From Elinchrom Elinchrom Inspires With Two New High End Compact Flash Units
The ELC Pro HD Compacts 500 and 1000 are the world's most complete, feature rich compact studio flash units. The result of over 50 years experience at the forefront of studio lighting technology. Designed and assembled at Elinchrom’s HQ in Switzerland the ELC benefits from the highest Swiss specification.
Elinchrom President Chris Whittle says, ”We set out to make a unit that would not only change the way a photographer works but also the way that they think. We believe the ELC combines everything a photographer needs with everything a photographer wants, plus the consistency and reliability that you expect from Elinchrom.”
Recycling times are lightning fast (0.6s / 1.2s to full power, ELC 500w / ELC 1000w) while Swiss precision guarantees consistency of power output and colour temperature, shot after shot. Furthermore the super fast flash durations (up to 1/5000s / 1/5260s, t0.5, ELC 500 / ELC 1000) enable you to freeze motion like never before.
The ELC is the first unit to incorporate an OLED screen that displays every control for the most professional user experience. As well as Elinchrom’s stop based power scale, you will now be able to see the power in Joules, flash durations and many other settings. A jog wheel provides easy navigation of the new menu. New Shooting Modes
The ELC features three exciting new shooting modes that will literally change the way you create. Sequence Mode - Allows you to sequentially trigger up to 20 ELC’s, in bursts or as a continuous cycle, to utilise the high frame rate of your camera.
Delayed Mode - Provides the option of first or second curtain sync and everything in-between, plus predictive syncronisation within a short sequence.
Strobo Mode - Enables you to take a picture with stroboscopic effects within a single frame.
The new Elinchrom ELC 500 and 1000 Compact Flash units will be available soon with an MSRP of $1,049.99 and $1,449.99, respectively. B&H
