If you haven't got much experience with the range...

1) The deep octas are as deep as you could want.

The deep octas are too small, 100cm is an 8.8 ft2 area, a 6x4 softbox is about 3x that, 24 ft2. Heck, the deep octa is smaller than the 3x4 I call the "small" softbox.

And the biggest Rotalux, period, is the 100cm square,

I'll stop there while you get your facts right.

Why? I gave you the courtesy of responding when you went on and on and on with your near total absence of facts.

You are getting basic facts wrong,

And so are you.

Except you did it first, and on a much larger scale.

The existence of a poorly performing, too shallow 175mm octagonal box does not negate the fact that the Elinchrom attachment system will not support common modifiers that pretty much every other brand of lights will.

You're acting like someone who's found one typo and is using that to refute an entire thesis.

the 175cm rotalux octa is significantly bigger than the 100cm recta. Period.
If you haven't got much experience with the range why both commenting on it?

Because "the range" is not the issue, the utter inadequacy of the Elinchrom attachment system, compared to competing systems is the issue, and apparently, I have much, much more experience with that than you do.

So, to turn your own question around, if you haven't got much experience with Elinchrom lights using industry standard accessories, why do you keep commenting on it?

Elinchrom users are succesfully using the mola euro, it is significantly heavier than a softbox.

The Mola Euro has its own mount, it supports the light, instead of the other way around. If you haven't got much experience with the range why both commenting on it?
