This is a 60" White Satin Umbrella with Removal Black Cover. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.

Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.

Westcott umbrellas are measured tip to tip across the arch of the umbrella.

Westcott umbrellas are rated safe for use with hot lights up to 1000 Watts.
This size is perfect for a 3 person full length shot, or a 4x8 size still-life setup.

60" White Satin Umbrella with Removable Black Cover is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Modifier, but 60 Inches? Casts very pleasing light, is well built, and has nice case to put it in when not in use... but how, exactly, does Westcott measure this thing? I set it up and thought it just didn't seem like 60 inches. I measured from side to side, and it was only 48 inches. I measured from point to point (of the spines) and got 50.5 inches. The end results are very pleasing in photographs, and I intend to keep this modifier... but I do not understand how Westcott derives their 60-inch measurement. ??!?!?!?? Now I am hesitant to purchase any more Westcott products due to not knowing if I'll get the size I think I'm getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and light for the size I've used this product now for 1 month in a three light setup for video shoots, and with 1200 watts behind it, the diffused light is great. It really makes it look like daylight. No problems whatsoever, and used with an Impact stand and Impact mount. Will pick up a few more of these for additional key lighting. Definitely if you're looking to fill up a room with diffused light, this 60 beast will do the job. Pros: doesn't get hot, ever! Even at 1200 watts of light, with the bulbs only 6 inches away. They weren't kidding when they said heat resistant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Fine 50 Inch Umbrella? OK so this ones on me; I've been using Photoflex Umbrellas for years but I decided to give Westcott a try. It seems as well made except the material is thinner, but if the seems hold up I'm OK with that. How-stinking-ever compared the the Photoflex 60 it's way small. Photoflex apparantly measures from point to point Westcott measures the arc length from point to point around the outside. Now, it's on me because if I read the description more than just a glance it stated that clearly. But why in the world would you measure something that way? Marketing, that's why! I'm old and grumpy, a machinist by trade an engineer by profession, you don't measure stuff that way. Buy Photoflex if you want a 60 umbrella, Westcott for a 50er.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Good Price This umbrella seems to be well made. At 60 you may need a high ceiling. My ceiling is 8 feet and kinda limits the angle at which I can aim the light at. An umbrella this size is good for 2 to 3 people standing which is why I bought it. I am happy with this purchase and would buy it again. Oh the only thing I don't care for is the catch light in the eye from an umbrella. As I learn more about portraits I'll probably find out that I was doing something wrong. Note: A beauty dish may be more desirable than an umbrella in a close up portrait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for the price The 60 umbrella worked very well for group pictures. Exposure was uniform. Remember that 60 applies to the distance along the ribs. The diameter from one end to the other is 48. Have not tried to use it without the black cover yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described I've used it with the black cover and shoot-through using the Canon Speedlite 430EX wirelessly. It works just as well as I expected it to. I decided to pick one up after watching the OneLight Photography DVD. I've tried out the various ways and have no complaints about it. Using it outside, I would recommend weighting it down with a sandbag. Mine toppled over on the first day and two of the umbrella arms bent and can't be fixed. Surprisingly it still works. No complaints. Considering getting another just because it's a pain sometimes to switch from shoot-through to the black reflective mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Umbrella Around I've been through several cheaper umbrellas in the past. I'm a wyoming photographer and if you've ever been to wyoming before you know its windy. So many of the umbrellas in the past have fell over and the little metal ribs that hold out the umbrella bend over and eventually break. this umbrella uses fiberglass ribs, and is 100x more durable. Great umbrella for the money, do yourself a favor and choose these if your in the market for an umbrella

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great umbrella I bought this large umbrella to be able to photograph groups (maybe 2-4 persons) and this one does it really well. I only had a small umbrella which was only good enough for one person. This one covers quite a large area and I absolutely love it. Ive used it outside and inside and I absolutely love the results. It gives a smooth soft lighting and the build quality is quite good. Very good umbrella. I havent discovered any downside yet.
