Product Highlights
  • Includes Mini Phono Plug & Hot Shoe Cord
  • UNIVERSAL Transmitter, Transceiver
  • Universal Charger
  • Sync Cables, Adapter
To make the EL-Skyport Universal Set truly "universal," there are a couple of very useful ingredients left out of the mix. This B&H Kit fills that gap with the inclusion of an Impact 1' mini phono cord as well as a hot shoe cord to connect the EL-Skyport to just about any other camera or lighting kit.

This Kit Includes:

    Comments about Elinchrom EL-Skyport Universal Radio Slave Set - Starter Kit:

    Sorry to inform you that this product is garbage! I bought this kit plus an additional receiver. Straight out of the box, the separate receiver DID NOT work. It never triggered my flash once. I boxed it up and sent it back. the Transmitter and Receiver Kit, however, did work out of the box. So I figured the separate receiver that I ordered was just defective.
    two days later, I pull out my gear to take some test shots, and the Transmitter/Receiver kit does NOT work. I tried EVERYTHING. I reset the receiver as per the manual.... still didn't work. fresh battery/charge....still didn't work.
    In short, I have concluded that this product is garbage. I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. For some reason, I didn't listen to my own advice and got a junk product.
    A+ to B&H though. They paid for return shipping and customer service is excellent!!!

    Pros

    • Fire everytime
    • Has protective case

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Speedlites Any type
      • Strobes Any type

      Comments about Elinchrom EL-Skyport Universal Radio Slave Set - Starter Kit:

      I have Elichrom Studio strobes with the skyport system already built in and this triggering system gives me the capability to add any light to a scene without having to buy a whole other wireless triggering system.

      These work perfect all the time, I have not had any issues with them not firing, miss firing, or anything else. I teach Photography (introduction, Intermediate, Advanced, and I use them during my class on Canon, Nikons, Pentax, Sony Alpha's, and even an old film camera. I love the recharging ability and how fast they charge along with how long the charge lasts. I was amazed at how many cable options they give for connecting strobes but it lacks a basic speedlight hot shoe cord. If you need to sue with Seeplights as I do then look up this B&H # IMMHSF1PW Impact Mini Phono Plug to Female Hot Shoe Cord for Pocket Wizard. It works really well with my Cannon 430EXII and 55o EX speed lights and the firing distance of nearly 300 feet is really nice as well.

      These come with a nice impact resistant case keeping them safe and compact in my camera bag.

          Comments about Elinchrom EL-Skyport Universal Radio Slave Set - Starter Kit:

          Let me start by saying I'm a professional, licensed photographer with over 15 years experience and a member of the local professional community.
          I bought the kit (first version) and they worked for a little while, then nothing but issues. Miss firing, not firing, you name it, it happened. I even bought an additional receiver, which I wish I would have checked when it arrived, because it never worked right out of the box (didn't find out till much later when I needed it! Build construction is very cheap and the sender is already starting to come apart after normal use (I'm very careful with my gear). Bottom line: DO NOT BUY these units and spend your money on another brand.
