Elinchrom Octabox 100cm Overview

Known for its flexibility and superior construction, the 39" Rotalux Octabox from Elinchrom has a large surface area and a wraparound quality of light, especially when used up close, that makes it popular with portrait artists and fashion photographers. Well-suited to head-and-shoulders shooting, the Octabox's unique shape also reflects natural-looking catchlights in the eyes of your subject. The softbox has removable interior and exterior white diffusers that can be used one at a time, together, or not at all for different contrast and softness options.

Optional translucent deflectors bounce light to the back of the Octabox to remove the hotspot and further soften the light. A separately purchased hooded diffuser limits spill light, while an optional collapsible fabric grid narrows the beam angle and thwarts spill light. The light shaper's separately purchased speed ring has spring-loaded sockets that allow you to mount the support poles in sockets tension-free, then snap them into place. The Octabox has a silver interior for maximum output and comes with a bag for storage and transport.

    Good to Supplement Deep Octabox

    I've owned an Elinchrom Rotalux Deep Octabox (100cm/39) for several years. It's great but the beam is fairly narrow. So I got the one which is not deep. The beam is a lot wider. Now I can choose between them to get the perfect coverage.

    Great Softbox

    the Elinchrom Rotalux 39 is by far the best portrait/beauty/fashion light there is. I rented this for years and finally just had to buy one. Thank you Elinchrom for knowing what actually works in professional photo lighting.

    I bought this after testing/renting its bigger brother. I think this small size works great for my application.

    I first bought a lesser quality octabox trying to save money, but it was so annoying to put together and take apart every shoot. I finally decided to spend the money on this and absolutely love it! Not only is it super easy to put everything together, but its also has a lovely quality of light!

    Easy to use speedring, folds up nicely, great softbox

    Super easy to assemble and fold up! There's a lot of great YouTube videos showing how to put together. The rods basically snap in place and it's super quick. The materials feel hardy and quality and the soft light looks amazing and is perfect portrait photography and videography.

    This softbox does not come with a speedring. You will need to buy the type that matches your lights needs.

    I’m looking to make the Rotalux into and indirect source, like my deep Octabox. I’ve heard there is an adapter, anyone know what it is called? Thanks.

    Not aware of any such product made by Elinchrom, Perhaps they meant the Deflector plates which is listed in the accessories on this item.
