Product Highlights
  • 59" (150 cm) OctaBox
  • Direct and Indirect Speed Rings
  • Use with or Without Front Diffuser
  • Carry Bag is Included

The Elinchrom Rotalux 59" Indirect Softbox is a unique light shaping tool that offers the creative photographer several different qualities of light depending how the diffuser and included speed rings are employed. When configured like standard softboxes without the front diffuser, the Rotalux acts like a combination of a large reflector and a silver umbrella offering wide coverage and crisp rendition of details. Slip on the included front diffuser and the soft, wrap-around light quality that Octa-type softboxes are known for becomes evident.

The Rotalux's depth of 29" allows you to use the "indirect" speed ring to bounce the light into the back of the softbox for yet another degree of contrast. Finally, slip on the front diffuser for extremely, soft delicate light that will flatter any subject.

  • Central mounting ring allows Elinchrom compacts or flash heads to be mounted facing back into the softbox
  • Direct and indirect speed rings are included
  • The combination of the deep shape and the indirect reflecting strobe light offers a unique quality of light which is ideal for many applications such as beauty and fashion

          Great modifier. I have the larger octa as well, but this is great in tighter locations and the versatility of it is really nice--lots of options.

            Comments about Elinchrom Rotalux 59" Indirect Softbox:

            I use the Elinchrom 150cm Rotalux for lighting people - currently I have two. It makes a very lovely light for portraits, especially for women or full length shots by virtue of being indirect and slightly parabolic.

            It is fairly quick to set up and take down and can be anchored by a single person. The larger indirect - the so called Beauty Light - is just too unwieldy for location work. The mounting hardware...where you attatch the rig to a stand or boom end could be more robust..but all the european flash makers have this issue. At nearly 5 ft across it will be too large for tight locations.
