Elinchrom ELB 400

The Next Level in Outdoor Flash Photography

Why the Elinchrom ELB 400?

Specifically designed for photographers who like to travel light but packing enough power to overpower the sun

The best flash duration is at full power where you need it when you are out on a sunny location.

The built-in Skyport system enables seamless synchronization between your camera and the ELB 400.

The OLED display features a rich and quick access to all features.
