Westcott Apollo Deep Umbrella (White, 53")

BH #WEUA53W • MFR #5636
Westcott Apollo Deep Umbrella (White, 53")
Key Features
  • 16 Durable Fiberglass Ribs
  • Deep Profile Provides Softness & Control
  • Neutral White Interior
  • Dual-Wall Shaft Rods
Employing a distinct design, the 53" Apollo Deep Umbrella from Westcott combines a soft quality of light with control over the output which is exceptional for an umbrella modifier. The depth of the light-shaper "focuses" the light, so while it disperses it like other umbrellas do, it also has a sharper cut-off. It provides control over where the light falls and maximizes output, making it suitable for long throw work. Unlike rectangular softboxes, the Apollo provides the benefit of natural-looking catchlights in the eyes of your subject. Made to last, the Apollo has 16 durable fiberglass ribs and a dual-walled 8mm metal shaft that fits nearly all flash heads, and it fits speedlights using a separately purchased swivel stand mount with an umbrella receptacle.

Precise and Direct Lighting

Designed with a deep profile and rigid framework, the Apollo Deep Umbrella creates an even and direct throw of light for impressive portrait photography.

Natural-Looking Catchlights

The Apollo Deep Umbrella's 16-rod round design create natural-looking catchlights in your subject's eyes, allowing for pristine portraiture without distracting reflections.

Designed for On-the-Go Photographers

With flexible framework and instant setup, these modifiers are designed for busy photographers. Each Apollo umbrella packs up quickly and can be thrown into any gear bag for effortless travel and storage.

Control Focus and Output

Reflective, white-interior, deep umbrellas provide softer light output compared with the highly-reflective silver interior. Adjusting the position of your light source on the deep umbrella allows you to control the light's focus to achieve the look that you desire.

Easy to Mount

Shooting with strobes or monolights? Most studio lights include a built-in umbrella receptacle for instant mounting.

Shooting with speedlights? There are a variety of mounting brackets available with adjustable and tiltable options for precise positioning.

Westcott Apollo 53" White Reviews

Update to a Previous Review

Still not a fan of the case, but absolutely love the umbrella. It really is a go-to for my daily kit. Also had one break, and the customer service in getting a refund was exceptionally easy.

The bag/case is terrible

I love this umbrella, and have another, but the bag/fabric case has been changed to one that's now too tight to pack the diffusion into. Used to be great for traveling light and quick, but it's now lost its function for this.

Great Umbrella

Large size makes this umbrella soft while still able to use it with relatively low ceilings
