This umbrella is a great portable way to diffuse and soften light from a flash or strobe. In addition, it can be used as a bounce light source. Out of all the colored bounce umbrella's, this one will produce an image with the least contrast and the softest light because the majority of hard light is eaten up in the white slightly reflective material. For any on-location photographer, umbrellas are a great choice as they set up and tear down in seconds.
This quality diffusion fabric is supported by a durable fiberglass frame, providing flexibility and strength without excessive weight.
The shaft is finished off with a 7mm tapered tip allowing for use in conjunction with many European and specialty lights on the market. Some of these lights have a 7mm catch pin making them difficult to find modifiers that will work with them correctly. Our catch pin insures a perfect fit with almost all of the most popular lights. Tips are constructed of all metal and are finished with an 8-count thread pass providing quality construction and product durability.
For over 112 years, Westcott has been working with some of the finest fabric mills worldwide. Our fabrics are produced using high quality materials and offer a standard one-year warranty against manufacturers defects. A PVC style carry case provides for an extra layer of protection from your umbrella getting stained or damaged.
The Westcott Original!
Since 1899, Westcott has been an industry-leading innovator of umbrellas. The inventor of the fiberglass umbrella frame, Westcott has continuously strived to develop the best umbrellas on the market. From improved framework to superior fabrics, Westcott's professional collapsible, parabolic, and standard umbrellas prove to be the essential modifier for all photographers.
All of the current Westcott Pro Umbrellas (except for collapsible models) feature a lightweight fiberglass frame. These frames are strong and resist breaking while also providing flexibility. On many styles, this strength is backed by a solid steel center shaft, which provides a solid center for worry-free mounting. This steel shaft is 7mm-the most common umbrella mounting size for stands and brackets.
From satin diffusers to highly-reflective surfaces, all Westcott Umbrellas are designed with high-quality fabrics. Soft and metallic silver umbrellas are laminated for protection. Optical diffusion umbrellas are built with white satin. Westcott places high importance on using quality materials, which ensures that the best fabrics are utilised for reflecting, softening, and diffusing light sources. All versions are available in a variety of sizes and in bundles-each featuring the same emphasis on precision craftsmanship.
Collapsing down to 14.5", Westcott Pro Collapsible Umbrellas create large light sources while still allowing for efficient storage and travel. These innovative modifiers can slip directly into a gear bag and are protected with an included nylon case.
