The Excitingly New Elinchrom ELB 400 - Most Portable, Compact and Versatile Outdoor Flash Unit

Posted on Mar 14, 2015 in News: Studio Lighting & Accessories, Elinchrom

 

 

Ever since Elinchrom launched the Ranger Quadra, the first portable studio flash system in 2009, demand has grown for portable and truly versatile solutions to enable photographers to use the flash outdoors, where their creativity is endless. 

The New ELB 400 is going a step further, taking the whole system to a higher level of creativity. Enhanced with the intuitive Elinchrom OLED display, the ELB 400 now offers the same special features of the ELC Pro HD series such as strobo, delay and sequence mode. Outdoor creativity has just been redefined!

On the move, size is everything. Quadra heads are smaller, lighter and way more powerful than traditional speedlites. Tristan Shu, a French Sport photographer speaks from his own experience

“Having enough power while being at the bottom of a snow crevasse at -10°C under several meters of snow to take pictures of ski riders jumping above me was something I’ve been dreaming of for a long time. The compactness of the ELB 400 system made them the perfect tool for the task, I was able to set these powerful lights in places where bigger lights wouldn’t have fit - and would have been such a logistic nightmare to carry over. The ELB 400 is so reliable, one less problem to solve, it makes my day so much easier!“.

Versatility is commonly a misused word. More than just a portable studio flash solution, the ELB 400 invites you to adventure, travelling and playing. Wherever your beginning in photography, shooting sport, reportage or even studio photography, the ELB 400 is a real creative tool for every photographer. Compatibility with all previous Quadra batteries, cables, heads and accessories is guaranteed. The whole Elinchrom range of accessories is compatible using the Quadra Reflector Adapter. 

 

Choose between a Quadra Action Head or Quadra Pro Head sets.  

 

 

 

 

  

Choose Quadra Action Head sets when flash duration is crucial and you want to freeze your subject’s motion.

 

 

 

 

 

Choose Quadra Pro Head sets when more power is needed on location. These heads are also for use in conjunction with HyperSync enabled triggers.
