Boost your output

Available in two generous sizes, the unique fabric of the Elinchrom Litemotiv Octa softboxes offers brilliant reflectance and gives 30% more light output than standard Rotalux fabric. Robust and heat-resistant, you can use it with 650W hot lamps too.

Sublimate your subject

16 sides give you an almost perfect circle to achieve spectacular catchlights in the eyes. Color-coded for easy assembly and disassembly, the 16 heat-resistant, anodized rods are made out of flexible aluminum to follow the parabolic shape.

Double your diffusion

Two diffusers, inner and outer, make all the difference when you’re looking for very soft results. A central circular panel in the inner diffuser ensures you avoid hotspots and create the most homogenous light possible. Without the diffusers, the Litemotiv Octa becomes one giant beauty dish to create crisper, more contrasting light in any given area.

Dare the extreme

The strong, stable bracket supports both the Litemotiv Octa 120 cm and the incredible Litemotiv Octa 190 cm at any angle, however extreme. It takes all the stress off the unit while making it easy for you to position the light. It’s ideal for all Elinchrom users as well as Bowens (S-mount), Broncolor and Profoto users.
