Great results and fantastic value
About Me Pro Photographer
Comments about Westcott 220cm (7ft) Parabolic Umbrella - Silver/B:
I bought this to get an affordable para style modifier, I have used it with Profoto Studio heads and with a speed light, it works great with both, but is at its best with a bare bulb head as a speed light is unable to really fill the modifier in the same way, even with a Diffusion cap. That said I would suggest getting one if you only have speed lights as it is still a fantastic piece of kit for the price and once you add the optional diffusion cloth you have a 6 foot indirect soft box for less than £150! One of my favourite modifiers when I have the space to use it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Professional
When it comes to flash, relative size is more than important. It can be critical to getting the shot you want. The bigger the light source the better your flash shots can be. We can't all afford 1200w Profoto kits but this Westcott umbrella is affordable. It can be used with any flash even one as small as a speedlight. Ideally something a bit more powerful but it does work with small units. I have used it successfully with my Elinchrom Quadra flash kit. The only criticism is that the shaft of the brolly doesn't fit the Elinchrom kit so a heavy duty Manfrotto lite-tite was needed. Apart from that it works great. Hugely increasing the number of people I can easily photograph at one time - perfect for weddings and events. I'd love to use it on location but I'm not sure the 20kgs of sandbags I have would be enough to hold it down!
Nice light shaper great value for money
main problem i had was the bowens brolly head screw fitting ( which is pretty flimsy plastic, broke when i bumped into the brolly...as you do! due the leveraged weight on it ..but thats what duct tape is for!worth the money for def

Beautiful quality of light but not 7mm
By Pro Smudger
This is a beautiful soft silver brolly that projects a tight beam with fast falloff. I tried it with Broncolour and it was awesome but I own Elinchrom and it won't fit in the brolly holes as it is actually 7.75-8mm diameter. I was gutted I had to return it but without being as near to on axis as possible it defeats the object of being parabolic. If your kit will take 8mm it is fantastic and produces a contrasty neutral colour light. It is huge- about 170cm diameter (220 is measured over the arc of the brolly) and would catch the wind like a sail but in the studio/ large location it is ideal.
