Elinchrom Litemotiv Parabolic 120cm Overview

The Litemotiv 120cm Parabolic Softbox from Elinchrom is a logical extension of their softbox range. The 16-sided softbox is ideal for portraiture since its form factor renders pleasing circular catchlights in subject's eyes, while the Litemotiv's large surface area wraps the soft light around the subject.

Optimal results can be achieved using any combination of the unit's removable front and inner diffusers as well as optional deflectors that reduce hotspots. The Litemotiv requires separate purchase of a heavy duty bracket for use. The Elinchrom bracket enables precise and easy positioning for all Elinchrom heads. Profoto, Bowens, and Broncolor Pulso brackets are also available.

16 Rods
The 16 anodized rods are heat-resistant, enabling work with high-temperature light sources and creating ideal catchlights for portraiture, The rods are made of flexible aluminum to follow the parabolic shape of the Litemotiv. The color coding of the bracket and rods enable trouble-free assembly. These studio softboxes feature convenience features such as a removable rear cover that makes them simple to setup and disassemble
More Light
The fabric of the Litemotiv softboxes is unique. It offers 30% more light output than the standard Rotalux fabric used for the Portalite while being just as lightweight. It also offers the same distinctive Elinchrom look as the other softboxes but with the addition of heat-resistance which allows the use of hot lights up to 650W
Separately Purchased Support Bracket
Designed to support the Litemotiv 120cm and the larger 190cm, this separately purchased bracket takes all of the stress off the attached flash head in use while providing easy positioning of it. Elinchrom, Bowens S-Mount, Broncolor Pulso and Profoto brackets are available
Double Diffusion
The double diffusion panels have been specially designed to produce very soft light. The inner diffuser also incorporates a central circular panel to avoid hotspots, thus offering the most homogenous light possible. It is possible to remove both diffusers to obtain a very crisp and contrasty light, similar to a beauty dish but much larger
Optional Deflectors
Elinchrom compacts and flash heads offer a unique centered umbrella fitting for umbrellas and deflectors. This gives photographers the freedom to easily modify the hardness / softness of their lights. Deflectors can eliminate, soften or tone sharp shadow edges and hotspots

question

Does it break down like Elinchrom Octas for easy storage in a carry bag and quick (pop up) assembly on location?
Asked by: Tom
Hi,The Elinchrom Litemotiv direct light shaper does not break down like the Elinchrom indirect Octas. The 120cm/47 Litemotiv uses a bracket to hold the head and the 16 rods that are needed to set up this unit.Here is a little note on the setting up of the unit:The 16 anodized rods are heat-resistant, enabling work with high temperature light sources. They are made out of flexible aluminum so that they follow the parabolic shape of the Litemotiv. The color coding of the bracket and rods enable trouble free assembly. These are studio softboxes but their construction make them simple to setup but also to disassemble.If you visit the Elinchrom US site you can see the mounting bracket required for this Litemotiv Direct and the larger Litemotiv.<a href= http://www.elinchromus.com/light_shapers/litemotiv.html target= _blank >http://www.elinchromus.com/light_shapers/litemotiv.html</a>I hope this helps.Regards,Will HBrand Manager Lighting, Mac Group US

So what is the Elinchrom heavy duty bracket mentioned under product highlights? And does it require an additional piece of equipment to actually mount a strobe?
