This strobepro parabolic is massive, quick and easy to set up and produces lovely soft light. It folds away into a nice compact sleeve that's easy to take with you. I love it. Just be aware that if you have a small studio space you may even find them too large. They really are big!
I found it as easy to setup as my other large umbrellas, with the added benefit of the diffuser to turn it into a large octabox.
I wish the diffusion would clip onto the umbrella. When mounted vertically above a table top the diffusion just comes off. Velcro will solve this but I would like to see this built into the product in the future.
Can you please give the store a call? We detected a small batch of diffusers that were a tiny bit to big and caused this issue. We have replacements on the way and will change this for you at no charge which will fix the problem. Thanks
Excellent construction and beautiful light. Definitely worth the price.
