RotolaigThe R-90 / R-120 Universal Parabolic Softbox has announced a new range of umbrellas designed to allow users to easily create beautiful, high-quality, soft lighting.
The Universal Parabolic Softbox Umbrella is made from a highly durable, highly reflective material. This 16-sided light-shape is ideal for both location and studio-based environments. Rotolite claims that they produce a Soft light output with a crisp edge that lends subject dimension and focused detail while creating a natural-looking catchlight.
Both versions of the Universal Parabolic Softbox Umbrella come with a removable 1-stop outer and 0.5 inner baffle diffusion panel. You can combine the two to create a 1.5-stop diffusion layer. Rotolite says diffuser panels use advanced diffuser materials to offer minimal pass-through light loss. Rotolite also has a 40-degree fabric honeycomb grid.
Rotolight R90s uses a quick-release system that allows users to quickly set up Softbox. Used with Rotolite’s new universal Bowens / Elinchrome adapter, users can mount any model of Rotolite AEOS or NEO or alternatively any LED light with 1/4 ”20 thread. They can be used with a range of studio flash and speedlights using Buenos Aires.
