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 Elinchrom flash head.

Further lighting effects are possible when it is used with the EL-Deflector in translucent, silver, or gold reflective colors (available separately).

    This is a great modifier- bought it to use with my profoto acute head ( needs a elinchrom to profoto adapter). I found it pretty versatile (3 diffuser- only 2 can be used when using the elinchrom to profoto adapter because of the offsetting in the adapter ring umbrella hole)

    Most people rating this product simply talk about how complicated it is to set it up but realistically, after a couple setups it becomes extremely easy.

    The 1st time you insert the rods, it takes time and might fraustrate you a bit but afterward, you do not need to re-install the rods; you can simply keep them installed and fold the rotalux along with the adapter ring into the bag it comes with ( impressive design). Once you re-open it to re-use, it should literally take you 30sec to 1min to install ( no brainer after a few trials) simply set it up on a flat surface and click each rod tip into the ring it comes with and add the diffusion panels and its a wrap.

    The rotalux itself is a wonder, very well built, the material does not feel cheap and it is pretty sturdy and wont easily rip. for a more punchy image I would recommend having it with the circular plastic diffuser or the 1s panel diffuser and for a softer feel to your images, my recommendation would be to use both diffusion panels. Excellent modifier , you wont regret it at all. It is very very light weight even with the bag.

    * check out the photo ( test) put it up 16 feet in the air with my avenger boom stand ( lots of wind but it did not really twitch! )

    Love the light, hate the construction. Mounting ring is very cheap aluminum and bent within 1.5 months. When I contacted them I was told I would have to buy a new one $[$] (1/3 of the price of the unit)The speedring is even more cheaply made and software metal than the ultra-cheap adapters you get from fotodiox.My recommendation, save $[$] and buy the fotodiox 36" or 48" octabox. Light quality is just as good and surprisingly better made. Very disappointed in this product.

    Comments about Elinchrom 39" Rotalux Deep OctaBox:

    I had heard good things about this modifier, but the quality of light is gorgeous. I bought this with an Elinchrom speedring adapted to Buff's Einstein. There is no comparison between this unit and the Buff Octabox, Elinchrom wins hands down.

    Assembly was a bit challenging, but I'm glad I have one.

    Stunning Light

    By CircusPix

    Comments about Elinchrom 39" Rotalux Deep OctaBox:

    After thorough research, I am so glad that I purchased this mod. The light is stunning, as it wraps around each subject. It took me an extra amount of time to build, but once it was in place, it has been a snap to set up. this has become part of my on-location base Kit. Just stunning.

      Comments about Elinchrom 39" Rotalux Deep OctaBox:

      I just received this modifier, and while I was concerned about all of the negative reviews on setting up the system, I must admit that it went together seamlessly for me. I also didn't pay attention to the fact that it comes with a soft carrying case when I ordered, so that was a nice surprise.

      The quality of light from this octabox is unmatched.

      I will use this for studio and environmental portraits. The quality of light from this modifier is so good; it's worth the incredible difficulty in first assembly. My first exposure with this Octa was impeccable. It can be highly directional or "the light you don't see" until you remove it. Hands down, the best modifier I own, and I own a lot!

              Following the Elinchrom instructions won't help setting up this octabox. I wrestled for two hours trying to put the octabox together. I watched videos to how to set it up, and loved the videos of how fast they could part it together in seconds, but they don't tell how to break it apart. Elinchrom needs a better construction of the 39" Rotalux Deep Octabox, who wants to spent time setting this octabox on location, for example, a wedding. The Beauty of the octabox is when you see the result in your photos. Hate the set up, but Love what it does.

              So, this provides a beautiful soft light. But... man, not easy to get set up initially, and not a whole lot easier to go from case to ready to use. I'm not a big guy (other than around the middle) so it's a challenge to reach inside and get things to line up correctly. Once it's setup, very light and easy to deal with.

                The quality of light is great and the fall off is easy to work with. Thus far, I have only used it with the diffusion panels.

                The speed ring system works reasonably, but it takes a little getting used to before one can set it up confidently and quickly. The box itself is made of a thin lightweight material. I hope the material is strong enough to be long lasting.

                Hi folks. Just wanted to provide you a review of my experience with the Rotalux Deep Octa. I had been shooting with beauty dishes for several years and I loved the light but hated the size of it and dealing with the awkwardness while traveling. This deep Octa compresses into a nice small travel bag and weighs next to nothing. Double baffled light is gorgeous. There are also several other brands out there so you may be able to save some bucks.

                    The quality of light is really nice with and without outer diffusion. I got this to replace my Paul Buff 35" octa. The Paul Buff modifiers are thick and rugged compared to this box. I take the PB octa with me on location all the time not sure if the Deep Octa is up to the task due to the thin natural of the material used.This is used with the Paul Buff Einstein E640. I got the AlienBees speed ring but the Einstein only locks half way but its enough to hold just fine. The ring does fit AlienBees strobe perfectly. I have to say the first time setup was very difficult to get everything lined up right.

                          Being new to rotalux light modifiers it took me a few days to understand the set up and break down process. But once I got, it was breeze!

                          I use this with an Einstein 640 strobe and adapter ring.

                          Solid build and beautiful light.

                            The interior of this box ripped after two weeks of use. After owning it for over a year, the interior is covered with white duck tape just to make it adequate for use. Ridiculously expensive for such terrible build quality. Furthermore, the O-ring that has to be purchased to use this failed to retract after a couple weeks as well. As a result, this wide, deep Octa is not able to collapse and is terribly difficult to bring to/from places let alone through doorways. I feel embarrassed when I have to squeeze it through my clients door frames because it's not able to be collapsed. I hate the fact that I overpaid for this item, which is not better than Paul Buff or similar. Every Elinchrom product I have purchased has been of terrible build quality and has malfunctioned in some way. DO NOT PAY THEM YOUR MONEY!

                              Just connect to the head and ready to shoot. Easy to set up.

                              Durable and stronge material.

                                  There are tons of articles on the web that will tell you what a great light shaping tool this is, and it doesn't disappoint. Solid construction, portable, and easy to put together. Some people suggest it's hard to put the rods in for the first time, but it's actually pretty easy. Highly recommended.
