Profoto Umbrella Deep and Umbrella Shallow

Profoto has unveiled twelve new high-quality umbrellas in two distinct varieties - Umbrella Deep and Umbrella Shallow. Umbrella Deep is available in two sizes (130cm and 165cm) and in three fabrics: White, Silver and Translucent. The deeper, more parabolic shape will provide photographers with better control of light spread, Profoto says, and focusing and shaping light will be possible by sliding the umbrellas shaft in its holder. Umbrella Shallow is available in the same fabrics and in two sizes (85cm and 105cm). An optional diffuser can be used with the white and silver versions to them into large soft boxes by softening and evening out the light spread. www.profoto.com/uk
