With the EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro for Canon, 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 the D-lite 4 kit 2 of the older models and 1 of the newer models. Will I be able to use the High speed sync or HS feature with this transmitter?Also if I'm using the lights out doors does the power pack or power source I am using cause conflict with maximum shutter speed?
Asked by: Allen J.
If you own the Elinchrom D-Lite RX 4 kit, it would be fully compatible for use with Elinchrom's Hi-Sync system. If you are using the Elinchrom D-Lite IT 4 kit, while it would be compatible with Hi-Sync, the transmitter will not display the power of the flash, and you will not have power control of the flash from the transmitter. The D-Lite RX would allow you to manually control the flash's output power from the transmitter, and would display the flash's power setting on the transmitter. The Elinchrom D-Lite kits are designed for AC power. If using a generator or power inverter, as long as the units are designed and capable to handle the power draw from the monolight kits, there should be no affect to the monolight's output.

Planning on using this flash with the ELB 400 Hi Sync's, but might want to use with ELB 500/1200 TTL's in future. Is this transmitter the newest model that does TTL as well? The name matches Elinchrom's listing for the newest generation transmitter that does TTL, but the video and specs BH have listed don't mention TTL. I'm guessing this might just be a lack of updating on BH's end from the "Skyport HS" older generation to this one, the Pro? Thanks in advance for any clarification you can provide
Asked by: Jeffrey
Yes. It supports TTL mode
