Westcott 4634 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 Westcott 7' White/Black 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 umbrella's 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. You can also vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer light or for a longer distance throw. With the Westcott 7' Black/White Umbrella less is definitely more.

Measures 7.25' (2.2 m) 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 (White / Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 111.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great, super-soft light modifier I bought to shoot tabletop product for a very particular client. They specifically wanted one shadow on the knobs of their stringed musical instruments. this delivered the best, super-soft shadows with very nice graduations & fall-off. It will work as well for portraits and small groups. I like the single source effect as we are programmed to enjoy the naturalness due to our sun being the ultimate source in our collective consciousness. This makes a nice substitute for the solar effect, in a controlled, studio environment... buy it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than expected This 'little' accessory is a really useful big-light source. It is extremely packable and feels very durable. However, the focal point of the umbrella is exactly at the end of the center rod and hanging it at that point puts a lot of weight on the swivel (plus it got me pretty worried about how it would hold its own weight). I would NEVER use this thing outside because of this one fact. As far as indoor use goes though, I love it. It is much more efficient than the huge light banks and when I don't need that rectangular highlight, it allows me to make some really huge, soft light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, I would buy this product again I have been looking at this umbrella for months but coud not make up my mind whether to buy the silver or the white. I use it as my 24 hour window light because it is so soft. I also use it for high key photos. I hang two pieces of rip stop nylon (which I also bought from B+H) on a frame that I made out of pvc, that creates a high key bacground. It very easy to work with even though it's so large. I only use it indoors. I had read other buyers say that the shaft was bending from the weight of the umbrella, but this doesn't bother me too much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its Raining Light! Very nicely made. Love the case. Wonderful light. Not a true parabolic though. But it would be hard to design a parabola without knowing where the foci is. Especially if you have multiple sources of light, like what I'm doing with 3 speed lights. So its better off that this is not a true parabolic umbrella. At least for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Light We tested this umbrella in the studio for the first time after first shooting a headshot with a 4X6 Softbox. You thought the light couldn't get any better than the softbox? Wrong! The headshot using the 7' Parabolic Umbrella was amazing!!! There was no question which was better for soft, even light. You better have a good supporting bracket for it, though. Very large and heavy. The Bowens Gemini 500R umbrella bracket SUCKS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic light modifier Creates really beautiful soft shadows, especially with the front diffuser. Use it for backlighting - by bouncing light from it through another large diffuser - and for dance/other portraits. Modified it so it can be supported from behind the umbrella via another rod which is attached to the Westcott rod protruding through the umbrella skin. This allows me to suspend umbrella from the ceiling. Simon GBDANCESTARS.COM

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let's Talk About Light I have used this product for multiple photo shoots and the light is amazing! I love the way the light wraps around the model. The product does not weigh much at all...despite its huge size. It is extremely easy to set up and take down. If you can open and close a regular umbrella, you are good to go. I own the other two Westcott 7' Umbrellas and this is my favorite. I've used this product with the diffuser. I would not use this product outdoors unless it is securely weighted down or held by an assistant. Any bit of wind will make this umbrella act like a giant sail on a sailboat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly light I am kicking myself that I stuck with my 3x4' soft box for so long and didn't get this gorgeous thing. I can now shoot at night in my studio space if I want! Simplest set-up ever... (Can you open an umbrella?) and tremendous value for such gorgeous light. SO happy to see fiberglass rods as well. Great quality. Love it!
