Diffuse and soften harsh light

Diffuse and soften harsh light.

This umbrella is a great portable way to 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.

Collapsible for travel

Collapsible for travel.

Westcott has been building umbrellas for over 110 years and were the first to bring the collapsible telescoping shaft to the photo industry. This all-metal shaft collapses down to only 14.5" making it small enough to fit into a backpack or gear bag.

Solid steel insert

Solid steel insert.

This all-metal framework also offers an all-metal solid steel insert. This insert insures the shaft does not crack or break by tightening down the set screw located on a studio light or speedlight bracket.

7mm Tip

7mm Tip.

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.

All-metal tips

All-metal tips.

No plastic on our products as these tips are constructed of all metal and are finished with an 8-count thread pass providing quality construction and product durability.

Hexagonal shaft

Hexagonal shaft.

The hexagonal design of this umbrella shaft provides 3x the strength of a normal round shaft. Pair this with the solid steel insert, and it's no wonder our umbrella shafts are some of the toughest in the market. Many times once you tighten an umbrella shaft into place, the tightening knob can dent or even split the umbrella shaft. This enhancements eliminate worry and provide the quality you'd expect.

Durable fabrics

Durable fabrics.

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.

Nylon travel case

Nylon travel case.

The included nylon travel case helps protect your umbrella from getting dirty or stained.



In addition, a BONUS PVC style carry case provides for an extra layer of protection from your umbrella getting stained or damaged.
