p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Recommendation for 7" Elinchrom barndoors?


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.
