Elinchrom Portalite Softbox 66x66cm
The Portalite diffuser and black-silver tissue are the same quality materials which Elinca uses for Rotalux but priced to budget. The EL Speed-Ring and rods are re-designed and the result is a softbox better stability and is easier to assemble. Portalite is an entry-level softbox system with great light performance and fits to all Prolinca and Elinchrom flash units since 1974. Instead of using third party accessories, which may not fit to required specifications, Portalite is a professional and low price alternative.
A good fitBy: James McArdle on 16 June 2017This is a small soft box that imitates the South light (North light in Northern hemisphere) of a very small skylight or window, and excellent for portraits . The illumination is even and in photographing highly glazed ceramics I could detect no hot spot in reflections of the Elinchrom 500 head to which it was attached. The white balance was unaffected and as long as at least the white screen of the front of the lightbox is kept protected from dirt and stains in the cloth envelope provided it should remain so, though I do check the white balance of my light sources regularly. The soft box fits securely and decisively onto the universal locking ring of all Elinchrom units, and is squared in orientation to the stand regardless of which locking point used. Handy little unit very useful for on-location jobs because of its compactness. For photography of ceramics in the future I will be buying a tall profile soft box because this unit shows up as a distinct square reflection in glossy surfaces.
