question

I'm confused by the MFR number for this item, plus accessories shown. The picture looks more like the EL26647 shown on Elinchrom web site and listed for $289. Listing also says translucent deflector is also included, but the deflector isn't in the photos showing what is included with the softbox. Can anyone clarify?
Asked by: Richard T.
The current version of the Elinchrom Rotalux Octabox (135cm / 53 ) B&H # EL26647 does not include the translucent deflector, nor the Elinchrom compatible speed ring, which the original did include when it was still available.

question

In the Box description lists speed ring twice. Is speed ring provided custom built for the Rotalux or regular Elinchrom speed ring normally purchased separately but include with this softbox as a bundle (Model EL26184 versus EL26647)?
Asked by: Richard T.
EL26647 is a new catalog number replacing EL26184 . The internal and external translucent diffusers are included, but the softbox ring is not.

question

Has anyone used this with the Profoto B1's ? I would like to know if these can overpower the sun with the B1's. Thanks.
Asked by: Darnell N.
The answer is both yes and it depends. There is no single correct answer, as it depends on a myriad of factors, such as your base exposure, by how many f-stops you wish to overpower the sun, the flash distance from the subject, your camera's flash sync speed, etc. But for as simple answer to your question, using the Sunny 16 exposure rule with an exposure of 1/250th @ f11 @ 100 ISO, you would need an output of f/16 or stronger to overpower the sun. With the Profoto B1 500 AirTTL Battery-Powered Flash and the Elinchrom Rotalux Softbox Octa (53 ) approximately 5 feet from your subject, you would still have more than enough power to overpower the sun. The farther your setup from your subject, the fewer f-stops you will have for overpowering the sun. If it is a cloudy day, you may get more working distance from your setup compared to use on a cloudless day.
