View Full Version : Barn doors for Elinchrom lights

I'm looking for a set of barn doors for my lights.

The Elinchrom versions are £125 each. I don't mind paying for quality, but that's just taking the p*ss.

So.. I'm looking for a third party supplier, mostly on Ebay.

Can anyone recommend a supplier that they've purchased from that fits Elinchrom reflectors ?

Jeremy, I can't offer any constructive advice but I can offer a warning of sorts.

I was in the same position myself. During my research I did find a web article/blog where someone claimed that the cheaper Interfit EXD200 set fitted the Elinchrom 21cm holder. I went ahead and bought one and it certainly does NOT fit.
I have some basic engineering skills myself but i couldn't adapt it to fit and stay attached.

Just incase you come across the same article.

Update:
After my last post, I managed to find my trusty Dremel and cut 2 small notches in my 21cm accessory holder. The interfit products now fit perfectly.

Thanks guys.

As a complete fluke, I was at the house of a friend who's dad is a retired architectural photographer. He was clearing out his garage and said if there's anything I wanted to take it.

And guess what... !!! :D
