Elinchrom has just announced ONE, a tiny, but powerful strobe. The 131 Ws off-camera flash is the company’s first battery-powered moonlight, and it’s the size of a 70-200 mm lens.
Thanks to its small size, the Elinchrom ONE is super-portable. It’s similar in size, weight (1.5kg / 3.3 lbs) and even shape to a 70-200mm lens. It packs an internal Li-ion battery, and you can charge it from any USB-C source without proprietary spare batteries or chargers. You can get up to 725 full-power flashes on a single charge. In addition, you can take advantage of Active Charging and shoot while your light is attached to the power source regardless of the battery’s power level. With improved weather protection, you can use it on location and it will stay protected from the elements.
The Elinchrom ONE utilizes its 131 Ws of capacity to generate a light output usually seen in 200+ Ws units. At 1 meter (3.3ft) and 100 ISO, the ONE can achieve f/11.9, with the diffusion dome attached, and when combined with the HP Reflector, it goes up to f/45.2.
