Designed to help control and shape the light output of any flash or tungsten light source, the pictureline 45” Optical White Satin with Removable Black Cover Umbrella can be easily configured to either bounce or diffuse light. Able to set up and tear down in seconds, this fiberglass-framework umbrella is sturdy but lightweight. The 8mm shaft tapers to 7mm for use in conjunction with European and specialty lights, and all-metal rib tips are finished with an 8-count thread pass. Keep the black cover installed for standard bounce mode, or easily remove the cover for softer, diffused light. This umbrella can be used with hot lights up to 300 watts, and the 45” diameter size is perfect for headshots or product setups.
