With the EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro for Nikon, Elinchrom introduced a game-changing wireless solution that's compatible with three generations of transceivers and flash heads and offers Hi-Sync flash sync speeds up to 1/8000 sec.

The 20-channel transmitter is immediately recognizable by its large LCD screen that displays every light in your setup. The Skyport Pro will control the modeling light 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 and 656' outdoors.

One of the transceivers most exciting features is Hi-Sync technology that lets you use shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second, far shorter than your camera's standard sync speed. 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.

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

Visual Feedback Interface

The large LCD display of the Skyport Pro features two-way control via a Visual Feedback Interface that lets you see the exact power of every light in your setup right on the transmitter. Users control each light's power level and modeling lamp setting directly from the Skyport transmitter, which instantly shows the updated power settings.

Hi-Sync Technology

Go beyond the X-Sync of your camera. Photographers can simply switch to Hi-Sync mode and access sync speeds up to 1/8000s to freeze motion, overpower the sun, darken backgrounds, or use a wider aperture. The new ODS (Over Drive Sync) enables users to fine tune the Skyport plus HS transmitter's trigger signal to optimize exposure at high shutter speeds while gaining up to two more f-stops of light.

Impressive Wireless Range

The Skyport Pro has 20 frequency channels that can be used for either Normal or Speed mode, and a wireless range of 656' outdoors and 196' indoors. It also features a mini-USB socket for firmware updates. Users can instantly distinguish what sync mode they are in since the backlit display glows green for normal sync mode, and red for speed sync mode.

Compatibility

The Skyport Pro represents a seamless extension of the EL-Skyport family since it is also compatible with the three previous generations of flash units including the EL- Skyport Transceiver RX module for Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems and the integrated EL-Skyport modules for the BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB series. The Skyport Pro adds synchronization capability and two-way control functionality to all Elinchrom lights with EL-Skyport capability.

LCD Display

The LCD display shows each strobe unit's power settings and allows for full control of all strobes right on top of the Skyport Pro. The individual strobes show up automatically on the screen, and you can adjust the settings on top of the transceiver or on the strobe itself. You can see and control up to 10 different EL strobes with the HS transmitter.

AF Assist Light

The Skyport Pro also includes an autofocus assist feature to help cameras focus in low light situations. This avoids using the flash unit's modeling light which drains battery power.

question

I have impact 400w strobes will I need the ELS universal speed receiver to sync my strobes?
Asked by: Derrick W.
That is a transmitter. If you want to use that one you will need a receiver as well.The Elinchrom EL-Skyport has additional features that will only work with specific Elinchrom lights.With impact lights I would just use a traditional wireless sync. Some of those are listed below and the ones I am listing are kits with a receiver and transmitter.

Yes, the Elinchrom EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS for Nikon will allow you to use High Speed Sync when using the Elinchrom ELB400. Elinchrom states that they recommend output A (slower flash duration). http://bit.ly/1Snhv6P

question

Will this work as a commander for SB-R200s ?
Asked by: David A.
Unfortunately, this would not work as a commander for the Nikon SB-R200 flash. The commander unit that you would need is the Nikon SU-800 which is shown below.

I shoot both Nikon and Fuji. I am only interested in the high-speed sync on the Nikons (and I don't need TTL on either system), so if I got the Nikon-compatible model for that purpose, could I use the same unit to simply fire the flash on a Fuji camera?
Asked by: Nick
Yes you can fire the flash with Fuji camera and the trigger only manual
