Elinchrom RX 2 overview

  • 1Description

The Elinchrom D-Lite 200W/s RX 2 Flash Head raises the bar on the capabilities of a lightweight, portable strobe. The auto-sensing, multi-voltage flash D-Lite RX 2 recognizes any AC power source from 90-260VAC, allowing power variability over 5.0 stops in 1/10 stop increments. Recycling is a lightning-fast 0.2-0.8 sec. (115V) with flash durations as short as an action-stopping 1/1,200 sec at full power. But that's just the beginning.

The D-Lite 200W/s RX 2 is packed with professional and convenience features usually found in flash heads twice its price. Although this head accepts one, you won't need a PC cord. It has a built-in EL Skyport Receiver with 8 frequency channels that can handle 4 distinct groups of flashes. Separate purchase of the EL Skyport ELS Speed Transmitter not only allows you to trigger your flash at distances up to 393' but gives you control of power on/off, modeling light functions and Speed Sync activation. Free software for Mac and PC computers is available, providing additional features such as Flash-Delay for strobing effects. Add an optional WiFi module to the transmitter and you can use specially designed apps that allow full remote control via your for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

D-Lite 200W/s RX 2's bayonet mount accepts all Elinchrom accessories and softboxes up to 53" (135 cm). It comes with a power cord with a U.S. plug, sync cord, flash tube and protective cap. The included 120V 100W modeling lamp must be swapped out when using the unit in nominal 230V electrical environments.

    Elinchrom RX 2 reviews

    D-Lite 200W/s RX 2 Flash Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value We got this to add to our BRX 500 lights and to use it for lighting the background. It works perfectly - and can take the background easily to full on white (shooting @ f16/200/ISO100), and with a grid and diffusers can give a nice graduated gray or, with gels, any color we need. In a small studio (20x20x12), it is plenty of power - sometimes the 500's are almost too powerful. This should also work where lower apertures are desired or for fill and accent lighting. With radio control and decent recycle time, this is a great value - very light weight as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Using this as part of a product photo operation along with other Elinchrom monolights (and some older pack-and-head units). Compared to the BRX series the D-Lite series is a bit more light weight and feels less robust. But the functionality for the price is outstanding. The Skyport device, and the fact that the receiver is built in with this device, is a plus. I've used various pack and head units from other brands, and this compares extremely well. The ability to dial down the power in 1/10th increments is great, and the compatibility with the Elinchrom system modifiers is a real plus. We'll see about the long-term reliability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for a Studio Strobe Bought one of these quite a while ago as hair light, and found it good enough to be a key light, so bought a second. Nicely complements my 500W/S lights, and great for single/couple portraits that don't require the more powerful strobes. Solid build as I would expect, and there's a proportional modeling lamp which is always helpful. Don't forget the reflector is sold separately!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good additional Strobe to the RX4 kit This was bought to compliment the 2-Go kit I bought. Good third light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from D-Lite 200 flash head Manual on this lite could be better. The lite however is fast and gives great lite with my softbox reflector. I happy I talked to the sales rep as I didn't notice that the reflector did not come with the lite. Over all I am very pleased with this lite.
