question

Two questions here. I work in a studio setting with 500 W daylight bulbs. Will this stand the high heat generated by the bulbs? Also, with the light be distributed enough to light an entire person, standing, or objects the size of a car if I use two units?
Asked by: Rebecca D.
Hi Rebecca. I use profoto D1 and B1 strobes versus continuous light. So, I'm not sure the heat rating of this umbrella. If you're shooting with fluorescent or LED lights, I would guess you'll be ok. If you're using anything that generates a lot of heat, I'd check with the manufacturer for what it can handle regarding heat. As far as coverage, I use this all the time for large groups as my fill light and it works great. You get a lot of diffusion for the price.

question

Is this gonna fit my elinchrom strobes?
Asked by: Avrumie K.
I expect it would fit. It is really the same shaft that comes on any umbrella. It produces a beautiful soft light due to the large six foot diameter.

question

Whats the most durable tiltable mounting bracket to use this on?
Asked by: Denise R.
This is a great umbrella...it's heavy for the lighter weight brackets. I use it with Profoto D1 Strobes, which hold it well. I'd suggest a heavy duty bracket for it. You'll be disappointed if you cut corners on a light duty one
