Westcott Announce New 7’ Parabolic Umbrellas.
Big size; small price!
UK, 21st March 2011 - JP Distribution, the exclusive UK distributor for Westcott – one of the world leaders in professional photography and video lighting equipment - has announced the new range of Parabolic Umbrellas from Westcott.
We are excited to announce the launch of three new parabolic umbrellas to the Westcott line – White Diffusion, Silver and White/Black.  Each umbrella is 7’ (2.2m) and weights only 2.5 lbs (1.13kg). These parabolic umbrellas are constructed using 16 durable fibreglass ribs composite that offer added strength and durability over standard steel or aluminium frames. The custom-designed centre umbrella shaft is engineered with double the thickness of most umbrella shafts. This durable shaft has a standard 7mm tapered tip that fits into most photography equipment.
-          The 7’ White Diffusion Parabolic Umbrella (#4632) is an ideal solution for diffusing large areas of harsh light. 
-          The 7’ Silver Parabolic Umbrella (#4633) offers maximum light reflection.
-          The 7’ White/Black Parabolic Umbrella (#4634) offers a white interior that softens and broadens bounced light with a solid black backing to eliminate any potential for back spill light.
-          All come standard with a heavy-duty nylon carry case with shoulder strap. It is lightweight and ideal for travel.
Each umbrella (#4632, #4633, and #4634) has a very competitive SRP of £110 Inc VAT
