Reveal your talent

Thanks to the excellent quality of Elinchrom’s diffusing and reflective fabric, your portraits and product shots will seriously stand out.

Stay in control

With optional Rotagrid 30° degree grids to suit the size and shape of each Rotalux softbox, you can control and reduce the spread of light to create your ideal shot.

Move up a level

Opt for the deflector set  to take advantage of Elinchrom’s unique central shaft. It lets you modify the softness, hardness and color like no other  softbox system.
