Elinchrom Quadra overview

  • 1Description

The Quadra Living Light Kit with Lead Battery, S Head and Transmitter was put together by Elinchrom to offer on the go photographers a turnkey location lighting solution. The kit includes the 400Ws Quadra Hybrid RX Pack, a lead-gel battery, multi-voltage charger, 8.2' flash head cable, sync cable, and an ELS Transmitter Speed for remote triggering of the flash.

The Quadra Hybrid RX Pack with Lead-Gel Battery pack delivers an impressive 400Ws of power in a small package that weighs in at only 6.6 lb. while offering has portability, flexibility and professional convenience features you would expect from a company of Elinchrom's stature. The powerful pack can recycle in 0.41 to 2.26 seconds at 115V with full power flash durations as short as 1/3,000 sec. with the S (Standard) head and 1/5,700 with the A (Action) head. The Quadra Hybrid RX has a 6.6 stop power range that's variable in 1/10 stops and can distribute power in a fixed 2:1 asymmetrical ratio (66 - 33%) or 100% through one head.

The pack has a built-in ELS Skyport Receiver with 8 channels that can handle 4 distinct groups of flashes and not only allows you to trigger your pack at distances up to 393' but gives you control of power, on/off, modeling light functions and HyperSync activation. Free software for Mac and PC computers is available with the transmitter to add additional features a they become available. Add an optional USB Wi-Fi module for computer control and software that allows you to use specially designed apps that allow full remote control via your for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

The full-functioning miniaturized S flash head which is ideally mated to the 400Ws Ranger Quadra Hybrid battery-powered pack. At only 0.6 lb and measuring only 5.9 x 3.3 x 3.1", the head not only packs well and is eminently portable, but is mountable in situations that would be impossible for a full-sized flash head.

The "S" designation for Standard, might look like the head is an under-performer as compared to its "A" counterpart, but on the contrary, the Standard is capable of very fast flash durations as short as 1/3,000 sec - perfectly adequate for nearly all applications. The Hybrid S Head does away with conventional halogen modeling lamps in favor of a low-draw LED lamp that produces the tungsten equivalent of 50W, and ships with a standard 5.3" umbrella reflector. Elinchrom also offers the EL-RQ adapter for those who want to use standard full-sized accessories and reflectors. The head comes with a removable 8.2' head cable. Optional 5.0' and 11.5' cables are available.

The Elinchrom Skyport SPEED Transmitter can control basic functions of Elinchrom units such as the BXRI 250/500, Ranger Quadra and D-Lite-it with their built-in ELS Receiver, and Elinchrom RX units to which a Transceiver RX (not included) is attached. The Skyport remote control system works at distances up to 196' (60m) indoors and up to 393' (120m) outdoors and syncs at up to 1/250 sec. It can control flashes in 4 selectable workgroups, and there are 8 frequency channels for interference-free operation.

 

  • Ranger Quadra Hybrid RX Pack With Lead-Gel Battery

    The Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Hybrid RX Pack With Lead-Gel Battery pack delivers an impressive 400W/s of power in a small package that weighs in at only 6.6 lb. But that's just the beginning. It has portability, flexibility and professional convenience features you would expect from a company of Elinchrom's stature. Besides power it has speed and can recycle in 0.41 to 2.26 seconds at 115V at flash durations as short as nearly 1/6,000 sec. But what's power without control? The Quadra Hybrid has a 6.6 stop power range that's variable in 1/10 stops and can distribute power symmetrically or asymmetrically.

    It also has a built-in EL-Skyport Receiver with 8 frequency channels that can handle 4 distinct groups of flashes.

The Hybrid S Head does away with conventional halogen modeling lamps in favor of a low-draw LED Pilotlight that produces the tungsten equivalent of 50-60W, depending on your choice of the standard, included 70 degree or optional 55 degree reflector.

Elinchrom Quadra reviews

Quadra Living Light Kit with Lead Battery, S Head and Transmitter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Light but worst interface This is great product for portability with 400ws but interface is not good.. it might look simple enough to understand but you get lost what blink means and other stuff.. you have to look at your manual in order to remember yourself. worst is battery power level indication. it's not accurate can't tell how much you have. sometime it goes out completely and comeback. I can't trust. I guess this is one of the reason why they upgrade to ELB version which is more expansive. I don't like when product was update and consumer have to pay for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice kit at a great price I bought this kit while it was on sale, and I think it is one of the best buys I have made. Set up is simple and it works right out of the box. This isn't as light as the quadra elb 400, it is about 2 pounds heavier but still very portable. The light quality is great and very consistent from low power to full power. At 1/3 the price of the ELB 400 kit, this is a very good buy. I have rarely use it at full power and have taken a couple hundred shots and still have about 1/2 charge on the battery so unless you really need the extra pops of the lithium battery models, I think this kit is a great buy even at list price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Location Light I've been using the Lithium battery version for a few years now and it has been amazing. But now that the new Elinchrom Skyport HS has come out it's a new ballgame. So I added this unit which is about 1/2 what I paid for my first one. You can't go wrong with these Quadra's they do it all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong portable studio lights for remote work Great Portable studio lights, teamed up with a new Skyport Plus HS, Used this on its first few remote shoots and it work very well. I did add the adapter to allow the Quadra Pro head to fit all my Elinchrom studio softboxes. The mounts work well with the small light softboxes that came with the D-LiteIT flash kit. Not sure if I would mount them to my large Potoflex Softboxes and use a stand, that will be time for an assistant to hand hold on monopod. The Lead Battery is heavy compare to the Lithium-Ion batteries. Plus the older model has a few less features than the ELB400 but for almost 40% less I was willing to buy. Total control from the top of my camera and half the setup time of using speed lights or other flashes that I own. The part all fit because they are from the same company. The recent price drop made it the right time for me to move from 150Ws to 400Ws for my remote shoots. Setup time and power are a big factor, they blow away any speed light option. It comes with a small Skyport Transmitter that I tape to my meter to trigger for readings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of equipment. Reliable. Easy to use. Consistent. Durable. Powerful. Small... Exactly what I was looking for. The Elinchrom light modifiers are one of the best in the world and all you need to get access to all of them is the MK-II Adapter ($100).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from will buy another Love this unit! Light Quality, design. I have Norman (an old brick type 2000D and a 200 ws) units and an Einstein 640. This model is strong enough for me and the 400 watt power is in the sweet spot for power on location. (Like the light weight head and quick changing battery box which is a hybrid.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional field Flash equipment Multiple head Best move I ever made buying this this quality piece of equipment This bumps your professionalism way up to scale

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome light with tons of output power I love this amazing and versatile kit. You can easily shoot in studio portraits and then go outside and capture some amazing dramatic portraits without carrying multi-flash head set ups. It has plenty of power to overpower back lit situations or complex lighting ratio set ups. Love it so much that I purchased two other kits. Highly recommend.
