The unique new Angler ParaSail Parabolic Umbrellas allow large umbrellas to be used in tight spaces, and with low ceilings. Ideal for home studios or tight locations.
Available in 45″, 60″, and 88″ versions, the convertible ParaSail Umbrellas are basically 16 sided true parabolic umbrellas, though with the sides clipped to form a more manageable rectangular shape.
This allows even a huge 88″ umbrella to be used in rooms with a regular ceiling height, while still allowing reasonable tilt angles.
The ParaSail Umbrellas can also be aligned vertically in narrow spaces, or just used to create unique lighting effects.
Similar to the once quite popular Photek Softlighter II, the convertible ParaSails are comprised of a translucent white lining, covered with by a reflective silver backing, creating a slightly soft silver effect.
The silver / black backing cover can then also be removed to provide a shoot through umbrella, or a softer white surface for bounce use again.
The ParaSail backing cover is simply held in place by end caps which stretch over the umbrella rod tips.
The ParaSail Umbrellas are also built sturdy with 16 fiberglass ribs and rods, as well as a solid steel 8mm main shaft.
And a protective carry bag is also provide with the ParaSails.
