Compact and lightweight, fitting into standard existing Elinchrom cases.
Changeable Reflector
Elinchrom standard bayonet, plus additional security breech lock. Accepts all Elinchrom/Prolinca accessories since 1974.
Modeling Lamp Switch
Features a switch to turn the modeling light on or off.
Asymmetric Distribution
Even though the Ranger Power Supply has symmetrical distribution only, the photographer is able to achieve a 2:1 ratio between the "A" and "S" series of heads. This works because the "A" heads have a duration up to 1/3250 second while the "S" heads have a duraton up to 1/1600 second. The "A" head is twice as fast, and draws twice the energy of the "S" head creating a 2:1 ratio.
Umbrella Socket
Centralized umbrella socket for optimized and even light distribution.

    Elinchrom Free Lite S reviews

    Ranger Free Lite S Flash Head is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast sync speeds w/ Pocket Wizards I shoot a lot of adventure sports, both here at home in the Pacific North West and around the world . I had the Ranger A Heads, and although they have an extremely short flash duration, I couldn't achieve fast shutter sync speeds over 1/200th via Pocket Wizards.With the S Heads, I'm now getting sync speeds up to 1/8000th (with some flash fading)!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed it, I got it Just needed the S Lite. I've been shooting with Elinchroms for several years. Love the consistency and reliability; controls are easy, battery's weight is very manageable for a female photographer/assistant.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great head tough, well designed S head. It has a slower flash duration than the A head but unless your shooting really fast motion, it works great. I use the A and S heads togeather on the RX SPEED AS unit too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Under Alll Conditions I've been using the Elinchrom Ranger system for close to ten years. I shoot professional snowboarders for a living and find myself in the gnarliest weather. These heads have the output power and durability that is required. I choose the S heads now because of their slower flash duration which lends itself perfectly to Pocket Wizard's Hypersync feature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and Tough! I dropped one light in the water... and the light still works... I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! BUT i bought another one! I am going to get one more battery pack too! Now i need a good durable travel case for the light set!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing flash head! This flash head delivers in light quality, performance and usability. It is the standard for this type of on-location flash needs and because of the price, is beyond anything pro-photo has to offer.
