              Confusing models with new 'Speed' offers

              Cons

              • Flimsy

              Best Uses

                Comments about Elinchrom EL-Skyport Transceiver RX:

                Works great, however it should just be built into the ranger rx like it in in the ranger quadras. Easy to destroy if the battery pack tipped over while it was plugged in on top, although I have yet to have it happen to me. Important: at this point, the 'Speed' modes with Elinchrom Skyport DO NOT work with this receiver. You can use a universal SPEED receiver plugged into the sync port of a ranger rx to get speed mode, but not wireless adjustment of power level. Confusing, eh?

                    Just plug it in and forget about it. It has no batteries or on/off switch. It just becomes part of the power pack getting its power from there. My only complaint is that it wasn't just built into the pack!

                        I shot my first wedding reception, all manual exposure, using a single, well-used Nikon SB-28DX mounted on an 8' lightstand bouncing off a tall ceiling. It was fired by the Elinchrom EL-Skyport system. It worked flawlessly every single time for over 500 shots. Excellent quality.

                          It is designed to work with the Style 600 RX and its main transmitter; once connected, they worked flawlessly and effortlessly; easy instruction to follow and it did not take me a long time to get it to work with my Style 600 Rx; just follow the instruction, set the channel and boom...flash!!!
                          nice work Elinchrom!highly recommended, Good luck to you...
