Can you buy and additional light to go with this kit or do i have to buy a separate box and light to have 2 lights?
Asked by: Erika
As the Elinchrom ELB 1200 Power Pack has two (2) outlets on the top of the unit for strobe head usage, you may use up to two (2) strobe heads simultaneously on a single Elinchrom ELB 1200 Power Pack. If you plan to use more than two (2) strobe heads, you would then have to purchase an additional Elinchrom ELB 1200 Power Pack.

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.

question

Hi, What are the differences between 'Hi-Sync' Vs 'Pro' flash heads ?
Asked by: Chulanga
It's flash duration. The Hi-Sync heads have a longer flash duration which provides a greater window for the shutter to synchronize at higher speeds.

question

Can old Ranger Rx Heads (e.g. A and S) be used with the new 1200?
Asked by: Noel Truitt
Hi,Unfortunately old Ranger heads cannot be used with the ELB 1200. Due to technology changes such as having a LED modeling lamp and the head cable connector changes, old heads are not compatible. If you have an old head and pack please consider looking at the Elinchrom trade-in plan as product is now shipping.I hope this helps.Regards,Will H
