Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (White Translucent)
Key Features
  • White Translucent Fabric, No Backing
  • Bounce or Shoot Through
  • Improved Locking Mechanism
  • Durable 16-Rib Design
If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella in translucent white. 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 Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella in translucent white. 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. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass. The improved "finger-friendly" locking mechanism means you won't pinch your fingers when you're setting up or breaking down. The translucent white umbrella's fabric can be used in the traditional bounce mode, or for slightly snappier contrast and a low-ceiling-friendly smaller form factor, you can turn the umbrella around, aim the convex side of it at your subject, and "shoot through" by pumping the light source through the fabric. 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.

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.
Improved Locking Mechanism
The improved "finger-friendly" locking mechanism means you won't pinch your fingers when you're setting up or breaking down.
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.
White Translucent Fabric
When used as a shoot-through umbrella, the white translucent fabric softens and broadens light from your flash and provides you with a seamless and natural-looking light for your subjects.
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.
