Elinchrom EL26166 overview

  • 1Description

The Elinchrom Softlite 17" Reflector (Silver) is ideal for portrait and commercial photography where broad, soft, even lighting is required, but with more crispness than a softbox. A silver deflector for neutral color balance and a gold deflector for a warming effect are included to eliminate specular light from the flashtube and redirect it back into reflector.

Elinchrom EL26166 reviews

Softlite 17'' Reflector (Silver) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant blast of light! I added the 17 white minisoft for the reason to save space in my studio, and have at least one light that was quick enough to position for a hot rim or key. I use it now as my rim when shooting with the Octa as my main. The best, aside form the size, is that with the diffuser, it can act like a sharper soft box, and when using the reflectors..it adds just a touch of tone that you wouldn't normally get. Perfect for replicating the sun through a window! I have found no drawback to this reflector... what would make it more amazing.. would be the ability to swap the white for silver on the dish itself.. someday, that'll be.. for now, I have white.. and love it! I'm using a bx500ri with it, and with the minisoft..it works fantastically with the modeling lamp for lower light portraits, as it bounces SO much light!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great beauty dish This is a well priced beauty dish from Elinchrom. Its size makes it portable and easy to carry around. The silver backing makes the light a little more crisp, which I like. If you want one Elichrom diffuser for portraits, this is the one. The only limitation is, Elinchrom don't make grids, it is hard control light spillage when used indoors. It is not an issue outdoors. An additional benefit is that the smaller size makes it quite usueful outdoors when it is windy. Bigger reflectors and softboxes catch too much wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Beauty Dish Bought this BD as a smaller, more travel friendly modifier for some adventure type photography and location portraits where my 50 octa was too big or too wind-prone. It's a bit small, and I wish it were bigger for the days I wasn't' traveling, but for close head shots or for location, it does the trick nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashion photography I love this piece of kit, for me its the ideal light source for beauty or fashion shooting. Harder than a softbox but still with a bit of feathering to shadows and it also gives nice catchlight in the eyes. I wouldnt do a shoot without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product!! I use this for my high school senior photography, and I absolutely love the versatility of this product. I can create soft or hard light and it creates gorgeous images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Beach outdoor shoot Only one minor complain is the plastic nut for the deflector looks out of place as it sticks out beyond the reflector, and poke against the diffuser cover...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok by itself - very good with diffuser Creates and uneven catchlight in the eyes when used by itself (the outer rim is brighter). Would be better if the dish was deeper.. I am glad I followed Scott Kelby's recommendation and purchased it with the 17 diffuser. The combo gives a nice result, although the outer rim is a bit brighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real Beauty Dish I've read a lot about this piece of equipment and now that I own it I can not live without it, it is really flattering how the splash of light becomes so uniform and evenly shower my subjects on head shots or portraits. The quality is superb!It is a must have in your arsenal...
