  • 1Description

Overpower the sun and embrace high shutter speeds with the ELB 400 Hi-Sync To Go Kit from Elinchrom. This kit packs together the portable, battery-powered ELB 400 Quadra Pack with the Quadra HS head which is optimized for high-speed sync up to 1/8000 second. These revamped kits also bundle in the 7" Quadra Grid Reflector which provides an additional boost to light output. Additionally, it comes with a ProTec Location Bag that can protect and organize all of your gear during transport and storage.

Designed for both power and portability, the ELB 400 Quadra Pack is run off a rechargeable Li-ion battery that can deliver an impressive 424Ws of power while keeping the weight to just 2.8 lb. The pack can recycle as fast as 1.6 seconds at full power and works with the Quadra HS Flash Head to accurately work with high-speed sync modes of select cameras. The ELB 400 is also characterized by its integrated EL-Skyport receiver, which is compatible with optional EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS for achieving high-speed sync up to 1/8000 second with certain camera systems.

Another advantage of this system is the integrated EL-Skyport radio receiver, which allows users to pick up an optional remote to gain remote triggering and high-sync support. Additionally, it can produce up to 350 full-power flashes from the included battery pack.

    In terms of speed, the ELB 400 boasts recycle times of 0.17-3.5 seconds and flash durations of 1/1200-1/2800 when at 100% power. The pack also features an OLED display for clearly viewing settings as well as a 3.5mm sync port for a conventional wired setup. The ELB 400 can even have the modeling light set up with programmable timers in addition to the on, off, and continuous modes. And, for those on the move, the pack only weighs 4.4 lb with the included battery.

Elinchrom ELB 400 reviews

ELB 400 Hi-Sync To Go Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, adequate power. Accessories required Lightweight, adequate power for nearly any use. Hi-Sync works as advertised. Note that this does require use of EL Skyport HS for the Hi-Sync. If you don't have and don't plan to purchase this controller, no need to get the Hi-Sync head that is in this kit. Doing light meter measurements of the ELB 400 and the Elinchrom Pro HD monolight at the same output setting in joules shows that the ELB actually measures about a stop less using the same modifiers. Perhaps this is due to the geometry of the head? Also the reflector adapter is a necessary purchase as it is required to use any non-quadra Elinchrom light modifiers. I think it should be included in the ELB system, can't imagine much usefulness without it. The included carry bag is excellent. It is heavy but this is reassuring for protection. Kit is a bit pricey but in line with other name brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am buying another, it's worth every penny. To shoot at 2.8 in mid day sun, this just works. I've never had consistant success with Pocketwizards that I trusted to take them on an actual shoot. The Elinchrom ELB with HS head and their HS sender immediately worked. Not even one miss. It's intuitive to use and is well made of great quality materials. OLED very easy to read in bright sun. 26 Oct produces very nice light. Modeling light is handy and the battery life is great. Im not a fan of heavy monoblocs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Piece of Lighting Gear! If you want to take your lighting to the next level. This is for you! Not top heavy on the light stand and has almost double the output of the Profoto B2 but for a tad bit less of the price! It is Swiss made so you can be guaranteed of the quality. Recycle time is better than the B2 as well! And you can never go wrong with the Elinchrom Modifiers, they are what the top people in the industry use, commercial, fashion, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable power worth every penny. Love this. Its a little pricey but if you're tired of putting together several speedlights to get the power you need and need to be portable - this is the way to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hi-Sync works as advertised I like everything about the ELB 400 and Hi-Sync flash head. The long duration flash allows one to use shutter speeds up to 1/8000th. Very useful in darkening a bright background to keep the image within the dynamic range of my Canon 5Ds R. Unfortunately, one can't meter the proper settings (see my review of the Sekonic L-858). Nonetheless, with a bit of chimping one can arrive at a satisfactory exposure and balance with ambient light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Note on What's in the Box Be aware that the head, although pictured below shown with the standard reflector, does not come with it; only the 7" reflector is included in the kit; a bit misleading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing gear Hi-Synch changed how I shoot in the sun. Elinchrom has great gear. I wish I would have had this from the start. Really great experience working with it.
