Impact S3233 overview

  • 1Description

Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any 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.

This Impact 33" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in head-and-shoulders portraits for one or two persons.

    Impact S3233 reviews

    White Translucent Umbrella (33") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 140.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from inexpensive, and they work Not the best quality umbrellas, but perfectly acceptable. My smith Victor umbrellas are much nicer material and construction quality, though I daresay the job they do is the same. I feel alot better using the $ umbrella in my portable kit though! Grab a few, great for shooting through in the studio or in the real world!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price I like the price, most photographic equipment is grossly overpriced so it's nice to see something like this. It's a little flimsy, but not more than most regular umbrellas. I do a lot of event videography, so I move things around a lot, but I've managed to make a set of these last over a year by babying them. I use them with halogen reflectors as a sort of cheap, portable softbox and the quality of light is excellent. This is great for video interviews, and would also be good for portraits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DME I gave this umbrella five stars for the quality. It is very well made. However I would rather go with a white REFLECTIVE umbrella as opposed to TRANSLUCENT because there is a hot spot in the center when shooting through the umbrella. A reflective umbrella also has a hotspot if you shoot through it, but it's a lot more diffused than a translucent umbrella.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than I expected for the price So normally at this price I am expecting junk cause these things start at double the price and go up at most small camera outfits. This does the job it's supposed to do, and can't complain about the construction. It is a lightweight umbrella. If you are going to try to bend it, then it bends end of story, light weight get it. I would not call it flimsy by a long shot. Overall impression, yeah I would buy this again in a heartbeat, and it takes nice soft shots with my Nikon speed-lights, and handles the warmth from my Ari Tungstens (from not too close) just fine.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Umbrella itself OK, (but) The umbrella itself is fine, (but) the stem or handle is made of very thin material and as such you cannot help but crush it when you tighten it down in the umbrella clamp. OK it is not an expnesive piece so you not out much money but you will be buying another one in the near future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy & well made I'm using this with an optically slaved speedlight. It is a nice neutral white - works as a reflector, or shoot-thru. Very sturdy - great value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Finally! An umbrella that works great, fits in my case and doesn't pull my light down. It was cheap too! Well done Impact. This umbrella works like a soft box to even out the light and make your interview subjects look great. I had used a much larger version of this type of umbrella for years with my Lowel light kit. Each light is 500 watts and the umbrella would work great. The problem was it was too big to put in the carrying case and too heavy for the light to stay in the correct position. The large umbrella would always pull the light down to point at the floor. This new Impact umbrella works to defuse the light just as well as the larger version, but with the added benefit of working better with my Lowel light kit. B&H sent it right away and I had it in time for my next shoot. It was so affordable I'm going to buy another for the second light. Thank you B&H and Impact!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great umbrella for the price, get a few. It's small,�It stayed out of the way, fast set up, did the job well. For a larger crowd you would need a bigger umbrella. 4 stars because it only comes with a plastic sleeve and not a proper bag. For the price I got a few for breakage. Remember to buy an umbrella adapter between the stand and light. To get a good light spread, grip the umbrella at the end of the rod to get distance between the light and umbrella. Use your speed light's build in diffuser along with this umbrella for added light spread. Umbrellas will spill light, so keep this in mind if your shot has hard light it may be bouncing off a mirror. One more thing, weight down your stand if your in a crowd. The attached image has a single umbrella 45 degrees to the left and 45 degrees up. 6-7 feet from subject. Upright flash on camera to trigger the umbrella as a slave. Ambient light from the right. A hair light would have been nice if the set allowed it.
