Elinchrom Octabox 175cm Overview
Known for its flexibility and superior construction, the 69″ Rotalux Octabox from Elinchrom has a very large surface area that gives it a pronounced wrap around quality of light, especially when used up close, that makes it popular for fashion, groups, and large sets. The Octabox is so large that many photographers use it as their only light source since it offers delicate illumination and open shadows. The Octabox’s unique shape also reflects natural-looking catchlights in the eyes of your subject. The softbox has removable interior and exterior white diffusers that can be used one at a time, together, or not at all for different contrast and softness options.
Optional translucent deflectors bounce light to the back of the Octabox to remove the hotspot and further soften the light. A separately purchased hooded diffuser limits spill light, while an optional collapsible fabric grid narrows the beam angle and thwarts spill light. The light shaper’s separately purchased speed ring has spring-loaded sockets that allow you to mount the support poles in sockets tension-free, then snap them into place. The Octabox has a silver interior for maximum output and comes with a bag for storage and transport.
