Does the power get reduced as shutter speeds increases from 1/500 to 1/8000 ?
Asked by: Hoa
If you are referring to using Hi-Sync, then yes, as your camera's shutter speed increases, the flash power received by the camera's sensor would be reduced. The flash can still physically output power at 1/1 full power at any shutter speed; but as the 1/800 second shutter speed would receive 2/3-stop less light than the same exposure settings with a 1/500 second shutter speed, the amount of light received by the sensor would be 2/3-stop (0.66 stop) less than received at 1/500 second.

question

What makes you prefer this over a Godox light?
Asked by: Gregory L.
The Godox is a great light. But the Godox build isn't as sturdy. I've broke 3 ad200's from a drop. Never broke a elinchrom from a drop. Also, the Elinchrom does HS. Which allows a greater power dump for more flash over HSS. I still have Godox gear. A bunch. But I also have 2 elb 1200's with both action and HS heads, 1 elb 400 and 1 elb 500 dual head. For the HS use and the quality. Also, I can use HS for the ELB 1200's and ELB 400 while using HSS on the ELB 500. So get Full power dumps in bright sunlight while the ELB 500 can be used as kickers.
