FAQ

Rotalux

How to clean the White Diffuser of a Softbox?

Do not wash a White Diffuser yourself; the white color and the black frame might change.
To clean the Diffuser, we advise contacting a dry cleaner shop.
In case something goes wrong, you can order a new diffuser as a spare part from your local Elinchrom Distributor.

Old Elinchrom units compatibility with current accessories

We use the same Elinchrom mount since 1974, which means old units are still compatible with actual accessories.
