A powerful tool for the discerning photographer
The ELC Pro-HD Compacts 500 and 1000 are the world's most complete, feature rich compact studio flash units. The result of over 50 years experience at the forefront of studio lighting technology. Designed and assembled at Elinchrom's HQ in Switzerland the ELC benefits from the highest Swiss specification.
Elinchrom President Chris Whittle says, "We set out to make a unit that would not only change the way a photographer works but also the way that they think. We believe the ELC combines everything a photographer needs with everything a photographer wants, plus the consistency and reliability that you expect from Elinchrom."
Recycling times are lightning fast (0.6s / 1.2s to full power, ELC 500w / ELC 1000w) while Swiss precision guarantees consistency of power output and colour temperature, shot after shot. Furthermore the super fast flash durations (up to 1/5000s / 1/5260s, t0.5, ELC 500 / ELC 1000) enable you to freeze motion like never before.
The ELC is the first unit to incorporate an OLED screen that displays every control for the most professional user experience. As well as Elinchrom's stop based power scale, you will now be able to see the power in Joules, flash durations and many other settings. A jog wheel provides easy navigation of the new menu.
Why the ELC Pro HD?
These compacts are the highest performing and most professional units on the market.
The ELC Pro HD compact is Elinchrom's latest unit. Available as either 500 Ws or 1000 Ws, the ELC Pro HD has lighting fast recycling times allowing photographers to experiment with the delay and photo burst function.
