I'm looking at two 60" umbrellas and would appreciate advice from those who have experience with either/both.
The Photoflex has fiberglass ribs which I've read are less prone to damage than the metal ribs of the Photogenic. But the Photogenic has a covering over the ribs to minimize the appearance of the ribs. I've also read that the Photogenic white is actually an off-white color.
I'll be using this for portraits. How easy/hard is it to remove the black covering to convert both to shoot through mode? B&H has a $15 rebate on the Photoflex which expires today.
