Elinchrom announces the release of the ELB 1200 - the Premier adventure light for photographers.
Photographers can now order the unit and experiment its capabilities on their own starting by the end of August 2017.
Lightweight, Compact & Weather-Resistant
Weighing only 4.3 kg (9.3 lbs.)
The ELB 1200 is revolutionizing the photographic industry by allowing photographers to carry smaller, more powerful packs to every possible location their adventures may take them. This unit is built to work in the most demanding environments.
Performance At Every Level
Speed is the operative word. The pack can deliver its 1200Ws symmetrically or asymmetrically in 1/10 F-stop steps and variable over 8.5 F-stops allowing photographers to either overpower the sun or shoot wide open. The pack recycles to full power in 1.7 in fast mode with bursts of up to 20 flashes per second.
The built-in Skyport® protocol with 20 frequency channels and 4 groups provides seamless synchronisation and control between the ELB 1200 and the Skyport transmitters.
Lighting For All Applications
The ELB 1200 can be complemented with one of its three newly designed flash heads (Action, Hi-Sync and Pro) with a rugged aluminium housing, a new tilt head, and a 7-8 mm central umbrella.
The Hi-Sync head, in combination with the Skyport transmitter HS is optimized for Hi-Sync photography.
True to its name, the Action head will give you the fastest flash duration of all with a 1/8850s, when set to 172Ws. This head is ideal when working at normal shutter speeds or with medium-format cameras with leaf shutter lenses.
The Pro head is a great all-rounder with a flash duration of 1/5050s at 140Ws.
"The new lighting options, even from far away, is incredibly exciting from a creative perspective."
Michael Clark - Adventure Photographer
