, I was able to raise my Profoto B1's about a foot higher than when using a 42" round umbrella in a room with an 8' ceiling. Very pleased with the design. I'm curious about the colour temperature of the fabric though. They look kind of yellowish compared to my umbrellas. I colour-balance using a passport, so won't be an issue in the end. Great product!
    Date published: 2018-01-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A different light I like this umbrella. It has a different shape which plays on the eyes differently and can be utilized in more than one way. This unit maybe slightly heavy for battery operated stobes outdoors but a great studio addition.
    Date published: 2017-04-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile, Compact Used with a speedlight and umbrella holder on tripod or lightstand. With the umbrella shaft at maximum length and speedlight adjusted to 35 degree coverage, the umbrella is illuminated completely and evenly with very little spillover. Great as a fill, illuminates the subject evenly. If positioned close, light wraps partially around the subject, softening the light even further.
