Product Highlights
  • 20x51" Strip Softbox

The 20x51" Rotalux Strip Softbox is designed for use with a strobe. With fabric not intended for the heat of a continuous light, the 20x51" Rotalux Strip comes standard with a silver interior and a flush front face. The flush mounted front face provides a wider spread of light than a box with a recessed front. It may be used as side light without as much wrap around as a conventional rectangular softbox.

The 20x51" Rotalux Strip Softbox is the right size for full length portraits of children. It may also be used for large still life applications as well.
Size 20 x 51" (50 x 130 cm)
Shape Long Thin Rectangle
Compatibility Elinchrome Lampheads and Monolights Only

      Upgraded my lights from Alien Bees to Elinchrom 400BX. This was the first modifier I used on the new lights and the difference was amazing! This softbox produces very soft light with both diffusers attached and makes skin look smooth. I used it outside during daylight to shoot 3 people and the shots turned out great. Excellent indoors for portraits too! The material is so much better and durable than Alien Bees. So glad I bought this! Comes with a very cool case and when broken down, hardly takes up any room. Set-up may seem a little trickey at first, but after doing more, it's a snap.

      This softbox sets up very quickly and has excellent light quality. The quality is not top-notch but it's good for the price. My main complaint is the lack of a deflector. I ordered two of these from different companies. The one from [...] came with a deflector however the one from B&H did not.

        This soft box is great size for most jobs. Excellent light and the way you can fold up the soft box with the speed ring adds a new dimension to the product.

              I bought this to use as a smaller version of a strip light and full body soft box. When used with the hooded diffuser it is almost prefect for feathering the light.

                  This is a nice light source--easy to set up and break down. Puts out a nice, soft light where you need it, and it's tall enough to use as a secondary light in a full length portrait.

                      very happy with this purchase. i tried the CL brand first and hated the speedring (felt like I risked destroying my strobe every time I removed the softbox), but this is worth much more even factoring in the higher price. it snaps on and off easily.
                      assembly is easy once you realize that you bend the rods in the opposite direction, then rotate them so they go from convex to concave to form the final curved shape.
                      comes with a great carrying case and super portable and light for location shoots.
                      perfect for fashion shots or full length side lighting, great for lighting up a seamless background as well.
                      in short, love it

With the internal ring, it can be rotated after being set up before the diffuser/s are fitted. It is light and lights evenly. If it came with an assistant it would be absolutely perfect! Love it!

                              Difficult to assemble the first time, but after you have the rods installed you do not have to ever remove them, just fold up the softbox and put it in it's case. I read a review somewhere that suggested you hold the softbox by putting your hand thru the front and holding the speed ring with one hand while holding the softbox over your head while inserting the rods with your other hand. This certainly makes it easier to assemble the deeper Elinchrom softboxes.

                              It is very easy to unfold and install on an Elinchrom flash unit, can be rotated as desired. Easy to remove, fold up and store. Beautiful design and excellent quality materials. I especially like the Elinchrom speed ring that come with their softboxes.

                              The quality of light these softboxes creates is fabulous.

                                Upgraded my lights from Alien Bees to Elinchrom 400BX. This was the first modifier I used on the new lights and the difference was amazing! This softbox produces very soft light with both diffusers attached and makes skin look smooth. I used it outside during daylight to shoot 3 people and the shots turned out great. Excellent indoors for portraits too! The material is so much better and durable than Alien Bees. So glad I bought this! Comes with a very cool case and when broken down, hardly takes up any room. Set-up may seem a little trickey at first, but after doing more, it's a snap.

                                    With a soft wash of directional light just where you need it, this softbox produces beautiful results as a compliment to Elinchrom lighting. Perfect for side lighting a full length subject or as a broad hair light for a group of people.

                                      My specialty is high school seniors on location and in the studio. This modifier is used mostly for a side fill, hairlight, or other accent lighting application. It is a very efficient modifier with a tight spread.

                                      Assembly is a breeze, like the other Elinchrom Rotaluxs i own and the design is improved to prevent reflective material separation.

                                      It is a little pricy, but you will never need another one and service is top notch.
