        Comments about Elinchrom Rotalux Softbox for Flash (14 x 35"):

        The light with the little diffuser panel within is soft yet clear. My first use was for a nude self-portrait (don't ask); I was sitting and the mini-strip box lit one side. This softbox is much easier to assemble than the Portalite softox that comes with the BXRI-kit. If you also want to use the mini strip-box as an accent light, then you will need the "Hooded Diffuser for Rotalux Mini Rectangular 14x35". Had I realized I would have ordered the box with the hood at one time. Only because of the inconvenience of 2 orders do I not rate the product as *****.

          I love Elinchrom's line of Rotalux Softboxes and my collection has grown because of that. This particular model is wonderful for small scale product photography and rim lighting on portraits. I would highly recommend this product to anyone interested in studio photography. A very good choice.

                Great little strip softbox. Elinchrom make quality and lite boxes. I use two of them for products shooting. They are bit small, so not versatile, but excellent for this purpose.

                      I have Elinchrom 500 BXRi strobes and this strip bank connects easily to them. This strip bank has a silver reflective lining and 2 diffusers...an inner one and outer one...if you really need the extra soft light for your situation. It's great as a back light or hair light to help capture sharp/clean edges. I've put together several softboxes and this one is sturdy and no more difficult than other square/rectangular versions. In fact, it's a breeze compared to octa banks...now those are really hard. :)

                          This softbox offers a wonderful quality of light. My only complaint is that when they are new the assembly is quite a challenge. I am assuming that it will loosen up with use. It's not enough of a complaint to lose a star off the rating.

                                Great size to use as a hair light for most portrait applications. Can also be used as a kicker. Doesn't take a lot of room in comparison to some boxes. Love the Elinchrom products.

                                  Comments about Elinchrom Rotalux Softbox for Flash (14 x 35"):

                                  Used as stip and hair light. Even lighting and build quality is typical of Elinchrom softboxes-high quality. I would have given 5 stars but it is a little tricky to assemble. Once put together it collapses and travels well.

                                    Very nice strip light but if you want a grid for it they are very hard to find. Lighttools have them but the cost of it is very high!!

                                      This is a great softbox for a hairlight or a kicker.
