Elinchrom EL28000 overview

  • 1Description

With its large 75" diameter surface area and wide coverage, the Indirect Litemotiv Octa Softbox from Elinchrom prompts many photographers to make it their only light source. Ideal for everything from fashion to portraiture, the Octa is a prime example of the signature quality of light possible from this type of shaped modifier. Push it back to cover larger subjects or pull it close for a real demonstration of its famous wrap-around light. It also reflects natural-looking star shaped catchlights in the subject's eyes.

Called Indirect because of how its rear-firing design softens the light output, the Litemotiv Octa boasts an edge to edge brightness without hotspots, yet can take the heat when it has to. The black-backed silver reflective material is rated for lamps up to 650W, and the unique folding system allows you to quickly break it down for transport or storage. Each Leitmotiv comes with both a front and interior diffuser, as well as a quality made carrying case.

The Litemotiv Octa can be used with Elinchrom or Profoto flash heads with separate purchase of an adapter.

Construction
The unique folding system allows a speedy setup of the Indirect Litemotiv in any location and with each softbox.
Quality of Light
The central mounting for the flash head places the flashtube at the point of focus inside the softbox for the best possible results. The light is so even that many photographers use it as a single source.
More Light
The reflective fabric of the Litemotiv softboxes offers more light output compared to previous fabrics while providing the same distinctive Elinchrom look. Built to last and heat-resistant up to 650W, it is a good choice for rental studios.
Compatibility
The integral reflector of an Elinchrom flash unit is designed to maximize the efficiency and evenness of light. The flashtube is precisely positioned 20mm from the surface to avoid the inherent unevenness of non-concentric flashtubes. The bayonet mount is compatible with all Elinchrom flash units since 1974.
Stability
Small rings were added to the sides of the softbox so that photographers can securely attach them to the ground or any element around them.
Portability
The setting up / breaking down process is so simple that, even though this is a large softbox, it can be quickly folded down into one carrying bag for convenient storage and transport.

    Elinchrom EL28000 reviews

    Indirect Litemotiv Octa Softbox (75") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing light Such a great lighting tool, really love the quality of the light and use it for all my fashion ecomm work. Provides a crisp and even light with soft fall off. It's huge at 75 so not for everyone or every situation. With it's size it does need a lot of power, I'm looking to start using a Profoto twin tube with this as it'll give me the power I need and help cut my recycle times (I usually shoot at f/18-22). The only down side, but easily resolved, is the horribly designed stand mount. A lighting tool of this size requires a much more stout mount. The one included is toy like with all it's plastic parts and will not last. I strongly urge everyone to replace it with a hollywood grip head immediately! I've attached images of the upgrade, take 2 min to swap them out. I recently replaced a broken rod, Elinchrom/MAC Group was super helpful and sent the rod for a DIY fix. I could have sent it in for repair but opted for the DIY at a fraction of the cost ($22 w/shipping). The replacement took about 20-30min and was easy just requiring a phillips head screw driver and steady hand (several small pieces inside).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Magnificient except the tilthead Superb and easy to set up. The tilthead is of poor quality if you use a heavy studio flash like a Profoto D2 1000W. This is solvable but you need extra unessessary extra gear. I would rate it 10 stars if the tilthead was solid. The case should be 20 cm longer

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product ... I waited along time to buy this octa but the light from this unit is so soft and clean. It is easy to setup and the build quality is really solid. The price is my only complaint but the quality of light is on another level. I highly recommend A++++

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light modifier I recently purchased one of these and the light coming from this modifier is absolutely on another level. I highly recommend this Elinchrom product. The build quality is great. My only con is the price. A++++
