Westcott 4632 overview

  • 1Description

Photography discussions are full of desert island scenarios; "if you had to choose a single lens or if you had to choose a single light..." Well if you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the white diffusion Westcott 7' White Diffusion Umbrella.

First of all it's a really big, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is double walled for strength, but it tapers to 7mm to fit Elinchrom and other European flash heads. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass.

This white diffusion is the softest version of the umbrella. Used in standard bounce mode, some of the light escapes through the material, slightly raising the ambient light level and lowering contrast while most of it is directed towards your subject. If you want a harder light, turn the umbrella around and aim the convex side at your subject and punch your light source through it. In both modes you can vary the light quality and output by changing the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft.

You can also use this umbrella as a scrim over your subject to diffuse harsh light sources like the sun in situations like fashion catalog work outdoors or at the beach. Any way you use it, with the Westcott 7' Umbrella less is definitely more.

Measures 7.25' (2.2 m) in diameter
White diffusion material allows you to use the umbrella in standard bounce mode or shoot through it like a large soft box
Constructed using 16 durable fiberglass ribs
Double wall shaft is engineered with double the thickness of most umbrellas
7 mm tapered umbrella shaft tip
Carry case with shoulder strap is lightweight and constructed of heavy-duty nylon

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight for such a large umbrella. For the price, this is a pretty good Umbrella. It softens the light more than my smaller soft box. The difference is particularly noticeable when shooting more than one person. The umbrella itself is lightweight, compact to transport, and sturdy. The shaft, however, could stand to be a little stiffer. It flexes somewhat as the umbrella is tilted horizontally (in the direction that throws light horizontally). It is still structurally sound, so I guess this is just the design. I'm very happy with it, though, and would definitely recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have used this as both a diffuser in direct sun and in studio with strobes as a modifier and both times it performed perfectly. I had a client that had one day to shoot, a specific location and a specific time of day. Which of course meant blaring sun out in the open. This turned the most wretched, hard light into a beautiful diffused light I could work with. This was the first umbrella I've used in the studio as I always used soft boxes or beauty dishes and I was impressed with the look of the shots. It's going to come in very handy and considering the price, it's a bargain. It IS large. Probably bigger than you're envisioning in your head, so this isn't something you can leave on it's own outdoors in the wind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product from westcott This is the second 7' westcott umbrella that we have purchased. This white diffusion model will be a nice addition to other modifers that we use in the studio. All work is portrait related and most is indoors. The first unit was a white reflective umbrella. We do like the spread of light for larger groupings and have used it for singles too. very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it! I own the silver version and love it. The shoot thru provides a wonderful light with soft falloff. I also use it outdoors as a diffuser to shade subjects for portraits. Works great! At this price I can't see why anyone wouldn't have one just in case. Works great indoors or out. Just beware of the size indoors and the wind load outdoors. Sand bags are your friend outdoors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite Light I saw Joel Grimes demo this light on a Kelby One training video and knew I had to have one. This is butter soft light.
    Date published: 2016-05-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hot Spot This umbrella is well made, however there is a hot spot in the center, probably because this umbrella is so big. Consequently because the light is more hot in the center, the color is also different when the subject is placed in the center of the umbrella and when they are closer to the sides. I sold this umbrella in the end and use the Wescott Parabolic white reflective umbrella with the black lining and the diffuser in the front.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful soft light! This giant umbrella is incredible for room filling soft light. I can easily recreate soft window light or pop it up on a light stand for beautiful diffused light when shooting portraits outdoors. Totally worth the money. I've got the silver as well, and this one is far more useful for the type of photography that I do. 10/10 would buy again.
