Elinchrom BRX 500 overview

  • 1Description

Revolving around an updated triggering system, the BRX 500/500 Softbox To Go Kit from Elinchrom is a versatile two-light lit 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 BRX 500 is a portable, multi-voltage 500Ws monolight offering variable power control down to 31Ws along with a fast recycle time of 0.34 sec and flash duration of 1/1158 sec at full power for freezing fast-moving subjects. The light 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.

You can even use specially designed apps that allow full remote control via your for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

    The BRX 500 offers very fast recycling rates of 0.34- 1.45 seconds @ 115V with action-stopping flash durations of 1/1,558 sec. The auto-sensing, multi-voltage BRX 500 recognizes any AC power source from 90-260VAC, allowing you to use it anywhere in the world. Note: The head ships with a 115V modeling lamp.

Elinchrom BRX 500 reviews

BRX 500/500 Softbox To Go Kit is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice carrying case - great flashes I've only used them twice but I love them. They work well with my ELB400 and the SKYPORT too! The softboxes are simple to build and super light weight!
Date published: 2016-12-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lights for the price Lights work great and are exactly as I expected. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the included softboxes are a pain to setup. They do however provide a nice soft light.
Date published: 2017-03-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Over heat & slow recycling We have two sets of these available for hire at our studio and they are constantly over heating and shutting down after less than 80 fires. These heads have been terrible for our business and I would not recommend these to anyone unfortunately.
Date published: 2018-06-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too much power for portraits Too much power for portraits. Even at the lowest setting it's simply too much and you need a lot of space to distance the light (even at 100iso) and that is just using one light with a reflector. I now need to spend more money on a 250, which I was going to do initially, but was talked into this by the HH sales person.
