The Elinchrom Rotalux 150cm Indirect Octa is a new design, based on the Rotalux softbox range that allows the photographer to mount an Elinchrom flash head inside the softbox via an included adapter ring. The resultant rear-facing flash produces a superb crisp light, when used open without a diffuser and can be modified to a soft light, with softer shadows, by using the included diffuser making it ideal for both fashion and beauty work. The unit mounts directly to a heavy duty light stand (EL31043 or heavier recommended) and the direction is controlled with the handle on the rear of the softbox. The Rotalux design means this softbox can be folded down umbrella style without the need for dismantling and stored in the included carry bag.

Ideal for use on location shoots, the quick-to-assemble, durable Phottix Transfolder Softbox 60x60cm is a collapsible and portable softbox thats designed to work with speed rings and studio lights. Perfect for hotshoe flashes or studio lights, it produces a soft, even light which reduces any photo-spoiling hot spots. Inner and outer diffusers are included, as is a convenient carry bag.
The Westcott 16" x 30" Apollo Strip Softbox provides complete control with the convenience of being built on an umbrella frame meaning it can be quickly assembled or put away. Its narrow profile makes it an ideal rim, hair or accent light and the recessed front edge means light is even and directional. It can be mounted either vertically or horizontally providing extreme flexibility. Most studio flash heads or flashguns can be used and a light stand and hotshoe mount bracket are included in this kit.
Designed to fit directly onto the barn doors of the BBS Area 48 LED light, the DoP SnapBag is an easy-to-install softbox that narrows the lights 160° beam to 90°. It features silver foil lining, which produces a crisp light. A 1/4 diffuser cloth is also included, to soften the light.
For ease of transportation and storage - either for the location photographer on-the-go or for studio photographers with more kit than floor space - this folding softbox is unbeatable. The frame is made from lightweight fibreglass rods whose design ensures that the softbox collapses tidily and easily away in seconds. The reflective liner is dimpled - creating a very even light - and an inner and outer diffuser is included, along with a carry-bag.
The Elinchrom Rotalux 60x80cm Rectangular Softbox is ideal for general use including portrait and product photography. The easy mounting Rotalux system is probably the most widely copied of all Softbox systems. However, it is easier to copy a design than a quality and they remain the best units in their class. What continues to make the Elinchrom units unique are the sets of deflectors gold, silver and translucent that fit centrally over the flashtube allowing the contrast and colour to be modified. Folding down like an umbrella, they are easy to erect, dismantle and transport in their included carrying bag. The Rotalux Speedring mechanics have been improved and is extremely light weight, only 263g. Rotalux softboxes are available in a variety of sizes and shapes for a range of uses.
