Westcott 4634 Overview

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.

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

is this heat resistant? will it withstand mounting in front of a 650w fresnel?
Asked by: Francis
According to Westcott, the maximum wattage hot light (tungsten, halogen, HMI, etc.) that is recommended for use with the Westcott 7' Umbrella (White / Black) would be a 300 watt light fixture. As such, no, I would not recommend the usage of the ARRI 650W Plus Tungsten Fresnel with the Westcott 7' Umbrella (White / Black).

It doesn't actually say its parabolic, its it average and not so shallow umbrella, but it is not a deep parabolic, correct? I am comparing it to Godox deep parabolic umbrella, and Godox is winning!
Asked by: Yehia
A parabola is just a U-shape, and you can see the U shape from the side of this umbrella. It is not a deep parabolic umbrella, however.
