Elinchrom has announced the Elinchrom FIVE. It’s a 522Ws battery-powered moonlight that offers up to 450 full-power pops on a single charge. It also features active charging, so you can keep it topped up all the time while using it when you’re near power. And we’re not just talking AC power, either. You can charge it up from any USB-C source without any proprietary chargers or spare batteries required.
It features a built-in continuous running 26W bi-colour LED modelling light, which should also be bright enough for some video uses. It syncs up to 1/8000 with High Speed Sync (yeah, we’re not talking about that tail sync nonsense), as well as TTL with a manual lock and built-in Bluetooth for remote control from the Elinchrom Studio App without the need for Elinchrom Bridge.
