Upgrade your on-camera speedlight to a large, off-camera light source with this Impact Umbrella Flash Kit from B&H. It features a 45" convertible umbrella, an umbrella back with adjustable shoe and an air-cushioned light stand to get everything set up. The umbrella is extremely versatile as it offers a white satin fabric that can be used for shoot-through diffusion or a removable black backing to change it to bounce lighting.

  • Impact Convertible Umbrella - White Satin with Removable Black Backing - 45"

    This is an Impact 45" white satin umbrella with removable black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a softbox.

    Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.

    This size is perfect for a 1 - 2 person half-length portrait, or a 3x4 ft product setup.

    Backing may be removed half way, providing a unique combination of light bounced from different surfaces.

Umbrella Flash Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for beginners. Other than a couple of after market flashes, this was my first purchase for off camera flash. I purchased this kit along with a large reflector with the anticipation of doing a newborn shoot. Unfortunately, client backed out but I have spent plenty of time playing with this kit and I am completely satisfied with what I have received. I am an amateur photographer, by no means is this a high quality professional kit, but for the price it is money well spent. If you are looking for a budget kit, this is the one for you. Photo is using this kit to camera left and a large reflector (silver) to cameras right. Photo was taken in my garage with a black sheet for the backdrop. Nikon D500 camera with a Tamron 70-200.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit Umbrella kit came in a box that was a little worse-for-wear, but I figured that was on the shipper, and not B&H. All of the merchandise inside, however, was pristine. The umbrella itself is a good size for waist-up portraits for softer light, and for a bit harder you can go full body. Shoot-through gives a good light-grenade effect. The black backing is easy to remove. The stand itself seems sturdy enough for indoors, and as-yet I've not used it outdoors but it feels sandbagging is 100% required. The swivel is easy enough to use and accepts my speed lights & receivers just fine. Overall I think it's a great kit especially for an amateur like me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect budget kit Got two of these for my go-to speed light kit. The light stands are surprisingly well constructed, very light and compact. The air cushioning is great too, sometimes they're TOO cushioned! Nice big umbrellas give great wraparound outdoors. The umbrella mounts I was worried about but pleasantly surprised. Solid build, all-metal construction. The cold-shoe clamp on the top is a plus, meaning I don't need to use the flimsy plastic shoes that come with my speed lights. Took one star off because the knobs on the light stands are plastic and maybe a weak point. They have a nice smooth surface but may not stand up in the long term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Kit for the Price I was pretty impressed with the quality of this kit. The aluminum construction of the air cushioned flash stand itself is sturdy and confidence instilling. Personally, I wish that the air cushioning effect were a little less pronounced; it can be difficult to fold up at times. I would also like to see quick release mechanisms instead of the hand screw tightening system to keep the sections extended. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the umbrella mount is made entirely of aluminum, and that the screws and adapters are the same. The umbrella itself is versatile due to its convertible nature, and gives nice, diffused, soft light with a speedlite. Overall, I am very happy with the quality of this kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good kit for a beginner I started OCF and was looking for an affordable kit. The umbrella can be easily converted to a shoot-through in a minute. The umbrella shaft is a bit soft: it's already got a bunch of dents in it from tightening the screw to secure it in the umbrella mount even though I was careful not to overtighten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works well for me. I've used the stand- it's lightweight and folds fairly small. It easily hold my Nikon 700 flash. I haven't used the umbrella yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to get started in off camera flash For someone who never really used off camera flash, this got me everything I needed (aside from the flash) to get started. I have been using it for several months, both indoors and out. My rating is based on it's intended use combined with it's price. I really think it deserves 4.5 stars due the rather small foot print of the light stand. It's a light-weight stand, so when set up the whole thing is a little top heavy (and umbrellas are known for catching the wind). But other than that this is a great product, especially for the price. One plus is the bracket design, which allows the flash to be mounted vertically or horizontally, which actually keeps the flash closer to the center of the umbrella for more even light distribution. Everything else in the kit works as designed. The stand opens and closes and extends fine, and the air cushioning really works. I have had no problem adding or removing the black cover and have used it both as a shoot through and reflective umbrella. The (hollow) shaft does get dimples from tightening the bracket screw, but that doesn't affect the performance and is no big deal at this price point. Bottom line: It works as described. The light is soft and beautiful, and you get more options by having the black cover. Yes it's light and can tip over in the wind, but that's common with all umbrellas. Just add weight. You can get better by spending more, or just get this and start shooting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter kit into the world of directional soft light! I bought this as a gift for a long-time photographer but newbie with OCF (off camera flash). While the build is reasonable, its not by any means indestructible. Understand that light-stands and umbrellas are often consumables in the world of photography. This kit is light-weight and portable. With the right placement and subject to modifier distance, the results can be stunning.
