    Rotalux Deep Octabox 70 cm (27.5")

    EL26650

    The ideal softbox on location.

    The Deep Octa 70 cm is an excellent crispy and direct light when used without the internal and external diffusers. Perfect for beauty and fashion. The narrow shape reduces the spread of light and offers sharper shadows compared to standard sized octagonal softboxes.

    Another innovative feature which distinguishes Elinchrom softboxes from others is the lightweight dedicated speedring, which utilizes knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the stainless rods which form the frame of the box, to the ring. This allows easy assembly of the box in a de-tensioned state. The user then simply pivots the sockets 90 degrees until they lock into place to tension it for use. As a further convenience Elinchrom provides a durable, dot-patterned nylon case with a flat bottom designed to hold the de-tensioned Rotalux without dissembling it. The 27.5" (70 cm) Deep Octa shape features a large surface area which renders a "wrap-around" light quality especially when used at close range. It is ideal portraiture.


    Quick Setup, Breakdown

    Lightweight, dedicated speedrings utilize knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the 8 stainless rods which form the frame of the box.

    $289.95More infoAdd to cart

    Rotalux Deep Octabox 100 cm (39")

    EL26648

    This narrow shaped Deep Octa reduces the spread of light and offers sharper shadows compared to standard sized octagonal soft boxes. It provides a very even diffused light over the front screen and a very direct crisp light when used without diffusers to give a beauty dish look.


    The Elinchrom Rotalux Deep OctaBox 39" diameter softbox emits a more focused soft light than most OctaBoxes when used with its included inner and outer diffuser. With either, or both of the diffusers removed, this box acts like a super-large reflector for your flash head. Another innovative feature which distinguishes Elinchrom softboxes from others is the lightweight dedicated speedring, which utilizes knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the stainless rods which form the frame of the box, to the ring. This allows easy assembly of the box in a de-tensioned state. The user then simply pivots the sockets 90 degrees until they lock into place to tension it for use.The 39" (100 cm) Deep Octa shape features a large surface area which renders a "wrap-around" light quality especially when used at close range. It is ideal portraiture.


    The 39" (100 cm) Deep Octa shape is ideal for head-and-shoulders portraiture for a group of people, as a hairlight for groups or for reflective products and glassware. Because of it's deep shape when the light comes out it appears more "punchy".


    Lightweight, dedicated speedrings utilize knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the 8 stainless rods which form the frame of the box.

    Indirect Litemotiv Octa 190cm / 75"

    EL28000

    The Octa is ideal when using the reflection method of light distribution and as a result the Octa does give remarkably even illumination over the front cloth. Consequently, it can be used very close to the subject giving particularly soft results. For crisp beauty shots with higher contrast, the external diffuser can be removed.

    The Indirect Litemotiv includes the tilthead, 360° rotating system, internal & external diffusers and carrying bag, already pre-mounted.
