This is a Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit. It includes 2- Impact 32" White umbrellas with removable black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. 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 light box.

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. Each umbrella is perfect for a 1 person head shot, or 3x4 ft product setup.

Each of the 2 Impact brand umbrella brackets fit on top of almost any light stand, has different size stud adapters for various grip clamps, includes a cold shoe mount for your shoe-mount flash. It swivels, tilts, locks into place, and accepts almost any small to medium sized umbrella.

The Impact brand light stands are black, air-cushioned, and rise to a maximum height of 8 feet.

Impact brand light stands are well-known for quality at a low price.
An air cushioned light stand protects equipment and fingers from injury if you forget to tighten the stand section locks.

Note:Light stand and umbrella specifications may vary according to availability.

    Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price I originally bought this because I didn't know what all was necessary to mount an umbrella and flash to a stand. This kit includes everything you need to do so. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to moutn the bracket on the stand as you have to switch the threaded part in the stand, but after that it was easy sailing. However, when I mounted my Canon 580EX II flash onto the flash mount on the included bracket, the set screw that it supposed to hold it on (provide extra support, is snug w/o screw) would not catch a thread. I'm assuming that is because it's a universal shoe mount. The lever on the 580 that you usually use to lock it onto the camera would not fully close either. Overall, I was very happy with the kit. It's upgradeable which is great because when I want to upgrade to larger umbrellas, I won't have to buy new everything.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid light kit very portable. This kit is very sturdy and portable. I use the SB800 lights for the setup which makes this product even more useful for on location shooting. The stands are air cushioned which allows for a smooth transition for head shots and product shots. Whether you are a student or a pro, I would recommend this kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent deal for versatility This was my first set of lighting equipment to try and bring my photos to the next level in terms of quality and versatility. I couldn't be happier! The stands are well made, solid and light, the brackets sturdy and useful, and the umbrellas are well put together for the price. The only negative I have is that the stands are light enough to fall if the wind catches them, but A.) with an umbrella, you have a makeshift sail anyway, and B.) they are the standard basic stand, so there's not much to complain about... I would wholeheartedly recommend these for a beginner or pro looking for a deal!l

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Setup I bought this kit to help introduce me to lighting. The stands are strudy and are easy to use. The umbrellas are small but work perfect for headshots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpsive and good quilty First and foremost this is a $ light stand and umbrella kit. Seems some of the other reviews were expecting gold at that price. That being said for $ I am more then impressed with this kit. I'm just getting into off camera lighting and this is very inexpensive way to expand into off camera lighting.I shoot with a Canon MK1 5D a pair of 430ex flashes with cyber sync triggers. The comments about the flash holder being a little flimsy are true. However I used a set of Zebra flash PC adapters and those screwed in place of the hot shoe mounts and are much more stable.The umbrellas are a little small but for a starter kit more then enough.Bottom line this is a great starter kit with some room to grow and a few minor things that could be improved. Well worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Package Deal I bought this as a quick way to assemble a portable hot shoe lighting kit. It came with everything I needed in one package (minus the flash units). Now that I have used it for a few weeks I must say it's really a nice kit for the price. There have been several complaints about the umbrellas being too small but I have not had any issues with their size yet. If one becomes unusable for some reason I'll probably replace it with a 45 but so far there's no reason to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, perfect for two 430EXs... Beter build quality than you might expect for the money. just what I needed. I'm already thinking about getting one of the Impact Background Support Systems. They appear to use the same light stands.
