Elinchrom announces the most portable, compact and versatile outdoor flash unit, the ELB 400.
Renens, the 06th March 2015 - Ever since Elinchrom launched the Ranger Quadra, the first portable studio flash system in 2009, demand has grown for portable and truly versatile solutions to enable photographers to use flash outdoors, where their creativity is endless
This year the ELB 400 is going a step further, taking the whole system to a higher level of creativity.
Enhanced with the intuitive Elinchrom OLED display, the ELB 400 now offers the same special features of the ELC Pro HD series such as strobo, delay and sequence mode. Outdoor creativity has just been redefined!
On the move, size is everything. Quadra heads are smaller, lighter and way more powerful than traditional speedlites. Tristan Shu, a French Sport photographer speaks from his own experience : “Having enough power while being at the bottom of a snow crevasse at -10°C under several meters of snow to take pictures of ski riders jumping above me was something I’ve been dreaming of for a long time. The compactness of the ELB 400 system made them the perfect tool for the task, I was able to set these powerful lights in places where bigger lights wouldn’t have fit - and would have been such a logistic nightmare to carry over. The ELB 400 is so reliable, one less problem to solve, it makes my day so much easier!“.
Versatility is commonly a misused word. More than just a portable studio flash solution, the ELB 400 invites you to adventure, travelling and playing. Wherever your beginning in photography, shooting sport, reportage or even studio photography, the ELB 400 is a real creative tool for every photographer.
Compatibility with all previous Quadra batteries, cables, heads and accessories is guaranteed. The whole Elinchrom range of accessories is compatible using the Quadra Reflector Adapter.
The ELB 400 will be available this spring in 4 set configurations. The one head To Go set includes one ELB 400 with one higher capacity Lithium-Ion battery, one Quadra head and one Skyport Speed Transmitter, while the two head To Go set includes one ELB 400 with two higher capacity Litium-Ion batteries, two Quadra heads and one Skyport Speed Transmitter. Both To Go sets are available in Pro or Action configurations.
