A good addition to my reflector "depot". It is sturdy and fits well on all of my Elinchrom heads. Although, I have been using it for only several weeks, I think if this were not a good light-shaping tool, I would have noticed it during a first try. I also think that bayonet-type fitting is another great Elinca's idea.

    Comments about Wide Angle, Umbrella Reflector, for Elinchrom:

    I use it to direct light from my Elinchrom strobes on to an\ refelctive umbrella. In my small studio, I use 33" umbrellas and low power Elinchrom strobes to illuminate my background (especially white.) Without the reflector light spills into unwanted areas instead of illuminating the background with full intensity. The reflector eliminated the need for flags and increased illumination of the background.

    Nice to use with a 6 or 7 foot umbrella, spreads the light to cover the width.

      Comments about Wide Angle, Umbrella Reflector, for Elinchrom:

      I think this is primarily designed for smaller umbrellas. I have used it on 40" and 7' para umbrellas and it seems to work better on the 40" as it focuses (channels) the light into the narrower diffusion material.

          Comments about Wide Angle, Umbrella Reflector, for Elinchrom:

          This reflector fits the Elinchrom D-Lite 2 & 4 monolights. These strobes are targeted to the same people who might buy AlienBee units. The nice thing about this reflector is that it's robust and durable enough to not bend or dent easily. By contrast the AlienBee reflectors are thin and flimsy. I also prefer the Elinchrom mounting system because it has a lock.
          My only real complaint is that this is not included by default with the strobe.

            Comments about Wide Angle, Umbrella Reflector, for Elinchrom:

            I was a little disappointed when I received my monolight and it did not include a reflector in the box. I ordered this to accomodate my umbrellas and it is a solid piece of gear. Like all things Elinchrom, it is well built, fits the light like a glove, and works as advertised.

              I bought this because the monolight kit i bought only comes with one reflector. I needed it for the second pair . I actually used it like a barn door. Pointed the light to the wall to blow up the background. It works. :)

                  I use this with my Elinchrom D-Lite RX One flash head. It works well and seems to be well made. My only complaint is that I mistakenly thought it came with the flash head, as all pictures show the head with the umbrella reflector attached.

                    Using this with umbrellas. The lighting kit I bought only came with one.

                    Good quality, solid, no complaints. Works well with the lights. Getting a very even spread.

                    Ideal for when you are not using a soft box.

                                  These reflectors are essential for anyone using Elinchrom umbrellas. They fit like a glove on my 500BXRi monolights and offer beautiful, leak-free lighting when used with umbrellas.

                                    These reflectors are needed when shooting with umbrellas, it provides a perfect flow of light, I couldn't imagine using the light units without them.
