With its large 75 inch diameter surface area and wide coverage, the Indirect Litemotiv Octa Softbox from Elinchrom prompts many photographers to make it their only light source. Ideal for everything from fashion to portraiture, the Octa is a prime example of the signature quality of light possible from this type of shaped modifier. Push it back to cover larger subjects or pull it close for a real demonstration of its famous wrap-around light. It also reflects natural-looking star shaped catchlights in the subject's eyes.
Called Indirect because of how its rear-firing design softens the light output, the Litemotiv Octa boasts an edge to edge brightness without hotspots, yet can take the heat when it has to. The black-backed silver reflective material is rated for lamps up to 650W, and the unique folding system allows you to quickly break it down for transport or storage. Each Leitmotiv comes with both a front and interior diffuser, as well as a quality made carrying case.
The Litemotiv Octa can be used with Elinchrom or Profoto flash heads with separate purchase of an adapter.
