Elinchrom announces the parabolic extension to its softbox range, the Litemotiv.
With 16 sides these softboxes produce close to perfect circular catch-lights! Complete with heavy duty bracket for precise and easy positioning, all Elinchrom heads can be fitted for optimum results using every combination of the unique Elinchrom Deflector system.
With diameter options of 120 cm and 190 cm, this will be terrific!
Exclusive fabric for exceptional light quality.
Sixteen sided softboxes, creating close to perfect catchlights.
Anodised rod colour coding for faster assembly.
The strong and stable bracket supports all Elinchrom units.
Additional brackets are available for Broncolor, Profoto and Bowens.
Removable rear cover for easier setup and shoot through functionality.
Two diffusers, inner and outer, for perfectly soft diffusion.
Without these diffusers, this is a giant beauty dish.
Unique to Elinchrom, deflectors fine tune the Leitmotiv effect.
Available in 120 and 190 cm.
"It’s like being in London when the sky is cloudy but somehow the sun shines through anyway"

The 16 anodised rods are heat-resistant, enabling work with high temperature light sources. They are made out of flexible aluminium so that they follow the parabolic shape of the Litemotiv. The colour coding of the bracket and rods enable trouble free assembly. These are studio softboxes but their construction make them simple to setup but also to disassemble.
The fabric of the Litemotiv softboxes is unique. It offers 30% more light output than our standard Rotalux fabric, also used for Portalite, while being just as lightweight. It also offers the same distinctive Elinchrom look than our other softboxes but this fabric is heat-resistant, meaning that 650W hot lamps can be used with Litemotiv
Designed to carry the Litemotiv 120 cm and the incredible 190 cm, this bracket takes off all stress from the unit while providing easy positioning of the light.
The Elinchrom Litemotiv bracket is available for:
- Elinchrom users
- Bowens / S-mount users
- Broncolor Pulso mount users
- Profoto users
The double diffusion panels have been specialy designed to produce very soft light. The innner diffuser also incorporates a central circular panel to avoid any hotspot, thus offering the most homogenous light possible.
It is possible to remove both diffusers to obtain a very crispy and contrasty light, similar to beauty dish... but in much bigger!
