Up to 1/8,000 sec: First Look of New Elinchrom Skyport Hi-Sync
RC Concepcion of kelbyone.com gives you a first look at the new Elinchrom EL-Skyport HS
The Quadra HS Head is a powerful, full-functioning miniaturized flash head which is compatible with the ELB 400 and all previous generations of Quadra packs.
Built to be as portable as possible and weighing only 0.28 kg (0.62 lbs.), this head not only packs well but it is mountable in situations that would be impossible for a full-sized flash head. The HS designation denotes the system’s optimized head for Hi-Sync photography such as high shutter speeds or overpowering the sun and limits the gradient effect to a maximum.
It is ideal to use in conjunction with the new EL-Skyport transmitter Plus HS. The Quadra HS head also integrates a daylight balanced LED modelling lamp that produces the equivalent of 50W of tungsten light output.
There exist many portable accessories dedicated to the the Quadra mount but Elinchrom also offers the Quadra reflector adapter for those who want full access to the complete range of Elinchrom accessories, including Rotalux, Litemotiv, etc.
The head includes an interchangeable 2 m head cable, the Quadra reflector 13.5 cm with multifunction cap and a Quadra protective cap. The new flash head can be purchased either as a single item or in a set with the widely acclaimed ELB 400
