The Rotalux Mini Recta is a smaller version of the Junior Recta with its 14" x 35" size.
It features a rotating speedring mount for exact angle positioning, spring loaded self-locking struts for fast, easy set-up, and durable snap fasteners to quickly attach the inner diffuser.
Like all Elinchrom light modifiers, the geometrics of the Rotalux softboxes are precisely engineered to the focal length and light pattern unique to all Elinchrom flash heads. This feature, along with the "double diffusion" design ensures the exceptional evenness and softness Elinchrom softboxes are famous for.

OK, I've always been one of those guys who would buy off-brands to save a buck. Well, I finally broke down and bought this Elinchrom softbox to go with my Eli Styles... WOW is all I can say. Construction is top-notch. Good sewing, finish is impeccable, and metalwork on the speedring is excellent. Simple to set up and use, and it all fits EASILY into the VERY well-made carry case. Light enough to go on a boom without worries. Easy adjustment to rotate the box around the head -nice for creativity. Price appears high, but if you have Eli lights, it comes out cheaper than buying a decent-quality box and speedring (beat the comperable Creative Light box by about $20.00 once cost of speedring was included). This changed my opinion on modifiers, and I WILL be buying more Eli boxes.
I have several larger elinchrom softboxes and this is now my favorite for lighting one person. Super-portable - I don't even break it down when going on location shoots. I use this as my key light and it can pull off many different lighting scenerios, depending on where it is in relation to my subject. For this price, this is all I need!
