I am looking to buy an umbrella for portrait photography (single portraits).
If possible to be cheap and quality would be great
What do you think about that one:

I am going to use my Sunpak 433D as a slave flash on a tripod, so any recommendations on optical trigger and ubrella adapter would be appreciated.
Is there any way to fit the flash with mounted optical hot-shoe tigger and the umbrella on one tripod without buying a light stand?

I've used several softboxes & various colored/sizes of umbrellas, but the 60" Eclipse ROCKS! It's my favorite fill light for portraits...full length, 3/4 or just headshots! In the shot below, I used my Eclipse mounted on a light stand with a Flash hot-shoe adapter mounted on top (I've never seen a flash adapter made for a regular tripod & light stands are much cheaper...unless you don't already have one), a Vivitar 285HV triggered (off of my main strobes flash) wirelessly with a Wein Peanut. You can also use an Interfit infrared trigger on camera: http://www.adorama.com/PAIIRT.html
