Elinchrom EL26169 overview

  • 1Description

The Elinchrom Softlite 27" Reflector (White)is a parabolic "Pan" reflector with adjustable deflector shield for eliminating specular light from the flashtube, and re-directing it back into the reflector. It is ideal for portrait and commercial photography where broad, soft, even lighting is required, but has more crispness than a softbox. It includes silver, gold, frosted and white deflectors.

    Elinchrom EL26169 reviews

    Softlite 27'' Reflector (White) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great modifier! This modifier is great! Puts out a really nice super soft light, the interchangable deflectors are really good. I wouldnt recommend the gold one though because it bends the light a bit toooo yellow. NOTE to all Genesis 400 users... this is one of the only modifiers NOT compatible with the Genesis series at this point in time. Maybe later on, but not now. Anything that requires the use of the modifier hole or whatever it's called that is in the elinchrom strones, is out of play. I had to purchase some Elinchrom strobes after I purchased this dish! Not mad at all... because the dish is awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Really Like this Modifier I am very pleased with this modifier. I love the light. You will find the grid a useful accessory. It is my first beauty dish, so while I love it compared to other modifiers, I can't provide great insight. 27 is a large dish, so you will need to be careful if transporting. Likewise, need to be careful when mounting on your light so as not to bump the flash tube. I use a C-stand and boom arm. I found it best to first mount the monolight flash tube facing up at waist level. Then mount the dish so you can see what your doing and let gravity provide an assist.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Beauty Dish This reflector is an excellent beauty dish. It produces beautifully even lighting with the nice falloff you expect from a beauty dish. The construction is typical Elinchrom, top quality as always. Keep in mind this is a 27 dish so it is quite large and has a little weight to it as a result, so I would recommend a heavy duty light stand and/or a sandbag to keep it from tipping over.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awespme I bought this to work with my Ranger RX and my Quadra systems on location shoots. I had been using my 39 Deep Octa but when shooting in high wind areas that softbox acts as a massive sail and makes it difficult, at times, to work with that piece. I needed something a little lighter and less likely to blow my assistant away during a shoot. This Beauty Dish works really well, produces a fantastic light and has some great throw. But, like all BDs, if you get too far away the light is really harsh on models with blemishes in their skin. I would highly recommend the cloth diffuser Elinchrom sells that augments this reflector. It does make a difference. All in all, this is a great piece that needs to be added to your arsenal of modifiers.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great, but...... after using this beauty dish on a few shoots I have to say that I was really happy with the results. The dish isn't as heavy as I thought it would be and it actually does have an area around the edge to put a grid which is not visible in pictures of the product. but that brings up a problem, there are no grids available for this. I've tried to find aftermarket grids and even looked for alternative materials to use, but nothing to fit this dish. and this is becoming a problem because the dish really throws light everywhere. until I find a grid, I will probably just use this for headshots

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, Crisp Light Used primarily for location portraits as a main light, the (included) 4 deflectors help to tailor the output to any given situation. The size is a bit challenging to travel around with, but is totally worth the results. Exceptional as a high-front, but equally good when flagged from high-to the side. Has a lip for a grid, but Elinchrom doesn't make one. Custom 25 grids can be ordered for a reasonable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big dish, beautiul light When I got the box for this dish I was a little taken back by the size of it. At 27 inches it is 5 inches bigger than the Profoto dish I have used in the past, but what it lacks in transportability it more than makes up for with quality of light. It gives you a flattering soft light while maintaining a fairly quick fall-off to sculpt your subject. I do wish that Elinchrom offered grids and a case for this dish. The lack of those accessories is the only downside I can see.
    Date published: 2010-12-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides Beautiful Light This is an extremely wonderful light modifier. If you are seeking something that provides a more punchy light, then should be your choice. With the sock diffuser on the dish, it gives a beautiful softer light. It is large but extremely light weight. I have found that due to its size it is preferable to place it on a boom arm because on a straight light stand can point it down a limited distance. It includes several colored reflectors (small circles) which provide versatility in the type of light delivered. Need to be careful when storing it because it will bend. This is a great light for portraits.
