Photek SoftLighter Umbrella with Removable 8mm Shaft (60")
Key Features
  • 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.

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.
