Westcott 2006 Overview

This is a 45" Westcott Soft Silver Umbrella. 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.

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.

Westcott umbrellas are rated safe for use with lights up to 1000 Watts.
This size is perfect for a 1-2 person head, or head-to-waist shot, or a 4x6 ft product setup.

I usually use white umbrellas in my studio work but I often have to add a touch of direct light to my subject in order to create more contrast. I decided to make a change and work with soft silver umbrella and I'm glad I did. I'm vey satisfied with it and it meets my expectations.

Fantastic; Very Well Made

These are a great value. I purchased them with the B&H education discount. They were a great deal, and I highly recommend them. They are very well made and work just as any silvered umbrella should. The only possible complaint is that the shaft is hollow, so clamps can leave a dent in it. It would be nice if the shaft was solid metal, but that would also make it cost more. These are a great value, but you do get what you pay for with the hollow (but otherwise very well made) shaft.

Where is B&H getting that this umbrella is safe for up to 1000 watts? Westcott's specifications web page for this item says the maximum is 300 watts.
Asked by: Jacob
I have seen other stores say the same thing as B&H rated at 1000 watts. My lights are 640 watt strobes and being a strobe there is no heat to speak of because the flash is so quick. My shoots will typically be around 300 hundred shots with zero issues. Continuous lights or hot lights as they are commonly called might be another thing.
