Rotolight has announced a new range of R-90/R-120 Universal Parabolic Softbox Umbrellas that were designed so that users could easily produce beautiful, high quality, soft light.
The Universal Parabolic Softbox Umbrellas are made from a highly durable, highly reflective material. This 16-sided light-shaper is ideal for both location and studio-based environments. Rotolight claims that they produce a soft light output with a crisp edge that lends dimension and focussed detail to the subject whilst producing natural-looking catchlights.
Both versions of the Universal Parabolic Softbox Umbrellas come with removable 1-stop outer and 0.5 inner baffle diffusion panels. You can al;so combine both of them to create a 1.5-stop diffusion level. Rotolight states that the diffuser panels utilize advanced diffuser materials to offer minimal pass-through light loss. Rotolight also includes a 40-degree fabric Honeycomb Grid.
The Rotolight R90s use a quick-release system that allows users to set up the softbox quickly. When combined with Rotolight’s new Universal Bowens/Elinchrom adaptor users can mount any model of Rotolight AEOS or NEO, or alternatively any LED light featuring a 1/4” 20 thread. They could also be used with a range of studio flash and speedlights utilizing Bowens mount.
