Revolving around an updated triggering system, the D-Lite RX 4/4 Softbox To Go Kit from Elinchrom is a versatile two-light kit comprising everything needed for basic lighting setups and wireless control. Beyond the two lights and EL-Skyport Plus wireless transmitter, this kit also includes one rectangular softbox, one octagonal softbox, a translucent deflector, a pair of light stands and light stand case, and a durable storage bag for the lights and light modifiers.
The D-Lite RX 4 is a portable, multi-voltage 400Ws monolight featuring five stop power control in 1/10th step increments. Fast recycle times of as little as 0.35 sec keep you shooting without hesitation, and a 1/800 sec flash duration at full power is well-suited to freezing fast-moving action. The flash is also characterized by its integrated EL-Skyport receiver, which is compatible with the included EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus for wireless remote triggering and power control from up to 656' away. This transmitter allows you to trigger and set flash power for up to four groups, as well as an all groups setting, and 16 different channels, which are split between eight normal channels and eight hi-speed channels. A locking metal accessory shoe connector allows you to secure the transmitter directly to a camera, a top hot shoe and a 2.5mm sync port are available for directly connecting an additional strobe, and a swiveling design helps to improve reception for more direct transmission.
Elinchrom D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 Flash Head
The Elinchrom D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 Flash Head raises the bar on the capabilities of a lightweight, portable strobe. The auto-sensing, multi-voltage flash D-Lite RX 4 recognizes any AC power source from 90-260VAC, allowing power variability over 5.0 stops in 1/10 stop increments. Recycling is a lightning-fast 0.35-1.6 sec. (115V) with flash durations as short as an action-stopping 1/800 sec at full power. But that's just the beginning.
The D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 is packed with professional and convenience features usually found in flash heads twice its price. Forget about tripping over PC cords. Although this head accepts one it also has a built-in EL-Skyport Receiver with eight frequency channels that can handle four distinct groups of flashes. Separate purchase of the EL Skyport ELS Speed Transmitter not only allows you to trigger your flash at distances up to 393' but gives you control of power on/off, modeling light functions and Speed Sync activation. Free software for Mac and PC computers is available, providing additional features such as Flash-Delay for strobing effects. Add an optional Wi-Fi module to the transmitter and you can use specially designed apps that allow full remote control via your for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
D-Lite 400W/s RX 4's bayonet mount accepts all Elinchrom accessories and softboxes up to 53" (135 cm). It comes with a power cord with a U.S. plug, sync cord, flash tube and protective cap. The included 120V 100W modeling lamp must be swapped out when using the unit in nominal 230V electrical environments.
