Westcott 4633 overview

  • 1Description

If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the silver Westcott 7' Silver 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. Insert the shaft into the tilter bracket below the Elinchrom head. Older models or other brands may require separate purchase of an inexpensive umbrella mount. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass and the fixed black backing ensures that all of the light output is on your subject instead of through the umbrella. The silver interior is slightly cooler in color temperature than a white umbrella and tends to focus the light into a soft but narrower field. You can also vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer light. This silver version is ideal for throwing the light over a long distance. Two of them, for instance could light an entire auditorium or a large graduating class. With the Westcott 7' Silver Umbrella less is definitely more.

Measures 7.25' (2.2m) in diameter
Constructed using 16 durable fiberglass ribs
Double wall shaft is engineered with double the thickness of most umbrellas
7mm tapered umbrella shaft tip
Carry case with shoulder strap is lightweight and constructed of heavy-duty nylon

    7' Umbrella (Silver) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 142.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from BIG This thing is big. But the open front diameter is not 7', it is 6' when opened (assuming the 7' is measured around the back curve) The shaft might be reinforced but it doesn't feel like it when mounting to a stand and adjusting angles. The shaft flexes and the whole umbrella sways in a manner that makes it feel like it will not hold its own weight when connected towards the end of the shaft. Has not been an issue yet, just doesn't feel as robust as I would expect to support something of this size and weight. I have no comparison to tell if it is more robust feeling than other large umbrellas.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This needs a sixth star! This a product that does everything the manufacturer claims and more. The spectral light quality is amazing, the light spread comes out even and beautiful, and there is little to no light spill behind it. I was a little wary of umbrella bar itself. You can be sure is as strong as Wescott claims. Expect it to bend a little - a 7ft umbrella has some heft - but nothing to worry about. Be very aware of wind when you're setting this umbrella up & always use sand bags. I left one window open in the studio and that alone was enough to rattle and shake the stand. Just remember, you're using the child of a sail and a parachute. Try not to go airborne!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Modifier I have many different types of softboxes and modifiers, but this one is top dog now. Once you break it out of the box it's as easy as opening an umbrella. The quality of the light that you get with this 7' beast is unbelievable. I also have a 70 octabox that was my favorite piece of gear, but once I set this modifier up there was no looking back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Get it! A wonderful piece of equipment that's up to Westcott's usual superb quality.As everyone says, this dude is huge but that's what you wanted isn't it? Throws beautiful light.Only caution is that this umbrella needs a serious light stand under it. I tried attaching it to my Elinchrom BRX 500's and using the aux. umbrella mount. It put so much stress on it I thought for sure that it was going to break so I attached it to an articulating umbrella holder. Works great.The day after it came in I had a night wedding with 5 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen, and obviously a bride and groom. Lighting 12 people at 6pm in winter is a tall order for almost any modifier. This umbrella was up to the task.Hard for me to believe that anyone wouldn't get $ of benefit from it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light This is a great option for someone who needs a nice classic soft beauty light. And far less expensive than some of the alternatives out there. In addition, you can use on any lighting system. I often find myself in different cities where I am using a different lighting system, and this fits them all. Super light weight and durable. This is the classic parabolic contrasty, yet soft light. it's the perfect mix of a beauty dish and a soft box. As well as adding a nicer highlight in the eye. This could also be used for a soft natural light feel...all in all, a beautiful well rounded light modifier...and for the price, it's unbeatable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wescott Parabolic Beautiful piece of gear. It arrived in a hard tube, to protect it during transportation. It came assembled, and was no problem at all setting up. The 7mm tapered tip, does not fit the Elinchrom native umbrella sleeve, so initially I had to use the 3'rd party mount, which is a little further down the light fitting. This unfortunately does not centralize the parabolic to the light though. I ended up re-drilling out the native sleeve to accommodate the shaft, seen as though I dont use any other Elinchrom modifiers which use this fitting. I tried it during a shoot, for the first time over the weekend, and the results are spectacular. The product build is hardy, and is a very high quality. I would recommend this modifier to anyone, whom has the space to use it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great light, poor construction If you want a lot of light this is great. It is huge! The fiberglass rods are strong and flex well. The rod that extends from the center is advertised as being double walled for strength. This is only half true. It is only double walled from about the center to the end. The top half is hallow and can bend easily. Westcott does not stand behind this product and responded with we had to find a way to cut costs statement. One fall and this item is done. Used it once in a warehouse with sandbags and it was knocked over by accident. Cost is $50 to repair from Westcott.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for small family portraits I love it. I was able to take excellent family portraits with only one light source. The silve reflection off the parabolic umbrella provided very flattering glow to my family and friends faces during our Christmas photoshoot. Even though I was skeptical at first because I only had one source of light. The parabolic umbrella in silve lining really came through for me. I also like how it's light and easy to transport. I was able to carry the umbrella with me why flying home. It was small and compact which fits in the overhead bin on the planes. I would recommend this for any enthusiast and professional who had minimal space while traveling.
