Westcott prepares to launch three new parabolic umbrellas to the market.

TOLEDO, OH – March 9, 2011 – Westcott is 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 fiberglass ribs composite that offer added strength and durability over standard steel or aluminum frames. The custom-designed center umbrella shaft is engineered with double the thickness of most umbrella shafts. This durable shaft has a standard 7mm tapered tip that fits into virtually all photography equipment.

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 comes standard comes with a heavy-duty nylon carry case with shoulder strap. It is lightweight and ideal for travel.
