Elinchrom ELB 1200 Overview

With its sleek, modernized casing and reduced form factor, Elinchrom introduces the powerful, portable ELB 1200 Power Pack (No Battery). The pack's good looks and convenience features are backed by high performance. Speed is the operative word. The pack can deliver its 1200Ws symmetrically or asymmetrically in 1/10 or 1 stop increments with 8.5 stops of power variability from 7 to 1200Ws. There are three flash modes: Eco, Default, and Fast, and the pack recycles to full power in 1.7 seconds in Fast Mode. Flash duration is an action-stopping 1/8850 second at 33% power with the optional Action Flash Head.

Elinchrom has redesigned the separately purchased Action, Hi-Sync, and Pro flash heads with use with the ELB 1200 in mind. The Hi-Sync head is optimized for HS shooting up to 1/8000 second, while the Pro head will give you 1/5050 second flash duration at 140Ws. True to its name, the Action head will give you the fastest flash duration of 1/8850, when set to 172Ws. Each fan-cooled head is outfitted with a bright LED modeling light that draws minimal power from the pack. The ELB 1200 has settings on its OLED display for On, Free (selectable level), Timer (1-60 sec), Proportional (to power level), and Dimming (from 5 to 100%).

Triggering options include a 3.5mm sync port, but the EL 1200 has a built-in EL Skyport receiver that will allow you to wirelessly fire the unit at distances up to 656' with the addition of an EL Skyport transmitter.

The EL 1200 runs on your choice of two separately purchased lithium-ion batteries. The standard Air battery will give you 215 full-power flashes and 80 minutes of run time for the LED modeling light. The more powerful HD battery provides 400 full-power flashes and 120 minutes of run time. One of these batteries and a charger are required for use of the ELB 1200.

Benefits

  • 7 x 5 x 11" (with optional battery)
  • 7 lb (without battery)
  • Large OLED control display
  • Fast recycling times (1.7 seconds in Fast Mode, 3 seconds in Default Mode)

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
