The Elinchrom D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 Flash Head raises the bar on the capabilities of a lightweight, portable strobe. The auto-sensing, multi-voltage flash D-Lite RX 4 recognizes any AC power source from 90-260VAC, allowing power variability over 5.0 stops in 1/10 stop increments. Recycling is a lightning-fast 0.35-1.6 sec. (115V) with flash durations as short as an action-stopping 1/800 sec at full power. But that's just the beginning.

The D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 is packed with professional and convenience features usually found in flash heads twice its price. Forget about tripping over PC cords. Although this head accepts one it also has a built-in EL-Skyport Receiver with eight frequency channels that can handle four distinct groups of flashes. Separate purchase of the EL Skyport ELS Speed Transmitter not only allows you to trigger your flash at distances up to 393' but gives you control of power on/off, modeling light functions and Speed Sync activation. Free software for Mac and PC computers is available, providing additional features such as Flash-Delay for strobing effects. Add an optional Wi-Fi module to the transmitter and you can use specially designed apps that allow full remote control via your for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

D-Lite 400W/s RX 4's bayonet mount accepts all Elinchrom accessories and softboxes up to 53" (135 cm). It comes with a power cord with a U.S. plug, sync cord, flash tube and protective cap. The included 120V 100W modeling lamp must be swapped out when using the unit in nominal 230V electrical environments.

    Comments about Elinchrom D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 Flash Head:

    Love the light - worked great. My only 2 complaints are 1) have to use an elinchrom transmitter. The generic one I had didn't cause it to fire and 2) the manual that came with it was useless. Googled it and watched a YouTube video to learn the different features.

      Comments about Elinchrom D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 Flash Head:

      Lightweight, reliable light, this is the third I got. Glad to see that Elinchrom fixed the tilt control handle – they had an issue with their previous plastic handle provider so it used to break easily. Built it Skyport receiver makes triggering the light remotely easy if you already own a Skyport transmitter.
