Elinchrom RX Speed AS Overview

  • 1Description

This is an Elinchrom Ranger RX Speed 1100W/s strobe lighting kit. The "RX" signifies the ability to be fired by a remote control handset, or computer. The "AS" indicates the power pack's ability to divide the power asymmetrically between two attached Freelite flash heads. The power selection range is 7.5 f-stops. Lower the power to 7.5W/s, switch to slow recycle, and up to 5,100 exposures can be made.

Elinchrom Ranger Speed has flash durations as short as 1/2,310 second (with two "S" heads attached), ideal for sports, fashion, and theatre photography. Controls on the pack permit changing the output in 0.1 stop increments in an easy-to-read digital display.

This is a one head kit, which includes a Freelite "A" flash head, which provides an ultra-short flash duration. Also included is a 33" Varistar Umbrella/Softbox. The kit also includes a 7" grid reflector, an extra battery, multi-voltage battery charger, 16' special Elinchrom connector to PC sync cord, shoulder strap and a hard Ranger case.

Elinchrom RX Speed AS Reviews

Ranger RX Speed AS 1100W/s Kit with S Head is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavier than I thought Got this for limitless location work instead of a gasoline generator. It can accept other elinchrom strobes with an adapter except monolights. I have an extra battery that I rarely use. I thought I could use this for weddings as well but it is just to heavy even on a backpack for that kind of work. I kinda wish I had gone with the Elinchrom Ranger Quadra instead but those only have 400w of power. So in the future I will add another head to this Ranger and also get the two heads on a Ranger Quadra. Downside is that this unit does not have a skyport, you have to spend an additional $110 for it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't matter where the sun is I have been using this for just under a year. The strobe is great, especially in midday sun. Easy to use, even a 1st time assistant could make changes for you. I have approximately 4,500 firings of the strobe on my unit. Only issues I have had.. #1 too heavy for some of my assistants to cary #2 Batteries showing a full charge on the charger, then when placed in the unit they are only holding 10%. This has just happened recently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lights need more support This is a 5 star product but has some issues when it comes to getting parts at times. I love the lights they are amazing rugged easy to use and relatively light for Battery packs. My only issue is, for instance i ordered a charger the other day and found out that it a 4-6 week wait for the charger... Thats a bit much if your a working professional. What are you to do for those 4-6 weeks??? Other than that These ligths are every bit as good as profoto lights at around half the cost. Rodrigo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made me a hero! I do model portfolios and do most of my shoots on location with natural light. This system has has given me more versatility and I do not have to rely on natural light. It is portable, durable and easy to use. Thinking about getting another kit. If you do any type of portrait work outside of the studio - this is a must!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent location kit Overall, the kit is great. It does come with a adapter so that you can attach a Skyport RX slave. This was not clear in the B&H listing, so I bought a separate adapter. This is not necessary. The case is big and sturdy. I will likely keep the kit in the case for the time being. Otherwise, it comes with the pack, head, two batteries, charger, standard grid reflector, varistar umbrella reflector, a 36 brolly box, sync cord, and skyport adapter. Regarding the head and cable, they are permanently attached to one another. It would be nice if the cable was could be completely detached from the head. The umbrella/brolly box that comes with the kit is nice. Just behind the umbrella face is a back panel that blocks scatter and keeps more light coming out the front. The back panel is black on the outside and white on the inside. This makes it pretty efficient. The kit is also very well sealed against the elements. I have not used it on location extensively yet, but it looks like it will be pretty tough. Great kit overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awsome Kit Great powerful setup, well built and very portable. I have used Q flashes, Strobes, and speedlites but none compare to this setup for quality and power.
Date published: 2008-04-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from heavy, but solved with lithium battery Its pretty heavy with the lead battery, but I bought a 12v 12AH lithium battery with a high discharge rate and replaced it in the battery cassette, which cut the battery weight by 4 pounds. Much easier to carry around now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit I just can't say enough about these units--durable, consistent, easy to operate and the batteries last forever. I have two and use them all the time, as almost all of my work is done on location. The fact that I don't have to worry about where the power sources will be when I arrive is great, and it makes everything move much faster when it comes time to pack up and move to the next location.
