If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the silver Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella. First of all, it's a huge broad light source that wraps light around your subject, yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. Put another way, if you combined a beauty dish with a softbox, you'd have a parabolic umbrella.

If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the silver Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella. First of all, it's a huge broad light source that wraps light around your subject, yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. Put another way, if you combined a beauty dish with a softbox, you'd have a parabolic umbrella.

This umbrella has a unique structural design as well. The shaft is reinforced for strength and instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass. The fixed black backing ensures that all of the light output is bounced back to your subject instead of through the umbrella. The silver interior provides a more specular and contrasty look than a white umbrella. You can also vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer light. In addition, an optional diffuser is available for this umbrella, which effectively converts it to a large softbox with just a 1/2 stop loss of output.

This silver version is ideal for throwing the light over a long distance. Two of them, for instance, could light an entire auditorium or a large graduating class. The umbrella features an improved finger-friendly locking mechanism for secure and fast set up and break down.

Improved Locking Mechanism

Improved locking mechanism provides fast, secure, and "finger-friendly" set up and break down.

Parabolic Shape

The parabolic shape produces a more natural wraparound light than a regular umbrella. This soft and natural light is what makes this umbrella a favorite of wedding and portrait photographers.

Wide Diameter

The 7-foot diameter ensures a soft light quality. This umbrella produces enough light for stunning group photos. It will also emit a broad enough beam for full-length portraits.

Silver Interior

A highly reflective silver ripstop nylon lines the umbrella's interior. It produces maximum light output that's great for studio or outdoor shooting where more contrast or specular highlights are wanted. Often used by fashion photographers for its punchy light.

16-Rib Design

For an umbrella to be effective, it needs to maintain its shape, and the fabric should remain taut. The umbrella features a 16-rib design that maintains the shape of the umbrella and the tension of the fabric for an even light spread.

Can I use this with my canon 600 ex ii and white diffusion panel? Or will I not have enough light output?
Asked by: Chaya
These are designed for higher output strobes, but will work with any light source. They basically diffuse light over a large area. The lower the input power the less light hurting your subject. So you have to worry about the level of ancient light. If you are shooting indoors in a darkened room them you will probably get the effect you want.

does this work with Elinchrom strobes?
Asked by: li
This can only work with Elinchrom strobes that contain an umbrella mount above their stand mount. The umbrella will not fit the main umbrella slot below the flash tube.

Hi!I m conssidering buying this umbrella but i own a Godox ad 600 and a Dynaphos Expert QS-300.does anyone know if it s compatibble?
Asked by: Ciprian M.
I recently purchased this. I use it with a Profoto D1 and a speedlight with an umbrella bracket. This is just a really, really big umbrella. So any flash with an umbrella mount should fit just fine.
