Whether in studio or on location, pro photographers benefit from lighting solutions that are flexible and fast while offering a full range of lighting options in a highly portable package. The ELB 500 TTL has a feature set that includes TTL or manual settings, HSS (high-speed sync) at up to 1/8000 second, and compatibility with Skyport via the Elinchrom Transmitter PRO. The versatility extends to power supply, which can be sourced via mains for studio work (dubbed “Active Charging”) or via battery when on location. Numerous studio lighting options are available when used with two asymmetrical controllable heads with optional flash durations for action (1/20,000 second) and normal (1/3400 second) and rapid recycling times.
