    Elinchrom EL19356 reviews

    EL-Skyport WiFi Module is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work For the money this product should be much more stable. In order to use the EL-Skyport app you have to forget your existing wifi network on your mobile device as it will not be able to pickup the correct IP info. Also, there seems to be connection issues with BRX 500 units as I am able to see my units just fine but I'm never able to actually connect to them. However, I am able to connect to and control my RX Ones just fine. Also, there are considerable delays when making changes to my RX-Ones settings tend to not sync correctly if you make too many changes too fast. I have all the latest firmware for my wifi device as well as all of my light units but problems remain. Great idea, poor execution on Elinchrom's part.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice iPad control Like the iPad control features. The overall concept is great for lighting setup. Some features require the USB unit (just ordered) as well as RX recievers with firmware that is current. Apparently the firmware can be updated via the USB module and software. So the overall concept is great but the necessary pieces are sometimes unexpected. If you own Elinchrom units you should own Skyport and the WIFI and other modules necessary to take full advantage of the Skyport capabilities.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allows remote control For a single photographer with no support I find this tool exceptionally useful. It allows me to know to know what my lights are set at and I am able to change the power level accordingly with how having to walk up to the light to take that shot. All I do is stay behind the camera and shoot, and make the changes on my iphone and away I go! What a time saver!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little things big difference Small but effective device. Cases the best solution that you can not carry the MacBook. Currently, the software is working in accordance with the ELC HD system. Some features do not keep control of it I guess would be resolved in the future. We are eagerly waiting for new firmware updates.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Spotty at best I was expecting more from the Elinchrom Brand which I have heavily invested in. I got this device to ease the process of adjusting lights that may be installed on a boom without pulling out a step stool or lowering my boom arm or having to run around and adjusting each of the 4 Elinchrom strobes that I own individually. However, the wifi connection is spotty at best. Sometimes it connects and sometimes it does not. When connected there are considerable delays when sending commands to my units. Also the wifi will disconnect if the iphone screen sleeps/locks. I also purchased the USB skyport device for my Mac which appears to not work with my BRX 500s but seems to do ok with the RX Ones that I have. The software is a bit confusing with lots of extra unnecessary modules and windows. I guess all the extra bells and whistles would be ok if the standard control features worked well. I updated the firmware for the wireless module and still there is no consistency with connections/controls. I would advise purchasing this device until they improve the product.
