Impact UP-7T overview

  • 1Description

If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella (Translucent White).

First of all it's a really huge, 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. And instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass.

The white translucent version of this umbrella yields the softest light. 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. In addition, an optional diffuser is available for this umbrella, which effectively converts it to a large softbox with just a 1/2 stop loss of output.

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 Impact 7' Parabolic Umbrella less is definitely more.

Measures 7' (2.1 m) in circumference
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
Carry case with shoulder strap is lightweight and durable

    Impact UP-7T reviews

    7' Parabolic Umbrella (White Diffusion) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing rocks! I shot a family of 7 with this umbrella. It was a sunny day and it worked perfect to difuse the light. FYI- if nobody is there to hold, get sandbags. It is an umbrella...it does not take much wind to start tipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, and great to work with I had some Paul C Buff parabolic umbrellas with the on-axis speedring setup, and didn't like to bring them on location, because of the additional setup. I probably should have ordered them with the 8mm shaft instead. So I purchased this 7' Parabolic Umbrella, and have already used it a few times on location. So much easier to set up and take down. No speedring parts to deal with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broad, Soft Lighting I use this for portraiture. Flattering to almost every face with soft, even lighting. I use with Alien Bees 800 w/s monolight in studio. Soft and even lighting for almost any face. Umbrella is directly behind me, with me sitting on a stool in front of it. Yes, if you look carefully at the catch lights, you can see my silhouette in their eyes! Comes with a nice protective case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big and sturdy I used this in combination with a 60 inch soft box to shoot a group of 17 people, worked like a charm. Used as a shoot through on 500 w/s strobes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for shade if used with assistant Great tool for creating shade outdoors, but it must be used with an assistant. Honestly, I'm thinking through whether I could use tent pegs and lines tied to the top of a c-stand to hold it in place against a small breeze. Sand bags can't fight the leverage of an umbrella at the top of a stand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks solid I must say I haven't used it yet but initial impressions are positive. I was debating between this one and Westcott's more expensive alternative. The material is thick enough, not almost translucent like some of my cheap white umbrellas. The fiberglass connecting rods look solid and the umbrella is heavier than I expected. In use, I don't know if the weight will be an issue. It will surely need a very solid support. On windless days I think this umbrella will be very practical in many ways.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wrap aruond light This umbrella has nice wrap around light, easy and quick to set up. With a umbrealla this size sand bags our a assistant is a must even in the smallest breeze.
