Announced at the beginning of March, the Elinchrom ELB 500 is the most powerful battery powered TTL strobe in Elinchrom’s lineup. That in itself is cause for celebration amongst Elinchrom fans. But that’s not the headline feature. The biggest deal with Elinchrom’s new strobe is the fact that you no longer need multiple different heads for different purposes. The one head satisfies all the needs of the different Action, Pro and HS heads you’d require on the ELB400.
TTL seems to have become all the rage for big strobes the last few years. There are now TTL strobe options from Godox, Profoto and even Cactus, amongst others. Now Elinchrom up their game with the new ELB 500 TTL; A 500Ws pack & head system offering TTL, High Speed Sync all the way up to 1/8000sec, and 400 full power flashes on a single charge for use both on location and in the studio.
