    Comments about Elinchrom Skyport ECO Transmitter:

    The Skyport ECO Transmitter came included with my Elinchrom D-Lites set and it does the job. Every once in a while during a shoot, it will not fire the strobes, I'm not sure why. I dislike that it does not have an off switch. To shut it down, I have to open the compartment and remove the battery - rather inconvenient. It is also a tight fit on the camera's hot shoe, perhaps because it's new.

      Comments about Elinchrom Skyport ECO Transmitter:

      This skyport came with the Elinchrom D-lite-it kit I purchased. It has worked flawlessly since the day I got it and it hasn't stopped performing. I use it with Sony Alpha camera system and it has helped me create some amazing portraits.
