The ELB 1200 Hi-Sync Flash Head from Elinchrom is one of 3 flash heads redesigned for use with the ELB 1200 battery-powered pack. If you're using High-Speed Sync to control ambient light, freeze action or to use wide apertures for shallow depth-of-field, the Hi-Sync head is for you. When combined with the separately purchased EL-Skyport Plus HS Transmitter, shutter speeds as short as 1/8000 sec are possible. Featuring aluminum construction, the head conserves battery power with the use of a 50 W LED modeling light with a tungsten equivalent of 250 W. The lamp is daylight balanced with a high CRI of 92 allowing it to be used for video if desired. The lamp gets 80 minutes of run time with the standard ELB 1200 battery. The fan-cooled head has a Silent Video Mode for sound-sensitive venues. Modeling light settings include On, Free (user-selectable) Proportional (to selected power level), Dimming and a 1-60 second Timer. A VFC (Visual Flash Control) shuts down the light after exposure and turns it back on when the pack has recycled. The ELB 1200 Hi-Sync Flash Head has a 5/8" receiver for light stands and will accept both 7 and 8 mm umbrella shafts.

For the ELB 1200 HS Head, what exactly does flash ...

For the ELB 1200 HS Head, what exactly does flash duration "Optimized for HS up to 1/8000 sec" mean? For the Quadra HS head, they stated it at 1/550 at t0.5.
Asked by: Ken
Depending on the camera and remote you can take the shutter up to 1/8000 with the ELB. HSS allows for fast shutters for controlling the ambient light. The older HS heads are for short flash duration. The length of the flash duration, the shorter the better, allows for you to freeze action.
