imho true parabolic reflectors are too hard for photography

Even the sort of silver material used with most deep silver umbrellas is too extreme / hard / reflective for me.

Adorama has recently released a new lineup of deep umbrellas, this time in four materials, one of which is beaded silver :

I haven't tried it, but top marks to Adorama for understanding the value of proposing silver umbrellas in various fabrics.

This one I saw somewhere - it's a really nice instrument I assume... Hopefully Chinese will reverse engineer it )) My copy is not super reflective and is made of ripstop nylon based fabric. The bycicle weel shadows are not too pronounced.
