With the EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro for Pentax, Elinchrom introduced a game-changing wireless solution that’s compatible with three generations of transceivers and flash heads and offers Hi-Sync flash sync speeds up to 1/8000 sec.
The 20-channel transmitter is immediately recognizable by its large LCD screen that displays every light in your setup. The Skyport Pro will control the modeling light and flash intensity of BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB flash heads as well as the EL-Skyport Transceiver RX for the Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems. Operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency, it has an enhanced wireless range too, triggering and controlling your flash heads at a distance of 196′ indoors and 656′ outdoors.
One of the transceivers most exciting features is Hi-Sync technology that lets you use shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second, far shorter than your camera’s standard sync speed. Whether you use it to overpower the sun, freeze action, darken backgrounds, or select wider apertures, Hi-Sync opens up a new realm of exposure possibilities. You can even fine tune the transmitter’s trigger signal with ODS (Over Drive Sync) for optimal exposures at high shutter speeds.
The EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro runs on AA batteries and has a future-proofing mini-USB connection for firmware updates.
