The Umbrella XL Silver creates a smooth but yet distinctive light, which allows the user to illuminate an entire person or even small groups with just a single light source. It fits on all Profoto flash heads and monolights. It can also be mounted on the Cine Reflector, and thereby be used with Profoto's line of continuous light sources.
Large umbrellas are useful Light Shaping Tools for portrait-, people- and fashion photography. They create a smooth but yet distinctive light, which allows the user to illuminate an entire person or even small groups with just a single light source.
Profoto’s new Umbrella XL Silver has a diameter of 165 cm, and it fits onto all Profoto flash heads and monolights. It can also be mounted onto Profoto’s Cine Reflector, and can thereby be used with the company’s new line of continuous light sources – ProDaylight Air and ProTungsten Air.
The Umbrella XL Silver has a slightly parabolic shape, allowing the light distribution to be changed by simply sliding the shaft inside the flash head. In addition, the light spread can be adjusted by moving the Zoom Reflector back and forth.
An optional front diffuser is available, which practically converts the Umbrella XL Silver into a fully functioning Octabox. (The front diffuser can not to be used with continuous light sources.) An optional stand adapter is also available, which allows the photographer to mount the umbrella onto a light stand, or use it with former Profoto heads or even with products form other brands. All umbrellas come in a rugged transport bag.
