About Me Photo Enthusiast
I have used this kit a few times since receiving it about six weeks ago and it has worked well supporting speed lights. The stand seems sturdy and is easy to set up. The brollies are difficult to fit back into the supplied nylon storage bags though and the black outer cover fittings are not very robust. Ok for the price. Stand and bracket 5-star, brolly 3-star!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great Value Brolly Kit
I bought one of these a few months ago and was so pleased with the quality I have just bought another. I have only used it indoors to date. The stands are good quality and quite sturdy and the umbrella holder is metal rather than plastic. I use them with Canon Speedlites and they work well and produce pleasing lighting. The Black cover is useful for when you want to reflect the light but it is a bit of a pain if you need to keep putting it on and off regularly. All in all though a good product from a reputable manufacturer at a good price
With care it's an excellent product
About Me Semi-pro Photographer
A high quality light modifier from a reputable manufacturer at a reasonable price.It produces beautifully soft light when used with SB800's as a bounce umbrella. I have to date only used these indoors where they do exactly what is expected. They are very light and portable and a very convienient way of getting great results from small strobes.The black cover can be quite a job to replace when using the umbrella as a shoot through, although BlueTak in the ends secures it to the spokes but isn't ideal. I therefore will purchase a third unit specifically for use as a shoot through and leave the black cover off or keep as a spare.

Great Bit of kit and good construction
By Media Art Design
Great bit of kit, gives a good even light when bouncing I havent yet shot through the umbrellas The stands are of good construction and dont wobble, It would have been good if they had put rubber feet on the stands but this is just a minor gripe. The only thing I found wrong with 1 of my 2 kits was there was a bit of plastic missing that stops the umbrella from being over extended when opening the umbrella. Looking forward to long use of these bits of kit.

Excellent stand kit
About Me Professional
Used in two shoot in Trinidad and Miami. Very light. Travelled in my medium suitcase. Extend well over head height and felt sturdy inside. Would need sandbags to anchor outside. Brackets are very well made. No trouble unhooking the black off the umbrella and reattaching it at the end of the shoot. Umbrellas large enough for full length boudoir shoot. Bought two..

I use this set up for my home studio for use with Canon speedlites.The brolly and stand have excellent build quality.The brolly also has a removeable black backing so you can use the white brolly to shoot through.I would definately order another.

I'm very pleased with this. I use it with all my Portraits shots with a Canon 430EX II flash gun. You can shoot the flash through the umbrella or bounce it and so you have lots of different options to choose your lighting. Its very easy to set up and everything is very light. I will be getting another.

Bought this Kit for use with a 580Ex11 the hole for mounting umbrella is not angled. Therefore the Flash gun cannot be pointed at the centre of the Umbrella. [...]
