Savage Translum Reviews

Lasts for years

I started using Savage translum vellum almost 18 years ago. Recently I tried other cheaper products from online mega “Prime” shopping sites and was terribly disappointed. Savage translum vellum has many uses in a studio environment. It is my go to material for multiple projects. I use it primarily on a white table to produce flawless shadows under jewelry and other retail products as well as to diffuse lighting on the fly without having to setup a bulky soft box.

Excellent Diffusion Material

Works great as a wrinkle free backdrop or, backlight it for a cleaner, brighter white. Can also be used as an additional layer of diffusion with soft boxes.

Perfect

Absolutely perfect material for diffusion. Only downside is the price, but it seems to be the only game in town.

Nice product

Durable and easy to hang. We hung a 10 foot length of it sideways for an interview backdrop. Casts a nice soft light when lit from behind.  Light loss and spread seemed roughly equivalent to Lee 400.

A good buy

I am very happy with the purchase. The image in the picture gives a substandard idea about the product. But it came in good packaging and quickly exactly what I expected. Thank you.

Great diffusion!

I really like the soft diffusion for product photography. It's more diffuse than 216.

Hard to get locally so once again B&H to the rescue. Incredibly fast international service at a reasonable price. Translum is the gold standard in diffusion material with a thousand uses and, in all probability, a thousand yet to be discovered. Many thanks.
