        Comments about Elinchrom Hooded Diffuser for Rotalux Mini Rectangular 14x35" Softbox:

        I used the hooded diffuser for accent lighting. By placing the light at 45 degree angle to the subject, I was able to get an edge of light. I plan to try adding the little diffuser-sheet that came with the softbox(ELSBRMR1435)in order to better ensure that I do not blowout the edge highlight detail. If you assembled the softbox ELSBRMR1435 with the unhooded diffuser, be prepared to virtually reassemble to attach the hooded to the box.

          Comments about Elinchrom Hooded Diffuser for Rotalux Mini Rectangular 14x35" Softbox:

          A little difficult to put on, but once on I just left it on. It recesses the diffusion panel into the box so it is very sturdy. Narrows the beam and hardens it which I like in a small strip light. When it is time to put away I just pull the corners off and the box folds up perfectly and is ready to go the next time I need it.

          Comments about Elinchrom Hooded Diffuser for Rotalux Mini Rectangular 14x35" Softbox:

          The Elinchrom Rotalux hooded diffuser design leaves me cold. When I ordered it, I assumed that it would slip over the front opening of the softbox and attach to the outside of the softbox with velcro. That's how the orignal diffuser--the one that came with the softbox--works. It attaches in mere seconds. However, the hooded diffuser demands that you partially disassemble the softbox, which is a pain. Seems like a flawed design to me. I wish Elinchrom had built the hooded part of the diffuser into the original diffuser that came with the softbox. I guess it's a way they can squeeze more money out of the consumrer once he/she has bought into the Elinchrom Rotalux system already.

              Adding the diffuser to this softbox make it a narrow light which is great as a hairlight

              Comments about Elinchrom Hooded Diffuser for Rotalux Mini Rectangular 14x35" Softbox:

              I like it so far for its intended purpose to cut light spill. However, I'm not sure I like the fact that it is so deep it contacts the inner diffuser. I'm not absolutely sure though if you really need the inner diffuser now so I've given it 4 stars

                  Very nice addition to the Elinchrom Rotalux 14x35 Softbox. Allows control of the light spill with much more precision than the standard diffuser. Must have accessory!
