Westcott 2005 overview

  • 1Description

The 45" Optical White Satin Diffusion Umbrella from Westcott is a light modifier that exhibits wide coverage, low contrast and a substantial boost in the ambient light level. Sturdily built with fiberglass rods and a metal shaft, this umbrella is well-suited to portraiture, providing fill light and high key effects. It also has the ability to become a shoot-through modifier. Instead of traditionally bouncing your light source inside the umbrella, turn it around and aim the convex side of the umbrella toward your subject. While still diffused, you'll get wide coverage and a snappy look with more contrast.

Easy to Mount
Most studio lights include a built-in umbrella receptacle for instant mounting. There are also a variety of mounting brackets available for speedlights with adjustable and tiltable options for precise positioning.
Modify any Light
The umbrella can soften, reflect, and shape whatever light source that you use.

    Westcott 2005 reviews

    Optical White Satin Diffusion Umbrella (45") is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impresseive quality Westcott never disappoints. I ordered a couple of these umbrellas from B&H website. Got them super fast with free shipping...i think in 2 days. The quality is awesome. Even before using one of these umbrellas you can feel the quality just holding it in your hand. The metal shaft/rod feels heavy and solid...other umbrellas i've used have a hollow rod. The construction of this umbrella in general is also very good with fiber glass spokes and rounded off metal tips on the outer edge. The price is not bad either. I am impressed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Results This is a replacement. The first suffered wind damage and thankfully took the blow and protected my flash and PW in the fall. The shaft of my prior umbrella (same product) was hollow and broke with the fall. The shaft appears to be solid or thicker with the one I just received. That's an upgrade. The prior umbrella had a soft cap for a point, this one has a metal point. I will have to be more careful with it in positioning it near subjects. That's a drawback. Overall very nice even light difussion and sturdy product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portrait/fashion light I bought 2 and used the main as a shoot through and the fill as a bounce both from the same side. It might be the nicest most forgiving light I have ever used for full lenth and 3/4 portraits in a home. Very fast to set up and little power required to use. I saw they were cheap enough to try something new. I'm going to be buying bigger and smaller ones for different effects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, I will buy more ! I looked around for a white umbrella & found out most umbrellas can't take more than 500 watts of flash or continuous power ! BUT this Westcott 45 optical satin white umbrella can take 1000 watts ! So if you have 1000 watt quartz halogens or do a lot of flashes at a photo session, this umbrella will not discolor, it stays satin white. Great product for bounce or shoot thru ! 99% of the time I use it as a shoot thru to get those soft lighting effects. I would buy it again & again !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Easy cheap shoot through umbrella... that is what I was looking for. I have damaged similar umbrellas when they tip over in the wind outside, therefor I do not like to spend a lot on my shoot through umbrellas. This fit the bill perfectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Product, Good Price Westcott makes a great product and this 45 umbrella is no exception. The light is diffused well. The build quality is fine. I'd say better than the any of the other comparable umbrellas I've seen. Also consider the 43 collapsable Wescott if portability is an issue. Perfect for head shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality umbrella!! I bought two types of umbrellas. Bought that zumbrella. That garbage broke on the 2nd use. It really is very translucent but worthless as far as quality goes. Only two uses out of it. I bought some auction quality umbrellas, those outlasted that BS Zumbrella!!!! Bought this umbrella, is not as translucent but is far more heavy duty! I really like the quality of this umbrella. Highly recommend it to the folks that are looking into buying a high quality white umbrella hands down I rate it 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large, Good to shoot through or bounce Pretty low price but they work well so far. Portraits, two-light+two-umbrella formals for weddings, product shots (shoot through). Very bright 'optical white' umbrellas work well for what I've done with them so far, and don't cost an arm and a leg.
