So the wind has taken care of most of my UM-brellas. At this point I was gonna buy a couple of more convertible ones. Then I thought, why not just get a softbox (I want softer light). Back when I originally searched for these there was like ONE company making them and it looked really cheaply made so I opted for umbrellas. Then I did a search on Ebay and found a few more: http://cgi.ebay.com/ALZO-Large-Soft...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item5ad4d6a9ec I was thinking of getting that, but figured I'd ask OTAP before I pulled the trigger. I want a really large light source and I feel like with a little weight the softbox will also resist the wind better than an umbrella does.
