question

Can this be used to fire a Rotolight Neo 2 from a fuji XT2?
Asked by: Andrew B.
While the kit you list above would work, do note that the Rotolight NEO 2 LED Light has a built-in Elinchrom Skyport receiver inside the unit. As such, you would not need the receiver included in the above kit. You could just purchase the Elinchrom EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus, B&H # ELSTP, and trigger the built-in Skyport receiver inside the Rotolight NEO 2 LED Light. Unfortunately, you would not have High-Speed Sync (HSS) compatibility with the Rotolight NEO 2, as you need a dedicated Skyport Plus HS transmitter for HSS usage, and Elinchrom does not have a Skyport Plus HS transmitter for Fujifilm cameras.

question

Could this be used with Alienbees if I were to use the Skyport transmitter? I have a set of bee's and really would like to utilize HSS/HS other than my speedlights.
Asked by: Ben S.
You would need a miniphone-to-miniphone cable, such as the PocketWizard MM1 Miniphone to Miniphone Cable -12 , B&H # WICMM16, to connect the Elinchrom EL-Skyport Universal Plus Set to your AlienBees monolights. However, do note that this will not add High Speed Sync (HSS) or Hi-Sync (HS) capabilities to an AlienBees monolight. While you will be able to trigger your lights wirelessly, you will not be able to adjust the flash output power, and you will not have HSS or HS capabilities as these features are not built into the AlienBees light fixture.

My Dynalite pack has an integrated pocketwizard ...

My Dynalite pack has an integrated pocketwizard receiver. Will the Elinchrom transmitter talk to the pack without needing to plug in the receiver?
Asked by: Steven
You would need to get a PocketWizard to use with that packs built in receiver. You could use an Elinchrom transmitter but you will need to plug in a receiver.

question

Is there any battery level indicator on the receiver / transmitter ?
Asked by: Vadim
Hi,There is no visible battery indicator.The Transmitter and Receiver both run on AA batteries. Usually when AA batteries go the unit will just shut off or not turn on.Regards,Will HBrand Manager Lighting, Mac Group US
