      The el deflector set is a great tool to compliment your Elinchrom softboxes. if you use it along with the normal diffusers included with your softbox, it will further soften the light coming out of the box. Remove the diffusers and you can change the quality of the light coming from any Elinchrom softbox. Add the gold diffuser and you can add a bit of warmth to the light.

      First of all the product arrived promptly and B&H did well in that service. The product itself is very disappointing. The deflectors are made of very cheap plastic, sensitive to high temperatures (?!!) and the metallic coat on the silver and gold deflectors is very easily flaked off. I bought these with the idea that I could use them with a homemade beauty dish modifier, since I had the Elinchrom lights anyway, it would save me the step of having to mount a mirror. What I did not expect was that the bar that holds the deflector in place casts an odd shadow into the dish, which affects the shape of the key spot. I'm going to have to come up with a different solution.

              very useful for modifying the light in the elinchrom light boxes. Helps me diffuse light further when using large apertures and close spaces. Also allows color modification.

                Great idea! I like being able to turn my octa into a beauty dish. I like that they are made of plastic as I dont like to add any more weight to my assistants load. So far I have only used the silver but it does great!

                      It is a necessary tool for Ranger to shoot beauty and portrate. The silver defrector creates the beauty dish like light and white defrector with diffuser creates soft light like umbllera bounce with diffuser. Portabilty is also good for me.
