Elinchrom EL26178 overview

  • 1Description

The Elinchrom 27 x 27" (69 x 69 cm) Rotalux Softbox is designed for the exclusive use of Elinchrom flash heads. The featherweight box features a matte-black crinkle exterior with distinctive gray rip-piping and a reflective silver interior. The shoot-through design uses both a removable internal baffle and removable, flush-mounted front face to soften the light.  

Another innovative feature which distinguishes Elinchrom softboxes from others is the lightweight dedicated speed-ring, which utilizes knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the four stainless rods which form the frame of the box, to the ring. This allows easy assembly of the box in a de-tensioned state. The user then simply pivots the sockets 90 degrees until they lock into place to tension it for use.  As a further convenience Elinchrom provides a durable, dot-patterned nylon case with a flat bottom designed to hold the de-tensioned Rotalux without dissembling it.

The square 27 x 27" (69 x 69 cm) shape is ideal for portraiture or for use as a fill light.

Shape
The 27 x 27" (69 x 69 cm) shape is ideal for head-and-shoulders portraiture, as a hairlight for groups or for reflective products and glassware.
Quick Setup, Breakdown
Lightweight, dedicated speed-ring utilizes knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the four stainless rods which form the frame of the box.
Storage
Fits assembled but de-tensioned in the included case, ready to set up again in seconds.

    Elinchrom EL26178 reviews

    Rotalux Softbox 27 x 27" (69 x 69 cm) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from i would buy this product again I use this product in my studio for portrait photography, Well constructed, excellent quality, lightweight speed ring, easy to assemble and I like the way the diffuser attaches to the shell. Easy to install on the Elinchrom Pro RX STYLE lights with new and improved locking ring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, as usual! Like all Elinchrom modifiers, this softbox is terrific. Durable, fast and easy to set up, and creates soft, beautiful light. Perfect for head shots!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Reliable Product I own many rotalux soft boxes, but this is the most versatile for entry level portraits, beauty lighting or hair light accessory. Material is very sturdy, but can prove to be difficult while installing. My only one wish is that the product was installed by the manufacturer and ready to use out of the box. If the rods are not fitted in to the latches, you can either tear a hole through the material or end up breaking a piece of the rod (which is a rare occurrence, but it does happen.) Besides the installation, the product is very sturdy, well constructed and fit very well to my elinchrom 600RX flash heads. I rated the product 4 stars because of the installation processes. Other than that, the product among every rotalux soft box I have owned proves that Rotalux is made of quality that you will enjoy for many years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, Beautiful Light I have many Rotalux boxes but I use this for fill for clamshell lighting. I also like it on my Quadra for a very compact and easy to set up combination. It's great for using as a pure white background for small product shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB SOFTBOX My 3 flashes (strobes) are Genesis 200 w/s. They are advertised as (speedring)compatible with Elinchrom. So, I purchased the 39 Octa Lite Softbox which comes with the speedring adapter for Elinchrom flashes only. Yes, the included speedring works perfectly with my Genesis. I use the Octa Softbox for my key light. It replaced my umbrella. Then, I purchased this 27 square soft box for my fill light. The softbox is of excellent quality and yes, the speedring is totally compatible with my non-Elinchrom strobes. I use these two soft boxes for portraits of my grandsons. Set up is very easy on this 27 and, believe it or not, breakdown just a tad more difficult but still, easy. Elinchrom is the way to go. You could get cheaper but nowhere near the build quality of Elinchrom.So that the fabric does not tear and rods break, you must go with quality with soft boxes. BTW, the soft light they produce for portraits exceed umbrellas any day. Set up and dismantling now is relatively easy and the soft boxes store away nicely in the included compact carrying cases. I'm very happy the price also included the speedring.
