      Better than original

      By Michael

      from Washington DC

      Comments about 17" Diffuser for Elinchrom Minisoft:

      I bought this to replace a diffusion panel on an Elinchrom beauty dish. The original wasn't much larger than the dish itself so it was difficult to place over the dish without it wanting to slip off the other side. This replacement is several inches larger than the dish and has a good overlap all around. Much npbetter than the original product.

          This is an absolute must have for the Elinchrom Softlite 17" Reflector. Otherwise the outer edges run a bit hot.

                      Not sure why this doesn't come with the reflector - you'll want it, need it, use it.

                        Another useful light shaper from Elinchrom. It looks like a shower cap and easily slips over your dish to diffuse light. Normally used with a Translucide Deflector. Takes up little storage space when transporting your gear. Enhances the softness of dish light thereby increasing the dish's usefulness, my preference over setting up a time consuming bulky softbox when time and space dictate.

                                  I mainly use my Elinchrom beauty dish without the sock but when I need a little more softness for portraits I use this and it does what its intended to do. I will also use it with the dish for product shots.
