Lighting The Spirit with the New Elinchrom ELB 1200

Michael Clark did a real-size field test to push the ELB 1200 to its limits. Working with Red Bull Athlete, Rafa Ortiz, Red Bull Photography and some intense ingredients he ended up with astonishing results.

I don’t think there is any other flash system on the market that can deal with the torture we dished out and survive—and there definitely isn’t any other system that is as versatile as the ELB 1200 - said Michael-


@rafaortizkayak dropping Spirit Falls on the Little White Salmon river in southern Washington state. On this assignment for @elinchrom_ltd and @redbullphotography I was asked to take the Elinchrom ELB1200 packs and create something stunning. With the help of Rafa Ortiz, @rushsturges and @liamfield9 we were able to craft a series of whitewater kayaking images that are some of the best images I have ever shot. The ELB 1200 was more than up to the task and they took a lot of punishment on this assignment, including being used in a fully running waterfall with nothing covering the unit. I was trying to kill one of the packs but couldn't. The only way I can see to kill one of the ELB1200s would be to toss it into the river and even then it might still keep working once it dried out. Read all about this epic assignment and see the behind the scenes video on the Elinchrom website at Elinchrom also just announced their stellar trade-in offer for those that own the Rangers. #elinchrom #elinchromelb1200 #lightingthespirit #rafaortiz #kayaking #spiritfalls #nikon @nikonusa #hisync #hs #redbullphotography #whitewaterkayaking #littlewhitesalmon
