Photoflex UM-RUT45 Overview

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 softbox.

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 size is perfect for a 1-2 person head, or head-to-waist shot, or a 4x6 ft product setup.

Fabrics are color balanced to all Photoflex soft boxes, panels and discs.

Is the interior of this umbrella white satin?
Asked by: Scott
The interior is a white but I do not believe it is satin. The black exterior can be removed so it can be used to either bounce flash (exterior on) or diffuse flash (exterior off).

what is the material for the interior of this item??
Asked by: Linfeng
The interior material for these umbrellas is a tightly woven, white nylon. In the standard configuration with the black backing, the material acts as a reflector, resulting in a soft spread of light. If the black backing is removed, the white material can be used in a shoot through configuration.
