      I have four heads, three packs, four batteries in a ThinkTank Airport Security V2 and I take them everywhere. These are great lights, costly, but worth it. I use them all the time. Love them...

      Speed Mode is not Hypersync

        Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Hybrid RX Lead-Gel Battery 2-Light Pro A Kit:

        For the most part this is a great kit. Super light, portrable, well made. The interface is not terribly user-friendly, but with reading the manuals I've been able to find my way around. But the included skyport radio transmitor does not get my camera (canon 5d Mark III) into the "hypersync" mode to sync above 1/250th. That is certainly not what I thought I was buying.

        The folks at Elichrom have told me "Sync speed is ultimately a function of the camera. The Skyport system has a "speed mode", but you're still limited to the camera's 1/250 sync speed. If you're looking to do Hypersync and break that 1/250 sync speed barrier, then you need a PocketWizard remote system for that. HyperSync is a feature exclusive to PocketWizard radios that allows you to shoot at speeds faster than your cameras X-Sync while using studio strobes, like the Elinchrom Ranger Quadra. It works best with the Elinchrom "S" heads as their flash duration allows the PW time to do it's calculation. Elinchrom "A" heads are too fast for this and are not as effective. For more on Hypersync, go here... http://wiki.pocketwizard.com/index.php?title=HyperSync

        Thought others should no this before they buy.

          Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Hybrid RX Lead-Gel Battery 2-Light Pro A Kit:

          The whole system is built really well. The quadras doesn't work with rotalux softboxes as the mounts are larger than the quadra heads support. I think I just assumed the softboxes fit and didn't pay attention that they did not.

          Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Hybrid RX Lead-Gel Battery 2-Light Pro A Kit:

          I have to say I started out with an Alienbee light, then going to this light kit was one of the best things I have done. I do enjoy my Alienbee,but this one is so much lighter and more powerful than the Alienbee.

          This light kit is light weight, the battery has a little bit of weight but nothing to bad. I love the sky port, which I am still able to use my pocket wizards with this unit. I just needed a sync cable which I already had. I just added my sky port right on top of my mini.

          My only complaint with the unit is the cords on the lights are a little to short.
          Other than that I love this kit. I am plaining on buying another one in the next few months.
