Product Highlights
  • Unique Rotalux Speed-Ring
  • Fast Setup, Breakdown

The Elinchrom 39 x 39" (99 x 99 cm) Rotalux Softbox is designed for the exclusive use of Elinchrom flash heads. The featherweight box features a matte-black crinkle exterior with distinctive gray rip-piping and a reflective silver interior. The shoot-through design uses both a removable internal baffle and removable, flush-mounted front face to soften the light.  

Another innovative feature which distinguishes Elinchrom softboxes from others is the lightweight dedicated speed-ring, which utilizes knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the four 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 square 39 x 39" (99 x 99 cm) shape features a large surface area which renders a "wrap-around" light quality especially when used at close range. It is ideal portraiture.

Shape
The 39 x 39" (99 x 99 cm) shape is ideal for head-and-shoulders portraiture, as a hairlight for groups or for reflective products and glassware.
Quick Setup, Breakdown
Lightweight, dedicated speed-ring utilizes knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the four stainless rods which form the frame of the box.

          Excellent light small enough to manage outdoors was big enough for most jobs indoors. Well constructed and I really like the way Elinchrom makes their speed rings to be collapsible.

                    I use this mainly for studio portraits and head shots. The light produced with this box is very soft. The included internal diffuser produces an even softer light. Excellent soft box that is affordable.

                      On location
                      Once you read the directions and give it a few trys, setting this up is a cinch.
                      I have to use an adapter so it will fit my Ranger Quadra. This softbox though doesn't align "straight" on the adapter. Does affect my photography but still annoys me a little.

                          I recently switched to Elinchrom softboxes and love them. I use them with Profoto heads. No more fooling around with speedrings, just open, snap connectors in, and you are ready to go.

                          Purchase the Elinchrom Maxisoft Deflector kit. Remove the inner and outer diffusers and slide silver deflector in. You turn the softbox into a giant beauty dish. The light is spectacular in this configuration.

                            I use this for general purpose studio shots, be in product or people. At first I was baffled by the design after using Alienbee boxes for a while, but I love the design now. So light and sturdy, very nicely made. My favorite part is probably the diffuser itself, the design that went into attaching it is so perfect. This box is perfect, the quality of light you get is worth every penny.

                              Comments about Elinchrom Rotalux Softbox 39 x 39" (99 x 99 cm):

                              I use this softbox on the Style 500 BXRi Compact MonoLight. Setup is pretty easy once you've set it up a couple times. The build quality is great... very sturdy and durable. The carry-case is great quality as well. I really haven't had any problems with it, and haven't found anything that is "bad" about it at all.

                                I use this product in my studio for portrait photography, Well constructed, excellent quality, lightweight speed ring, easy to assemble and I like the way the diffuser attaches to the shell. Easy to install on the Elinchrom Pro RX STYLE lights with new and improved locking ring.

                                I bought this to light wine bottles and it works perfectly. The large size is great and the set-up and break down is simple. The material seems a little thin so I feel the need to be extra careful with it to avoid ripping or tearing the sides.
