- Diffuser Turns Umbrella into a Softbox
- Fiberglass Frame
- 10 Panels Instead of 8
- Removable Black Backing
An umbrella that can be quickly transformed into a softbox, the 60" SoftLighter Umbrella with Removable 8mm Shaft 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.
