Elinchrom Indirect Overview

The Elinchrom Rotalux 59" Indirect Softbox is a unique light shaping tool that offers the creative photographer several different qualities of light depending how the diffuser and included speed rings are employed. When configured like standard softboxes without the front diffuser, the Rotalux acts like a combination of a large reflector and a silver umbrella offering wide coverage and crisp rendition of details. Slip on the included front diffuser and the soft, wrap-around light quality that Octa-type softboxes are known for becomes evident.

The Rotalux's depth of 59" allows you to use the "indirect" speed ring to bounce the light into the back of the softbox for yet another degree of contrast. Finally, slip on the front diffuser for extremely, soft delicate light that will flatter any subject.

  • Central mounting ring allows Elinchrom compacts or flash heads to be mounted facing back into the softbox
  • Direct and indirect speed rings are included
  • The combination of the deep shape and the indirect reflecting strobe light offers a unique quality of light which is ideal for many applications such as beauty and fashion
  • 360° revolving system
  • Folds down like an umbrella, without breaking down the softbox
  • Carrying is included
  • Optional Hooded Diffusers to control the light beam are available

    question

    Will this work with Dynalites?
    Asked by: Matthew P.
    Unfortunately, no; the Elinchrom Rotalux 59 Indirect Softbox does not have a speedring for use with Dynalite light fixtures.

    question

    I have the Litemotiv 190 and love it. But due to its size and the size of the boom stand they cannot be used in tight locations (living rooms or so). This one is not much smaller but a suitable boom can be much less massive. The question is whether the light quality of this one is similar? Also, is there an adapter for Siros L?
    Asked by: Bobkov
    This Elinchrom softbox would produce a light that is less soft since it's smaller than the Litemotiv 190. The Elinchrom Rotalux Speed Ring for Bron Pulso Flash Heads B&H # EL26543 will get it attached to a Siros L monolight.

    question

    Does this work with a Bowens speedring made by Elinchrom?
    Asked by: sean
    The Elinchrom Rotalux Speed Ring Adapter for Bowens, B&H # EL26530, would work for your stated needs with Bowens monolights using the Bowens S-mount.
