        Best softbox I have ever used. The quality of the materials stand out from anything else I've used. Elinchrom paid attention to the little things when making this softbox.

          My only regret may be that we didn't go for the 53in version.

          Setup is easy when you FOLLOW the INSTRUCTIONS. And then from there, it folds like an umbrella into the included carry case. Very nice!

          Internal diffuser plus translucent deflector makes for many options for use - to the point of a giant beauty dish.

          Bought this one after returning the Westcott Rapid Box. It works wonderfully well with my Ranger Quadra, produces very pleasing light, is well constructed, and is of typical Elinchrom high quality.

              The set-up is similar to opening an umbrella and then placing the diffusion over the front. Top quality materials and build, really nice diffusion silk.

                    This is the first softbox I purchased many years ago and is my favorite light modifier - its size makes for nice soft lighting (depending on distance)then just mask the front this black foil and gaffers tape to create a strip softbox.

                    Absolutely LOVE it!!!

                      Comments about Elinchrom Rotalux 39" Mini Octa Softbox:

                      My 3 flashes (strobes) are Genesis 200 w/s. They are advertised as (speedring)compatible with Elinchrom. So, I purchased this octa Lite Softbox which comes with the speedring adapter for Elinchrom flashes only. Yes, the speedring works perfectly with my Genesis. The softbox is of excellent quality. I use it for portraits of my grandsons. I'm using this octa as the key light and umbrella for fill light but will be purchasing another Elinchrom soft box to replace umbrella. I did the initial set up by myself. There was a little bit of a learning curve, but not bad. Set up and dismantling now is relatively easy and the soft box stores away nicely in the included compact carrying case. I'm very happy the price also included the speedring.

                              I use this Item as a Location Key Light. Love its portability and easy set up. hard Crinkled silver interior and double baffle are great. Adapting ring connector not so reliable due to its connecting locking mechanism for Profoto.

                              The setup is easy and the product is very well constructed. It attaches firmly and securely to Profoto strobe with optional ring adapter B&H# ELPA .

                              Do not use any other adapters especially B&H # ELOMA, since they do not work.

                              The quality of light is superb. No comparison with an umbrella.

                              Disassembling is a bit more difficult than I expected, but this is the only minor fault.

                              Best product and best price!

                                Overall, this Elinchrom octa bank is great. The setup is a snap and the product is well constructed. While I have only owned it for a few weeks, I can see it lasting a long time. It seems very well constructed.

                                The integrated speedring design is awesome. Just a couple quick snaps and it is ready go. Tear down takes a little longer, but it is still quick. Overall, certainly better than standard octa and speedring.

                                The manual does leave a little to be desired, but it is still easy to figure out. Also, it is not one-handed setup. While still easy, it is not as fast as you would think. In either case, it assembles in just 30 seconds or less. Tear down is about the same.

                                  Bought this along with the 600RX monolight kit by Elinchrom. Have owned other softboxes, including photoflex, lastlolite, etc., and these just exude quality. Very easy to put together. Great consistent quality of light. Comes with high quality carrying bag also.

                                  Highly recommended.

                                      This is a replacement for an older version of the octa lite bank. This softbox works well in many situations, including smaller settings where space is a premium. It produces a great quality of light, and the two diffusers add for some flexibility. The round catch-light in the eyes is also a nice bonus, and the fact that it folds up like an umbrella is helpful for a quick setup. Definitely a must-have for any serious photographer.

                                      I purchased this softbox to provide a main light for an upcoming event (Breakfast with Santa) where I was taking lots of pictures of children. I am quite satisfied with this softbox. I had purchased the 53" and thought it was too difficult to setup, while the 39" was much easier. I needed a portable softbox for remote work. All I can say is its exceptional.
