Swedish studio lighting manufacturer Profoto have released a shallow parabolic modifier called the Umbrella XL.
165 centimetres (65 inches) in diameter, the umbrella mounts like a conventional umbrella. It comes in silver, white reflective and white translucent versions. White front diffusers are also available, turning the Umbrella XL into a makeshift softbox.
In the USA, pricing for one umbrella is expected to be around US$300 – several times the cost of other brand versions. Do you think the Umbrella XL will be worth the premium? Let us know in the comments below.
