You guys did such a great job helping me with the grids, I was wondering about the barn doors. Will AB barn doors fit on my Elinchrom 7" reflectors? If not, is there a 3rd party barn door that will fit?

The best barndoors bar none are the Lowel ones. The expandable door panels make them much more useful than any others I have come across.

Profoto make a special reflector just for the Lowel doors, it is smaller than most reflectors. I don’t know how they would do with Elinchrom reflectors or if Elinchrom makes a reflector of the right size.

I also occasional use a Hensel barndoor set on a 7 inch reflector, although I had to modify it slightly to fit. (I think the Profoto 7 inch reflectors may be slightly larger than 7 inches.)

One thing worth noting is the Elinchrom snoot with 10º grid. It is one of the few I know that mounts directly without the need for a reflector – very handy. It is one of my main reasons for having a Profoto to Elinchrom adaptor.

Sorry to dig up an old thread. But do the linked lowel barn doors work on just the Profoto 7" grid reflector? What about the Zoom reflector 2?
