These dual-purpose umbrellas feature a white interior surface backed by a removable silver fabric with a black backing which provides a soft, but highly efficient bounced light source. For close-up lighting, the silver/black backing can be removed, allowing you to get closer to the subject while lighting through the umbrella. Unique ten-panel design provides maximum reflectance and a circular pattern of light.

Review 1 for Calumet 46" (117cm) Silver/White Umbrella
The only one I use
PostedOctober 11, 2012
from Phila, PA
After trying one of these umbrellas years ago I think they are the best on the market. Wait for them to go on sale and they are even better. I don't use the different features, removing layers etc but the light quality is just fantastic. Good direction and just enough diffusion.
Pros: Durable, Solid Operation

Review 2 for Calumet 46" (117cm) Silver/White Umbrella
This is reflective, shoot threw, octobox, diffuser in one.
I brought one of these because I was in a rush. I thought it was too pricey but after I seen everything that it can do it was worth every penny. From a reflective umbrella to a octobox diffuser. It is a multipurpose umbrella and it's easy to break down and put up. I shoot on location a lot and this comes in handy in more ways than one. You will get many uses from this one umbrella. I just hope Calumet doesn't go up on the price after seeing this. Just keep in mind the construction is like any other umbrella but you will get your moneys worth.
Pros: Lightweight/Portable, Many Useful Features, Good for Experts, Fast, Easy Setup, Ergonomic/Comfortable, Good for Beginners
