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.

Asked by: Mike
The light quality produced by the Elinchrom 75" Indirect Litemotiv Octa Softbox would be excellent. However, the results may vary depending on the light being used and the distance at which the modifier is placed towards the subject.

While Elinchrom does not offer a direct Bowens mount for this particular softbox, a better option would be the Elinchrom Litemotiv 190cm Parabolic Softbox, B&H # ELLM190 and the Elinchrom Litemotiv Octa Bracket for Bowens S-Mount, B&H # ELLMBB. https://bhpho.to/3brvjwW https://bhpho.to/39gqzc0
