Elinchrom EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS

Available for Nikon or Canon, the EL-Skyport Plus HS Transmitter Elinchrom introduces a game- changing wireless solution that's compatible with 3 generations of transceivers and flash heads and offers Hi-Sync flash sync speeds up to 1/8,000 sec.

The 20 channel transmitter is immediately recognizable by its large LCD screen that automatically displays every light in your setup. This Visual Feedback Interface allows you to control and instantly view the  modeling light settings and flash intensity of BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB flash heads, as well as the EL-Skyport Transceiver RX for the Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems. Operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency, It has an enhanced wireless range too, triggering and controlling your flash heads at a distance of 196' indoors through obstructions and 656' in line-of-sight outdoors.

One of the transmitters's most exciting features is Hi-Sync technology that lets you use shutter speeds far shorter that your camera's fastest sync speed - up to 1/8,000 sec.! Whether you use it to overpower the sun, freeze action, darken backgrounds, or select wider apertures, Hi-Sync opens up a new realm of exposure possibilities. You can even fine tune the transmitter's trigger signal with ODS (Over Drive Sync) for optimal exposures at high shutter speeds. Users can immediately see what mode they're in since the backlit display glows green for normal mode and red for High Speed Sync.

The EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS runs on AA batteries and has a future-proofing mini USB connection for firmware updates.
