Exciting new product from Elinchrom – ELB500 TTL – and yes it has HSS – I had some time testing out the ELB 1200s and looks like Elinchrom is continuing with its amazing and rugged battery back design. Light weight and powerful the ELB500 TTL is going to revolutionize the portrait game. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a set to actively test this baby out. More to come on that soon.
So the ad is finally out so I can now share this with you.

THANK YOU EVERYONE THAT CAME OUT TO PROFUSION EXPO 2017 IN TORONTO.
IT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS, THANK YOU VISTEK AND ELINCHROM FOR HAVING ME BE PART OF THIS AMAZING TWO DAY EVENT AND ALLOWING ME TO SHARE MY ADVICE AND KNOWLEDGE IN PORTRAITURE AND LIGHTING.
SPECIAL THANKS TO ANTHONY FROM VISTEK AND BILL FROM GNIGAMI THAT MADE EVERYTHING RUN SO SMOOTHLY. THANK YOU TO TOMMY JAMES MURPHY FOR BEING OUR MODEL FOR THE EXPO.
HERE ARE FEW OF THE SHOTS THAT WERE CREATED AT PROFUSION EXPO 2017
ALL IMAGES WERE LIT WITH THE ELB1200 AND ELB400 WITH HI-SYNC. IMAGES WERE SHOT AT f1.4 AT 1/3200s ON THE NIKON D5
So after a long wait, I finally got my hands on the Elinchrom‘s New ELB 1200s with a Pro and Action head.
From the jump, this is not your daddy’s Ranger RX. It’s light, it’s small and it’s super powerful. One thing I really like was that Elinchrom took time and designed the new ELB 1200s to survive photographers like me, they really went to town to weatherproof and create a durable product.
The heads themselves are impressive from design to weight. Sadly I couldn’t get my hands on a HS head but hopefully soon.
Check out some of the shots from my test shoot.
Special thanks to Vistek for lending me the ELB 1200s. Can’t wait to get a set of my own.
