Photek SoftLighter 60" Overview

An umbrella that can be quickly transformed into a softbox, the 60" SoftLighter Umbrella with Removable 7mm and 8mm Shafts from Photek is built on a redesigned classic umbrella with a fiberglass frame and white reflective fabric that is free from contaminates that might add an unwanted color cast to your light output. The unique modifier includes a diffuser that fits tightly over the open side of the umbrella and accepts flash heads 7.25" or less in diameter - instant softbox! The combination of the light bouncing off the umbrella and through the diffuser yields a soft, flattering quality of light and since closer is softer, a portion of the shaft is removable so that you can work closer to your subject.

The SoftLighter's 10 panel construction (instead of the usual 8) gives the fabric tighter support that results in more controllable output and refined circular catchlights in the eyes of your subjects. The umbrella's black backing is removable allowing you to shoot through the translucent white fabric for snappier contrast. This SoftLighter umbrella ships with a removable 7mm shaft for lights that require it, but an 8mm shaft is also included to give options to the user.

Which diffuser set up is needed to use the Softlighter with a Godox AD200?
Asked by: Linda
Hey I have one for my profoto B1 and my buddy has one for his alien bees. I’m pretty certain all sizes are just diameter of umbrellas and mine came with two different size poles to screw in so they are universal for all lights. Long as your light has a hole for a umbrella - Id say just make sure you it comes with the 7mm and 8mm pole.

How come this umbrella has 8mm and 7mm shafts while another Photek at the same size only has the 8mm shaft? I understand the shaft can be removed after the umbrella is set-up, but just don't understand why there are 2 sizes?
Asked by: Dan
On a Profoto ProHead, you really have to push hard to jam the 8mm shaft into the spring-loaded receiver on the light - I have broken the glass dome on a head more than once when doing this. I recommend the 7mm shaft if you're using Profoto.

About 18'' of the end of the shaft just un screws so you can get the Softlighter closer to your subject and the shaft will not be in the image.

Does the 60" comes with the gold and silver inner reflectors? I got both the 46 and 60, however my 46" only has the reflectors. Just wondering if I've possibly misplaced them, or maybe they don't come with it.
