Key Features
  • 1x Quadra Head Cable
  • Optimized for High-Speed Sync
  • Compatible with all Quadra Packs
  • LED Modeling Lamp
You really have to handle the Quadra HS Flash Head from Elinchrom to appreciate its size and weight. The head weighs just 0.62 lb and measures 3.1 x 2.9" yet gives full-sized performance from any Quadra power pack. Small is also beautiful when working in tight spaces or hanging the head on a grid or boom. The exciting news is in the head's HS (Hi-Sync) designation, which means that it's optimized for use at high sync speeds as short as 1/8000 sec. to overpower the sun or use wider lens apertures. It's also a great benefit in stop-action photography. The Quadra HS has several dedicated, optional accessories but purchasing the Quadra reflector adapter gives you complete access to the full line of quality Elinchrom accessories and light shapers. The head comes with a head cable, reflector, multifunction cap and a Quadra protective cap. Small size, lightweight, and great performance make the Quadra system hard to beat.

Hello, will this work with the Quadra Hybrid battery pack and the EL-Transmitter with HS for Canon to get the High Speed Synch? Willthe El-Transmitter with HS work with the Quadra Hybrid Battery Pack and get the full HS synch? Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
According to the compatibility chart provided by Elinchrom, the Quadra HS head would be HS compatible when used with the Quadra Hybrid pack with the EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS for Canon.

Does exposure decrease when camera shutter speed ...

Does exposure decrease when camera shutter speed going from 1/250 up to 1/8000 sec ?
Asked by: Hoa
Yes. It will decrease in the same way that the ambient exposure decreases as the shutter speed is raised. The flash burst burns throughout the exposure, above 1/250th, with this head, instead of being shorter than the exposure like at lower shutter speeds.

Hi. Will this High Speed head work with the Quadra AS pack? What the difference if I use this with the AS battery pack vs the ELB400 pack? So confusing. If I buy two of these HS heads, can I shoot full power on my Quadra AS pack as well? Thanks for the assistance.
Asked by: Henry
Hi,Yes the HS head will work on the AS pack. <a href= target= _blank ></a>ELB has the new user OLED interface with the addition of the Creative Suite for effects like Stroboscopic, Delayed and Sequential shooting.As one other person mentioned your full power will be affected as A and B ports use different power. Typically the rough ratio from A to B is 2/3's power in A and 1/3 power in B. Refer to your quick guide and you will see the B port is 33% less power than A port.I hope this helps.Regards,Will HBrand Manager Lighting, MAC Group US
