Elinchrom ELC 500 Reviews
Better than before
I have used many Elinchrom lights and this new version is better engineered, more solid and a pleasure to use.
Best Elinchrom Monolight 2022
I bought 4 of this already for Product Photography. They are in so many ways better than the ELC PRO HD500... Nice Things: - Build Quality superior to the ProHd - Faster Flash Durationa starting at 3.3 power settings. (Action mode) - Cool to the touch LED modeling lamp. - Nicer tripod mount on the elinchrom system. - Modern User interface. The only thing that its less apealing is the slowe flash duration at full power, specially on standar mode. its 1/300s. Best under 1000usd monolight ever...
Major upgrade from Alienbees
Upgraded from Alienbee B400 to get a faster flash duration. These are also more powerful and just feel more well constructed all around.
Great value, one annoyance
I have a lot of the various Elinchrom moonlights. This unit is very solid, feels like a brick, and it does finally fix the annoying problem with the mount being wobbly, as referenced by the first reviewer. I added this item to the other heads to eliminate the loose connection on stand: BH #KUKG013212 MFR #KG013212. My one disappointment is the modeling light, wish they had kept the setup from the ELCPro line. This unit's modeling light is dimmer and has a blue/green cast, really ugly. Puzzling why they changed a perfectly fine setup. Otherwise this version of the Elinchrom moonlights is solid, and a great value considering its TTL and HSS capabilities, which I haven't used yet.
Good Light with Bad Match
ELC 500 fits on the stand with good stability and works great. It is a great 500W light with great features. If you go Elinchrom with these lights and need to add one or more 1000W mono lights then you better watch out- ELC 1000 does not make a good fit on the 5/8 stud. It is very shaky at the best with 10-20 degree play or plain impossible to secure. Their support does not answer email either. I have no experience with the 250W. I have a total of 9 Elinchrom lights. All work perfect except the issue with ELC 1000 mentioned above.
Outstanding product, very simple set up, works in minutes.
Circuit board replacement need
This ELC 500 TTL was purchased new in July 2021 to accompany my two new ELB 500 TTLs. After a firmware upgrade to version 1.6, an Error 4 appeared. I could not remedy this error. I contacted Elinchrom's head office. The staff suggested that the unit required either a full reset which may not fix the Error or it may be the capacitor circuit board. The unit has been sitting in an Elinchrom service shop for 4 weeks. They are waiting for a replacement board to be replaced under the 1 year warranty. With the pandemic, it may take longer to receive the board. I am unhappy with the electronic quality and should have purchased another ELB 500 TTL single head and battery unit.
Love them .
Bough my new elc 500 . Very happy with purchase and B&H customer service and delivery
