Rotolight launches universal r90/r120 Parabolic Softbox Umbrellas

British LED lighting manufacturer, Rotolight has announced a new range of Rotolight R-90/R-120 Universal Parabolic Softbox Umbrellas that enable photographers, cinematographers and content creators to easily produce beautiful, high quality, soft light in any situation.

Made from a highly durable, highly reflective material, the R90/R120 are the ultimate softboxes, ideal for your key light for portraiture, wedding, commercial, fashion and video applications. This state of the art 16-sided light-shaper that is ideal in both location and studio-based settings and offers stunning, soft light output with a crisp edge that lends dimension and focussed detail to the subject whilst producing natural-looking catchlights.

Both sizes come with removable 1-stop outer and 0.5 inner baffle diffusion panels, which can be combined to create a 1.5-stop diffusion level; used individually, or not at all to achieve a variety of contrast levels. The diffuser panels are made from state-of-the-art advanced diffuser materials to offer minimal pass through light loss. In addition, a high-quality, 40-degree fabric Honeycomb Grid is included, allowing users to fine-tune soft light in any indoor or outdoor shooting scenario.

“Following the launch of our award-winning AEOS 2 and NEO 3 lights, we’re delighted to be able to announce exciting new accessories that our customers have been asking for. These will help users create stunning soft light and the perfect complement to our new Rotolight products. We are very excited to see what Rotolight users create with them. The possibilities are endless.” Rod Aaron Gammons, CEO, Rotolight.

The Rotolight R90’s innovative quick-release system allows users to set up the softbox in a matter of seconds, saving time on a shoot. 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. Additionally, as native Bowens Mount modifiers, the R90/R120 are ideal for a range of studio flash and speedlights utilising Bowens mount, opening up creative opportunities for photographers and filmmakers and making the new modifiers a go-to choice, regardless of the user’s choice of lighting brand.
