Elinchrom EL26186 overview

  • 1Description

The 69" Rotalux Octa Softbox from Elinchrom is one of the most popular of the Elinchrom light banks, as the octagonal shape gives remarkably even illumination--within 1/3 f/stop across the entire nearly 6' diameter. It can be used very close to your subject for soft, even wrap-around light, and its light efficiency helps even small compact units give impressive exposure readings. The Octa comes with a durable carrying case for protection and portability.

Provides even illumination--within 1/3 stop across the entire 69" diameter

    Elinchrom EL26186 reviews

    Rotalux Octa Softbox (69") is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rotalux fantastic light quality I purchase this unit several month ago I use it with my profoto light with Kacey Enterprise adapter, also I did not think that I will be pleased (another softbox) installing is the difficult part after that you are ready to really like this box folding is very easy and opening is as easy ( you must go under the softbox with your head), I dont use the original box to travel with it I use a Hakuba PSTC 400 Pro Series Light Stand or Tripod Case - for Light Stands or a Tripod up to 46 Long (Black) that is easier on the unit. My primary usage Portrait and full lenght very soft with both diffusers and more punch with the interior diffuser only.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge - Wonderful This box is huge, but creates incredible light. And you can move it quite far back, feather it to death, and still get amazing light.I have read a lot of reviews on Elinchrom Octas of various sizes - we have them all now - and I think one mistake is the idea that you disassemble them after usage. Assembly should be once, then fold it like an umbrealla for storage.Assembly: I put these togeher alone - as another reivewer mentioned, this one is done best from inside it - like an igloo. And the size makes it the easiest to assemble because the tension on the arms is fairly loose. Taking it down is best done from inside as well - unless you have freakishly long arms; pop the arms loose, let it collapse, and fold it up.Bottom line: incredibe modifier that provides the smoothest of light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and soft Real nice octabox. Since Broncolor don't make octaboxes i bought this and modified the speed ring for use with my Broncolor strobes. It worked very well and is a nice tool when i don't want to bring my Para. The Rotalux is well made and folds down like an umbrella. I has a two cloth design, so you can choose if you want soft or extra soft look, thanks to Elinchroms design you also can use this almost as an large beutydish. It comes with the best softboxbag i have seen so far!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing light modifier Other than the fact that this modifier is incredibly difficult to put together, and take apart it works amazingly well. It's so large that it can act as both key and background light for a mid-key photo. I've only had a couple of shoots since having it so far, but I can see that it will be used a lot in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb light modifier This is a huge step up from my little Elinchrom Portalites, so soft, so even. Love the design, two layers of diffusers as well as a white deflector for the flash tube in the middle. This soft box is well constructed, versatile and easy to set up once you have practiced it a couple of times. There are so many ways this large soft box can be used it is amazing. Make sure you have counter weight because it is not really light once set up and sandbag on the light stand. Like many other Elinchrom soft boxes, this Rotalux comes with a custom carry bag which is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Light at a good price I'm impressed with the design of the Octa box and its beautiful quality of light. The quick-release speed ring is a great device that makes set-up and take down a breeze. This 69'' Rotalux is a essential part of my lighting scheme and it replaces my large chimera for shooting people. This is a top quality product but be gentle with the fabric as I have already managed to poke a hole in it. If you need a large soft light source that wraps around the subject, this is the softbox for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!! Amazing light from this octa. It is very smooth and is easily modified by using or not using internal diffusion, external diffusion, and the interior deflector. You can change the mood of a shot in fifteen seconds!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I needed an affordable but effective solution for a larger, even, effective light source. The EL 69 Rotolux is perfect. Good quality, great functionality and a good value. The speed ring fits effortlessly on my Elinchrom monolights and the rotating collar (which can be locked), is a fantastic feature. It's a bit large and takes some effort / patience to put together, but I expected as much and it's something I can do on my own.
