Does the job – 90cm Studio Flash Reflector Umbrella with Swivel Stand (Silver) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Stand has good quality. It fixes flash firmly and has enough levels of adjustment. Umbrella reflects a lot of light.
Cons:
Umbrella's tube is soft and has thin walls. It can be accidentally bent with ease. Stand has tendency to deform umbrella's tube because of it construction - screw that fixes umbrella contacts it with edge. Some user advised to insert something inside tube to prevent it deformation.
Other:
Umbrella doesn't provide enough tension to reflecting cloth in open state. So flash reflection is provided by 8 reflecting segments, each of them is inside-bent. This don't result in serious image quality degradation - but that thing isn't pro.
Bottomline:
Good for enthusiast on tight budget. If you'll be cautious, it wouldn't fail fast.
