Profoto Announces Addition of 12 New Umbrellas

Profoto Deep Umbrella, Shallow Umbrella Product Family
From Profoto:
 
On December 2, 2013, Profoto will introduce twelve new high-quality umbrellas in all shapes and sizes, including a deeper, more parabolic version.
 
Umbrellas are the backbone of many photographers’ toolboxes, and understandably so. Umbrellas are affordable, easy to work with and very easy to transport. The downside is that many of them are quite fragile and it can be difficult to control their light spread. Swedish lighting manufacturer Profoto aims to solve both of these issues with the new Umbrella Deep and the Umbrella Shallow.
 
Umbrella Deep is available in two sizes (130cm/51” and 165cm/65”) and in three fabrics: White, Silver and Translucent. All six versions have a deeper, more parabolic shape than the average umbrella. The deeper shape gives the photographer better control of the light spread. It also allows the photographer to focus and shape light by simply sliding the umbrella shaft in its holder.
 
Umbrella Shallow is also available in two sizes (85cm/33” and 105cm/41”) and in three fabrics: White, Silver and Translucent. The most important difference is that Umbrella Shallow is smaller and less parabolic, making it very lightweight and portable.
 
Much effort was invested into making both Umbrella Deep and Umbrella Shallow as reliable and sturdy as possible. The fabrics were selected to provide a superior quality of light over years of heavy-duty use, and the metallic elements have been surface treated to prevent rust and discoloration.
 
The optional Diffusor is also worth mentioning. This is simply pulled over the front of the White or the Silver version to turn it into a large softbox with an even softer and more even light spread.
 
All umbrellas are delivered in a high-quality bag that protects the umbrella during storage and transport.
 
The new Umbrella Deep XL replaces the old Umbrella XL. The new Umbrella Deep L replaces the old Umbrella L. The new Umbrella Shallow M replaces the old Umbrella M. The new Umbrella Shallow S replaces the old Umbrella S.
 
Adorama carries Profoto Deep and Profoto Shallow ubrellas.
