Elinchrom EL19371 overview

  • 1Description

With the EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro for Sony, Elinchrom introduced a game-changing wireless solution that's compatible with three generations of transceivers and flash heads and offers Hi-Sync flash sync speeds up to 1/8000 sec.

The 20-channel transmitter is immediately recognizable by its large LCD screen that displays every light in your setup. The Skyport Pro will control the modeling light and flash intensity of BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB flash heads as well as the EL-Skyport Transceiver RX for the Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems. Operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency, it has an enhanced wireless range too, triggering and controlling your flash heads at a distance of 196' indoors and 656' outdoors.

One of the transceivers most exciting features is Hi-Sync technology that lets you use shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second, far shorter than your camera's standard sync speed. Whether you use it to overpower the sun, freeze action, darken backgrounds, or select wider apertures, Hi-Sync opens up a new realm of exposure possibilities. You can even fine tune the transmitter's trigger signal with ODS (Over Drive Sync) for optimal exposures at high shutter speeds.

The EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro runs on AA batteries and has a future-proofing mini-USB connection for firmware updates.

Visual Feedback Interface
The large LCD display of the Skyport Pro features two-way control via a Visual Feedback Interface that lets you see the exact power of every light in your setup right on the transmitter. Users control each light's power level and modeling lamp setting directly from the Skyport transmitter, which instantly shows the updated power settings.
Hi-Sync Technology
Go beyond the X-Sync of your camera. Photographers can simply switch to Hi-Sync mode and access sync speeds up to 1/8000s to freeze motion, overpower the sun, darken backgrounds, or use a wider aperture. The new ODS (Over Drive Sync) enables users to fine tune the Skyport plus HS transmitter's trigger signal to optimize exposure at high shutter speeds while gaining up to two more f-stops of light.
Impressive Wireless Range
The Skyport Pro has 20 frequency channels that can be used for either Normal or Speed mode, and a wireless range of 656' outdoors and 196' indoors. It also features a mini-USB socket for firmware updates. Users can instantly distinguish what sync mode they are in since the backlit display glows green for normal sync mode, and red for speed sync mode.
Compatibility
The Skyport Pro represents a seamless extension of the EL-Skyport family since it is also compatible with the three previous generations of flash units including the EL- Skyport Transceiver RX module for Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems and the integrated EL-Skyport modules for the BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB series. The Skyport Pro adds synchronization capability and two-way control functionality to all Elinchrom lights with EL-Skyport capability.
LCD Display
The LCD display shows each strobe unit's power settings and allows for full control of all strobes right on top of the Skyport Pro. The individual strobes show up automatically on the screen, and you can adjust the settings on top of the transceiver or on the strobe itself. You can see and control up to 10 different EL strobes with the HS transmitter.

    EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS for Sony is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank You ELINCHROM !!! When I discovered that the EL-SKYPORT was available for sony , I rush to place the order. Great transmitter . I use it with my Quadra , Matter of fact that will provide a new life to the Quadra. Using the A & S head , I was not able to sync HS without a banding . The ODS adjustment help in limiting the black out. I probably need to change the bulb or buy a new head. All commands are available from the device !! For the Sony users , there are 2 small options which are not available . 1 - AF Assist : does not work , so you have to rely on the camera AF assist light. 2 - Sync Mode : Only 2 modes available STD, HS w/wo OSS Great product , well built , easy to use , using 2AA battery .. Would have been nice to have a hot Shoe protection as the Sony Hot Shoe has many contacts exposed .

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only game in town, but Elinchrom blunders. I use this trigger for my Rotolight Neo 2 kit. Build quality is superb, think Leica. It works. Even though there is plenty of unused screen real estate, this unit presents it's info in microscopic text. I have to use a magnifier to read it. This leaves me no choice but to memorize the unit so I don't have to read it, if I am to get any work done. I may just go manual, with a Godox trigger and forget it. Elinchrom made a big blunder with this unreadable screen. I'm hoping an update will fix this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price The EL-Skyport Transmitter + HS is well made but slightly large on my A7RII. Easy to navigate with a fair market price. Firmware upgrade is available out of the box.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustation This product really drops I had been using it in Nikon along with the ELB 400 and it was wonderful When i switch to sony a7r2 buy it immediately Well, magic is dead When you move to hss mode, which was previously automatic in nikon, you need to be a nuclear physicist to do accounts and see ODS topics for each speed Really useless to a customer and also frustrating due to lack of information on the part of elinchrom

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total desapoinment I thought it was going to work just like how they work nikon really well. In Soni one has to be a nuclear engineer to be able to decipher the configuration of this and work at high speeds. I really disappoints this brand because it does not give accurate information about the configuration
