The ELB 500 TTL Dual To Go Kit was put together by the esteemed lighting manufacturer Elinchrom for photographers who require a small form factor, light weight, and superlative performance backed by the convenience of TTL exposure control. The kit includes a 500Ws ELB500 TTL pack with a lithium-ion battery, charger, and sync cord. Two ELB 500 flash heads with 8' cables, a 7" Q-Reflector, a wide reflector, Snappy Carrying Bag with shoulder strap, and a sturdy, nylon ProTec Location Bag with protective rain cover are also included.

Elinchrom ELB 500 TTL

Elinchrom steps into the TTL arena with the introduction of the ELB 500 TTL battery-powered pack. Measuring 6.4 x 7.12 x 3.6" and weighing just 5.5 lb with its separately sold battery, the ELB 500 is ideal for the traveling or location photographer shooting fashion, portraits, or editorial work. Using an optional Elinchrom Skyport Pro or the Phottix Odin II transmitter, the ELB 500 TTL greatly reduces setup delays, shortening the time between inspiration and execution by using your camera's flash exposure system. With asymmetrical power distribution over 7 stops to 2 ELB flash heads, photographers can make TTL power adjustments at distances from 328 to 656' depending on the transmitter they use. There's also a Manual Lock mode that allows you to get a TTL initial exposure "lock", and subsequently switch to manual mode to fine-tune exposure.

While the ELB 500 TTL outputs about 10 times the power as a speedlite, it has features that you'd only find on an advanced on-camera flash. The pack is High Speed Sync compatible, for example, allowing you to trigger it at shutter speeds as short as 1/8000 sec to control background brightness, freeze action, or to use wide lens apertures.

These advanced exposure features are backed by solid performance specs. Recycling is a very fast 0.05 to 2 seconds and flash duration is 1/3400 sec in Normal mode. There's also an Action mode with flash durations as short as a lightning-fast 1/20,000 sec - ideal for freezing water spray, splashes, and other effects.

The ELB 500 is powered by a separately sold removable lithium-ion battery that will give you 400 full-power flashes and an impressive 28,000 minimum-power flashes on a full charge. Convenience features include Active Charging, which allows you to charge the battery while shooting with AC power for an uninterrupted workflow. Power, performance, and TTL exposure control make the ELB 500 TTL hard to beat.

The Speed and Simplicity of TTL
The ELB 500 TTL is ideal for photographers in time sensitive shooting situations where the speed of TTL lets them capture fast-breaking images or for those who simply prefer the convenience of TTL. The pack's Manual Lock functionality allows photographers to get an initial "lock" on their exposure in TTL and then switch to manual mode to further adjust their exposure as they need or to explore different creative effects.
Wireless Convenience and Control of Skyport and Phottix Odin II
The ELB 500 TTL features a built-in Skyport receiver, Elinchrom's reliable and easy to use wireless system. Existing Skyport Plus HS for Canon and Nikon owners will be able to upgrade their transmitters to work with the ELB 500 TTL via a firmware upgrade with more brands to follow. Via their ongoing technology alliance, the ELB 500 is also compatible with the Phottix Odin II protocol. This lets a photographer trigger and control virtually any light or combination of lights in their collection with either Elinchrom or Phottix transmitters right from their camera.
Power and Performance
The ELB 500 TTL is powerful enough to overpower the sun, delivers 400 full-power flashes on a single charge and has a fast recycling time of 2 seconds at maximum power. The ELB 500 head is smaller than a speedlite yet delivers 10 times more power. It is lightweight enough to be mounted on a camera bracket or boom arm while on location.
High Speed Sync, Asymmetry and Active Charging
  • High Speed Sync lets photographers freeze motion with impressive sharpness, create a shallow depth of field, or control or darken bright backgrounds using shutter speeds as short as 1/8000 sec
  • Full asymmetry across two flash head connections provides a broad range of creative control
  • Active Charging provides the freedom to charge the battery while actively shooting in studio, making possible uninterrupted workflow
  • Photographer-Friendly Interface
    The large OLED display and intuitive controls of the ELB 500 TTL makes using the pack a pleasure.
    Elinchrom Li-Ion Battery for ELB 500 TTL

    The removable Li-Ion Battery for ELB 500 TTL from Elinchrom is a power source that provides 400 full-power flashes or 28,000 minimum-power flashes on a full charge. The pack's Active Charging ability allows the battery to be charged when shooting while powered by AC current. The battery has no memory effect, making it immune to partial charging and discharging. A built-in Automatic Fault Detection System will disconnect the battery if temperature, voltage, or current levels exceed safe ranges.

    Elinchrom Battery Charger for ELB 400 and ELB 500 TTL

    The Battery Charger for ELB 400 and ELB 500 TTL from Elinchrom accepts 100-240 VAC current to charge the pack's lithium-ion battery. The charger supports an Active Charging feature that allows you to plug in and charge the battery while shooting with AC power in the studio. An 80% charge takes 50 minutes, while a 100% charge is accomplished in 100 minutes.

Its Quadra front accessory mount (Q-Mount) is compatible with Portalite softboxes, and can also use full-sized Elinchrom or Profoto softboxes with an optional adapter. The flash head is capable of achieving flash durations as short as 1/3400 sec. in Normal Mode and 1/20,000 sec in Action Mode for special effects. It has a 14W LED modeling light that draws minimal power from the pack's battery, a 5/8" receiver for stand mounting, and comes with an 8' cable for connection to the ELB 500 TTL.

    Elinchrom Snappy Carry Bag with Shoulder Strap for ELB 500 TTL

The included shoulder strap is an easy way for the photographer to carry the pack but it can also be used to hang it from a light stand thanks to the bag's reinforced D-rings. The bag has a water-resistant bottom to protect the ELB 500 TTL from the elements.

    question

    Is this compatable with the Sony A7RIII?
    Asked by: Michael F.
    I recommend purchasing the Elinchrom EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS for Sony, B&H # EL19371, to use the Sony Alpha a7R III Mirrorless Digital Camera with the Elinchrom ELB 500 TTL Dual To Go Kit. The above transmitter would give you both Hi-Sync and TTL automatic flash output compatibility, as well as wireless triggering and power control, and will display the power output on the transmitter.
