Elinchrom ELC 500 Monolight
The Elinchrom ELC 500 is a 500Ws TTL studio monolight designed to deliver maximum reliability and extended lifetime. Also, Elinchrom's precise colour science and accuracy over the entire power range translates to delivery of professional and consistent results.
Freeze-motion and stop-action shooting are possible with this monolight, thanks to the combination of short recycling times of 0.06 to 1.1s (230V) and flash durations as short as 1/9430 second. Furthermore, very high fps rates are possible at minimum power, along with High-Speed Sync (HSS) that permits freezing motion, overpowering ambient light, and darkening backgrounds with speedy shutter speeds of up to 1/8000 second. Elinchrom's Smart Pro-Active Cooling enables the ELC to learn your shooting style and adapt its cooling cycles around it, without interrupting your workflow. Its integrated intelligent low noise, temperature-activated fan aids in keeping the head cool while lengthening the life of the flash tube. This fan works together with a cleverly engineered airflow design to handle heavy workloads.
The ELC 500 is built to acclimate to your lighting needs, with power that varies continuously over 7 stops from 7 to 522Ws. A 20W proportional LED modelling lamp enables you to preview lighting effects. Beside triggering with a sync cord, the built-in 20 channel radio receiver permits wireless adjustments to power, the modeling lamp, and others at distances up to 200m. Moreoever, Elimchrom's Skyport radio frequency system is compatible with seven camera brands. A separately available EL Skyport Transmitter Pro enables the TTL control of the light by these major camera brands. Even non-Elinchrom units and speedlights can be integrated into the wireless setup by using the Elinchrom Skyport Receiver Plus.
Indeed, the ELC 500 is designed to be ready and versatile. With Auto-On, the ELC 500 is ready in standby mode with your previous settings saved while onboard TTL speeds up dialling your next exposure. By using the Manual Lock function, you can switch from TTL to Manual without losing exposure settings when you want to make quick adjustments or explore creative effects. Its 100 to 240V power supply ensures you can use this light anywhere in the world. Elinchrom's expansive range of light modifiers can be used with the ELC 500, thanks to its bayonet Quick-Lock System, for the lighting magic you wish to create.
