    question

    What is the color temperature for this unit? Is it the same as the dlite 200ws? And does the temperature change with increase in flash power?
    Asked by: Mordechai
    According to Elinchrom, all of the current D-Lite RX monolights have a flash tube balance for 5500 Kelvin when the units are set to full power. Unfortunately, there is no information regarding what the color temperature would be at lower power settings.

    does this work with the Vello Captain Freewave?
    Asked by: Karen
    The internal receiver does not work with the Vello FreeWave Captain. If you use a receiver on the light then you will be able to use the Vello FreeWave Captain.
