Profoto 100318 overview

  • 1Description

Especially popular with fashion shooters, the Profoto Giant Parabolic Reflector is a unique light shaper that is frequently called an umbrella but it is quite a different thing. A parabolic umbrella has many more support spokes to make the source truly round, which works in conjunction with the key design factor of depth. Together they render light output which has a wrap around quality due to its large diameter but is also crisp thanks its unique focal point.

More like a 6' (180 cm) beam of light as compared to an umbrella's bounced light, the focus can be adjusted for harder or softer output while containing spill, by swapping out the center pole to locate the flash closer or further away from the back of the reflector. Optional 1/3 and 1 stop front diffusers allow you to produce soft light comparable to an Octabox if desired.

  • Creates a giant light source
  • Extra deep, true parabolic shape
  • The focus can be adjusted by exchanging the center poles
  • Designed to withstand years of professional use
  • Can be folded to save valuable studio space
  • Optional front diffuser available for a softer light spread

    Giant Parabolic Reflector, Silver - 6' (180 cm) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but absolutely wort the price Being (so far) the only fashion/commercial photographer this side of the Alps that owns the 6' Giant I must admit to being discretely in love with it. It performs extremely well in any situation, be it shooting for Playboy in the studio or doing outdoor fashion editorials. THIS IS THE LIGHT SHAPING TOOL YOU HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR ALL THIS TIME! Amazing wrap-around light if you put it 6' or even a bit further from the subject. A word of advice though - we are talking about the 20-section Giant Reflector, not the 10-section umbrella-style Giant (not called Reflector by Profoto), which is notably cheaper and gives a different shape of light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply perfect I use this modifier for fashion and editorial work. Simply put, it is an amazing and versatile modifier for studio and location work. The quality is superb as is to be expected from Profoto. The material of the unit is thicker than expected and is over-built throughout with attention to stress points. The mod comes with a very well made case for transport. Combined with a wind-up stand this is perfectly usable in breezy locations. My go to lighting.
