      I purchased the Elinchrom Ranger RX Speed AS 1100 Watt/Second Kit for $[$]. I have been completely satisfied with all other Elinchrom products that I own. This however misses the mark. The spring loaded stopper clip broke the second time I opened the umbrella. After some research I found that this seems to be a common complaint with this product. I called both B&H and Elinchrom to see if I could return it for credit towards the purchase of a Midi Octa soft box. I was disappointed to find out that because it was purchased as part of a kit that I could only return the umbrella, or the entire kit. So, now I have a umbrella that I'm afraid is going to have the same problem.

        Wanted beauty-dish type light for women's portraiture and just love the soft soft clean light I get with this kit on my elinchrom monolight. Very easy, very portable even light.

          I bought this for my Elinchrom 500. It's very very fast to open up and install which is what I wanted as opposed to assembling something more complicated. So far I don't see anything not great about this. Some quick initial shots show a great soft light from this.

                spreads well and is easy to put together. Only issue is it's made for the elinchrom head with dish . I can also use it to get really close to the subject.

                    Very nice even and broad light. Great for small groups and has excellent shadow softening. Have only it used it twice and the spring loaded retainer on the shaft that keeps the canopy open will no longer do its job. I had to jam a paper clip into the shaft slot to keep the canopy open. Hopefully Elinchrom will repair or replace.

                    nicest even white that is this compact.

                    nice quality material. the outside is a nice matte white material. the backside is all black, while the inside back is a more reflective matte white. i was surprised, expected the inside backing to be black but it is white. silver would have made it more efficient but double whites would be a softer more even lighting. there is also a reflector cone that is also white.

                    these are a little strangely made because the umbrella zipper closing is evenly spaced / centered. while elinchrom lights are not even, they have the umbrella mounting offcentered to the bottom. to use these with the quadras, you need adapters to fit the regular mount reflectors.
