Comments about Elinchrom Quadra Hybrid RX AS with Li-Ion Battery:

I use this with my corporate headshots. I've had the lead battery units for a couple years with almost no problems.
Elinchrom repair is NOT good (takes forever) and so it's best to have backup equipment as rental houses don't have elinchrom gear typically.

Unless you go to profoto, this is the best quality out there. Not cheap but nowhere near cost of profoto. The equipment is also extremely compact and light weight which is great.
Control of light is superb. Consistency is great.
Most parts are made out of plastic and are fiddly so often I prefer to handle them assembly/disassembly on location rather than letting untrained assistants do it, which is a drag.
Also, I finally gave up on skyport triggering. They work and are totally adequate but on every shoot I'd have 5% of shots not have flash due to skyport sync issues and so switched to pocket wizard which is too bad to have to do. But I still use the skyports for power control which is fantastic and a huge plus of this system.
