    Hello,
    I am looking for a well made strong umbrella that will hold up to a couple of bumps.
    My intended use for it will be on a portable setup that an assistant will be carrying around (most likely a Lumedyne head on a light stand minus the legs of the stand). Mainly for wedding and event work.
    Does such a thing exist?
    thanks!

    I don't really think so but that's why people use umbrellas if they get damaged they aren't too expensive to replace like a soft box is or something like that. I know mine was recently knocked over by some wind and it's out of commission now haha. Oh well.

    check out Neil Turner's excellent blog at
    dg28.com - photographer education

    and look under equipment. He's a big fan of Lumedynes and the Lastolite Umbrella Box.
