So normally at this price I am expecting junk cause these things start at double the price and go up at most small camera outfits. This does the job it's supposed to do, and can't complain about the construction. It is a lightweight umbrella. If you are going to try to bend it, then it bends end of story, light weight get it. I would not call it flimsy by a long shot. Overall impression, yeah I would buy this again in a heartbeat, and it takes nice soft shots with my Nikon speed-lights, and handles the warmth from my Ari Tungstens (from not too close) just fine.

This came as part of a kit. It seems pretty cheap. It uses soft plastic bits to hold the umbrella's cloth onto the frame. It seems like in this case, a more sturdy version from a reliable brand might not be all that much more expensive, but as an add on to a kit, it seems fine.

    Comments about Impact White Translucent Umbrella (33"):

    I was looking for an umbrella to replace the one from my other impact kit. I didn't measure my old one and this one is a little smaller. But it worked great and was a little better quality than my other one. Great product for the price!

    Good product

    Comments about Impact White Translucent Umbrella (33"):

    This product is good, although I do wish it came with an attachment system I guess its sold separately, good thing I have ways do get around this minor obstacle other than that it diffuses light as intended just make sure you have a mode of attachment before purchase.

      Buy this umbrella for off camera flash purpose. It is small, but good enough and cheap, probably not suitable to be used outdoor.

        it does the job beautifully. such a simple fix, soften your light for portraits, a great value! I thought everything was supposed to be costly when it came to photography, NOT. beautiful addition to lighting equipment.

              Solid quality umbrella with a very sheer fabric that works well for lighting thru. There is a very slight cool cast to the light when used this way.

              Softens the light nicely, but not as reflective as a silver lined umbrella. If you want soft, even light then this is a good option.

              These get the job done, of course if they bump into anything while they're open they'll likely break.

              Use this with a Tota light.

                The umbrellas came in the tungsten two-flood light kit. The umbrellas are nice. The kit overall is nice. Not expensive and works great. Good for any beginner, or anybody in general. Easy to set up, and easy to use.

                I use these with 650w hot lights. Mostly I use them directly to create a soft box like effect. You could bounce the light as well to get a bit more light though slightly more harsh.These produce nice round catch lights.They don't take a spill very well on a windy day. We have a lot of these with broken and bent rods because crew members don't use a sand bag or two. Cheap to replace but the $$ adds up quickly!

                Adequate for occasional use. These umbrellas are not heavy duty. They are a bargain if you handle things carefully.
