Shape up your lights in a precise manner by using the Westcott 7-ft Silver Parabolic Umbrella. It is made of 16 durable fiberglass ribs and the double wall shaft is engineered to provide 2 times more thickness than most umbrellas. The fabric cloth has a black and a silver side. The black side ensures the light falls on your subject, rather than through the umbrella. The silver side is slightly cooler than a conventional white umbrella in terms of color temperature, and focuses the light into a soft, but narrower, field. For portability, you can transport this umbrella in the included lightweight carry case, which has a shoulder strap and is made of heavy-duty nylon. Also, this umbrella features a 7-mm tapered shaft tip to accommodate the Elinchrom and other European brands of flash heads.
