Enhanced Power and Performance Features
The Elinchrom ELC 500 Studio Monolight has the impressive features we've come to expect from this brand. Short recycling times of 0.09 to 1.9 seconds coupled with flash durations as short as 1/9430 second make stop-action shooting possible. In fact, very high fps rates are possible at minimum power, as well as High-Speed Sync that allows bright background regulation with shutter speeds of a lightning-fast 1/8000 second.
Never miss a shot with Elinchrom's Skyport radio-frequency system compatible with 7 camera brands. You also get intuitive control of flash settings from your camera and your computer. Even non-Elinchrom units and speedlights can be integrated into the wireless setup via the Elinchrom Skyport Receiver Plus.
Engineered to Last
Every aspect of the ELC 500 has been designed and rigorously tested to deliver maximum reliability and extended lifetime. Elinchrom created the ELCs to last through your next adventure.
TTL, Manual Lock, Auto-On
The ELCs are ready to go the moment inspiration strikes you. With Auto-On, the unit is always in standby mode with your previous settings saved, and the onboard TTL speeds up dialing in your next exposure. The Manual Lock function enables a quick switch from TTL to Manual without losing exposure settings for quick adjustments or to explore creative effects.
Stay Cool Under Pressure
With Elinchrom's Smart Pro-Active Cooling, the ELC's learn your shooting style and adapt their cooling cycles around it, never interrupting your creative flow. Plus, their cleverly engineered airflow design and low-noise speed-controlled fan can handle the heaviest of workloads.
Explore More with Easily Mounted Modifiers
As important as a solid studio strobe is, the light modifier is where the real magic happens. The bayonet Quick-Lock system grants you direct access to Elinchrom's world-renown light modifiers. Combined with the ELC's bright, daylight-balanced LED modeling lamp to aid your pre-visualization.
Edit Less, Deliver Faster
Elinchrom's precise color science and accuracy over the whole power range enables you to deliver professional and consistent results to your clients with less wasted time and money in post-production.
Your equipment should never limit you. Whether you are experimenting in your living room or working in a large studio, the ELC 500 can acclimate. ELCs can be powered down to 7Ws so that you can reach your desired depth of field or add only a hint of light. Plus, with HSS, you can freeze motion, overpower ambient light, and darken backgrounds.
