Photogenic EC45K overview

  • 1Description

The Photogenic Four Piece Umbrella and Stand Kit is based on the 45" Eclipse umbrellas. Each has a removable black backing and an extra white satin panel added during construction. The result is the elimination of the reflection of the metal frame of the umbrella in the eyes of your subject, or on highly reflective surfaces, such as chrome or brass.

The light stands are a combination of design quality and practicality, achieving superior stability and longer service life even under constant, rigorous use. This kit includes two of these aluminum stands, with air cushioning that gently lowers the light, preventing damage to light fixtures and fingers when section locks have not been properly tightened.

The UM-4 is a lightweight but sturdy polycarbonate light and umbrella mount. It swivels and tilts, and includes 5/8" and 1/4"-20 screw mounts.

The case is constructed of Cordura nylon, includes 16 touch-fastener straps sewn into the interior to keep everything in place, and has two large, external zippered pockets for toting additional accessories.
The case measures 44 x 15 x 5.5" (112 x 38 x 14cm). A polyurethane padding is built into the outer covering and special plastic liners come attached inside to protect equipment from rough handling.
Removable black cover on umbrellas allows your light source to "shoot-through", for a more direct light.
Optional casters are available for the light stands.

    Photogenic EC45K reviews

    Two Umbrellas and Two Stands Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK, but NOT a great value for the money Overall it delivers what it promises, but so does the competition with a better price, and the difference on build quality is negligible. In terms of build quality, I would sort them in this order: Light stands, umbrella brackets, holding bag, and umbrellas on a far away last place... the makeshift of the umbrellas is that disappointing. The bag does honor the omnibus nickname, you can fit two entire kits, 2 tripods and 4 flashes in there.. just don't expect the seams to last a lifetime, as they are of average quality (for that price one would expect double seams). Remember to buy flash hot-shoes adapters, as they don't come with the umbrella brackets. Also take into account the gray color of the stands if you are doing low-key, concert or night photography, as they tend to attract highlights that you will have to photo shop out of the picture latter on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bang for the buck Great Quality. The umbrellas are very nice with the white interior lining inside of the arms of the umbrella so the metal does not show. There are other kits available but without the bag by the time you buy a bag to carry them arroud you are at the same price or higher. The Bag also carries my tripod and 42 impact reflector with stand. Does not come with a flash shoe, I ordered the Crane shoes for the Nikon flashes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I expected, and MORE! This kit offers everything that i expected and MORE!, the quality seems to be On-Point! I have owned this kit for 2 weeks now and have use it in 5 different shoots. Extremely portable with a durable carry bag, this kit has become my exclusive gear teamed with a set of Canon 580exII Flashes for all off-site operations. Drew. @

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value. This kit is perfect. Well made, sturdy, and good value. The stands are very well made, as well as the adjustable mounts for the umbrellas and speed lights. I use them with my Nikon system and the whole set up only takes a couple of minutes. A bonus is that the black covers on the umbrellas are removable, so you can shoot through them if you want a different quality of light than the bounce. Great product kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very portable! love love love! this is great for just starting out! i use it right now for inside photography portraits and it works great! my two flashes work with my camera (once you get the settings to work with one another) It is very easy to set up and it comes in a great carry case! Yes, people have said that when you close up the umbrellas don't line up perfectly with the layers--but I'm pretty sure as you continue to treat it with care and keep it in a safe place it will always do its job!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light Kit I love this light kit. Everything is well made and it comes with a bag large enough to hold 2 kits. The black umbrella cover can be removed to use just the white umbrella. One reviewer wrote that you need to purchase additional flash mount adapters but the kit does have adapters with it that worked fine with my Vello triggers. I am very happy with the kit and the quality of all components.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll be glad you purchased. I've been shooting sports now for several years and have recently decided to get in to portrait photography. I purchased this set to handle my first off camera lights and am very pleased with what I've been able to do so far - adding indirect light sources to the subjects that I'm shooting and softening the light hitting the subject. Extremely well made and easy to setup. One word of caution - with the size of the umbrella, you will want to use sandbags to stabilize the legs. I had read this in an article about lighting and was glad that I had the sandbags at hand - once setup on the posts extending from the stand to the floor, it is rock solid. You will not regret this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Starter Set I bought this kit to start as a budding strobist and do some portrait work. I was very pleased with the kit upon arrival. The packing was great and everything was in perfect condition. The stands seem to be of very good quality with smooth action and dampened motion. The umbrellas are very nice with the covered ribs and the black cover goes off and back on easily. The adapters are plastic but seem like they will last a long time provided they are not abused. The bag is especially nice with room and tiedowns for additional stands and umbrellas. It also has the added touch of color stitching for the company name. The bundled price is very good compared to putting the pieces together.
