        I'm using them to direct and control my hair light for studio portraits. They work very well on my BXRI500, and they give me good focus and control. Just make sure you order the 21 cm reflector along with the set or you won't be able to use them on your Elinchrom monolight.

            Great set of barndoors. The various doors that come in the set give you a lot of flexibility to get different effects and control.

            It should come with a pouch so it can be carried around or stored away when not being used.

              Comments about Elinchrom Barndoor Set for 8-1/4" Standard Reflector:

              I have held off on ordering these because they are expensive. HOWEVER, you essentially get 3 sets of SUPERB quality barndoors that are simply fantastic and precision grade.

              I cannot recommend this product more highly! They add a whole new level of control--Did I mention that you can also use them with color gels?

              Get 'em. You will not be sorry.

                Comments about Elinchrom Barndoor Set for 8-1/4" Standard Reflector:

                I thought this kit was overpriced when looking at other kits that would work with Elinchrom lights. What I did not know is how exceptional the build quality was and once I held them; then I knew it was going to the last barn door set I was going to buy for a while.

                Just note if you buy the Elinchrom D-Lite-4 IT 400Ws 2-Light To Go Set it does not come with a 8.25 reflector (7 inch only) and you will still need to buy an 8.25 reflector to use the barn door set.

                Also buy the Elinchrom Color Filter Set for Elinchrom 8-1/4" Accessory Holder, 10 Sheets when you buy this they work great and the quality of those sheets are good too.

                  I use this with the 'Elinchrom Style 500 BXRi Compact MonoLight (90-260VAC)' and 'Standard Reflector, 8.25", for Elinchrom'. It mounts solidly, has different sized doors, and also black/silver surfaces.

                  No problems or complaints.

                  Comments about Elinchrom Barndoor Set for 8-1/4" Standard Reflector:

                  the leafs themselves seem to be OK but the mounting part (accessory holder) is real flimsy which makes opening and closing the leafs a pain. Every time I try to make an adjustment the accessory holder sides just pull out (bend outwards). Takes two hands, one to reinforce the frame of the holder while the other to move the leaf around. I would have liked to see a more sturdier metal used or reinforcement in some way that it didn't flex as it does. I would still recommend this, but its almost hard at this price
