Powerful, inside and out, the ELB400 builds on the success of Elinchrom's Quadra units to provide photographers with highly portable and convenient on-location lighting. Equipped with an intuitive OLED display, the ELB400 provides photographers with advanced features such as Strobo, Sequence and Delayed flash modes, built-in Skyport, and enough charge for 350 full-power, 424Ws flashes. This set pairs the ELB400 with Elinchrom's petite but enormously capable Pro head, which weighs only 280g and fits into the palm of your hand, bringing studio-power lighting onto location. The kit also includes a Skyport Plus Transmitter, ELB400 battery, charger and assorted accessories.

ELB 400 Pro:
The Pro head is the standard head for universal uses. It’s the perfect flash for portraits and still subjects. It offers a great balance between performance and price.
Please note: The Hi-Sync usage is limited and depends on the camera, larger Sensors and mirror mechanics may limit the max sync shutter speeds.
Ever since Elinchrom launched the Ranger Quadra - the first portable studio flash system - in 2009, demand has grown for portable and truly versatile solutions to enable photographers to use flash outdoors, where their creativity is endless.
The ELB 400 goes a step further, taking the whole system to a higher level of creativity.
Enhanced with the intuitive Elinchrom OLED display, the ELB 400 now offers the same special features of the ELC Pro HD series such as strobo, delay and sequence mode. Outdoor creativity has just been redefined!
On the move, size is everything. Quadra heads are smaller, lighter and way more powerful than traditional flashguns. Tristan Shu - a French Sport photographer - speaks from his own experience: “Having enough power while being at the bottom of a snow crevasse at -10°C under several meters of snow to take pictures of ski riders jumping above me was something I’ve been dreaming of for a long time. The compactness of the ELB 400 system made them the perfect tool for the task, I was able to set these powerful lights in places where bigger lights wouldn’t have fit - and would have been such a logistic nightmare to carry over. The ELB 400 is so reliable, one less problem to solve, it makes my day so much easier!“.
Versatility is commonly a misused word. More than just a portable studio flash solution, the ELB 400 invites you to adventure, travelling and playing. Whether you’re beginning in photography, shooting sport, reportage or even studio photography, the ELB 400 is a real creative tool for every photographer.
Compatibility with all previous Quadra batteries, cables, heads and accessories is guaranteed. The whole Elinchrom range of accessories is compatible using the Quadra Reflector Adapter.

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
