Tiny flash heads with full sized performance.
Specifically designed for photographers who like to travel light but packing enough power to overpower the sun. The best flash duration is at full power where you need it when you are out on a sunny location. The built-in Skyport system enables seamless synchronisation between your camera and the ELB 400. The OLED display features a rich and quick access to all features.
Power and Color
The new ELB 400 is rated at 7 to 425 Ws, divided over two channels A and B with two flash heads. The energy-capacity is a-synchronously divided into A versus B as 66% versus 33% which is the ideal ratio for making portraits. This asynchronous diffusion of light forms the proper contrast ratio for portraits.
The color temperature is 5500 Kelvin and very stable across the almost all of the ELB 400’s power range. The benefit of this may not be obvious at first until you understand that there are many, cheaper (and some more expensive) flash units that exhibit color deviations of 15 to 20 percent. If color is important to you, the ELB 400 delivers is spades.
To support HyperSync, you will need the Quadra Pro Heads (not the Action), and Pocketwizard remotes.

Fully compatible with the creativity demanded by every photographer. Quadra reflector adapter to use the full range of Elinchrom accessories.
OLED display with intuitive control of existing functions, providing simple control of all the new functions; Strobo, Sequence and Delayed flash.
Improved Lithium Battery
It is estimated you can work a whole day with one battery making about 400 to 500 pictures at 60% of the output and no modeling light.
350 full power flashes versus the former 280 previous battery at full power. Charging the Lithium battery is very fast, from dead to full charge within one and a half hours, and dead to 80% charge in only 50 minutes, providing another 280 full power flashes. If you work in the studio or on a location where there is access to a power socket, the battery can be recharged whilst shooting, recharging between shots.
