The Elinchrom Rotalux Octabox is very popular among beauty and fashion photographers, as they prefer the round catchlight given by these softboxes. You can make yourself a great folding beauty dish just by removing the front and inner diffusers and adding one of the optional deflectors. The quality of light is outstanding because of it's construction and the internal diffuser provides the softest and most even light possible.
The easy mounting Rotalux system is probably the most widely copied of all softbox systems. However, it is easier to copy a design than it is to make a quality product and it remains the best unit in it's class. The Rotalux is extremely easy and fast to assemble and when it comes time to pack it away it collapses quickly like an umbrella and can be stored in the included padded carry bag ready to use again with only the click of a few snap locks.
