Did you know that you can easily turn your Profoto Umbrella into a softbox and get a soft light on location, without carrying any extra weight? All you need is to mount the diffuser on to the umbrella, and you will transform it into a softbox within seconds.

- Very easy to use.
- Made with heat resistant, high-quality fabrics.
