B2Pro has announced a parabolic umbrella reflector for photographic lighting. The surface of the umbrella is printed with a hexagonal array of red, green, and blue spots:
The manufacturer makes the following claims about the product:
- selective use of color dyes tested to respond to digital CCD sensors
- upon capture, colors appear richer due to the spiked primary color enhancement
- allows vivid color photography that doesn't use gels which only shift the color in one color direction
- the light source adapts to everything from patented strobe bulbs, to tungsten, hmi, and flourescent [sic] for any shooting situation
Are the manufacturer's claims credible? Will such an reflector provide any real advantages to the photographer?
